New Tanabe Racing Medalion

installed the 80MM Tanabe Racing Medalion and it is pretty sweet. Nice tone. Little bit louder than stock but not TOO much. HUGE high-end Difference though.

Yeah..I am actually supposed to be gettin the first RE DESIGNED Downpipe when they finish it. Our Shop works Very Closely with Tanabe everyday and they found a way to tweak some more horses out of a NEW design. so we shall see.

Methinks that "HUGE" high end-difference is butt dynoage.

I'd have to see a dyno sheet to believe a "huge" improvement. I have yet to see a cat-back that gained more than 5 hp.

It is noticable in power and tone in high end i meant. It stays with a nice deep tone. lol i am not going to dyno after a cat back so i will reitterate and say a Noticable Difference and good tone. I will dyno after the addition of the Down Pipe and ill post it.

Well, obviously you will see a big gain on the dyno after changing the downpipe. It's not uncommon to see an increase of 20 hp with a new downpipe alone.
