    Default EP3 stainless OEM style 2.5" exhaust found - opinions?

    Chaps I've wanted a bit more grunt from the car but without too much noise or a massive Jap can poking out of the posterior. I've found the following and wanted your opinions. The design of the backbox would lead me to believe nasty rasp and other higher pitched frequencies should be dampened. The 1 review on the backbox confirms this. What are your thoughts?

    and the b-pipe

    The weld look quite good in the photos. There are some close ups in the listings. Other than a custom exhaust I've not seen any OEM style stainless 2.5" exhausts

    OEM-style stainless is basically Fujitsubo Legalis R (with the benefit of being JASMA cerified, so nice and quiet, but with a great overall tone). The down-side is price.

    It does stick out a bit more because it's made for the JDM manifold/cat which is a bit shorter, but I didn't mind that so much. The build-quality is top notch.

    There are probably others similar to that, I just figured I'd mention that it's not just custom-builds that are OEM-alike.

    Apologies for the late reply Mike. I have seen the Fujitsubo Legalis R and really like them but yes the price is very steep - I have no doubt the quality is top notch but gone are the days where I could justift £700+ for a catback. I'll have a look at some others too.

    Piper do one with an OEM looking tailpipe. Maybe more in your price range.
