Solo designed and manufactured this dual in, dual out true X design 11” muffler just for this application. The regular 14” muffler just wouldn’t fit, the space constraints that are inherent in the GXP for rear center duals offered another interesting benefit. The sound is very unique, this kits sound falls right in between the Mach and our Street Race.
A rear valence change is required to complete this look, please contact Norm’s Fiberglass (574) 255-7843 for your valence or diffuser order. ( The valence or diffuser is not included in the price of your Solo Kit) (www.normsfiberglass.com)
The GXP-RCD kit package totally transforms your GXP in both looks and sound.
Front Pipe:• 3” mandrel bent polished stainless steel with our quantum resonator built in to sweeten the sound.• Laser cut stainless steel flange.• Extra hanger included for support.• Heavy duty double braided flex pipe is used.• A very precise hand made flair is on the front pipe to alleviate having to reduce the pipe to 2 ½”.
Mid Section:• Dual 2 ½” pipes are used in this mid section.• This does not restrict the flow as dual 2 ½” pipes flow more than a single 3”.
Rear Section:• We decided to go with the more difficult design of a dual in dual out muffler.• This muffler is a heavily packed with ceramic fiber and stainless steel wool, and a true X design muffler. Made from stainless steel.• The tails flow into a beautifully crafted beveled 4” angle cut full bodied stainless steel exhaust tips manufactured by Solo Performance.
The GXP-Race exhaust system was developed primarily for the Auto Cross and other racers out there. It’s a full 3” polished mandrel bent single exhaust system that exits only on the driver’s side. It’s a no frills, light weight, no muffler exhaust kit designed for the enthusiastic racer.
Here are some attributes of our GXP-Race system:• Solo’s loudest exhaust kit for the turbo GXP.• Fully polished stainless steel cat back exhaust kit.• Includes all necessary hardware for installation.• Classed as a full bodied nosier exhaust kit.• Recommended for the enthusiast.• This is a no drone exhaust kit with no muffler.• This is a single exhaust.
Solo Performance chose the substantially more expensive 5” converter (most manufacturers of this type of converter use a 3” to 3 ½ cat body) for a few reasons:1. The more substance inside the better it cleans the exhaust gasses.2. The 5” coil lasts longer than the 3” as there is more contact area for the gasses to hit.3. The sound quality is much better. It’s a softer, less harsh, exhaust note with the 5”coil.4. This particular manufacturer makes this unit to last. Each individual coil is tack welded.
Stats:• 15 HP increase, 8 extra foot pounds of torque increase.
