the kakimoto sounds awesome, personally
I had a Fujistubo 3" muffler on the stagea, then swapped it for a 3" Kakimoto muffler
much higher flowing, more aggressive "RB" burble
very happy

and there is nothing wrong with a Mild steel system in lieu of stainless steel

Why not get a Trust PE2? - Has a nice deep note and doesn't drone at all.

With the cat choice you can get one for $199 that flows at 570cfm, the next one up is $380 and flows at 700CFM.
Would i see much differance in going for the more expensive one? Or keep the $181 and put it towards some cam gears?

Kaki is 98 DB.. Its not quite and scapes under the limit.. I have the 3.5 cannon N1 series which is the best and all I get is comments on how it sounds at WOT.. at idle the cops dont even look, just a quite hum/drone.

Get a split dump if you going stock turbo, makes the exhaust sound sweet.

Get a catco highflow, expensive but so worth it .. ceramic just slows it all down.

As a mata of fact look at my sig, just buy it all

HKS cause chicks sex guys that have HKS stuff

lol so that's why...
;)

on a serious note; I have a HKS hi power silent,
I found it wasn't any louder than my stock exhaust(came with optional factory sport muffler from japan)
but it had a deeper, meatier tone on idle and at high revs really growls rather than sound like a wet fart
sometimes I turn the radio off just to listen to it when I drive.

I'm saving up to eventually get a titanium exhaust for the Z :(

I got a HKS silent hi power catback installed yest.

I also have a hks front pipe on my gtr.

The exhaust its quiet. I dont know why people say its loud on here.. I can barely hear it lol.

And the canon on the back is a better size compared to the kaki.

It might b louder if i get a proper high flow cat tho.. i still got a stock or compliance one on there.. ill see soon i guess.

the titanium tip is quite attractive but i honestly have to go with the hks.

simple fact i rkn its the hottest lookn exhaust there is.

its only a neway so its gonna sound like a fag newai. if u want it loud get a turbo back and gut the cat.

then the thing will sound like a monster.

honestly though i think the Blitz Nur Spec exhaust sound the best.

the other exhausts seem to have a throaty pitch.....where as the blitz just has a massive low down deep note that just screams to redline.

then again im running straight pipe so yeh......ur lookn at 115db+ on my car.


and just to show u wat i meant by other exhaust being throaty. take a look at this.


you have a mild tune s15 running a hks 409



then u have the same car running a blitz nur spec



notice how the nur spec is 10x deeper in note.....

no offence to the Trust owners out there but i think its a girls exhaust......

http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

it is intended to be a silent exhaust like the hks 409 silent.......so i cant say to much

+1 HKS Silent Hi Power.

Got one on the R34, it is quiet but the note is super sexy and as stated before when you open it up, it growls like a mother f**ker. Loud under load, quiet at idle... perfect imo. I am running HKS front/dump as well for the record.

There was obviously a noticeable restriction reduction from my old Nismo system. It also looks great and is HKS so chicks clothes just fall off when they approach your car. As far as the cost, I can't remember exactly, it wasn't cheap but was reasonable.

Heres the vid, sounds better in person.

Has Xforce 3" dump/front pipe, 3" decat pipe and HKS Silent High Power catback in this video, now has a hks split dump pipe (came with my 3037 turbo kit) and a hks front pipe which makes it sound alot different, sounds way better now!
