How does this system fit with a body mount torque arm? My ride has a Spohn torque arm and the respective body mount. Thinking about this system with the TSP 1 7/8" headers, TSP ORY, this cat back.

I'm not sure about the Spohn set up. It should fit the newest BMR mid mount set up. I would look at the pictures in the first post to try to gauge if you think it would clear. As of yet, until it goes into production and we get more feedback I won't know fitment on every suspension set up. Is your torque arm a mid mount torque arm or is it still full length and just has a relocation bracket to take the mount off of the transmission tail shaft?

Will there be a single tip option? Or just dual?

Is it possible for us to find out which muffler this is and what the flow ratings would be for given muffler. Cfm etc?

We have the muffler made specifically for us. So you could call it a TSP muffler. The design and sound is similar to the Magnaflow cat back with slight modifications to the internal design. CFM would be similar to Magnaflow as well. Though with the cut out open CFM wouldn't matter as it would bypass the muffler entirely.

Would you consider it louder than a magnaflow? And have you tested it side by side with the magnaflow?


(All this secrecy and comparing it to the magnaflow makes me wonder if they're building it for you? )

No, Magnaflow isn't building it for us. Our system was inspired after the Magnaflow muffler to achieve a similar sound and flow with only slight changes to the internals. The sound is very similar, just a little more rumble. WOT is louder than a Magnaflow system even with the cut out closed. Interior resonance is almost non existent and zero rasp from the system I heard using our TSP y-pipe. The vehicle in the video is running a TSP 383 long block and the exhaust he had before (single 3" pipe with bullet muffler dumped) was almost unbearable on long drives. Plus forget about carrying a normal conversation with that old set up. The new cat back completely changed the way that car feels now. MUCH more comfortable to drive and when he want's to get nasty loud he just opens the cut out.

So much for that theory, haha!

I'm still on the fence as to which way to go, but given that my tuner feels strongly about Magnaflow mufflers, and seeing as you're saying you have a similar design, I'm leaning this way.

The hooker true dual option is tempting too, but it's hard to argue with a system half the price. And the cutout option is a bonus as well.

Ill have to double check the tips on my corsa to see if they're welded on, or clamped... If clamped I'll just use those (unless you come up with a single tip option...).

Or maybe it'll me a nice excuse to change to a CME tip.

This seems like an awesome system and I definitely am upgrading my catback soon, it's still stock. I'd like to see some more sound clips as mentioned before. Specifically a drive by with cut out open vs closed etc.

Also, maybe I missed it but is there a sound clip from the same car just with the rumbler to compare them?

Since we are still around a month and a half to two months out we won't be taking pre-orders just yet. Once we are about a week or so out of getting them in I will make an update and you can place the pre-order then. We just hate to run someones card and they not be able to get their part for almost two months.

I can appreciate that, I've definitely waited for some parts that took longer than expected in the past. Just trying to make sure I can scoop up a catback with a set of headers late this winter/early spring.
