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.

Performance

We observed a solid bump in both horsepower and torque throughout the entire curve, peaking at +7 hp and +20 torque — a nice improvement over the factory exhaust system while providing our aggressive, Meisterschaft signature sound and maintaining a drone-free cabin!

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.

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.

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_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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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

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.
