Chossing the right GTExtractor Tsunami Configuration for your personal driving style

What is the best possible mounting configurations for the GTExtractor Tsunami Pipe?... There are 5 classic configurations that have been tested and played with in the past, this is simply to provide a mental picture and present the theories behind each and every configurations you may wish to try for your personal ride.

For presentation purposes, we shall limit the Tsunami configurations to 5.

The 5 ways to mount your tsunami are as follows:

The GTE Configuration 1 is the classic way of having your Tsunami pipe installed, it doesn't matter if it is a Car, Truck or Motorbike.... this is the easiest to perform for any exhaust welding shop.
This is ideal for racing, for the weight reduction advantage;
It also provides the best possible tornado sound pitch which is very distinct with the Tsunami Pipe.
Your engine is able to breathe well here, the mid range and upper range power band torque is also superb when you mount it this way. Normally, there are mufflers and silencers between the engine and the end tail section, there is a need to remove all of these and replace it with a free flow pipe between the engine and the GTExtractor Tsunami pipe.

 GTE Configuration 2 is ideal for street use. If Configuration 1 is for racing, Configuration 2 is recommended for street and daily use where performance and speed is not compromised.  This is a lot more silent or quiet than the first configuration. The  Tornado sound will only be obvious during upper mid rage power bands... somewhere above the 3,000 rpm range. If you are annoyed with loud noises... this is the next best thing to the racing configuration you can get. You need to install or mount a Free Flow Silencer between the engine and the GTE Tsunami pipe.
 The GTE Configuration 3 is a much more silent configuration compared to the first 2. You will not hear any whistling nor tornado sound anymore in this set up, not even in the upper power band range. But the performance is still there. This is ideal for senior citizens or executives who wish to drive their rides as sleepers... Like wolves in sheep's clothing.
The GTE Configuration 4 is a high torque approach configuration. It creates more torque on the lower power band range. There is also less noise in this set up, and there is no whistling sound either.  For those who wish to drive easier in traffic, this configuration is ideal. It also hides the GTE Tsunami pipe from plain sight.

The GTE Configuration 5 is quite the opposite of the rest. It provides High torque at any range... the Addition of a Stinger megaphone pipe at the tail section, allows more scavenging effect which aids the Tsunami pipe in pulling more exhaust gas out. The sound of the stinger amplifies the sound of the Tsunami in a straight pipe extension... This is also ideal for racing applications, it is much louder without the tornado whistling sound... If you like the sound of rally cars... then this is for you.

The Tsunami pipes works best with the Cold Air Intake dual vorxins system.  When you are running this with the intake upgrade, then you're set up is aptly called GT Vortex FAST. (a.k.a. Full Aspiration System Technique).

A lot of racing enthusiasts ride with open pipes, thinking they have more power with just a straight open pipe. They don't know what their missing until they've tried these.

To know the best GTE Tsunami Pipe size suitable for your vehicle, feel free to ask OTG-Karis Headquarters by giving them a call or a visitation.

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
