Who knows anything of Gintani?

No they are not. I have spoken to Alex Gintani and he stated that he does not change headers at all but that he "extends the headers." This statement which I have asked on two separate occasions makes absolutely no sense because it means nothing.  "extending the headers" is the same thing as attaching cat delete pipes right after the header which is "extending" the header.   

 

The issue with many of these shops are that they are making exhaust for sound or fire and cracks and pops.  Ask one of them to post a before and after dyno. All these hops have dynos.  Do you wonder why they never post a before and after but post 75 videos of other things? 

Makes more sense. Thanks for explaining. 

Fortunately for me, I'm only interested in the sound and not the horsepower.

good point regarding before and after dyno’s. I suppose exhaust buyers that are getting exhausts for the sound aren’t too particularly concerned about power especially when the Lambo’s already have heaps of power. I know that the Stardropper exhaust for SVJ weighs around 80kg!!!! That’s a huge increase over stock.
 

Having said that, titanium exhaust systems are typically designed to reduce weight which adds performance that can’t be measured on a dyno.

Gintani has a titanium option, but at 18K and an unproven system I stuck with steel.

I kind of disagree. It’s one thing if it made no extra power but sounded amazing.  But how do you know it’s not losing power ? 
 

I’m not sure if you were around or remember but a couple years back when the factory was offering the race exhaust and tune and they claimed that it gained 10% power and now mind you this is factory not some little shop in California i’m not sure if you were around or remember but a couple years back when the factory was offering the race exhaust and tune and they claimed that it gained 10% power and now mind you this is factory not some little shop in California   

 

Well for once the smart buyer had his Aventador dynod the day before the exhaust installation by the dealership and had it immediately dynode after and he lost almost 50 foot pounds of torque in the process and gained 4 whp at 8500 rpm lol.  
 

He was in a battle with factory for months and they had no explanation and at the end of the day they completely removed this option which is why you can no longer but a race exhaust and tune for the Aventador from the factory cause they couldn’t even back up their claim.   

 

I don’t give a damn how good an exhaust sounds if I’m gonna lose 50 ft/lb

Oh I feel you on that. I remember all that. I do have a tune on the ECU for more hp, so that should balance me out.

Exactly!  That was a huge embarrassment for the factory.  It took them months and they still can't get it to match its claim and they pulled it in the end.

Another good proof is the Balboni exhuast.  The VB exhaust made claims on its sound and its looks.  It never made any claim whatsoever on increasing hp etc...  Its latest model for the SVJ claims there is quite a bit of weight reduction.  I met Valentino and the exhaust manufacturer earlier at the beginning of this year.  Both stated that there is no gain in hp; only its weight advantage would lead to a slight performance gain (along with the looks and the sound).  If there is one person on the planet that I would trust as far as all things related to Lamborghini's, it would be Valentino Balboni; especially when his name is on the product!

A lot of Japanese for example go for looks and sound but they probably tune their cars to minimise any losses. As I said their Stardropper exhaust weighs 80kg, if everyone cared about performance then Stardropper wouldn’t sell any.

Personally, I wouldn't mind if it gained no power as long as it sounds how I want it to. However, I definitely don't want to lose any power. 

That is a fair assessment except we still do not know that since no one refuses to post before and after dyno

Yup. I don't get it. I recall one tuner even went so far as post vids of the car on the dyno for an ecu flash yet no dyno results.:eusa_doh:

Well this thread now has a conclusion..... Turns out Gintani couldn't make the exhaust for other models. I waited 2 months on my order to find out that he promised something that couldn't be delivered. He gave me a refund. At least he can do SVJ's though.

 

BTW Stardropper (Brilliant by Sasaki-san) does not weigh 80kg. Lambo_Jesus is installing his today and he said the whole box with packing didn't weigh 30lbs.

looks like gintani was  misleading you or didn't want to sell to you,  he is acting a bit funny regarding the SVJ exhaust not wanting to show the design and stuff.  but yeah, I saw on the gintani insta page that he has indeed made an exhaust for his SV.

And it has two exit pipes like Stardropper....hmmm....

sounds are coo, most these exhaust on the market, they dont just not make any power, they will lose power and the low and mid range torque...........

Hi mate,  I hope everyone is fine.

GINTANI LAMBORGHINI HURACAN ECU TUNE

$2,999

Tuned by Alex Gintani himself, Gintani Tuning’s ECU Software is guaranteed to give you more horsepower, torque, and a more exhilarating driving experience by delivering usable power through improved throttle response and torque management. With additional ft. lbs. of torque through the mid-range, acceleration out of your favorite corner and onto the straight is noticeably quicker throughout the rev range. Gintani saves your stock/factory ECU settings so that you can revert your vehicle back to stock settings at any time. 

Tuning Methods:

Depending on the current update of your vehicle's ECU, one of the two tuning methods will be used...

OBD Tune

OBD tunes allow customers to simply plug and upgrade their ECU. We will ship you a Gintani cable along with instructions

Bench Flash

Requires ECU to be mailed in.

This upgrade requires you to send us your ECU for re-programming. You will be emailed a download link with detailed instructions after adding this to your cart and checking out.

You must fill out and include a copy of the ECU Information form along with your ECU upon sending it in. Please contact us if you need to send the form in any other manner.

Gintani saves your stock/factory ECU settings so that you can revert your vehicle back to stock settings at any time.

Shipping Details For Bench Flash

Shipping costs for sending an ECU to and from Gintani is the responsibility of the purchaser. You will be charged return shipping at checkout.  The ECU will be tuned the same day it is received and Gintani will then ship back the ECU using whatever method it was shipped in with. (For example: If you send in your ECU via Ground shipping, we will ship it back via Ground.  If you ship it via Overnight, we will ship it back via Overnight.)

TALK TO A SPECIALIST:

Get in contact with a Gintani specialist to see what method will be used when modifying your vehicle and to learn more about the installation process.
