Rogue Engineering Ikon exhaust
Well, I finally did it, I now am the proud owner of a new exhaust from Rogue Engineering. It's their Ikon exhaust system
Here's a little info on it from Rogue E.
And some videos made by Rogue...
Now, from my side of things.
First glance impressions were..
The tips are really mean looking, the exhaust is well built and slaps right on the factory system. It's a LOT lighter than what the factory system was. the height on the system is adjustable which is pretty cool. The welding was well done and Rogue's customer service was outstanding. The system came to my door within 2 or 3 days.
Now, on to the sound....
Now, keep in mind, I've had this system for 3 days now, so it's not fully broken in.
At startup the car gives you a nice roar, a good "intro" to how it sounds
Within the first few minutes, the exhaust is still warming up, so not too much different than the stock one. Once it reaches appropriate temperatures. it's Sweet. I'd say from 1k-3k RPMS it treats you to a VERY nice and aggressive rumble. Past that the car loosens up on the rumble but still gives you a nice deep roar. Now, in the higher Rpms 5k + surprisingly enough the car sounds close to the factory exhaust but a bit louder. And once you let go of the gas pedal you are treated to an aggressive rumble.
At Idle the car sounds noticeably more aggressive than the factory one, but not obnoxious.
Overall this system is a very nice complement to the way the car sounded from the factory, definitely more aggressive and very deep sounding, but yet not TOO loud.
And for those that say that all exhaust systems sound like a honda on crack..... I dare any honda to sound like my car ;)
But, anywho, here are the pics and vid...
On the first batch of pics, if the exhaust seems dirty it's because it was cover all over by some plastic stuff to protect it
Here's my shotgun :D
Very deep roll on the tips...
And yes, they are ~ 3 inches wide...
Now, the system installed...
Here's the factory setup...
Here's after.... (You'll notice the screw on that vacuum hose, make sure you do that)
And here are the two home made Videos....
This one was shot the night I got right after I got home...
