Default just got my tomei!

TOMEI Expreme Ti Exhaust but my friend now bashing me saying it wasn't worth the money, but i honestly dont care because im a huge fan of TOMEI products and believe there items are one of the best in the market.

Can anyone give me some feedbacks with this exhaust compared to the N1 invida catback exhaust?

Who cares what they say? If you like how it looks and like how it sounds, great. A catback is one of the least important parts of a build as far as power goes. The difference between each catback is marginal at best.

Here's a review from the car-part forum:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2623193

Here's another one from General:

And another from Car Parts forum:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2622346


Why are you asking for feedback AFTER you bought it?? And if you honestly don't care, again, why the need for feedback? put it on, compare it yourself.

Who cares what you're friend's think, they are only jealous as something that's jealous, just like me

But seriously who the hell care's what they think, If you like it, love it! Just be happy with it. Through my eye's the tomei is light years better than the n1 invidia, just because they are light has something really light! like the others stated, gain's are minimal compared to other catbacks. Again like I've said to you're other thread's, It is just a pipe, They both perform the same task, Nothing different.

enjoy it for now dude... had mine on my car for 4 months I am sick of it, so damn loud. More obnoxious then it should be while just cursing on the highway in the cabin, after 4 months I can't stand it. Been pulled over 3 times for it.

Don't get me wrong its a great exhaust brings out the rumble of the car looks gorgeous and very light of course, but as a daily I now hate how loud it is. I am actually selling mine 13 STi installing my Cobb Cat Back Friday.

Just installed mine Thursday night! Love the sound and the look! It has the perfect sound for what I wanted. I'm still on stock DP, so it may not be as loud as others with aftermarket DPs. I was really unsure of it after hearing everybody talk about how loud it is. I was pleasantly surprised when I went to work Friday morning. My commute is 25mi + highway/interstate at 60mph +. It didn't bother me at all. Even my wife didn't complain when we went out Friday night, and she sure would've let me know.

The title of the thread is "just got my tomei". So what you really meant was "Just ordered my Tomei" ?

You are also ignoring the fact, that they are a weight reduction piece as well.

Not always, a Perrin catback weighs a boatload but something like a single exit Tomei would save weight

Is your friend a car person? My friends think I'm dumb for spending $$ on my exhaust, but to each their own.

I personally think travel is a waste of money but thats just my opinion.
