1.AR catted DP + FMIC

or

2.Eisenmann full exhaust
(I personally don't like how they sound, but looking for some HP gains)

orrrrr

3.meisterschaft end exhaust
(just for the sound)
FYI, how they sound:

AR CATLESS DP + FMIC is gonna give you bang for the buck.

Nope, the tune will take care of that. Go with the catless and FMIC, great gains and car will stay cooler.

+1

These parts are quite tempting, especially the FMIC since intake air charge temps increase a lot with just a few pulls to redline

Since you already run stg2 adding dp and fmic won't make that much of a difference on the power band, you'll just have a greater level of consistency making that power due to the lower temps on iat and egt and a deeper sound of course. If you track your car they are a necessity otherwise I wouldn't pocket out.

Imo the best sound on our cars is produced with catless dp and stock exhaust but the looks of a quad is great. I 'm not very helpful I suppose .

Anymore clips of the Meistershaft GTS? - That clip looks like it was done in Hong Kong so the sound is artificially enhanced by the tall buildings.

I was in the same position like yourself, and I ve recently ordered catless dp.. Everybody in here says that they sound really nice with stock mufflers, deep and throaty.. + many hp gains with it as well.. A bigger intercooler would def. help for more agressive tunes..

This seems like a no brainer unless you really don't want the extra power. But I'd go DP + FMIC
