out of those its a toss up between the dinan and gintani. I personally would take the Dinan, but since you like something more aggressive, than the gintani would do. Plus it does look better than the dinan too

I had a recent very disappointing experience with Dinan's exhaust. PM me if you want the details, but needless to say, I will not be buying a Dinan product ever again.

My first question for anyone looking for an exhaust is what is your tolerance for drone and noise/vibration being transfered into the car? That honest answer will put you on the right path for your exhaust. There are plenty of aggressive and good sounding exhausts. But few that are refined with no drone, etc.

Ive also heard the Gintani will drone a fair amount, but it does sound good overall.

I'll toss another one at you that will give you "2 Exhausts in one". Look at the Innotech system its GREAT! With the valves closed its quieter than stock and with them open its loud as hell. Another plus is there isnt any drone that you would have if you went with gintani. There also are not any CEL light issues if you end up going with a full cat less system in the future.

Have you heard the full dinan in person? Pretty damn loud if you ask me. Listen to it first if you haven't but if you have then gintani will be your best bet

What happened? I was looking at the pully, airintake and software.

Yes it does. I had one and it droned, buzzed, boomed, whatever you want to call it. Sounded great outside the car though.
