I haven't ordered my Street Race yet, but have PM'd with the guys several times. This type of customer service is unbelievable in a world where it seems the meaning of the word service has been forgotten. Many many cudo's to the guys at Solo it just doesn't get any better! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Thanks everyone! We're looking forward to our trip to Nashville. Adjusting the tips can be a bit tricky especially if you don't have two people. We would be happy to adjust anybody's tips if they need it. No appointment necessary, we'll see you coming.

Trust me, you'll make the switch
The exhaust note on the street race exhaust is perfect.

LV,
I'm having the S/R system installed on my GXP on Friday morning, at 9 am. If you're on the fence, stop by and watch, hear and drive (after the install ) an automatic GXP.

Well the S/R is installed, what a great design! I stood under the car a watched the whole install, they even add an additional support not on the factory exhaust. It sounds great, it makes the car sound like a sports car. It is very quiet at idle but really wakes up when you get "in" it. It seems like others have said there is much better mid band power and the turbo spins up faster. I won't even get into the HP/TQ issue who cares I LIKE IT!
