    Re: Now Available - KPE ATS 2.0T and 3.6L Axle-Back Exhausts!!

    Fraggy, here at KPE I am in charge of monitoring the forums, answering questions, and advertising our products to customers and vendors, and many days I work from my home office. When these exhausts were fabbed up, I was not at the shop to hear them personally! The owner and the sales manager are the ones that have been dealing with the creation of these new exhausts and I am the lucky guy that gets to do the fun part, tell all you great members about the new stuff we have for you! That is why I had to turn to the owner to answer your question! If any of you ever have a question that I can't answer, I will find someone who can!

    Thanks and sorry for bringing it up but I just think that tone doesn't help for prepping someones hearing to listen to a sound clip

    Excellent and much better the only thing different I would do is kill the music completely when it comes time to hear the exhaust.

    ATSFL we have been thinking about making both a cat-back and turbo-back as long as there is a demand out there for them. We really like to listen to what owners are asking for and try our best to give it to them. If you guys want us to make a cat-back or a turbo-back let me know and I will talk to the owners about getting a system built!

    CTSCHICK you read my mind and I am already on top of it!

    Fraggy our last reply was from an intern of ours who himself had not heard the system... therefore did not want to give any misleading information : ) I can assure you we spend allot of time and efforts to get this system dialed in... hand made right here in Phoenix, AZ using T304 Stainless sourced from the US and TIG welded for superior durability and finish. We offer lifetime warranty and a satisfaction guarantee!!

    I had to hunt down the video clip. The YouTube link is broken and so is the product link but I found the video clip on your site. Sounds good but I'd like to hear an in-cabin clip too. Any drone?

    Regarding the price, I'll be honest and say it was more than I was expecting. One of your competitors offers a full exhaust for the same price but it doesn't include mufflers. Again, this would be something I'm interested in if it's not too loud in the cabin and doesn't drone but your price doesn't seem competitive enough to sway me.

    When developing these systems we worked closely with several consumers, engineers and Cadillac Dealerships to find the perfect balance of tone quality, OEM fitment, finish and overall quality. Our systems are designed with the daily driver in mind, no obnoxious drone, no race car decibel levels. Just a nice mellow, clean and subtle deep tone to enhance your Cadillac's performance, appearance and sound.

    We completely understand that we are higher priced than many other "competitors", this is because our systems are twice as expensive to manufacture. We use the highest quality materials, TIG welding and locally source our materials and labor. All of which are much more costly than overseas labor, cheaper materials or inferior MIG welds. We do not cut any corners and in our case we do believe you get what you pay for. Anyone could buy a steak from Denny's for a fraction of the price of a steak from Ruth's Chris or Morton's... they are all steak right? We are not in the market to sell mass produced products to turn a quick profit. This is a world class exhaust system we are proud to build and we guarantee your satisfaction 100%.

    Still would like to hear an in-cabin sound clip so I can judge for myself. Interior sound is as important to me as exterior.

    Appreciate it. I think other potential customers will find it useful as well. Your axle back definitely sounds better than Magnaflow's.

    I would agree it sounds better, we also use higher quality materials and craftsmanship. Here is a link to the sound clip from in the cabin. The sound clip starts at a red light at idle and then I merge onto the freeway onramp, hit cruising speeds then performed an overtake to show you the sound. Its actually pretty quite in the cabin, there is more road noise from the 35 series tires than the exhaust.
