We finally got our first two QP Sport GTs last week, and I have to say I am definately impressed. While the looks are certainly worth noting, and the transmission shift speeds are more to my taste, I think the most impressive aspect is the handling.
I went easy since we had just gotten it, but its got some miles on it now, so I will definately re-explore its character, and post a more thorough review, but my initial impressions are quite good.

looking forward to that review! Especially if the 20' wheels are not too much for the ride and the exhaust note? Do you hear a lot of difference with the standard QP? Do you have it clear how it works? I heard it bypasses the mid-resonator or is it mid-muffler in Sport mode..... So the center-resonator should be bigger (normal one and valve and bypass).

I installed a Tubi but find it a bit too loud under partial load between 2-3.000rpm....a lot of resonance in that range also. So I was thinking to put stock mufflers back on and bypass the center one.....I'd really appreciate a line on the exhaust in your review to access if they improved it as much as handling and shifts....Thanks

I posted pictures of the GranSport exhaust baffle system, and the difference in the SportGT exhaust system on the other thread,

But I believe its just an H pipe removed from the center, and larger\smoother pipes used in that section. I'm not sure that its any different otherwise, however, I will know after I spend some more time in the car this afternoon.
