Lightbulb Xpipes

Hey guys, Im about to receive my ///M and have been listening to all sorts of exhausts, I fell for the gintani system, but what difference is their between a catless gintani xpipe and supersprint catless xpipe ?

And would the SS xpipe with the gintani rear muffler sound the same as if it were the full gintani package??

Thanks guys!

I have the full Gintani and love it. It drones a little at low rpms if I "Lug" the motor but IMO its worth it good luck with your decision!

Good thing about Gintani systems are they sound the same for all applications, they just get louder depending on how deep you go with the system. So obviously a gintani race+catless gintani x pipes are going to awaken the heavens.

Thanks for your feedback guys,

I called the guys at Gintani and they were helpful, so he was like go for the catless x-pipe and sport exhaust.
Since it's going to be a daily drive I figured that sounds good, what do u guys think?

I had a gintani sport exhaust and felt it was loud and would be to much for a daily driver paired with an x pipe. After my tune, it quieted down a bit. I'm thinking about paring it now with the gintani hfc x pipe.

Gintani full race (race+catless x-pipe) sounds the best. But it does drone badly.
