I drove a white rsx type-s with a greddy sp2 and couldnt even hear it over the intake. I'd go with either the SP2 or WS2, whatever has the bigger piping.

You know what I would do if I wanted something around as quiet as those, I would get the megan 2.5" midpipe and run the stock or hfp axleback. If not, I would go just a tad louder and get the greddy evo2 or comptech.

i have the tanabe and its quiet as hell. i love it. i think someone said that its more restrictive as stock but im not sure. i dont think the exhaust right now in our stage of the game makes that much difference. look at freq's dyno. i prefered to keep it really quiet since i got the race header which made my old exhaust really loud. just understand that if you get the race header and you dont want a loud ass exhaust you will probably want stock or tanabe imo.

The Tanabe MT is a really nice unit, quite but a little throatier than stock. It is refined and all stainless steel.

It seems that you are looking for a quieter exhaust and Tanabe or Apexi WS II would take care of that for you. Tanabe is a little nicer IMO.

PM me if you need any of those.

Greddy Evo2 is good. Its pretty quiet until you stomp on the gas
Evo2 "was" my first choice, but then a buddy of mines got his and it was a tiny bit louder than i expected, don't get me wrong i love the way it sounds, i already had a ls/vtec with my loud as catback in the past, so i want to go a different route this time with a more stock looking and sounding catback with more performance than noise :lildevil: ....

just change ur pipe take out the resonator use ur stock muffler it's not that loud
I had the same idea, but i was wondering if their was allot of restriction in the stock muffler.

I don't mind if its louder but im not looking for a fart cannon that you hear from a mile away "cuz i have been their and it gets very annoying after a while"

Im also getting DCRH so thats why i want to get either the SP2, WS, or Tanabe Medalion, because once that goes it its getting louder regardless.

im just going to go listen to some sound clips........

yah i didn't think so....
Bro, if you're willing to spend the money on the tanabe, why don't you just go a little more and get the comptech. Probably your best bet imo for what you're talking about wanting. I'm switching from the skunk2 70mm to comptech due to the rh I have.
