Can't wait for the review. I am getting ready to get my system. I almost forgot about the GB.

once your exhaust is broken in you can really notice the change in sound.

and yes the group buy will go on very soon. im going back to the dyno as i found the problem on why i lost power....vac line. thanks to logic i fixed it and used the ball bearing found in the golf tee post and reset the ecu by unplugging battery for 15 minutes, and yes i can now feel the power difference.

so my full review of sound clips, dynos, etc is comming as well as the group buy for all you e90 and e92 folks including quads
Are you going to post your review and group buy any time soon…thanks.

Congrats! Did you ever resolve the power issue that you first saw when you installed the exhaust?

Update: i haven't forgotten about you guys. my review is finished all its missing is the new dyno. after i plugged the vac line with 7/32" ball bearing and reset the ecu i NOTICABLY felt a difference right away.

the shop is full on dynos and next time i can go is mon/tues. so by wed/thurs night you will have my review.

as for the GB, orb informed me that people are selling complete kits, x2 90mm tips, connecting, and xpipe for roughly $2400. my original gb price for this in work with supersprint na was $2600 shipped.

don't be alarmed though. obviously the selling price of ss exhaust went down extremely and i will have to speak with ss na to discuss new gb pricing. originally they went for $2700 depending on who you bought from. so there is a big drop that we weren't aware of so ss na and i will have to rediscuss that.

so we are looking at a bit cheaper then what you can get at current prices on the systems.

The prices did go down about 500.00 over the last two months so check with them again. The price i had was no shipping so at least 100.00+ for this. Look foward to your review.

IMO, not worth the money!
...even if it was half the price that they're asking.

I dont get why we need dynos. Most buy for the sound. No exhaust is gonna give you more than about 15whp, and if you think about if someone is buying an exhaust for the HP, the money would be better spent on other parts.
