Put on the Greddy SP Elite. It is pretty quiet, even at WOT. The muffler tucks up nicely, it doesn't hang down and reduce clearance. The stamped flanges could be a bit better. After looking around it was the best all around exhaust I could find, as far as being quiet, doesn't reduce clearance, and no drone.

I have to disagree, there are plenty of better looking exhausts out there.
Here are just a few.

That's your opinion.^ Beside the muffler, they both look the same!

I like the Dual Walled exhaust tips!

I just got Apexi first n1 evo catback for 11+ sedan, it's pretty loud but I like it. If you want something quite u should try mxp. I have one for sale with a link of the way it sounds.

The q300 is great with a 3" catted dp and stock header . But as soon as you put a Tomei elh on it gets really loud and rediculously raspy ! I know I have a ticket for it ! Lol it's not noisy till you do what I did !

Almost got the ark but it hangs down way to low. I had a CNT exhaust on my spec b and the fitment was crap.

I didn't say it was installed wrong, or that it didn't fit good. It just hangs down too low and I didn't like that. I talked with a guy who had both.

I also agree about the Ark. It's okay at stock ride height, but if you're lowered, you could have problems with the midpipe angled down too low. I never had problems with it, but when I traded it away, xluben did.

Nice, it will get a little lower when it breaks in which I think is a good thing, I still love mine and Imo it sounds even better with a dp, not too loud. Where did you pick up your jdm brake light? Decent price?

I got the JDM rear light from Rally Sport Direct. I believe the kit is about 200.00. But you can also just get the housing for 110.00.

I've had a bunch of exhausts and the best one I've used is the GReddy SP Elite. The ARK is really nice, but the midpipe resonator is a bit low. I'm also not a fan of the fake blue tips on the ARK or the CNT. IMO, the flared, double wall tips on the GReddy are the only way to go. They look so much classier!

Despite all those good things, I'm actually selling the GReddy right now. I will be going back to the stock exhaust for a while because I need $$$. If anyone is interested, here is the listing:

EDIT: It looks amazing!

Can I ask why you've gone through multiple exhausts?

Yeah, pretty much. Just trying new things. Kept my eye out for deals/trades and didn't spend a fortune on it. Mostly just time swapping them.

The EVO 3 is a nice exhaust on the sedans. What a delay though.

I was anticipating the driver side Ypipe flange to be moved to the passenger pipe as to center flange under the body , and also hoped the production version was going to go Double Wall with the tips.

Exactly what i did. I've got a stock catback on now. What did you end up getting to replace the Q300? Or do you still have it? I was going to get the ARK grip or DTS but i've seen those crappy holes that were made for the resonators, and for the price you pay, they should have been better cut.

Thinking of waiting for the maddad to finally come out. Dont really want to spend the amount they want for a milltek catback.

Yup! It a quality exhaust, but comes up short of its full potential without the dual walled tips!
