That's what I told him. Still surprising and impressive results considering that was part of the equation.

That said, you should find an m3 with quiet exhaust and an airbox/stepped headers just to experience it and have it in your 'library" imo.


Someone give me some stepped headers and I’ll supply that video

Just to update anyone who cares about the S-Glass box; I emailed Anthony and he said they still plan on producing one but it will be mid next year and the price difference they are hoping to achieve is 250 Euro. Not really enough to not get the carbon box IMO.

Cheers

Edit: I mis-read the email, the price now using in-house made trumpets would have been 120 Euro but he is hoping to source plastic trupets to reduce the cost somewhere around 250 Euro.

Agreed.

Personally, for only a ~$135 usd difference on a multi-thousand dollar conversion, that is peanuts. If it were me, as a company, I wouldn't even waste my time and would just stick to the full carbon version. I can't imagine the demand for an S-Glass box would be enough to justify spending any production resources on when for $120 more you could buy a superior product from full carbon. Perhaps it would make sense to produce it if it were the same cost as an Eventuri, but even still....You have to factor in accessory parts (which add up) for this conversion over the Eventuri which can be installed on its own.

I' rather see them make a full aluminized carbon airbox (like what was seen on those special trumpets) or other "exotic" carbon fibers. But that is just me...

I can snap a photo of the GOKE trumpets in a bit. If I remember, they're kinda weird looking.
