[e//S2] Stromung GP?

Jimmy, et al,
If I may offer my 2 cents here...
For whatever reason, some of us late adopters of the
Stromung UrS4 system have had some issues with regards
to fitment, NVH, exhaust hangers breaking, downpipes
cracking, midpipes cracking, etc.

Speaking from personal experience with the 3rd GP
stromung, I have experienced a broken hanger, a
cracked midpipe (split in half and various fitment
issues, including ground clearance.)  I also know of
at least three Stromung downpipes (2 GP3+ and 1 GP1)
that have required re-welding due to the wastegate
entry turbulence, the latest one separating itself
after only 2 track events and 4 months of street use.

Now, Jeff is a great guy, easy to deal with, etc, but
I would have to advise those of you seeking track duty
for your S2's to perhaps pursue fitment of a custom
exhaust built to your specifications.
