    We made a trip down to NC to provide some content and help support the good work Kooks is doing. In the convoy was two 720s, a 570s Spider and two modified C63's. There was a purple 720 already there that was tuned as is the green one. DME did the green one and I dont recall which tuner did the purple one but I was told that one seemed to be the fastest. Both of the tuned cars are running catless, mine has sport cats. The catless will shoot flames. I will post videos as they become available. IMO the catted sounds just right and suits the car but if you want something more aggressive then catless and a tune is the ticket.

    There are a couple short but decent videos here where you get a sample of the sound.

    Thank you. The consensus is that the catted sounds better, more F1 like although not as loud. I drove a total of 10 hours or so and no drone and not too loud in the cabin but when you hit it the sound is glorious.

    Something I thought was cool was the overwhelming positive experience by everyone at these remote areas we stopped at. People were awesome and wanted to take pics of the cars and ask questions. They probably never seen anything like these cars in person. On my way back we stopped for gas and two troopers came out of the store to check it out and asked me if I have opened it up and then offered some suggestions as to when and where. :)

    Part 1 of his video. There are a couple shots of us testing his car vs. mine. I can tell you his should be faster with the tune however I didnt notice much of a difference. He doesn't know this but I was letting off every time he caught up + I had another 230lb guy in my car + his luggage. I think the exhaust and down pipes helped me out. His tune was optimized for the straight pipes so I imagine he picked up power after the install.

    If you dont want to watch the silly stuff in the beginning you can skip through to about 12 minutes.
