Thumbs up Quietest Exhaust?

Hey Guys,
I am by no means a newbie eventhough my status is one, I've been around for quite some time. I am looking for an exhaust at this point in my car's life. I was going to get the dual-tipped stromung but now I'm not quite sure 'cause I know it will be intrusive on freeway driving (I drive the i-5 in california from San Francisco to LA area several times a year). The "perfect" exhaust I am looking for will give me a little (which is what most will give) more power but not be too audible unless I give it about half throttle or so. I am up for any suggestions and reccomendations. Thanks!

SoCalScooby - One of the quietest aftermarket cat-backs available (and probably what you're looking for) would be the Brullen set-up with Quiet acoustic preference. If you have an intake, it will actually be louder than the exhaust. It's available in dual 3" tips as well as single 4". Made with 16gauge full T304SS, and has lifetime warranty.

thanks for that reply GTBGUY, I got on Brullen's web site and e-mail them for information about it. Do you personally know about these exhausts or are you going from what other's have said. thanks-

I have the 2.25" STi pipe and Im real happy with it. The combo of my Ganzflo and cat back makes a nice sound around town when you get on it, and when you want it to be quiet just hit a lower gear. On the highway I have to turn the music down and pay attention to it to be able to hear it. Hope this helps.

I have the full header-back MRT setup. It is very unobtrusive, not really noticeable at all while cruising. Under engine braking it wakes up a bit, but still is not annoying in the slightest. And, as an added bonus, it dyno'd at +14hp at the peak and about +16hp at redline on my car. http://i-club.com/forums/showthread....light=mrt+dyno

Hi Pat.

Hmm, I'd say the STi is probably the best bet (and fitment), but it'll be expensive. The dual-tip Brullen I think is quieter than the single-tip, and is designed as such (again, I think). Check with Longshot from NESIC, he's got one. Very nice exhaust, one of my favorites and top choices for when I get one.

Haven't heard many good things about Stromung... MRT makes great stuff, so I wouldn't doubt what Pat said about his...

Hmm, that just about exhausts what I know about... err... exhausts.
