Hmm, weird. I ran whole TA Italia series without a singel issue on remaped stock ecu. Power still there or went in to safe mode?
This version does have a muffler. I agree, without would only be suitable for the track.....or you just lost another percentage of your hearing.
That’s my concern with the downpipe and 200CEL cat; unless muffled it’s just too loud for my already damaged hearing. A bloody nuisance.
I will, for sure.
A tuned ECU will most likely be more tolerant, as Rudi say, and might even neglect cat performance completely. All bets are off really, depends on what the tuner found to be sensible that day.I will, for sure.
At the moment, I am running on the assumption that my error light is an install problem, or perhaps a faulty sensor. My hope is that after a heat cycle from an hour's driving, a clamp just needed further tightening.
As I said, the dash light only came on shortly into my second drive, after the engine had sat and cooled from an hour-long shake down without problems eariler in the day.
I do not know enough about the system - there were three identical stored codes. Maybe the car only throws the dash light after three, or perhaps they all occurred on the second drive (I continued on for 20 minutes to get home after the light appeared).
My plan is to check for anything looking amiss this weekend, then clear the codes and go for a drive with my scanner at hand. I'll stop a few times and see if there are codes without a dash light. If there are, I may try to swap back to the stock O2 sensors (I had supplied new for this exhaust) to see if that makes any difference. My time, however, is limited so we'll see how far I get with this. Otherwise, it may need to go back to the dealer to see if they can find anything wrong.
Rudi ran his car for at least a while on the stock ECU without issue. But we know that the EU and NAFTA versions are somewhat different, and CARB compliance might mean more stringent monitoring of the catalyst. All just guesswork for the time being. Doing a little research on this as well.
Wife compared it to a lawnmower???? You probably got the muffled exhaust versionHi,
I am also a happy GMS3" customer (full set) ;-)
I still run OEM ECU, and I have not tracked the car yet due to the lock-down.
I still need to install my AW RACE ECU
The car now does a decent noise (my wife compared it to a lawnmower before) ... and indeed very loud ! Probably too loud for open roads and comfort/health above a certain age
Looking fwd to check the difference with the AW ECU !
The central exhaust & mesh are super erotic 😍
I haven't been able to notice the torque issue at low rpm on the road, and haven't suffered from any CEL.
The disappointment was that we had to remove the swaybar. Rudi explained his standpoint already ... but it is "surprising" ;-) Any news on the GMS swaybar by the way ?
Have a good Sunday !
I can answer from my perspective. I have tinnitus (too many years as a kid in small airplanes without any hearing protection - because you didn’t in those days). It really wasn’t made any worse by the GMS exhaust. Not having the race drone helps, too. That said, it is loud. But lower pitch. Resonated, high-flow car version here....
Did get tinnitus from this car 🎺
Appreciate that you are taking the time to get these right. That extra couple of bends on each side means more rigidity required, which must be a challenge without adding too much weight.ARB's are in the works. We still need a bit more time, but we are advancing steadily.
