That sounds phenomenal. Kreissieg make arguably my favorite sounding exhausts. I've read that they're bloody expensive however.

The global site seemed to have em. Although for me the site was glitchy...maybe you'd have better luck tracking down some independent dealers.

This is a Japanese company.:)
The funny part is that European companys are making exhaust's that sounds like an american V8 and a Japanese company make an exhaust that sounds like an European V8 !!!!:rolleyes:

They wrote me back today and the price is 620000 YEN ( U$S 6200) :eek:
I'm still going to buy it.!!! :cool:

^ Haha, so true. Now if only an American company made an exhaust that (god forbid) sounded like a japanese import. I actually wasn't aware that Kreissieg was Japanese. I guess the name threw me off as it always sounded European to me (I guess that was the goal?:p).

I haven't got your email yet.
I don't know if it comes with the Hi-Flow cats, they do not mention anything yet.
I'm waiting for another e-mail from them, I let you guys know as soon as I get it.

Here is how the F1 Valvetronic works:

Maybe I'm missing something, but why would it include hi-flow cats if the whole point of the valvetronic system is to have two profiles; one that utilizes standard path and the other that bypasses the cats altogether. I don't see where you'd be using the hi-flows as you'd either run factory or no cats at all...

Yes, I understand. BUT, in the Valvetronic design page, it says "Not All systems are valvetronic" and I was not sure about R8 System. Is the R8 system defintately Valvetronic?

^OOH, I didn't catch that. I'm not 100% sure, but from the youtube description it appeared to say "F1 VT". Also, I just checked Kreissieg's website and under "options" for the R8 exhaust appears to be a wireless remote control switch for the VT. I guess the best thing to do is ask them directly as you were going to do.
