at idle it has the same TONE as the supra, but not as loud at idle...sounds great though, its def. the deepest exhaust tone (compared to hks)

but you should buy it from suprastore.com or even the .net store...

install can be done in 30 minutes if you have access to ramps , or even if you just use a jack.

The exhaust is $450-475, so he's charging WAAAAAYYYY too much for the install. It only takes 15 minutes, so he's charging $400/hr :bitching:

$400/hour?

Does the Evo comes with a Catback?

$400/hour?

Straight Math....

If he's charging $100 for a 15 minute job, then essentially he's charging $400/hr ... [i.e. 4 x 15 minutes in 1 hour or 4 x $100]

No matter how you put it, no one should pay $100 for an exhaust install, ESPECIALLY when he's buying it through the installer!

evo is a nice catback.. the only other catback exhausts for the IS are the two tanabe's and i believe the apex-i n1...

but the evo specifically is a pretty nice exhaust.. deep tone, one of the quieter ones (in cabin), nice looking muffler/tip. that price you got is a bit of a rip tho...
