Any pictures of the exhaust tips the exhaust comes with? I'm interested to know if they're angled, rolled or dual layer, etc..

They are angled, dual layered tips. Once we have our photographer take the pictures, I'll post them up.

Sounds good. I can't wait to hear the footage with catless downpipes whenever Mo gets a chance to post it

I think he's still waiting to get our pipes back on the car. I have a customer coming in tomorrow with our 3" catless downpipes along with this exhaust, I'll see if we can get some time in to get a catless clip

That would be awesome . Only reason i'm not 100% set on buying one of these yet is I need to hear how it sounds with catless. After that first video I was hoping it would be louder so hopefully catless will do that. If you get the chance it would be awesome to see rev's, and a video driving away if possible

And equally important is an in car video. And please have the driver put on his turn signals for a while so that we can have an idea of the sound level of the exhaust. Really looking forward to hearing more info including availability.

I'm not a hater, I'm running thier DP's, but I can tell they were welded very hot (typical Chinese) and then a "pretty" TIG weld was laid on top of the hot welds for apprearance (and maybe to fill pinholes). Again, no problems with them except one of my v-bands to the turbo keeps vibrating loose. Loctite should fit that.

About this exhaust, I don't buy that it's drone free, and with catless DP's it will only get worse. Some people may live with it... We'll see with more reviews.

Our fabricators don't weld on top of welds, that'd be a bit silly although they do weld them a bit hotter than I'd like but it's all to ensure good penetration.

Nobody claimed it was drone free. There's some drone in the lower rpms when there's too much load on the engine, like any aftermarket exhaust has

Anyone who claims their exhaust doesn't have drone clearly misunderstands what drone is. The easiest way to avoid the drone is to not stick it in 6th when driving 40mph.

And where are these parts fabricated? Are they made in USA/Germany/China?

Test fitted with great success! These are officially on sale! Pricing will start @ $785 shipped. If anyone has purchased a VRSF product in the past, they'll be able to purchase this for $755 shipped. I'll have staged package pricing up shortly for those looking to purchase all at once..

I'm still waiting on pics and ad copy but I do have a few installed pics I can use for now. PM if you're interested in purchasing! I'll have pics up shortly of what the installed product looks like.

Would like to know as well before I purchase anything VRSF. It seems the question is being avoided. I'll probably just get AR's DP's so I have no headaches.

Most likely China. That's where their DP's & FMIC are made.

I doubt you'll get any headaches from their products, I run the DPs & FMIC, installed both on my own and didn't have any issues during the install and haven't had any issues so far(about 2 months) this includes 1 track day, 1 autox and probably 20 or more 40-130 pulls. If they can survive that, they can probably handle anything.

These parts are made in China, and so are all apple products and majority of things in your home. But unlike certain products from China, VRSF products look great and fit great and most of all function as you would expect. Big mistake to assume without trying it for yourself.

I'm honestly not avoiding it. I'm just avoiding answering triggz. He serves no purpose in here but to be a pest and the mods have already removed an entire page of his trolling.

I've stated plenty of times that most of our products are made overseas and I've always been open to it. These are made in China along with 90% of the other major brands that sell on this forum. ETS & AR are the only ones that make their products domestically.

We offer a lifetime warranty and I'll guarantee the product will outlast the ownership of your vehicle. With a lifetime warranty on fitment and durability there's nothing to worry about. If for someone reason someone decides to discriminate a product based on it's origin then there's nothing I can do but you should realize that the computer you're currently using along with almost all of the items you use on a day to day basis was probably made in the same country these pipes are coming from.

AR makes great products and I'd definitely recommend them if our pipes were unavailable for purchase. With that said, we've sold over 400 sets of these pipes and have dozens of glowing reviews.

I was reading the OP and was thinking it was some typical dual exhaust... and then I saw the pictures!

Looks great . Any clips catless yet? That's really the only reason I haven't committed to picking one of these up soon.

Who cares? Nearly all the exhausts "made in USA" are made in China. You can't judge the quality of a part based on the country it's made/constructed in.
