This is awesome, I wish you guys came out with this years ago, I would have for sure bought it instead of what I have now.
Do you have any ground clearance pics of the I pipe?
Any better/longer videos with drive by's cruising and WOT?

Also Id like to make a suggestion, do you think it would be feasible for your guys to make a second, different muffler to fit this same catback but one that sounds like Corsa? I think you'd have some serious sales if you had this $500 catback that sounded like a $1000 corsa system.

Interested in some ground clearance pics as well. This is also already on my winter shopping list...

If you've ever looked inside a Corsa exhaust you will see why the price is a lot higher. There is a lot more going on than your typical chambered or glass pack style exhaust. At this time we are not looking into it. But I will make the suggestion. Price point would be higher than $500 though on an exhaust like that.

I will get with the owner and see if we cannot get more pics.

They can be made to fit. You will have to have an exhaust shop make an "S" bend and slightly modify the I-pipe for it to bolt up.

The built-in cutout is such a freakin' awesome idea. No more buying a catback and having to hack a piece out to have a cutout welded in. Gotta give props to Texas Speed on this one.

There's no need to make another system without the cut out. If you don't wish to run the cut out you can simply leave the plate on and it would run as if there was no cut out on the system. The video posted is with the cut out blocked off.

He already answered that

He is using our TSP 1-7/8" headers, TSP y-pipe, and new TPS cat back exhaust.

Hey Lonnie, the original pics on the 1st page got me to thinking. The last part of the y in the ypipe and the 1st section of the catback are both slip fit that tighten up with band clamps. What about maybe offering these pieces in 3.5" or 4" with an equal sized cutout for the higher hp guys? That seems to be where the majority of the exhaust section wanting an electric cutout is headed anyways. Most of the ypipe and catback could be used with the new pieces if a taper was built into them. This would give every F-body owner from mild to wild exactly what they need without an exhaust shop welding in other pieces or a loud all the time dual exhaust system to handle the power. That in my opinion would make this "The ultimate F-body exhaust system" Hands down.

That would be nice. I even considered that myself when we built this but this system was built more for the masses. We wanted to make a cat back that wasn't obnoxious and came in at a much better price point than the competition. Then we decided to throw a cut out in there for the fun factor. In order to make a 4" y- section and 4" small section with the cutout we would need to be sure that we would sell at least 100 of them. The tooling alone would cost several thousand dollars and from a business standpoint we just don't see selling 100 units. We made the 2" F-body headers and although we initially sold a bunch to the hardcore guys they have stalled out and rarely sell now. We don't want the same thing to happen to this.

That's awesome!

Sounds a lot like the magnaflow but a little louder and less toned down. Bet you guys sell a ton of these at that price.

Really liking the looks of this, with longtubes and cat less y my rumbler is pretty much unbearable for any conversations.

Looks awesome, love the tips and if it knocked it down at cruise I might be spending some money! Plus the cutouts, this looks good.
