Hi Jon,

I have a Stromung right now.. it's toasted! Half dollar sized holes in two places. Stromung is not Stainless Steel, unless they've changed that. Yes, stromung sounds awesome, but I really want to go w/an Stainless system that will give a nice warranty.

The Eisenmann looks nice, but a bit more expensive--and I think Borla and SS is already way up there.

Thanks for the comments though.



Stromung. It is the same basic design as the Supersprint, i.e. straight-through rather than chambered. It sounds deeper than the SS at low RPMs due to the size and resonance properties of the tips but it really screams up top. The fit is top-notch...just as good as the new BMW unit I had on there.

I believe the Borla is a chambered design and won't sound as much like the SS.

Korman and TC Kline like the Stromung. I like the Stromung. What else could you ask for? :)

The other one to check is the Eisenmann from Bekkers. They only show the DTM tips but they can order straight tips. The main thing to look for is the straight-through design. That's what gives the muffler its beautiful high-rpm scream. I'm not sure what type the Eisenmann is but Bekkers could surely tell you.

Both the Stromung and the Eisenmann are stainless steel.

NE1 know if I can get a supersprint muffler with straight tips?

I think I like the sound of the SS better, but if I can't get it w/non-dtm tips, I will opt for the Borla.

Thanks,
Jack
