A good friend of mine (@cpc.me) is the Middle East dealer for IPE, so when I got a call from him asking if he could use my car for fitting the first IPE exhaust, I said why not.

Needlesss to say, the quality of their kit is fantastic. It came with everything, including new bolts and flanges and hoses. Driving home, it sounded insane with the valves open, and it was quieter than stock with them closed. I will take some GoPro footage tomorrow and update this thread. Meanwhile, here are some pictures and a video

it was an easy installation? how do you feel the car now? however it sounds insane ;)
The installation was very easy.. I only drove the car from the garage to the house, but I took it for a spin this morning (videos below).. can't tell a difference other than the sound.. I'll run against a friends stock car to see if there are any performance gains..

On a related note, I noticed that I'm getting a lot of hostility online because of the exhaust, so I'll just stress a few points

1- This exhaust was sent for free for test fitting
2- The original exhaust can come back at any time
3- I did not weigh the new exhaust or dyno the car before/after because this exercise was done to test the fitting only

This is my favorite comparison picture because it shows how the bends differ from stock.. the stock seem to get thinner at the bends

Where are you getting hostility? I am not seeing it here unless I'm missing something...

Sorry, should've clarified more, but I'm getting hostility generally online (RL) and on Instagram for desecrating the holy GT4 with an exhaust :|

Don't get me wrong...I have nothing against mods. But I find that it sounds worse than the stock.
It might be the mic camera quality. Do you have any stock videos with the same camera, so we can compare?

Hi Scooter

I accept that no exhaust is universally liked, so I'm sure this won't be liked by everybody,, The video doesn't do it justice, but still, I can see how many people will prefer the stock sound.. Porsche really did well with the GT4.. I don't have videos of the original exhaust unfortunately!

I would love to hear a video of it doing flybys from outside the car. Like some standing takeoffs, it sounds great! always loved the IPE exhaust for the Cayman S

The drive by sounds GREAT!! What kind of $$ are we talking with the titanium??
The Ti system might sound a bit more Ferrariesque as well!
