That's great to hear. Based on the clips you have shared, they have done an incredible job. Definitely the best sounding 3IS aftermarket exhaust I have heard thus far. Cant wait for it to get on the market!

This sounds like how an aftermarket exhaust should sounds like.
I really hope there is a AWD version.

Here is some in cabin video of the Ark GRIP exhaust prototype. i forgot to roll up the window until 5 minutes in. you'll hear some fender lining rubbing which played with my mind and i abandoned my lines at times... =/ the issue sounds worse than it really is...my fenders are actually fine haha.

you can hear the great growl in the low to mid RPMs and a good scream in the higher RPMs... enjoy!
