    I am looking to find anyone who has bought the RTM racing AWD turboback exhaust, either back in the day or recently. I'm trying to put together my GSX project car and want to get a sound clip of the exhaust so i can decide if i want to buy it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Wes

    This past spring I installed that kit on my car. Unfortunately my car is put away for the winter. For the price it's great, honestly. Machine welded, TIG I assume. The sound is generic fart can, maybe a little lower in tone, but not rattily like you often hear with Hondas. It's louder than I like, but that's just my opinion. It doesn't drone at cruising speed on the highway (~120kmh or 70mph) either thanks to the resonators.

    Something I liked was that the downpipe inlet is 2.25" (not 2.5" like a lot of ebay downpipes) so it actually matches to a 1g/2g O2 housing. It can hang a little low in some places, but if you get a variety of exhaust hangers you could likely tuck it closer to the body.

    If you're adamant about hearing it, I may have some dashcam footage. The audio probably won't be a good representation of what it sounds like in person, but muffler sound videos rarely sound the same in person LOL

    Haha as you said, dash-cam footage wont do much for exhaust sounds. What about compared to the STM exhaust?



    This one seems to have more deep tone than fart can.

    The STM tone is about right, but it has a slight rumble on throttle blips which I'm assuming is cam related. I have stock cams, no rumble on blips so it's a rather constant tone.

    I found a video from this past November on my phone describing what I think is a vacuum leak (which you can ignore because unrelated), but it has sound from inside the cabin at idle and a slight rise in rpm. Since you're mostly going to hear the car from inside, this is a decent representation of what to expect. I'd highly recommend wearing headphones, preferably ones with a good bass profile, otherwise you'll probably miss it.
