Anyone here in Sydney running the HKS SSM (Super Sound Master) or PPE Dual Mode exhaust?

Can I come over for a quick sound check?

There is an active PPE header group buy post here on the forum, you better ask there, might be able to pickup one from someone who's backing out.

Hi, you have the exact setup I'm trying to put on. Can you upload a sound clip if not too much trouble?

I already have the PPE headers and combo with JoeZ is just too droney for me.

Thanks to Chris of Lexus Chatswood, I got to hear this setup (PPE + Stock Midpipe + HKS SSM) in person today on a white MY14 ISF (Alcantara Interior). The weld & craftsmanship on the HKS SSM is just amazing. And you are right that the sound is raspy when rev in parked, but great tone under load. I think it's a good medium between the stock and catless setup, especially with PPE headers.

I'll be looking to buy HKS SSM and sell my JoeZ.

Catless?  Thats my dilema when my PPE Headers arrive.  Some say hardly smells, others say the smell will almost knock you out lol.  About an extra 800-1k to fit some based on the few places ive called around :-(

Looks good though :-)

 Bro - don’t bother. Little smell on start up and when you leave car, but when stoped at lights etc - windows down, can’t smell it

Depends on your situation mate, really personal choice. Can't beat the sound of a straight pipe catless exhaust roaring on track.

I use my F for school run and prefer sunroof tilted when driving, so I'm getting a HKS SSM with stock midpipe as an intermediate option.

HKS SSM with stock mid will only disappoint you.. its ... quieter then stock imo..

 

Even with PPE header? I understand the stock midpipe will restrict the flow.

Interim Setup: PPE + Stock Midpipe + HKS SSM (I heard this setup in person at Chatswood Lexus, pretty good)

Future Setup: PPE + HKS Midpipe / Custom Mid + HKS SSM.

Yup, I placed an ordered for one via Import Monster, the cheapest I can find but still cost a lot for an axle back.

Boys, we need to have an ISF meet-up to compare our mods and sounds.

Where is our friend Danny? Let's organize a EOY Lexus meetup.

Ppe, custom mid and hks ssm at full noise

Sounds good to me, that's same setup I'm going for.

How much would a custom midpipe for this application cost?

There is a US shop selling a new (old stock) HKS midpipe for $945 USD, too much for me.

Import Monster just told me the SSM has arrived their office in Japan, but the next container shipment to Australia will be in Jan next year :(

As far as I know it has been a discontinued item for a very long time,  my mid section was about $900 as there wasn’t much to it.
