Exhaust: JIC Full Ti
Header/Y-Pipe?: Megan header/Toyomoto Y-pipe
Comments: Love this exhaust! Sold it but, the thing weighs about 6lbs only!(JIC exhaust) Was really quiet when I had just the axel back and sounded very close to the HKS Hyper/Carbon-Ti but, had the header/y-pipe and custom b-pipe installed and had a much greater effect in the noise levels. Has drones around 70-80mph.
This is a perfect example for those of who wants or is getting a exhaust system...gives you an idea of what you need that fits your needs! +rep to lilboi for making this thread! I am leaning towards a APEXi WS2, HKS Ti-Limited, or a Tanabe Hyper Medallion! Thanks guys for the input!
Is there really only 3 of us on this site with this exhaust??Exhaust: JIC 505S Ti (full titanium)
Loudness: 5-6 (has a distinct sound compared to mild/stainless steel exhaust systems. takes about 15-20 minutes of driving to reach its full sound potential. sounds best and very rich around 3k RPMs & also sounds wicked higher in the powerband. other than that is it surprisingly quiet despite its lack of a resonator. no droning or fartcan bullshit.)
Quality: 10 (impeccably perfect welds, full titanium, & high-end hardware. slightly shorter than the stock exhaust. 60mm piping.)
Overall: 10 (JIC absolutely makes the best exhaust systems & components out there...just be prepared to pay for it)
Comments: I only buy exhausts from JIC. I had custom 2.75" stainless piping on my swapped Civic Hatch and a stainless universal JIC muffler...it sounded crazy. Now this system. And once I get my V160 in my IS I'll be going for a SRT turbo. When that happens I already have a titanium JIC universal muffler to pair with larger custom piping. :approve:
Intake:TU snorkel mod, K&N drop in, lid for airbox removed, PLP intake pipe(same as Joe-z)
B-pipe: custom stainless straight pipe(no resonators)
Rear section: JIC full Ti
Quality:10/10 as mentioned welds are BEAUTIFUL, its all titanium & weighs a hair over 8lbs for the rear section totally assembled.
Sound(albeit subjective) 7-8/10(not as unique sounding as my previous greddy evo2, tame @ idle, but once it warms up you can tell it's not your run of the mill stainless fart-can back there likely from thin walled Ti piping vs. thicker steel)
Loudness(also subjective): 5-6/10 quieter than the evo2, less of a growl & more of a purr, no rasp without the silencer, with the silencer it's damn near stock sounding. was very surprised since the JIC doesn't have a resonator & is an overall smaller muffler
