I am currently looking to buy a cat-back system. I like both exhaust systems, just struggling with which one to get. I see a lot of people have the ARK system, but do not see a lot of people with 7ism. Any owners of the 7ism can share thoughts of it thus far? Even a few ARK responses would be great.

Thanks!

Yeah I did some searching afterward and see a lot of stuff on both sets. Seems the ARK system gets a lot of favor here plus they are fairly involved here (which is just nice to see.)

Getting a free down pipe and test pipe does make them seem even nicer :p

I've seen both in person and I've been much more impressed with Ark's quality. Not to say the 7ism is poor quality.

Also, with Ark being very active on the forums and having a great record of customer service that is very visible with a search, that fact alone is turning me towards them (or custom :p )

Out of all Ark's products, I have to agree with zs lsx that their exhaust is very well welded and built. Even though there were some arguments on it, to me these exhaust gains are pretty much the same and I could careless for the 2+/- differences... so realistically, it's not even that noticeable. The downside on having Ark's exhaust is that it hangs so low that if you have 1 tiny finger gap or less, expect to scrape your exhaust, from the midpipe to the mufflers. As money-wise... I won't say much, if you have money and you like it then go for it.

BTW ZS LSX, were you there for the big meet in NJ?

In the end, they both look the same, and sound the same. So it really comes down to price. I'm sure someone is going to come on here and nit-pick me to death that "oh well 7ism is so many milimeters different than ARK, blah blah. ARK is different colors yadda yadda." IMHO Get the ARK, 'cause hey, free downpipe!

I say about 6s (6 of one & 1/2 dozen of the other)...they are close in looks, craftmanship, performance & cost. But I prefer ARK myself by a slight edge & as was mentioned above, they are running a special right now on them.

:dunno:
Have you seen these two exhausts?
Unless you are blindfolded, they look completely different.
Have you heard these two exhausts?
Unless you have earplugs in, they sound totally different.

At least you got the " Get the ARK, 'cause hey, free downpipe!" part right.
:hello:

I agree, I had the ARK with down & test pipe and love it! The only concern is regarding their downpipe, it had a rattle on it and from now they continu to try to find the problem! Instead that little problem, for sure I will choose again that kit!

I've heard the Ark exhaust in person, and the 7ism on the videos, and the 7ism sounds way more exotic to me. I know way more peeps with the Ark as opposed to the 7ism as well. I'm more leaning towards the 7ism simply because it sounds way better on the videos than the Ark.

I agree that the 7ism does sound more exotic from the vids comparted to the ARK.
