No. Taking the car to Alamo Autosports in Arlington TX (http://www.alamoautosports.com/Page-Home_1.aspx) He's also going to do the install/tune of the Vivid Racing tuner. Alamo has a dyno so we'll be doing before and after runs. VR Tuned ECU Tuning Box Kit V2 Genesis G70 3.3 T-GDi 365bhp 2017-2020
ARK exhaust was installed today. I've put around 200 miles on it already. A combination of twisties, country two lane, city stop and go, lastly interstate at 80/85 mph. Gotta love TX ? Noticeable difference in sound quality. Not fart can ! Very mellow. Unnoticeable at highway speeds. No cabin drone. Both Corsa and Borla could learn from ARK. Excellent build quality. Techs at Alamo were very impressed. They work on a lot of metrics and have seen some real garbage come through the shop. Think back alley eBay type.
No ! Re installed the OE muffler cans yesterday. Left the ARK mid pipe in place. Better flow based on design. True X vs the restrictive H crossover factory mid pipe. After the initial install, I took a 600 mile jaunt to burn in the ARK exhaust. A combination of interstate and back road twisties. https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/texas/windiest-road-tx/ Dyno showed a mid range power loss. Not what one wants. Max gain was at WOT ......... WTF, I don't drive that way. The cabin drone around town is insidious to say the least. It sounds like a bunch of pebbles in a can being shaken violently. Exterior sound is just as annoying. Total Honda fart can effect. Not what one wants from a G70. The irony is that the ARK mid pipe w/ the OE mufflers provided the best sound/performance combination. Oh well, live and learn. I've lost more at the tables in Vegas.
