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.

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:
