That exhaust is gorgeous! How is the sound at cruising? Website suggests it doesn't drone?

Thanks. Zero drone. It's a very loud exhaust and aggressive, but when you cruise at any speed it does not drone. Really pleased with it.

I would not consider anyone else. Brian has tuned hundreds of ST's, but a lot of them are local to me and some have been tuned for tens of thousands of miles without issue so I had good first hand local case studies of his work - needed a proven pro tuner like JST that is safe while maximizing performance. Yea, I am sure there are some other ok/good tuners out there so no hate here, but I am confident I went with the best.

Brian's customer service has been top notch, I have been to his shop, I have let him install some go fast parts and drive my car - trusted.

Post Stage 1, went with JST's lifetime tune so every time I added more go fast parts, I would send a log and after a short while he would send my revision. We did a couple revisions on Stage 3 just to dial her in perfectly. Highly recommend the lifetime tune from JST.

Love to see more pics and maybe video of the exhaust. Been reading great things about Thermal.

Where did you pick the exhaust tip up at? Same place that did the tuning?

Known Chuck @ Thermal R&D for nearly 20 years. His exhaust are efficient and drone free.

My car is being used for dyno testing, videos and sound clips.

I should have pictures and ? of my own at the end of the week.

Just noticed the replies to my thread and thanks. Looks like you got your answers on the exhaust. Highly recommend.

Really enjoying the ST - now running e30 stage 3 tune from Brian at JST. Amazing!

Exhaust is well worth the price. Zero drone and sounds great under WOT.
