Dry carbon parts are so stiff it can slowly cause issues with the molds over time, unless they are machined out of metal or made out of dry carbon themselves which is extremely expensive for large parts.

The image itself isn't in that thread though, maybe it was edited out (or work is blocking it). I suppose it's possible the exhaust ended up all the way over here in New Zealand but it'd be nice to see some actual pics.

This is the image posted in the ad:
I wouldn't be too worried about the sound unless it was the old 70mm single. Be careful though if the price is unusually good (dunno how much they go for in NZ but they'd be big $ in AU) and the pic was taken from the internet... better check it out in person if you can!

60mm single and dual are too quiet from what others posted. ASM sirens are as quiet as the 60mm with 70mm singles being substantially louder (i have run both of these exhausts). gl!

Last ASM trunk has now been sold and is now discontinued. Hopefully the Seibon dry carbon trunk I have is good enough.

ASM only made dry carbon trunks? 2 Versions I know of:
Go Tuning Unlimited
Go Tuning Unlimited

I think the only companies that make a full dry carbon trunk now are the following:
Seibon(maybe discontinued too)
J's Racing
C-West

Huh guess I assumed they made a fiberglass one. Bummer they won't have any options for that going forward. Any idea about the varis trunk? Also I wonder if voltex has something with the wide body kit Evasive was making. I haven't see individual pieces for that kit.
