What is the best sounding Muffler + X-pipe combination?

Might make a change...

It is going to be nearly impossible to get a concensus on which one is best? It all comes down to subjective taste. Some like it loud and high pitched and some like it quiter but lower pitched, you get the idea. Best suggestion is to hear as many as you can before you make the decision what to buy. Ultimately, it is your car that the exhaust is going on and you'll be the one that has to live with whatever system you choose.

Like Ben said everyone has their own favorites. Best thing to do is do a search and read through the many exhaust threads. I am not trying to be rude but this way you will get an idea of what people on here like. Some dont like a loud one, some are ok with it.
Here is a video a fourm member made:

No i would like it similally loud to the current set up (Just Eisenman Race), but with the extra throaty, poppy sound that an x-pipe brings, and the increase in power.

^-- just delete the secondary cats. Not really much louder, but way more aggressive sounding.

i personally love my Dinan midpipe and muffler and anyone that has heard it says it sounds amazing. even people that aren't car people say something to me when i pull in somewhere at a store or gas station so i know it is not just me. it also gave it an awesome power increase. no drone at all either. was a win win for me

i def suggest trying to hear them in person bc videos do no justice for some of these systems. i know mine sounds ten times better in person then on video as the same with others i have heard

Mr Harris will have a interesting combo shortly with the Gintanti X pipe and Dinan muffler that should sound sick as well

Scheizereiniker , I'm here gentlemen!! Sorry, I was busy having my fortnightly ass and crotch wax!! Plus I was delivering my car to have my ESS VT2 fitted.

Whats this thread about again??

Oh ya, Akra Evolution Full System sounds the best IMHO, just my five cents... LOL
Fabspeed HFC and Ex Pipe (I used to have one) also sounds great, just don't pair it with Remus, too boomy, and much drone. Maybe AA, or Akra Slip on haha

And as my cousin Bruno once asked: "Burt Reynolds, keep him in the ghetto or train to Auschwitz?"

He also asked; "How do you deal with that awkward situation of somebody in a wheelchair coming and you want to push them away but you don't want to create a scene? How do you turn them away? Do you ignore them or wheel them away?"

Don't take this the wrong way, but how much does Dinan pay you for the non-stop promoting of their product in every single exhaust question thread? Hopefully something cause you've become a non-stop ad for them.
