The GPP GTX2867R Gen2 Tuner Turbo Kit wins Dsport Magazine's (Forced Induction) 86 Challenge, with the quickest track lap, the second highest dyno numbers at just 10.7psi  without dangerous "boost creep" (4.5psi lower base boost level then one of the other turbo kits) and second highest overall Editor's Driving Impression score.   (for more details see below)
 
Watch Dsport's Review Video...



RECAP: of the 86 Challenge

With a winning overall score of 239pts, the Greddy Performance Products GTX2867R Gen 2 Tuner Turbo Kit FRS Challenger takes Win over the other Forced Induction challengers...

  • 239pts. - GPP tuner turbo kit      - (268.70hp / 208.38ft-lb @10.7psi)
  • 236pts.  - HKS turbo kit                         - (285.63hp / 221.05ft-lb @15.22psi)
  • 199pts.  - Edelbrock supercharger kit   - (248.29hp / 182.45ft-lb @13.79psi)
  • 193pts.  - Vortech supercharger kit       - (228.20hp / 183.30ft-lb @10.5psi)
  • 148pts.  - AVO turbo kit                         - (253.01hp / 222.85ft-lb @10.7psi)
NOTE:  For reliability reasons, GPP doe not recommend boosting more then 12psi on a stock FA20 engine.  Overboosting can lead to premature engine failure. 

The GTX2867R Gen2 Turbocharger in the GPP Tuner Turbo Kit is rated for 550hp and is easily able to make even more power by increasing the boost level (additional engine strengthening required)

To equalize all competitors, each car used the stock oem FA20 engine with the same: engine oil, radiator, oil cooler, coil-overs, anti-sway bars, brake pads, brake rotors, wheels, tires.  They were also tuned by the same tuner on 91 octane.

THE GPP RESULTS

The GPP Turbocharged FR-S had the quickest track lap, the second highest dyno numbers (at a 4.5psi lower base boost level) and second highest overall Editor's Driving Impression score.

Two New GReddy Exhaust Arriving in February


The EVOlution GT exhaust for the 1990-96 (SW20) MR-2 Turbo is styled to resemble the legendary Power Extreme II MR-2 exhaust of the late 90’s-early 00’s. This makes the Evo GT the ideal exhaust system for a modern, period-correct SW20 MR-2 build. This new and improved version follows the same beautifully laid-out dual off-set muffler with extended wrapping tips, but it now, incorporates superior construction, improved stainless-steel materials and precision tig welding. The more compact, dual, straight-through EVO GT muffler canisters allow for great flow for both stock and upgraded turbo 3S-GTE engines. Like all GReddy EVOlution GT systems, this 304 Stainless-steel exhaust carries a limited lifetime warranty.
 

-- ---- - --- -- 




The Supreme SP for the 2006-15 (GSE20) Lexus IS350 / IS250 features sophisticated exhaust note with an aesthetically functional design. The classic dual oval muffler axle-back system with large free flowing 63.5mm (2.5”) piping is comfortable to drive. Thanks to the two large SP mufflers, it has excellent sound suppression at idle and cruising. In spirited acceleration, the straight-through design makes the exhaust comes to life with a deep rich GReddy sound. Tradition double wall GReddy tips on each SP best matches the styling of the vehicle. Like all GReddy Supreme SP systems the fully hand-welded 304 Stainless-Steel exhaust carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty

Fact vs. Fiction: California’s New Exhaust Noise Law

 

 REPOSTED from SEMA Action Network:
      https://www.semasan.com/legislative-alerts/california/fact-vs-fiction-californias-new-exhaust-noise-law

https://www.semasan.com/legislative-alerts/california/fact-vs-fiction-californias-new-exhaust-noise-law

The Issue

California Assembly Bill (A.B.) 1824 was signed into law by then-Governor Jerry Brown in June of 2018 as part of the state’s budget process. The legislation amended how California law enforcement officials may issue a citation for exhaust noise violations.
The bill has generated significant concern within the industry and enthusiast community, along with some misinformation.  This document seeks to clarify the matter.  Most notably, enactment of A.B. 1824 did not change existing laws pertaining to exhaust noise or the sale and installation of aftermarket exhaust systems in California.  Here are the facts.

Were California’s exhaust noise rules changed?

No. Since 2003, exhaust systems installed on motor vehicles with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating of less than 6,000 pounds, other than motorcycles, may not exceed a sound level of 95-decibels when tested under Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) test procedure J1169 (May 1998). This was not changed by A.B. 1824.

Is it now illegal to install an aftermarket exhaust system on my vehicle?

No. The sale and installation of an aftermarket exhaust system remains legal in California so long as it does not exceed a sound level of 95-decibels when tested under SAE J1169 and complies with all other exhaust and safety laws and regulations.

If exhaust noise laws didn’t change, what did?

Beginning January 1, 2019, a motorist cited for violating the current California exhaust noise law can receive an immediate fine. Previously, motorists received what is known as a “fix-it” ticket, which allowed for 30-days to correct the violation.

What are my options if I get a ticket?

Consumers in receipt of a violation still have the option of seeking a certificate of compliance from the California Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) demonstrating that their exhaust emits no more than 95-decibels. This SEMA-sponsored program allows courts to dismiss citations for exhaust systems that have been tested and for which a certificate of compliance has been issued. BAR does not currently issue preemptive certificates of compliance.

If I get pulled over, will I receive a $1,000 fine?

According to the Judicial Council of California’s Uniform Bail and Penalty Schedules for 2019, the suggested base fine/fee for a first conviction is $25 with a total fee of $193.

I’ve still got questions?

Please contact Christian Robinson, SEMA’s Director of State Government Affairs.
