Just ordered the Tanabe Super Medallion Hyper exhaust
Got it for 760 shipped.
If anyone is interested let me know i have the link to buy it.
If you want something better looking then the borla and is 100 percent japanese exhaust system this is the way to go for 200 more.
Super Medalion Hyper Spec
Bred from race technology, designed for street-level performance, and geared for clean styling, take the performance to the next level. With an extensive history in developing exhaust systems, the Super Medalion Hyper Spec is an ideal combination of a free-flowing straight-through design for a balance of performance, durability, and style.
High Efficiency Main Muffler
Tanabe's highly accomplished Research and Development team were able to extract the maximum power potential of each individual exhaust application. Clean sporty exhaust note throughout the rpm range. Simple, straight-through main muffler minimizes backpressure. Constructed of highly polished stainless steel, the Super Medalion Hyper Spec has performance with style.
All Super Medalion Hyper Spec exhaust systems have a simple big-mouth style 115mm (41/2in diameter) or 100mm (4in diameter) exhaust tip that fully accentuates the polished oval muffler can. Laser etched "HYPER MEDALION" graphics finish off the clean straight cut tip.
Complete High Quality SUS304 Stainless Steel Construction
Featuring mandrel bends, the Super Medalion Hyper Spec is 100% SUS304 stainless steel, 1.2mm thickness piping, for maximum weight reduction and optimal durability. Stainless steel is also used throughout the entire system from the exhaust hangers to the main muffler canister for enhanced appearance and increased resistance to the elements. 2.5mm or 7mm flanges are used throughout the exhaust for the various temperature sections. Argon welding is used on all of the stainless steel components. The highly polished finish of the main muffler canister compliments any vehicle's appearance.
Proprietary design gives our exhaust an edge over the competition.
The Tanabe manufacturing facilities takes pride in being at the leading edge of top-notch quality construction and technological development. Our products are constructed in accordance to the industry manufacturing standard of ISO9001 (International Organization for Standardization 9001) Certification thus placing stringent quality assurance controls in place to ensure only the best.
Race proven straight-form design allows for a minimum amount of bends for maximum performance. Mandrel bent pipes are used to optimize exhaust flow.
After thorough research, the densities of the packing material are calculated to Tanabe's own specifications for the aggressive deep exhaust note.

i didnt know the tanabe was out.
I guess its the same quality as borla if not alittle better.
The tips on the exhaust look better than borla. Im sure it sounds just as good. And the fact that i can say i have a tanabe exhaust on my accord sounds cool.
Greddy sounds alittle better i am sure but i heard the build quality isnt as good as borla or tanabe.
I am just looking for a 5-6HP gain nothing spectacular. I am sure no one will make a an exhaust system for our cars that produce over 7-10 hp if that.
If someone made a full titanium exhaust like Tanabe and had an exhaust for our cars i would of gotten it.
But i doubt we will see that day

Thanks . i wish i had a digital camara to provide a sound clip. but i can definitly show pictures. Maybe ill try to borrow one from someone that has a camara to make sound clips. I heard the exhaust isnt all that bad and will give me 5hp more and no torque increase . I believe russian x has the tanabe exhaust with pics already if you do a search .
It is being shipped as we speak so i might get it by friday next week and have it installed saturday along with my phillips HID kit 6000k from Xenon Depot.

I just opened the box to the Tanabe and the tips look good . I think the stock ones are small. But all i can say is this exhaust is heavy. I would assume the stock exhaust is heavy too.
I wonder if the greddy is heavy too? who knows.
I will be installing it tomorrow hopefully along with my HID made by phillips 6000k
I definitly like the stanless steel look.
