Full Kooks

Now I can finally end the hunt for a "perfect" exhaust combo. Very pleased with the overall fitment and sound. Thanks to Jason at hypermotive, JimIII at JDM and the staff at Kooks.

Man, I cringe when I see/hear engine rev videos. It is not healthy to rev an engine like that unless it is under load..... :eek:
It does sound good though!

Might be tough to get a rev match at 5500 going hard into a corner downshifting to 3rd without it.

You're right, but you have a purpose on the race course and the rev match/blip doesn't last any where near as long as the free revving that was demonstrated.

Yea just ribbing you a bit ;) Not much we do on the track can really be considered very good for the engine or the rest of the car for that matter :)

GD it! Nothing like feeling the pressure of getting Kooks LT because I already have the O/R H-pipe from them. Grrrrr.....
 
So what Tune are you running with this setup? I heard a Lopey Idle, but it certainly didn't sound like TracKey... and I from what I have heard with a Full Header Setup you need a "Custom Tune" anyways...
 
Very cool dude. Im waiting to get a full set of kooks....videos do exhaust no justice. Sure its 10x's better in person.

Did you do the installation yourself? I you did, how long did it take? Did you use a lift?

You only need a tune to get rid of the CEL, trackey sounds 10x better with the Kook's installed IMO.

You know what makes me sad? The apparent need and/or requirement for a tune in order to have longtube headers. What I wouldn't give to have longtubes and a catted midpipe that won't throw a CEL. Sure I won't get all the HP gains there is to offer without a tune. I will take what little I can...but alas, seems to not be possible.
 
Kook's has "Green cat's" that supposedly don't throw a CEL code, but they are pricey. I can't verify that though, I can only rely on what I've read.
 
Thank you for making it where i will be spending more money. This is awesome, only difference i may end up having is my magnaflow catbacks, love those too much to get rid of them.

The old addage you get what you pay for....So I don't mind paying a bit extra if I can avoid the CEL. Curious if anyone on here has done this. Although the OP's systems sounds intense! Love it.
