I would be interested in a muffler that has minimal drone with enough bark (SS sport), 3" quad tips at least (while still fitting the stock diffuser) and a free-flowing and sheds weight.

To me this is the ultimate muffler

Default Re: Help me bring a new exhaust to market

I'm currently trying to piece together a new exhaust for a track/street car. (Sees more track than it does street). BW is far too loud with headers, but i don't want to start hacking it up as it kills resale.

Most of these systems have much left to be desired whether it be, sound looks, performance, torque or power. There's gotta be something somewhere! I will hold off on any purchases if this is something that will come soon.

Depends on the midpipe configuration. Currently running an SS Un Res Sec 2 to an El Diablo and it's bottlenecked badly.

Tips gotta be on point. All I'm saying lol

I believe it's the other way around, as Millitek was long before Scorza

Robert Kubica stopped, looked the journo right in the eye and said: "I've seen it twice: the first time I was there!"

Yep.

But Millteks are heavy, so don't do that.

IMO, the ideal setup should start as a quieter muffler as one can always increase volume via headers/section 1. The rasp should remain, however, in a throatier and deeper octave.

Let me know if you need any help, I've worked with Scott extensively in the past bringing other systems to market.
Cool! I always wondered who you were talking about in previous threads.

Sorry I'm a little confused how will this work with stock style flanges if it is going to be 2.5 inches in diameter? Isn't stock 2.28 or 2.38? Or do you just me similar style connections and locations but still 2.5 inches in diameter?

Thought about that after I had posted. Tips look nicer, sounds pretty similar but maybe not quite as loud, which would make sense if it's heavier.
