Exhaust: JIC Full Ti
Header/Y-Pipe?: Megan header/Toyomoto Y-pipe
Rating:9.5
-Loudness: 7-8
-Quality: 10
-Overall:9
Comments: Love this exhaust! Sold it but, the thing weighs about 6lbs only!(JIC exhaust) Was really quiet when I had just the axel back and sounded very close to the HKS Hyper/Carbon-Ti but, had the header/y-pipe and custom b-pipe installed and had a much greater effect in the noise levels. Has drones around 70-80mph.


This is a perfect example for those of who wants or is getting a exhaust system...gives you an idea of what you need that fits your needs! +rep to lilboi for making this thread! I am leaning towards a APEXi WS2, HKS Ti-Limited, or a Tanabe Hyper Medallion! Thanks guys for the input!

Comments: i have the headers and Y pipe wrapped so there is no raspyness there the exhaust is pretty quiet until you really get on it... on the highway there is almost no drone (you might hear a little) all in all a nice subtle exhaust

Exhaust: HKS hi-power
Header: Mazzuri
Catalytic converter: magnaflow spun cat
Rating:8
Loudness:7, was much louder when i had no cats and my stock resonator off of my b-pipe
Quality:7
Overall:8
Comments: definently like the set up a lot. ive looked around for different exhausts for awhile just for a change but i cant find anything that i like even close as much as the sound of this. sounds great. pretty loud but that doesnt bother me. theres drone at some rpms. but gives a nice deep sound and its not raspy

YouTube - Lexus IS300 mazzuri srt hks hi-power 1st-3rd

random video i took right when i got the headers. this is without my resonator and cat and the windows are down so its very loud. ill try and get a new video eventually from the outside. sounds much better now

thank you so much for posting this. I'm planning on putting an exhaust for my IS300. I'm leaning on either a HKS Hiper (Hi-Power) or Greddy Evo 2. I want it to sound not really but simlar to an STI I know i won't get excat but you know what you hear that exhaust you know it's a beast.

I don't want people to see a Lexus IS300 as a ricer car.

I want them to fear the car. My heads turn. Give respect to the car. You know a deep tone.

It would be nearly impossible to duplicate the sweet sound of that boxer engine. IMO, the HKS Dragger II or the Hiper (Hi-Power) are some of the deepest sounding.

I have the Dragger and I L-O-V-E how it sounds.

Comments:
I love this exhaust! Its got a nice deep sound yet quite at idle, if that makes sense. Even nice-ah sound at crusing speed and even nice-ah at WOT. Best of all No drone at all, installation super easy and perfect fit. clean look. Reminds me of the exhaust note of a G35.

No I did not grow up in a grass shack but I will eat your fish RAW!
