CLeeNx04CiVic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
That's a decent setup but I'd prefer a custom 2 1/4 mandrel bent piping with muffler with that megan header IMO....I guess its all about personal preference....

Robearracing is a GOOD shop to buy from but haven't heard anything about the other one....GL!!!

I have the megan header with the megan cat back exhaust and love it. I am curious to know if there is a big difference from the guys with the 2.25 inch piping rather than the 2.5 that the megan has or maybe its just louder?

Nah i want to get a low tone, i dont like the sound of loud mufflers. thats why i wanted to go with a rs-r exmag, cuz its one of the quietest ones on the market. or a tanabe.

Yeah I have heard that the coating on the RSR chips & then rusts. I do think it looks good though. If I was going to get a new exhaust I would probably be looking at the Greddy SP2. I think I have only seen 1 member with it, and it looks sick.
