In reality, the BRZ and FT86 was made to be a sub 30k car. These manufacturers went above and beyond with this platform to make this car affordable while giving the driver a very high end sports car feel. (Hence, the comparison between porsches and the like).
Our mission is not to have enthusiast like our exhaust systems from afar but to experience it by offering a quality exhaust system at a reasonable price set for this market.

Its rewarding to have the community like our exhaust systems but its more rewarding to see it on the road, displayed in shows, and performing on track.

Looking great! Glad to see the 3 different tip options shown! What is the weight savings/addition over stock? Any idea as of yet what the price point will be set at and/or if there will be a Group Buy for these at the start? One more question, now that the prototypes are finished, how soon until production release? =)

No group buy just Intro pricing at around $1000 (more at the $1000) and i want to say they said around $1600 after intro price. The finished product is on a boat coming to the states so they have not seen it in person yet but when they do they will have to dyno it just to make sure it produces power. As far as weight like i said they have to wait for it to return to the states. Give ARK around 3-4 weeks to complete everything.

This is the last system I'm waiting for info on before I make my decision. The wait will be very painful.

$1000 seems like a reasonable price to me, but $1600 is just a bit $$$$ for me. If I can't get in on the intro buy, then that'll definitely affect my decision.

well the intro pricing is around $1G and i said $1600 just to be safe its more then likely around $1400 and yeah cat back not axle back. They make great quality systems so if thats too much you should get a custom one made for $900 to $1000 with no guaranty results which is still fine but the fact its the i have seen some axle backs that are around $900+

just recommend people getting the intro pricing if they want this system.

I could be wrong so dont quote me on this but if i can remember they normally run the intro price for almost 1 year.

1000 intro price is not bad at all. Those Genesis guys are playing 1350 for their exhaust.
