EDIT: Just saw that your video said SRT on it and that intake is a lot louder than my injen, plus i have the stock resonator. ill try to get a video like yours from 1-3 gear and see if it differs much.

I personally do not have the Dragger II but my buddy does. I've rode in the car and have heard a few revs from outside the car.

It's also paired with the SRT intake which is somewhat hard to hear when the Dragger II is in action. Its a great exhaust IMO. You will hear many members say that It's quiet when crusing with no drone, but when you want it to be loud. It will perform that for you. WOT with this exhaust is amazing. So smooth sounding with no raspyness whom some might consider 'ricey'.

I'd rate it a 7.5 out of 10. That's because I've not heard any other IS300 exhaust in person. I will tell you now you will not be unsatisified with this exhaust.

If your looking for a deep G35 sound in a way. This is the choice for you! Don't worry, It's not an impersonation of a G or Z if you are afraid of people giving you bad credit. It's got a sound of it's own with JDM relations!

Another thing about this exhaust is it can be very different with headers or no headers. Specifically Mazzuri. I consider the Dragger to be a quiet respective exhaust for our cars. But paired with Mazzuri, yes indeed it sounds nice but its extremely loud! The Hi-Power (Hiper) as well is one of the loudest when paired with Mazzuri.

Just my $0.02.

Hiper, besides the angled design, they sound the same. Shitty video, cheapo camera, I know:

I've heard that to be true in some cases. Others Say the Hiper is slightly more raspy. In a good way though. It's HKS. You honestly can not go wront with either.

Also just to pitch it in. The Carbon TI offerd by HKS aswell is considerd to be a more agressive Hiper. Aswell as wrapped in CF with a blue torched tip.

Hope Gregski and I have provided you with what you need to purchase your exhaust.

sorry dude but any exhaust you install with a clamp is a pos. U put that sort of thing on your civic. I'm sure it would still sound good just cause of the straight 6

Just asking, and I think the clamp is for the hanger as this muffler would need to be welded on.

At the moment I can't decide on either the HKS Hiper, HKD drag 2, or the Apexi N1.
