Default Invidia or Turboxs rfl ti turbo back exhaust

I have been saving for the longest time and doing research on which tbe to get. I finally have the money and I am ready to purchase but I am stuck between two choices. What would you suggest a turboback invidia which is a little cheaper or a turbo xs rfl ti turboback. I currently have a hks upipe, and my asscessport is in the mail if that makes any difference. Thanks, any input will be a big help.

Both exhaust will probably yield the same amount of HP. I like the TXS d/p and the option to utilize their high flow cat or race pipe. I like the finnish and sound of the Invidia plus the fact that the tip sticks out a little past the bumper so you don't get black exhaust marks on your bumper.
I currently have the Invidia G200 TBE and I love the sound plus it's not too loud compared to the RFL ti. Basically dude it is all a matter of opinion and looks.-Ben

I got the TXS with highflow cat. Sounds great with standard muffler, Fitment is perfect, no rattling or other issues...Downpipe is HUGE and makes a cool turbowhistle. The RFL muffler is louder, I heard it on an STI and it is MEAN!

I have no input on the invidia, which I have never heard.
Good Luck

I prefer Invidia's sound. You just gotta search for clips, and if at all possible, find a local owner who will let you hear theirs.

RFL Ti = obnoxiously loud

Well, Invidia N1 uses a smaller Muffler, so u might have better ground clearance. It's cheaper too. Also, with the TXS, u have the option of running a Cat or a Race pipe by just switching them out, which is nice. They're both loud exhausts, haven't compared them side by side though. Even though the RFL is wicked loud, it doesn't drone on the highway. I dunno if the Invidia Drones on the highway.

Either way, they're both nice quality exhausts. But if Droning is a big deal for u, the RFL is guaranteed not to.

I think the RFL has a raspy sound to it and the Invidia N1 style has a deep manly turbo whistle sound to it. I really like the Invidia becuase the quality is just the same if not better than the RFL and it cost less. The Invidia has a much deeper tone than the RFL. Possibly the deepest i've heard on a rex, makes you want to do this: but that's just my opinion... I've also noticed that the RFL gurgles and pops a lot while the Invidia has a sweet silky turbo manly sound. hahaha anyways... you get the idea. Hope this helps. -Gene

I was leaning towards the turbo xs but after reading some of these post it makes me wonder. One of the reply brings up a good question on whether or not their is a drone with the invidia.

I have the Invidia on mine.... it is great!! It has a nice deep tone that isnt rude or uninviting. I take a lot of highway trips, and it sounds good in 5th gear. After hearing a clip of itl, I knew that it was the one I wanted. Check this page out:
