Smile Cusco Downpipe + Kakimoto Regu92Z

I just got this from Gruppe-s. The Downpipe and the catback both have great build quality, typical JDM. Looks like it was all TIG welded.

Downpipe: Great looking, but not so good fitting. Good bellmouth design that has no problems fitting onto stock turbo wastgate. The pipe hits the subframe (at least in my wagon). I had to get this welded. Now, I'm hearing some rattle from somewhere at idle.

Catback: Great design, good fit. I think the fitment of the downpipe threw the fitment of the exhaust slightly. The hanger fore of the differential doesn't line up with the kakimoto hanger.

Both together have a VERY pleasing sound, great note. Power gains were significant over my other system, and the turbo whoosh sound is intoxicating. JDM angle w/ Kakimoto exhaust looks great. No significant resonance even in my wagon body style. Quiet, about 92db @ 3000 rpm, as advertised. Will let out a good growl if you're full throttle, but still great tone. You need to drive in a tunnel with this exhaust!!

Overall, I'd give the downpipe 3 stars/ 5, Kakimoto 4.5 stars/5. If you can get a good deal with gruppe-s, it's worth getting. Much better sound than anything I've heard so far.
