RK Sport Dual Exhaust & C/F Diffuser

Good morning Solstice forum!

I would like to take this time to make all of you aware that we have a tenative release date of february 13th for our dual exit, stainless steel cat back exhaust system and at the same time we should have available the dual exit carbon fiber diffuser to match. We will also have the single exit carbon fiber diffuser out right at about the same time. Pre sale pricing is in effect for all three of these items and are as follows:

26091002 Dual cat back; Retail $495.95 Presale = $446.36

26012005 Dual exit C/F diffuser Presale = Over

26012004 Single exit C/F diffuser Presale = Over

RC

C/F diffusers are being Alpha test fitted as I type this (1-26-06) The pre-sale is over and we will be shipping these as soon as Feb 3rd. Also there will be an adjustment to the retail price as raw carbon fiber costs have once again gone up. Those who have pre-ordered will not be affected by the price increase. As of this message the Dual cat-backs are still on schedule.

RC

RC, Sounds Great! But, please explain what a diffuser is.

And, why is the single c/f and the dual c/f the same price. Please explain this too.

Thank you....

I/ we call it a diffuser being that it isn't really a rear valance. This is the lower, ceter section of the rear bumper that is blacked out on the Solstice also where the exhaust tip (or tips) exit under. Ours will be a replacement piece made from hand laid carbon fiber. So you will remove your stock "diffuser" and install ours right in its place.

The reason that the single and dual "diffusers" are the same price, is because they both use the same amount of material to manufacture.

I have retro'd everyones pricing to the pre-sale so your order is set.

The dual exhaust is designed by us and manufactured by our performance partners Magnaflow. Our dual is exclusively ours and the quality and warranty is exactly the same as Magnaflow's. (And it sounds gooooooooood )

I'm all about hopping in on this early deal, but nothing on this site is seeming to work for me. I can't login because it says it is under construction. And I can't proceed to checkout because it asks me to login.

How long is this sale going to last?

Here is a shot of the undercar with the MagnaFlow dual exhaust installed. This is an RKSport exclusive part:



The RKSport rear diffuser/fascia is shown below and IS PAINTABLE.



FYI-Our Pontiac GXP is similar in design and nearing finalization. The GXP product should be out in the near future along with publishable data ... for now we have to hold data until GM approval is reached.

Okay... is the grill removable from this rear fascia? I know the front grills are removable and was hoping to get both these and the rear ones chromed. In your product, are they removeable? If not, are they removable on the GXP fascia?

Thanks

In the RKSport prototype we had at the shop, the mesh portion is not integrated into the fascia ... It would be wise to call them directly or to wait for their repsonse to be exact.

The OEM diffuser is a one piece molded product whereas the RKS piece is hand laid Carbon Fiber with the metal mesh insert.

You have to log in as a guest buyer. The "My garage" log in will no longer be available.
