I wouldn't disparage someone's work because of three pounds, without knowing a little more info before making that kind of judgement.

you're getting in deeper and deeper, mine has less transitions and it will be around longer than most RX-8s. It's supported using the OE rubber isolators at both the differental hanger point and at one of the OE muffler hanger points. It's not going to break or fall off if that's what you're trying to imply.

I'm an engineer and work for a stainless steel manufactuer/fabricator; light gauge tubing is our business. I can tell where all the extra weight is just by looking at it and I'm only disparaging your excessive hype, nothing more.

i want something lighter than a dual but priced cheaper than the racing beats i need to know what muffler i should get i really like racing beats design but i want something lighter. I know of a place that can do an exhaust for a good price. So that is not the problem i am just worried that 1 year down the road i will have some kind of problem.

I also want the exhaust tip to face down so u cant see it from the back and have the exsisting exhaust holes in the bumper as a rear difusser to let the air out of teh back.

I'd guess somewhere in the 750 Eur range if it's mass produced

I got one custom made

Comes out the center of the car, through the little rotary symbole

The tip is in the shape of a rotor

has two resonators and a muffler

I made 270 whp @ 8 psi on the GReddy kit with it.
