, would be good to hear some longer recordings and at varied revs - though out the rev range in normal driving would be ideal, leading to that F1 crescendo.

Also pics showing connection points? How does it sound at idle and up to 3K? IMO the scud with valves closed sounds like an old VW beetle at low revs. I know that it is subjective but have you noticed any changes to responsiveness? Sorry about the barrage but I am really interested in this.
heat is insanely cooler, my carbon loves me right about now.
At idle, it sounds like stock exhaust w valves opened, like those w the Capristo remote valve control. Even at idle, the sound is already a lot cleaner and crisper. Watch my first youtube, the entire beginning is idle: Amazeballs ScudXX X-Pipe Sound Test w Kreissieg titanium tips - YouTube
No droning, gurgling etc throughout any RPM range. It is sublime.
There are occasional blowback pops when I downshift or let off the throttle in mid-high RPM, which I have been told by my fellow onlookers is when they notice some fire spitting action =) which imho is a plus.
In all seriousness, you guys need to just stop nit-picking / procrastinating
and just do something if you're serious about getting rid of that heatsoacker of an oem exhaust, which we all can agree has left much to lust for, esp. if any of you are like myself who came from a full tubi'd CS. The sound alone of my ScudXX X-pipe is unparalleled and nothing out there can produce this kind of sound, and the build quality, weight savings, heat dissipation are leaps and bounds better than oem, that is my own personal guarantee...I took the plunge, have already handled the pieces in my own hands and installed it, other than perhaps using titanium instead, I can't see how this could be any better.
Still the best $4.5k I have spent on the car, and I have put quite a lot into the car.
