It's October 95th, 2019 so still on schedule for fall.

While the M2C exhaust has not been shelved it's had it's fair share of problems and has become Dinan's own inside joke when referring to a clusterf#%+. Oddly enough, none of the delays have been due to anything internal within the building but rather as a result of integration into the greater HPI group and the desire to keep everything "in-house." That's all to say, at last estimate we were looking at a October 135th release or so (late February/early March).

Not ideal by any means and we are well aware of that. :/

It's going to be epic! I mean, I remember it sounding good... Then again I was a lot younger then so maybe I'm just looking back upon my youth with fondness.

Seriously though— from the M2C's I've heard in person over the last year or so I still have an affinity for ours. Yes, I'm biased but it's just a good blend — deep tone, volume increase and a bit of rasp/funk to make it fun and rowdy when you want it to. Your ear evaluation may vary if course.

Is this going to be a full catback only, or could be an axle back also designed to go with the dual inlets of the AA midpipe like a few other aftermarket options?

This was answered earlier in the thread but it's a half-back for lack of a better term. Retains the secondary cats for emissions reasons but has an axle back with an x-pipe/resonator delete so it's definitely more then just an axle back. Reasons for doing this were explained in that earlier post if you were curious. Would not be pair-able with an AA midpipe I dont believe.

Do you have any idea of HP performance increases and/or in combination with the Dinan +HE tune?🤔

Power increase is minimal with a little bit of extra power at the extreme top end of the power band. Nothing you are really going to feel/notice though so it really should be viewed as a sound only modification.

Probably the first exhaust I thought sounded really good over video. I wish the video was more in-depth and longer though. Maybe a new more detailed video when it's finally released? Might have to make me decide between this and the AA+Remus combo later this year.

Any updates? Has an equal length setup, eg Milltek been explored? Thank you.
