Go GReddy!

The mags need to get on this and do a comparison.

i voted greddy as I think out of the 3 that one is the best. However, I rate the comptech higher than greddy. There is a sound file of the comptech and it does sound sweet, only I wish we could hear it when its in higher rpms as the sound file is only of it with baby revs and warming up.

I agree someone needs to start beating the Exhaust comparisons to death.

Sup All:

I gotta say that the one I went for was the 5Zigen Fireball Cat-Back Exhaust Kit. It gives great overall great sound quality and I should have my dyno results soon. I will post it... I could have had any of the companies to sponsor me, with the exception of GReddy (I guess GReddy is Greedy), but my overall pick was 5Zigen for its performance as my number one choice. Number two has to be the sound variation.

Just my .02

Smoookin'!

I've got the EVO on my TypeS. I dig it. Looks great. At idle the sound is a smooth, low murmur deeper than OEM, but not more loud. Casual driving there is a nice throaty tone. When you jump on it, it makes some real noise. The ass-dyno likes it as well.

yes the comptech is stainless steel and i believe borla's is all stainless steel too... Also if anyone else is interested Skunk2 just came out with their Mega Power stainless steel exhaust systems
for our car... 60 mm exhaust tubing which is roughly 2.4 inches...
For me id choose either the comptech or the Skunk2
