Default Usdm genome or Prodrive round tip?

I have a Prodrive Round tip and Usdm Genome. I'm wondering what everyone thinks i should do. I have the Genome on the car right now and I love it, but the Prodrive also will sound sexy. I'm looking for stock idle w/ a nice tone at wot. The problem with choosing is that they both do exactly what I'm looking for, but the tones are so different .

I swap mine out depending on what I want to do with the car. 3.5 for max power, 2.5 Prodrive for most daily driving conditions.
It doesnt sound like a $ issue so why sell them? One day you may need one or the other.

I would get the prodrive Im sure it flows more. Ive had the genome muffler and it has very small internal diameter gonna back up your exhuast flow a bit IMO.

Wow everyone loves prodrive. I'll have to bolt that thing up and drive around for a while and see how I like it. IMO these are the two best "silent" type exhausts.

i still think you should get the prodrive just because it flows better. the inner diameter of the genome exhuast is like corking up your turboback almost as bad as the stock muffler.

Yep, Prodrive is a keeper, like I said above dont sell it, probably the best over stock AM exhaust for daily driven car.

Keep em both.... I run the JDM Genome during the months where there isn't a TON of salt on the road...and a legit (not the japanese crap one) Scoobysport SINGLE TIP when there is salt on the road...

Two best sounding exhausts imo

Have it on there and its really quiet with zero drone....actually its so quiet I feel as if there is no exhaust at all. Looks stock and is quality built. I think I prefer the Genome, but having two exhausts is tempting. One for the hotter seasons and another for the cooler. I don't know if this weird, but I like the prodrive a little more because I have a matching Prodrive diff guard...haha.

Been running the Genome on and off for just over 2 years... haven't been pulled over once for it.. Actually had a cop compliment how my car sounded at a 7/11 once.

I hate the Genome tips, I think they're ugly as hell. Very tacky. The JDM ones at least, perform very well, but are still sinfully ugly.

So I say Prodrive. Or, consider other options, like Hayward & Scott or Fujitsubo.

People who I ask say to keep one and sell them the other. I put on that prodrive and it sounds great. I just need to see how it sounds from the outside. Then I need someone else with a genome to do a comparison side by side. Its so hard I might have to keep both. Maybe if I had more money I'd buy an sti and put the genome on there
