Vanguard is a dual canister design and Vorsteiner a single can... so no, not the same.

I have the Vanguard. It's twin cannister. To me the Vanguard looks more like the Amuse system.

I used to own a G35 with the Amuse Ti exhaust - the build quality is very similar.

Just because an exhaust "looks" similar to another exhaust doesn't mean it is - you have to look at the material, welding and bending.

As for the Agency power, my buddy has the Agency power exhaust on his EVO X - the welds and material are definitely not as good as the Vanguard or Amuse... I haven't seen the Vorsteiner or Meistershaft to commnet...

Exactly look at the pipes, welding bends and Hanger location and style. they are a 100% match. I think most would agree !?!

I agree the welds do look the same. It might sound odd but when I first saw the welds I could even tell which country both the systems were made in.

In my line of work we have only a couple manufacturers who make instruments for different orthopedic companys, it wouldn't surprise me if the same manufacturer makes those exhaust systems . just a hunch

A quote from the movie Armageddon comes to mind "American components, Russian components, all made in Taiwan!"
