if you dont like too quiet and also too loud that gets on your nerve and annnoying lol well this is for you. its deep and smooth sound very nice music to my ear



i just got mine installed today and i love it! watched all the videos and it cant compare to all of them! its wayy better! i recommend when going to meets and stuff thats the right way to pick a sound of your choice because you cant really tell on videos its just wayy diffrent..

What is the horse power add with the Tanabe Touring Medalion? I'm digging the subtle deep tone and am looking to do my exhaust. Any suggestions for a Y Pipe to go with this and what are the HP gains on that too? Thanks.

First one on the HKS TI-limited

Exhaust: HKS TI- Limited Exhaust (axle back only)
Rating: 9
Loudness: 2
Quality: 9

This exhaust is awesome if you looking for a quiet stock like ride and at WOT you can tell you have a non stock exhaust ..Looks great and sounds great (little deeper then stock)
Soon I will be adding a Megan header and Y-pipe .
Ill add videos soon .... with just axle back and header - y pipe - and axle back.

I've heard many different types of exhausts, ranging from Apexi N1/WS2 to HKS Hi-powers, to even magnaflows. These Tanabe's are rated to be fairly quiet, but have a great tone to them. Definitely quiet at crusing speeds, but anything above 3000rpm or so, you can definitely hear it kick it, great tone and not much droning at all. It may drone ever so slightly if you stay at 2100rpm or so, but on an auto tranny, crusing rpms are a bit lower then that. Great oval tip design too.

Bump. Just uploaded a video I took this morning. Don't have one yet from outside the car or with the windows open... this is cabin noise.

I have the full OBX setup, header, ypipe, catback... everything from the motor back is OBX. It's loud a sin, but it also has an awesome sound when cruising. No cats, 2 resonators, small little muffler.

Signature goes here.
