SCC rated the Stromung the best one for performance. IMO the only one that sounds as good or better is the Scooby Sport.

personally I have magnaflow, but my favorite would be stromung(basshead's). I've also heard apexi N1(momo's), and scoobysport(Jamie's), Borla header with borla cat back(phantom's) in person, and these are my opinions:
stromung has that nice rumble deep reflective sound, booorrrmmm. and Borla header and catback, and scoobysport sounds like a WRX with exhaust, or like the sound you hear on speed channel's WRC cars. and N1 sounds japanese, with less rumble more deep bass tone to it. well not Honda like, but it's more like broom emmmmmmmm...emmm. and mine, it's sorta like scooby sport, but with much less rumble, and emptier sound, because of the resonator in my midpipe. hope this would help your decision!

I dont know about the Apexi...my friend with an integ has one and that is LOUUUUD. I would think the Stromung would be the best, that's what I plan on getting. From what I hear it gives very good gains and has a deep (not all that LOUD) sound. Looks almost identical to the stock on a WRX....but on your RS...nice =)

I just put a WRX muffler on my RS. 125 install + 80 for the muffler/axleback. I got a 2.25" catback pipe installed w/ it.

It sounds really good. Very bassy. No droning, and its not *that* loud. Its definitely louder than stock though. Car sounds burbly and meaner now.

Also it does this thing.. I'm not sure why.. but at lower rpm (1.5-2k) it flutters when revs drop.. it sounds exactly like a wastegate or something..

Performance is good and its not annoying loud. I had a reallllly loud exhaust on my last car so i went the quiet route this time.

I like the custom jobs. I really like the Magnaflow mufflers. In fact I just sold my 2 1/4" cat-back (as I have WRX engine and will be getting a 3" catback unit made. Plus a custom job cost about 1/2 that of one you buy pre-made.

just my .02
