The Blitz Nur-Spec R is really loud. Looks nice too IMO. I've never been a fan of the carbon look. It just doesn't make sense to have a carbon fiber muffler to me.

The HKS is quite loud... especially without the silencer... But my Tanabe is louder... we're talking Harley territory here.

Perrin is very loud too

I have a question though? What exhaust will really give off that boxer rumble. I liked the Helix, but I heard it on AWD>RWD car and it didnt sound like the Soobydude vid, not as loud, so whats another option.

Dan, this is the tech section of the site, not the hangout. Please type accordingly. That punctuation and grammar is simply not going to get it here.

Everyone else, let us handle it.

Thanks.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Loudest would have to be the Helix in my opinion

and i believe the APS Full Race,

Though i dont know if the APS Full Race is availible in Just cat back anymore.

Helix takes the cake for me....We install exhausts on subies everyday, and theirs sticks out in my mind as ONE of the loudest.


Buddah what model HKS was that your friend had?

because we have found the Tanabe Hyper Medalion to be Much Quieter than MOST.
