Designed with luxury in mind. Meisterschaft for the 2015+ S-Class AMG Coupe

 

IMG_5917

 

Our Meisterschaft exhaust systems for the new S-Class AMG Coupe are available in two variations: The Meisterschaft GTS and GTC.

Below is the Meisterschaft GTC. Designed with luxury in mind, our Meisterschaft GTC exhaust system gives YOU the control. Featuring our electronically controlled variable chambers (E.C.V.C), the GTC delivers the best of both worlds. Wild when you want it, luxury when you don’t.

In Open (performance) mode, we are able to bring out the true characteristics of the Bi-Turbo European V8, providing breathtakingly aggressive revs with ample turbo whistle on the down-spool. The sound is perfection. Switch it to closed mode and the luxury is instantly back. Providing a drone-free, comfortable ride, just as you would expect from a stock Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

If valve control isn’t for you, we’ve got you covered. Pictured below, the Meisterschaft GTS provides ultimate performance and sound, at all times.

Looking for even more? Pair up the Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) or GTS (Ultimate Performance) with our optional cat-back SR mid-section for the ultimate sound and performance. For added convenience, this optional section provides a direct bolt-on installation, removing the need to cut your OEM exhaust. The cat-back SR mid-section deletes the factory middle resonators and increases the cat-back pipe diameter to 76mm, increasing flow and ultimately adding performance.

Our F80 M3 hits the dyno!

 

We put our BMW F80 M3 to the test and were ecstatic about the results!

Equipped with a Meisterschaft full turbo back configuration including catless downpipes, single 90mm cat-back LX pipe, and TITANIUM GT Racing rear muffler section, the car put down phenomenal numbers on our Mustang Dyno. No flashes or piggyback tunes were used, the cars software was 100% stock.

Lamborghini Huracan puts down great power with Meisterschaft Super GT exhaust!

 

Lamborghini’s new LP610 Huracan is one awesome car. It looks great, it’s agile, it’s fast, and it even sounds mean from the factory. Thus, we made it our mission to make the new bull look better, sound better, and perform… you guessed it! Better.

IMG_3459

IMG_3420

The first thing you’re likely to notice on a Meisterschaft equipped Lamborghini Huracan is the tips. Our signature vertical splits have been integrated into the exhaust system to give the rear end a more aggressive look, and to signify a Meisterschaft exhaust.

The OEM tips have also been replaced with Meisterschaft’s double wall LeMans style tips, perfectly fitted and matched to the aggressive angles of the Huracan’s rear bumper. The new look is stunning.

IMG_3226

IMG_3247
The Meisterschaft Super GT exhaust system is constructed from T-304 grade stainless steel (also available in Titanium), combining 63mm and 76mm piping to increase the flow but also retain just the right amount of back-pressure to return solid gains across the entire rev range.

dyno_huracan
Dyno results show peak gains at 15 horsepower and 13 ft/lbs of torque, but more importantly average gains of 20 horsepower and 14 ft/lbs of torque throughout the entire pull! We couldn’t be happier with the results!

Meisterschaft Super GT exhaust systems are available for pre-order now. If any questions you have about this exhaust system were unanswered, please feel free to contact sales@gthaus.com or give us a call toll free at 1-866-278-1896 (Direct: 1-630-787-1600).

 

 

 

 

Meisterschaft for the new BMW X5 35i!

With the new X5 release from BMW, we immediately jumped on the 50i M-Sport due to the twin turbo V8 laying under its hood! With that done, we’ve shifted our focus to the more practical X5 35i, housing BMW’s brilliant N55 engine (3.0L I6 Turbo).

We like the N55. We like it’s liveliness and its substantial power output. More importantly though, we love the sound it produces when paired with the right exhaust! So, we brought the right exhaust into existence.

Held to a standard of perfection, the Meisterschaft exhaust system is constructed using T-304 grade stainless steel and is TIG welded completely by hand.

IMG_2701

As the X5 is more commonly a daily driver than anything else, we had to accommodate both luxury and sportiness – resulting in two main variations of exhaust which are well known under the Meisterschaft brand: GTS and GTC.

IMG_2626

The Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) is the easy choice here as it delivers the best of both worlds: luxury & sport performance. Our electronically controlled variable chamber (E.C.V.C) technology allows us to replicate the stock exhaust sound in closed mode, which is subtle and quiet but has faint sporty tone when you really get on the throttle. In open mode however, it is smooth, sporty & aggressive.

IMG_2568

We also offer the Meisterschaft GTS, the GTS is more conventional and produces an aggressive note 100% of the time, not featuring a valve control function.

The unit we’re introducing now features 2x102mm Round Split tips on both GTS & GTC variations. The 102mm, or 4-inch, exhaust tips fit freely into the rear bumpers exhaust openings with a perfect gap all the way around.

IMG_2773

IMG_2758

We are also currently working on a 4x102mm Round Split version, for those who are looking for a very aggressive look at the back of their car. The 4x102mm will be introduced at a later date.

With our Meisterschaft axle-back installed, the car peaked at 250 horsepower on our all-wheel-drive mustang dyno, this was achieved with the GTC (EV Control) unit in the open position, making a total peak power gain of ~20HP and ~23ft/lbs of torque. In the closed position we saw 228HP and 236ft/lbs. So if it’s performance you’re after, open up that valve!

All in all we are very happy with the results of this new X5 35i. It sounded great and made excellent power once equipped with a Meisterschaft exhaust!

GTHAUS at the SEMA Show 2014

IMG_9261

This year at the SEMA Show, Meisterschaft was everywhere! From our own displays to clients cars and more. In this post we will share with you some of Meisterschaft and Roar Racing equipped cars we caught at 2014 SEMA Show.

In the above photo, at the Nexen Tire booth was our very own BMW F80 M3. In-depth details of the build can be found in our previous blog post titled ‘The Road to SEMA 2014′, however the vehicle featured a full chrome wrap, Meisterschaft Titanium GT2 Package exhaust system, and a set of 20″ forged duo-block wheels – an original design by GTHAUS.

Our brand new 2015 S63 AMG Coupe had also made the long journey from Chicago and was displayed at the Savini Wheels booth in the south hall alongside several other Meisterschaft equipped cars.

IMG_8506

The latest addition to our American Roar Racing line, the muscle division of GTHAUS, was our GTC (EV  Control) exhaust system for the brand new C7 Corvette, displayed beautifully on the wide body project below by Prestige Marketing and Savini Wheels.

IMG_9278

Impressive Wrap, a prestigious wrapping company based out of California built this M4. It is one of the first BMW M4’s to be fitted with a Liberty Walk wide body kit and was topped off with our Meisterschaft exhaust system!

IMG_9282

Lastly, at the Savini booth, was an old friend almost unrecognizable. Here is a shot of our former BMW E92 M3 Widebody, completely re-worked by Prestige Marketing but still running our Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) exhaust system!

IMG_8479

Venturing out of the south hall, along the apron of the building was a G55 AMG that was built by Auto Tech Interiors that ran our Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) with our signature Hexa-Tip setup!

Check out the gallery down below for some additional photos!

SEMA 2014 turned out to be a great time. We’d like to thank all of our dealers and fans that dropped by to say hello during the show and we hope to see you next year!

The Road to SEMA 2014

IMG_0137

We had a great time this year at the SEMA show and we hope you did as well, it is with somewhat of a relief that we can say SEMA 2014 is over! After several long weeks and late nights spent at the shop we completed our show cars within some ‘Mission: Impossible’ type deadlines.

From home, this time around, we brought two of our own: a brand new BMW F80 M3 dressed in black chrome which would be displayed at the Nexen Tire booth, and the all new S63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz which would be shown off by Savini Wheels in the south hall.

 

The F80 M3

Being a SEMA car, we had to outfit our M3 with only the best. We went with our full Titanium Meisterschaft GT2 Package exhaust system at the rear, with our complete turbo-back 3” cat-less downpipes, and optional single 90mm LX pipe, the end result was incredible!

IMG_7389

IMG_7438

We then fitted the M3 with our very first, very own wheel. Featuring forged aluminum duo-block construction, we are able to achieve aggressive concave without sacrificing structural integrity. Additionally, the bolt pattern has been placed on the spokes themselves, eliminating any excess weight.

IMG_7605

IMG_7591

Finally we had to make her shine. We went with a full black chrome wrap. This was a timely process, but turned out beautiful and was completely worthwhile in the end!

IMG_6518

 

 

The S63 AMG Coupe

We received our brand new 2015 S63 AMG Coupe just 1 day prior to loading. Working around the clock, we gave the new car a full detail, completed the graphics, and fabricated a completely custom exhaust setup to roll into the SEMA show with.

IMG_7251

IMG_7378

IMG_8123

Once the cars were completed, loading them onto the transport trailer and seeing them off was a great feeling, we made it!

Luxury First: Meisterschaft for the new generation S-Class

 

WM_WM_S550_900

 

The new S-Class from Mercedes-Benz is beautifully styled, luxurious, and features some of the most advanced technology we’ve seen in a car to this date, but it lacks one detail: sound. Fortunately we have a solution: Meisterschaft.

Well, it is a luxury car, yes, but it is also quite sporty with that 4.6L turbo V8, no? We thought so.

When developing the Meisterschaft exhaust system for new S-Class sedan we kept luxury in mind, because at the end of the day it is after-all a Mercedes-Benz flagship luxury car. Thus, we developed 2 systems for the new car: the Meisterschaft GTC featuring electronic valve control, and the Meisterschaft GTS for those who enjoy an aggressive sound all the time.

 

Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control)

 

mbW222_S550_gtc_01

 

The Meisterschaft GTC exhaust system features our E.C.V.C (Electronically Controlled Variable Chamber) technology, allowing the driver to control the volume of the exhaust system. Our E.C.V.C technology allows us to keep the luxury and comfort aspects of the new S-Class intact, while adding the option to have a sporty and aggressive exhaust note at the flip of a switch.

 

Meisterschaft GTS

 

mbW222_S550_gts_01

 

We understand that not everyone needs nor wants an exhaust system with valve control; they simply want a nice aggressive tone all the time. This is where the Meisterschaft GTS comes into play. The GTS system features the same aggressive tone and performance offered by the GTC in open position, all the time. And to some, this is all you really need.

 

Optional Cat-Back SR Pipes

 

IMG_1728

 

For those of you looking for more, looking for the ultimate performance and sound, we offer these. These are our full cat-back optional SR pipes for the new S-Class. These remove the restrictive middle resonator section and also increase the pipe size to 76mm for maximized flow, enhancing both sound and performance.

 

WM_WM_IMG_8769_900

 

We are very happy with the end result of this new generation S-Class. From a sound that was never there in the first place, the Meisterschaft exhaust gave it a deep, throaty exhaust note where the turbos can be heard loud and clear and can be made silent again with the flip of a switch. Check out the additional photos in the gallery below and our latest YouTube video car up top! Enjoy!

 

Introducing: Meisterschaft Exhaust Systems for the BMW F15 X5 50i!

IMG_5965

 

 

After a long reign, the E70 chassis has finally been retired and now BMW has introduced the all new fierce, yet elegant F15 X5. Being the gear heads that we are, we pursued the 50i M-Sport model to begin with as we could not wait to unleash the sound of the 4.4L Twin-Turbocharged V8.

Previously all of our systems for the E70 X5, among other industry standard exhaust systems had been axle-back only, this time we’ve done it differently. We sought after not only the most aggressive sound, but also performance. So, our all new Meisterschaft exhaust system for the F15 X5 is a full cat-back system which replaces the secondary catalytic converters, middle resonators, and rear muffler section. On top of removing all of the most restrictive components in the factory exhaust system, we also increased cat-back pipe diameter to dual 76mm in order to maximize exhaust flow, increasing performance as much as possible.

You can imagine that this new F15 X5 now paired with an all new Meisterschaft exhaust system sounds fantastic, which it does. But, as sporty as the X5 50i may be, it’s still not a sports car, it is a luxurious daily driver and a family car. So, we present the best of both worlds with the Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control):

IMG_5237
Pictured: 4x102mm (Round Split) Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) (SUS) w/ Optional LSR Mid Pipe (SUS)  for the BMW F15 X5 50i

 

The above pictured full cat-back system for the new X5 defines the term ‘best of both worlds’ featuring an electronic valve system that allows you to control the volume of the exhaust system. In the closed position, the exhaust note is subtle, quiet, and contained. Once opened, the power is unleashed. The subtle and quiet exhaust note becomes aggressive and strongly pronounced, the sound of down-spooling turbochargers becomes present and over all it simply screams performance.

If staying subtle and under the radar is not in your itinerary, then we have a variant for you as well. The Meisterschaft GTS. The GTS offers the same powerful exhaust note and performance as the GTC in open mode. The only difference is the lack of valve control, the GTS is constantly on, constantly aggressive. Pictured below.

 

IMG_5210
Pictured: 4x102mm (Round Split) Meisterschaft GTS (Ultimate Sport Performance) (SUS) w/ Optional LSR Mid Pipe (SUS) for the BMW F15 X5 50i

 

The optional cat-back LSR Mid Pipe which is pictured in the above photos of the GTC (EV Control) and GTS (Ultimate Sport Performance) completes the system. Not only does it maximize performance by removing restrictive OE components, but also provides for a full bolt-on installation, negating the need to cut your OE exhaust during install.

IMG_5256
Pictured: Optional Cat-back LSR Mid Pipe (SUS)

 

Both the Meisterschaft GTS and GTC (EV Control) systems feature 4x102mm (Round Split) tips, this massive quad tip configuration completes the look of the car and is a perfect match to the aggressive tone leaving the rear end. Minimal modification to the bumper was required to fit the quad tip setup, however it is well worth the result:

This new F15 X5 was a pleasure to work with, and we are very excited with the way it turned out. Now it’s on to the next project, stay tuned!

 

 

 

 

F80 M3 and F82 M4 Part II: Meisterschaft GT Racing and GT2 Performance Package

f80_gt_newsletter

In our last post, when we released the Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) for the all new BMW M3 and M4, we mentioned there was more to come… Well, here it is. The second installment of Meisterschaft exhaust products for the latest BMW M!

We understand that a valve controlled exhaust is not ideal for everyone, this is why we are bringing more to the table. Following in the footsteps of the E9x M3, the familiar GT and GT2 will live on, now with an all new modular design for the F8x M3 and M4.

Let’s begin with the GT Racing.

 

IMG_4622 final
Pictured: Meisterschaft GT Racing (SUS) with 4x102mm Round Split Tips

 

Our all new GT Racing system for the F8x M3 and M4 is designed to provide the ultimate street performance for your vehicle. Increased from the OE 63mm piping, our GT Racing unit features 76mm inlet piping that continues on into our dual velocity chamber design. Our velocity chambers have been engineered to maximize flow by accelerating the exiting exhaust gases, thus relieving back-pressure and resulting in higher power-output from the twin-turbocharged motor.

The exhaust note produced by the GT Racing is simply wonderful. Featuring a perfectly balanced sound spectrum from the lows to the highs the note of the GT Racing is pronounced, smooth, and aggressive.

Over the years, the M3 has been a widely popular track day car. As such, we kept track enthusiasts in mind while developing this new system. Here is where the GT2 Performance Package comes into play. When you order a Meisterschaft GT2 Package for your M3 or M4 you will receive a complete GT Racing exhaust system as pictured above, and in addition to the GT Racing system, you will receive a Super GT Performance X-Pipe section which serves as bolt-in substitute to the muffler canister on our rear section and is great for track and high performance driving events.

IMG_4694 final
Pictured: Meisterschaft Super GT Performance X-Pipe installed on the GT Racing system. (Included SR Pipes are not pictured)

 

The Super GT Peformance X-Pipe not only increases high-end power output but also serves as a sprung weight reduction, making it perfect for track day use! This simple bolt-in design allows the two parts to be interchanged in a matter of 10-15 minutes.

As you may imagine, the Super GT Performance X-Pipe does have an impact on the sound. The effect is an exotic, higher pitch, aggressive and furthermore intoxicating sound!

Both our GT Racing and GT2 Performance Package come standard with our 76mm SR Connecting Pipes. These allow for simple cut and slip-on installation. No welding is required.

For the diehard enthusiasts, our GT and GT2 Performance package rear muffler systems can also be mated with our optional cat-back LX pipes and turbo-back Downpipes mentioned in our original post which can be found here: http://gthausblog.com/?p=5839

GT2 Performance Package (with Super GT X-Pipe Installed)

Now Introducing: Meisterschaft GTC for the new BMW M3/M4!

M3-2nd-8

 

 

In 2008 when the BMW E92 M3 was first released, we developed the Meisterschaft GT and GT2 exhaust systems which became vastly popular due to their absolutely intoxicating sound and undeniable performance. Two years later, when the newly released Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) systems began gaining popularity, we received numerous requests to develop a Meisterschaft GTC exhaust system for the beloved V8-powered E9x M3. Thus, we went back to the drawing board and created a system which was perfect for the daily driver. In open mode, the GTC system brought out an absolutely wild, exotic, and aggressive exhaust note with unquestionable performance from the 4.0L V8. In closed mode however, that aggressive sound would become tame and docile, but would still sing a beautiful exotic song to let you know that it was a Meisterschaft.

Now, 2014, the E9x chassis is no more, and the F80/82 M3 and M4 are here. So, it’s time to show our cards!

For the first time in history, BMW has placed a forced-induction motor into an M3, and also now, they have named the 2-door version of the car, the M4. But, with the number of doors and naming put aside, we set our focus on the sound of the brand new 3.0L twin-turbocharged S55 engine. We found the OE exhaust from BMW to be quite clever, and interestingly enough, it featured electronic valve control similar to our GTC systems we had been producing for the past several years. Clever as it may be, this did not mean we could not improve on it, which we did. A lot.

Achieving the aggressive exhaust sound, as well as the performance that we were looking for out of the new M3 and M4 was not an easy feat. Countless hours, late nights, and many prototypes along the way is what it took to get us to our three exceptional designs, each engineered to perfection for the true automotive enthusiast.

Today, with more to come, we bring you the flagship model. The Meisterschaft GTC, featuring 100% manually operated electronic valve control to provide the most convenience to the user. Aggressive when YOU want it, quiet when you dont.

IMG_3936 final
Pictured: 4x102mm Round Split Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) [Incl. SR Pipes] (SUS) for the F80 M3 and F82 M4

Our electronically controlled valve system on the Meisterschaft GTC gives you the best of both worlds. With the valves in the closed position, the GTC system produces a sound that is comparable to factory, convenient for your daily commute or any other situation where you find yourself needing to ‘quiet down’ your exhaust. Open the valves and the fun begins. In performance (open) mode, the Meisterschaft GTC brings out the sound and performance of a true M car: aggressive, exotic, perfection.

Featuring dual 76mm (3-inch) inlet piping, our Meisterschaft GTC optimizes flow in performance/open mode to bring the most out of the twin turbocharged 6-cylinder. This unit is available with either our 4x90mm or 4x102mm Round Split Meisterchaft signature tips.

 

IMG_3927 final
Pictured: 4x102mm Round Split Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) [Incl. SR Pipes] (SUS) for the F80 M3 and F82 M4

Looking for more? These are our optional full cat-back Meisterschaft Dual L.X. Pipes. This set of cat-back piping features dual 65mm cat-back piping into our high-flow velocity chamber and back out to dual 76mm piping for a direct connection to our SR pipes and rear muffler section resulting in a full bolt-on installation. Additionally, our Dual L.X. Pipe section is optimized for horsepower gain. In the near future you can also expect to see a single version of our L.X. pipe – featuring enlarged piping diameter and optimization for torque gain.

IMG_4004 final

Pictured: Meisterschaft Section 1 Dual L.X. Pipes [with Velocity Box] (SUS) for the F80 M3 and F82 M4

For the real enthusiasts looking squeeze the absolute most power out of their vehicles, we bring you these, Meisterschaft Cat-less Downpipes. These remove the primary catalytic converters allowing the turbos to breathe freely and work more efficiently, resulting in significantly increased power. Pair these cat-less downpipes with our full cat-back Meisterschaft exhaust and a tune of your choice, sky is the limit!

 

IMG_4611 final

All in all, we found the new F80 M3 to be an amazing machine and we thoroughly enjoyed this development process. Make sure to be on the lookout for a secondary product release next week as there is more to come for the F80 M3 and F82 M4 from Meisterschaft!
