GReddy SP2 Exhausts Available

GReddy just received a shipment of their New-Release SP2 full stainless steel cat-back exhausts the other day. You can contact your local retailer for more info on pricing, etc...

I've had the exhaust on my car since Aug. 9... the day after I purchased the RX8, so I can't really comment on the effects it has had over stock.

If you're in the Orange County, CA area, one or two of you are more than welcome to take a test drive and post your opinions - it is my only power modification to date. PM me if interested.

Re: Price Paid... the exhaust was a prototype from GReddy...

My offer still stands from above: If you're in the Orange County, CA area, one or two of you are more than welcome to take a test drive and post your opinions of the exhaust- it is my only power modification to date. PM me if interested.

Aren't those pipes awfully close to the plastic? Wouldn't enough heat deform them?

That was a worry I had at first, but one I've long dismissed... there're no scars, pits, or mars on the surrounding plastic of any kind. However, the exhaust temperatures have made the tips turn a tinge of gold... something you'd have to see in person.

So far I've done 6000+ mi. of driving, to include two 19-hour no-rest road trips from Los Angeles to San Antonio and back.

I like the way it looks and I definitely wouldn't call it ugly (if you ever see an FD on the road with pipe(s) this small it would be a miracle). My only concern is if you lean out the mixture with an ECU mod, then the exhaust gases might be hot enough to melt the plastic.

the greddy exhausts usually look nice, but from that picture it looks a little awkward.

sound clips?

is it CA street legal or an off-road only unit? I heard exhausts had to be under 85 dBs. Out of curiosity, is the unit made in the US or Japan?

They're manufactured in Japan. As a cat-back system, the SP2 exhausts conform to decibel limits under 95dBa... IOW, they're CA street-legal.

the tips are ~4.5" diameter.

Here's a sideview of sorts:
