Default Tanabe Super Medallion Racing cat-back

WHAT??!!!................WHAT???!!!!!!

SPEAK UP!!!........I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!!!!

Yeah, this is a nice deep loud exhaust that looks like a damn rocket launcher sticking out from under your car.
So I guess some will love it and some will hate it.
I have it on my daily driver with a DC 4-2-1 header and a 2.5" resonated test pipe. It will definitly keep your ears ringing after a long drive, but I've gotten used to it.
100% stainless steel.
Absolutely no problems and going on my 2nd year with it.
It's a little pricey, but if you want the real deal, this is it.
There are so many immitators of this exhaust, but once you own the Tanabe SMR, you see why there are so many followers.
Only problem is, they will never be on the same level as the original.

Well, I got it from a local shop (unfortunatly) and paid big bucks for it.
Since then, I've searched online and have found it for anywhere from 500 - 600 dollars.

loud = good... as long as it doesnt block out all the engine noise... and as long as it doenst sound like a sonic assault weapon/cofee can... but thats just my personal preference- i like exhausts that look closer to stock... but maybe thats just cause im a sleeper freak... once i save up the money ill be gettin an Apex'i World Sport2 system for my car... - more power... subtle, and not too loud...
but hey- loudness rules!... as long as you can still hear your BOV... lol

Well I'm definitly going for something much more subtle next time.
The exhaust has brought me a lot of unwanted attention from police and punk kids.
Anyone have any recommendations?
I may end up doing a custom made one with a completely straight pipe, with a resonator welded mid-way, but I'm not sure what muffler I would use.
Prefferably something stock looking, with a straight through design...

punk kids- such as myself... - as for my own exhaust... if i cant afford the Apex'i WS2- im gonna get one of those cheap as hell ricer ones- just as long as the piping is less restrictive than stock- and im gonna cut off the cofee can, and weld it to my stock muffler- but since the muffler is restrictive as all hell- im gonna cut it open and get rid of about half of the junk in there... weld it back together- and then weld the pipe on... not quite sure what it would sound like...- but one things for sure- it wouldnt attract much attention- people would just think you've got a hole in your muffler...

I like a nice loud exhaust for NA, but I'm going the FI route so I want something much more mellow so I can enjoy the sounds of the turbo

I don't think the turbo's gonna be happy with that stock diameter exhaust and the bends and whatnot of a stock muffler....

someone correct me if i am mistaken but I believe the baffling inside is serviceable by drilling out the rivets on the sides of the muffler, removing the tip end and replace the old baffling with new stuff available from Tanabe. then just re-rovet the tip back on and you're good to go

One thing I have always believed, and I think should apply here too for the most part, is this: If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. Why put forth that effort to tell someone some negative stuff that you know they won't like to hear. Build your car how you want, and let others do the same.
