Beefy piping, minimal bends, and it's mandrel bent. Plus it's name brand, all that equals $$$

actually it isn't. stfu before you post.


any good exhaust will be between $500-$700 considering its all stainless steel and a name brand.


personally if i had to do it all over again, i'd get the yashio because its cheap, name brand, stainless steel and 3" piping. and it looks great. you can't go wrong.

I would also go Yashio Factory, iv had good experience with their systems. Full Titanium is a pretty penny for just a pipe, unless you really want to spend that much..you really wont see any more gains than the next 3rd party exhaust system. You can also consider doing a custom job, which is usually the best bang for your buck.

If your looking for quality exhaust systems expect to see numbers around 500-900 USD.

I've been soul searching for the past month and I cant decide between the URAS RS (350) or the Yashio Factory (450) ones cheaper and one gives me and excuse to paint things Nuclear pink... decisions decisions

Re: whats good about this exhaust..

Titanium=stonger and lighter. For people who have nothing better to do with thier money. Remember, its just an exhaust.

Yeah you can get a pretty nice custom cat back setup at a shop, installed for $250-$300. Personaly I'd rather do that and take the rest of my money and invest it some where else in the car.

Now your just talking about 2 different engines that different ways, and produce different amounts of power. You cant compair an exhaust made for the S2k over an exhaust made for a S-chassis. It wouldnt be the same.
