Question What's a good Cat-Back?

Well, i'm not so stuck on buying a full TBE anymore, i'm considering buying some sort of DP, and then a good CBE. What's a good CBE? I like the HKS Hi-Power, But the Tanabe Concept G Blue is also sold in a CBE form. Would the 5mm difference between the HKS and the Tanabe make a big difference performance wise? Thanks

Ive got the Invidia N1 TBE but im sure the CBE would be close. Its sounds mean as hell especially when you get on it.

That size difference wont matter at all. After reading your other posts and seeing your HP goals, just go for the look and sound you want. Thats basically what the CBE is for anyways.

It all depends on what your budget's like too. If you've got the money to spare you can get the more well-known expensive brand, but if you're like a lot of people and you're on a budget I highly recommend checking out ebay. I just purchased a 3" generic cat-back that fits great and sounds pretty burly.

well, if i get a job now, i could start saving up money to buy my mods. Because i remind you that i am only 17 years old, turnin 18 in April. I know some of you guys will think of me as a cocky lil kid, but, yeah, my budget isn't too much. But then again i don't have anything i have to pay off. (until i buy my WRX that is). But my parentz are guna pitch in for it, hopefully most. I'm hoping for at least $8-$10k they guna pay...

But i think i'll still go with the Tanabe, i'll see later...

Check out the Borla XR-1. Best sounding CBE IMO. Reallllly brings out the rumble.

Well, i think i'm going to go with the HKS Hi-Power. Because i'm going to get the Invidia UP and DP, because the invidia DP is a bellmouth, then i'll just go with teh HKS CBE, because i like the look of it.

I dnt really care for the Carbon Ti though. It costs too much in my opinion. But w.e Just the regular Hi-Power will work fine.
