A 10+ hours date is a very very good base for a perfect relationship!
This exhausts are the best option for power and lightweight lovers!
You will see
I think about getting one of this nice CO2 and fire cannons!

Thanks to Nate (Turbo329) received my Vandemon Titanium exhaust yesterday. Nate was terrific to deal with, kept me up to date on everything & responded thouroughly & quickly to my questions, just a pleasure to deal with. Really great job man!

Quality of the exhaust is fantastic, just really well made. It's even better in person, the muffler is art, the whole system is pipe porn.....From the online pics it looked to me like the muffler was a little more dull than I wanted so I was ready with materials I would need but was pleasantly surprised that it is much smoother & more satin than I expected so smoothed out & polished the headers, collectors & imo after the work the muffler & pipes look really well matched. Absolutely nothing wrong w/ the way the system comes out of the box, it's awesome, just wanted to dress her up some & once the pipe turns color should be even better... As Nate mentioned it took a while, spent the last 2 days working on it.

If anyone wants this done to their Vandemon, let me know I'm considering doing the work for other people, it's very time consuming to do it all by hand but rewarding.. Hope you like:

Rapidroy1,


Yes the gear mod is holding together nicely. It survived a hour long dyno session. Racer172 has also done the mod and he's done 3 track days and 2 dyno sessions since. The general consensus is that it's working out nicely.


BoostedH2 has also done it recently.
