Manzo vs. Spec D Catback Exhaust System for '04 is300 Sportcross
I am debating between the Manzo Catback Exhaust System and the Spec D Tuning Catback Exhaust System. I live in Massachusetts so salt corrosion is a factor. I would like it to sound stock, fit well, and not corrode quickly. Any help is appreciated.

Question on the 2004 Sport Design Exhaust
Thanks for starting this one up.
Curious to know, (I can only speak on the year and model I own) for the 2004 IS300 Sport Design - it was noted that there was a "Sport Design" exhaust.
I know from other friends that own a stock mid-2000s IS (Non-Sport Design), that the exhaust on my car is in-fact different.
On the surface, it almost looks exactly like the RMM Exhaust I've seen Online- however (Other than eyeballing it) I simply have no idea of really telling.
Can anyone lend some insight as to the stock "Sport Design" exhaust that was offered by Lexus? Were they any additional horsepower gains? Tonal differences? etc...
I have a new Apexi N1 inbound and would be happy to take some video to share for sound comparison.
- I actually love the sound of the stock exhaust but am wanting something slightly more aggressive sounding.
Thanks in advance! :D

|Redline SER||Will adding a glass pack reduce the raspy sound? Also I heard adding a bigger longer glass pack will make it sound deeper is that true|

I love my magna flow 2.5" exhaust. almost as quiet as stock exhaust with megan header and y-pipe. great for flow and top end power!

I bought an HKS Hi-Power muffler a while ago, and I'd say...
The muffler sounds very good, in a refined sense, but it is not loud enough to notice any difference in idle.
I'm going to experiment with a larger mid-pipe section and see if I can get a good idle tone.
But past that, it sounds really great for someone wanting a little more sound on the highway.
Definately allows you to hear yourself from inside the cabin, but only barely.

A'PEXi N1 Catback Exhaust
Exhaust: A'PEXi N1 Catback
Header/Y-Pipe?: Stock Header and y-pipe
Comments: Low rumble at idle, when cruising there is no drone, at WOT it doesn't sound raspy at all, very aggressive, and deep all throughout the RPM's. It is kind of expensive sitting at 480$ on thmotorsports but it is worth getting. If you are looking for something a bit more loud i recommend getting this catback plus an aftermarket header and y-pipe. The only CON I have is that part of the exhaust is hitting my right rear lower control arm which can be heard hitting it when starting from a stop, nothing adjusting the rubber hangers can't fix though. Definitely recommend this catback though. Will post sound clip up soon.

May I recommend taking a listen to (youtube) and considering a Magnaflow straight through muffler.
Model 14851 is a polished muffler with a 4" tip and their most aggressive sound. (competition series) Under $185.00.
Model 14829 is the same as above but is far quieter. (street series) Under $185.00
Model 11235 has no tip and a satin finish. Add your OEM tip or buy one. Under $90.00
All of the above have a 2.25" in and out.

I've personnaly heard the Tanabe Medallion some times ago when trying to exchange my previous Tacoma X-Runner for an Is300 (4 years ago) and I liked it, not loud at all but still noticeable. However as you mention those exhaust new are quite expensive... with canadian money value being low recently they retail over 7-800$ + shipping on eBay (and this is the cheapest when comparing to Apexi ws2, HKS TI and some others.
I'll wait to get 50 posts to see if there's something interesting available on the market forum..... but I think that I'm probably not the only one looking for one so chances are thin to get a used one even here.... might try the JDM shop on the next weeks, maybe I'll be lucky enough to find an altezza aftermarket exhaust

Yonaka is just your run-of-the-mill cheap replica brand. Apexi and Tanabe sound nice, though Tanabe is $500+ last time I looked.
