What is the best exhaust?

As soon as I get my tax returns back I'm going to get an exhaust. I want to make sure I get the best one possible. Which should I get out of the Tanable Race Medalion or the Greddy Evo? or if there is one that is better than those 2 let me know?

Do they both have deep sounds? I don't want one that sounds high pitched like a crotch rocket!

Tanabe RM is where it's at for me. The sound is a little more ricey, but the power it produces more than makes up for it.

How bad is the sound from the Tanable RM?? Does it have a deep sound at all? Does it really have a lot more power than greddy evo? It's got a big pipe how is the sound not deep?

Tanabe isn't annoying loud if thas wha u guys are afraid of. The Evo is pretty deep my friend has one and I would have to say find the clip of the thermal Cat Back sound Media Playerc (I think if u jus 'search' for one u can find one). Because the Thermal R&D is like in between the Evo and Tanabe. Evo is a lil deeper than the thermal and Tanabe is a lil higher. I hope this helps.

so the Tanable RM has a nice sound and more power than the Greddy Evo? How does the thermal rate power wise compared to the other 2?

Do you all realize that the exhaust itself, ESP due to the cat on our cars is a very minimal aspect of performance... the dc DAC, header AND exhaust produced 5 hp on DC's dyno...... so you guys take it from there, to be COMPLETELY honest, think that 300 dollars will buy u maybe 2-3 extra ponies from a 300 exhaust to a tanabe or such... think of it realistically and stop being one of those tards that wants to drive by the block 8 times and rev... bottom line most other cars out there will beat up on us rather easily...

firesVTEC - there are some excellent audio & video clips of the MAGNAFLOW on here. Check them out and get in on the group buy that's going on now.

i would get the tanabe racing medalion too many people have greddy's
lot of people got the fake racing medalion but aleast u will have the real stuff
i think greddy has a deeper tone then tanabe though but that dont mean tanabe sound nasty or anything
but by looks tanabe looks better

Where did you get your info? I just got me magnaflow through the group buy and installed it. It is awful quiet, part of the reason I bought it, well, and the price. I had no idea there were dyno numbers on it. Please, point in the right direction.
