Meh, bummer then. They should have dyno'd to be able to sell more. I was wondering why in their thread they didn't post any performance gains. $1200 or so is a lot to pay for just sound on a luxury sedan.

Probably because of the availability of the car! Its pretty early and there are barely any companies that carries aftermarket parts yet so maybe just give it some time and they will have dyno results! They are supposed to dyno the gen 2 intake so it should be done in time! Either way, try and ask the stillen rep for more info!

Ok, thanks for the response. I guess my thought was, they obviously had a demo car to test the exhaust on, they should have ran it to the dyno while they had it...

Probably had time constraints! Same with mine! I only let them have my car for a few hrs to fit the exhaust for the hybrid sport and so they didnt get to do a before and after dyno!

Injen is wokring on the cold air intakes for the Q50.
Do not purchase the G37 intakes, it will not fit! unless short ram.

Exhaust, try meistershaft performance, but they are pricy.

Chip tune is already available (installed it on mine) stage 2 and 3

stillen is garbage even though they produce for nissan...

borla and magnaflow exhaust already available (dont recommend it)

brembo, akebono performance brakes are available already

It seems like hes going around to different threads bashing stillen's products (before was the splitter, now the exhaust), and R2C's products (their new intake coming out).
You're right miesterschaft does make great, mean sounding exhausts and are pricey as ****, but there is no need to bash on other companies, after all it comes down to personal opinion! Also im sure if you were to go visit MyG37 many of the guys would vouch for stillen's gen3 intakes and their products in general.

A bit harsh, but I guess everyone has their own opinion. I'm sure we all have our own opinions of this guy already ;)

What is it, $1200? That IS a bit expensive.

For any quality catback, you're going to be looking at that price, i believe ark grip at one point was 1400 for the G37, stillen catback for the G37 was around the same price as the current catback for our Q50 if im not wrong, and a tanabe madalion touring is going to be around that price as well, generally for a catback they usually run 1200+ if you're lucky you can find one from magnaflow or borla for 1000.

You want expensive, here you go..http://gthaus.com/ver3_ghprice.php?selMake=21&selModel=10390&selSub=10410&selPerf=2&selTip=2516%231.0%23none.gif&Submit.x=27&Submit.y=23&Submit=Submit#.Us4ao_RDsRo

But my complaint is no one that R&D this thing even bothered to have it dyno'd. So as far as performance is concerned it might as well be a gain of 0 HP. They should have done that, with some K&N filters, and potentially a chip and done some dyno tests. That's how most professional companies do things.

Whipping together a welded pipe isn't easy, but it's also not the most difficult thing in the world, either. I had a custom fabricator make me a custom exhaust for my 2010 Camaro SS it took him three total hours, start to finish, and it was perfect.

I'm just saying $1200 is a normal price for an exhaust...but usually it comes with some sort of documentation. The $1200 should include the price of dyno etc. That's why R&D is expensive which makes the exhaust expensive. Charging the same amount but with zero actual R&D is a ripoff.

Sorry, but truth.

If you go to Magnaflow you can see Dyno charts on quite a few of their exhausts. Just one example.
