    i was always a fan of the apex WS, but I believe it's Discontinued.


    Tanabe is very nice, along with any HKS unit.

    that is a little on the high side.... but.... i think shipping from the US will end up costing just as much or more

    I have a close friend who put a tanabe racing medalion exhaust on his Twin Turbo Supra - it sounded like a civic after the install, all high pitched and raspy - total crap IMO unless used with a honda.

    They do look good (the hyper medalion) - i kant say nuting about that.

    another option is to get a rear muffler for my car(like apexi hks tanabe) and get the rest of the pipping built would that be a good option?? and if i do that would it be right to get 2.5" pipping. OR

    should i not try to mess about and just get built one already


    i didnt think exhausts made much difference on cars until my friend got one on his i was able to keep up with him in every gear before he got his exhaust but now he starts drifting away from 2nd gear and makes about 4 car lengths on me :( and also to top it up it throws out a flame after gear change lol.
    (cant wait till my itr swap goes in so i can fry em haha)
