Default Stromung exhaust

OK, Im looking into getting my first exhaust for my 02rs. From the sounds of it, stromung is good. After searching through this section, I found out where to look. On boxer4racing, there are a couple of them there. Which is better, xa catback or the regular catback.
Thanks for the help

I have the scoobysport axleback with a custom midpipe and i am very pleased with the sound quality.


This guy is selling a stromung axleback. Personally i like the single tip better.

then you will just need to either purchase the stromung midpipe,
or ... Cheaper.... have a shop make you one.

although the single tip may look batter to you, the dual tip has been proven to make slightly more power. I've had the dual tip on my '99 RS since 2000 and i love it. with the borla header it sounds like a friggin harley.

uhh link/evidence? i emailed stromung and they said there was very little difference, but the dual tip was slightly more resrictive (and quieter)

(this is original single tip vs double tip)

Any good sites to get them from other than what I already stated? Also anyone have that xa. Would like to see one on a car though I'm leaning toward the original. Hopefully someone will sell theirs so I can get a little cheaper. I just missed out on one.

I have sound/video clips with Stromung if interested. Go to Motorsports, do a search for OBS short, and watch/listen. Stromung is the best I think. Brian
