I've been wanting to get a larger exhaust system to complement my Alpha 10 turbo kit for sometime now, so I recently ended up choosing the Titan Race exhaust offered by GTC. What sold me on this system was the fact that its 102mm, the rear section is made out of titanium, its priced right, and both Ben and Sam (VegasGTR) convinced me that I would be happy with the sound.

It took about 5 working days to receive it from the UK to my door which was quick and everything arrived safely. The first thing I opened were the massive, blue rolled tips which look really good on my blue GT-R! The GTC 102mm midpipe dwarfed the HKS 85mm midpipe yet still weighed 5 lbs less!

Below is a breakdown of the weight difference between HKS Legamax from my car and the new the Titan Race system.

HKS Resonated Y-Pipe - 19 lbs
GTC Y-Pipe - 17.5 lbs

HKS Midpipe - 12 lbs
GTC Midpipe - 7 lbs

HKS Rear - 31.5 lbs
GTC Rear - 32 lbs

After installation I noticed the tips on the right side were a just a tad bit higher than the left, so I installed 3 washers (12 total) between the body and the two exhaust brackets on the right side of the car which lowered the tips down for a perfect balance between the left and right.

The system sounds great! I was a little nervous about losing the resonator, but to me its no louder than the HKS Legamax that I had on the car previously.

Enjoy the video and photos:

Glad you like Mike. The 102's are on every big power 35 here in UK and very popular in ME and U.S. They are heavier than the 90mm as have larger diameter pipe, larger packed mufflers and bracing in the right places

we have in stock now if anyone needs, contact us or Ryan @ Forged Performance who also has stock

I don't have the 102mm, but I have the GTC Ti 90mm exhaust and I am very impressed with it.  It is put together very well, welds and pi cuts look great, smooth inside and out.  I think that the 102 is actually quieter than the 90mm, but I really like the sound of my car with the 90mm, it might be a little loud for long trips where you want to just cruise but it is such a fun car and it sounds sooooo good when you hit it, no one complains.  If I had to do it all over again the only other exhaust I would look at over my 90mm GTC would be the 102mm Titan!  Give Ben a call you won't be disappointed.

I'm confused. What's the difference between the "GTC Y-Pipe" and "GTC Midpipe?" I thought a midpipe is a y-pipe and vice-versa. Is one resonated and the other non-res?

Mike is referring to the long exhaust pipe(mid pipe).
