[edit] oops, actually it was the RACING medallion...it sounds like my old VW without all the associated aircooled clattering.

I have the Hyper Medallion on my car. I love the way it sounds and looks. It hangs low but It isn't bad. I have a 2" drop on my car and have never rubbed it. It isn't loud at all, mellow yet throaty.

I have one and it was a prototype that was swapped with a racing meddallion midpipe so it makes a deeper hollower sound. It lookse great and the build quailty is definetly good. I am looking at selling mine if your interested (just need to find a mid pipe back stock muffler) PM me.

I just got the Tanabe racing medalions. It definitely sounds awesome. I couldn't tell if I lost any low end torque but it definitely
gave me some extra horsepower. I don't have an intake yet, but with the racing medalion, it definitely feels faster after 3500 rpm.

I'll be getting a replica installed on saturday, crossing my fingers that it sounds close. I heard it sounded VERY nice on an MX-6. Just getting the muffler, but installed it is only costing me the equivalent of 250US

hey, i found out some info on power gains...i looked around on freshalloy, and guys that are running racing medallions on their S13's and 14's are getting about a 15hp (!) gain...since the ka24de is pretty similar in displacement and power, i'd venture to guess you'd see a comparable gain. hope this helps.
