Default Anyone seen this.

This is from Rainman in the GT forums but I think it will apply to both PT's GT and N/A.

Does anyone know about these aeroturbine ( http://www.aero-turbine.com/index.html)exhausts? They promise quite a bit:
Increased Fuel Economy
Reduced Temperature
Increased Horsepower
Increased Torque
Increased Engine Longevity
Reduced Backpressure
Does anyone have one? It seems to me like a good deal at only $199

Sounds like a good idea, but what does it sound like? Also don't dig the coffee can type look. I think a 4" outlet might look kinda funky on the PT. But if it works, hey why not? I'm still in the market for an exhaust.

Sounds interesting. Someone go for it and let us know how it works! I'm always looking for something out of the usual in terms of aftermarket products. Like Dream mentioned, that may be a big opening at the back (4"), but then again it may look alright in the end.

It looks to me like they simply copied a jet aircraft type combustion chamber and turned it into a new style free flowing muffler. I would like to hear a little less techno mumbo jumbo and a little more of this ( We installed this P/N on this car and got an increase of XX.X HP ) We have regular car owners spending their hard earned dollars posting dyno results from much smaller modifications.

I too was concerned that the sound clips don't have any 4 banger turbos (but I did like that Hemi sound). I would think that the 2.5" to 2.5" or at most the 3" to 3" would be the way to go on the PT. The 4" exhaust would look very rice.

Would love to hear from someone who actually tried one.

They'd have to show me more proof before getting my money.
I don't think it could increase exhaust flow significantly back there. By the time the gases are there, they've already cooled quite a bit. With cooling, they're more dense with less pressure... already providing some suction effect.

But you can get it for looks if you think it's pretty!

I thought I had posted here last night..

I guess I forgot to click "Post New Reply"[:I]

As Seen on TV!

I saw the "Two Guys Garage" program, where they performed an instalation of the muffler.

It looks nice and it is a traight thru system. The airfoil is just for sound control. The free flow comes from the removal of any obstructions.
