from a hp per dollar standpoint, no it's not worth it. they look very different from each other however, so it's really up to you. if you like the stock look, go with borla. if you want bigger, round cans instead then you might like greddy.

You should probably just search around. These two brands--along with a few others--have been compared numerous times.

I made the same comparison. Hands down it was Borla.

I have been very, very pleased. And no it does not look like stock or sond like stock.

I personally can't compare Borla to Greddy, but now after owning Greddy, the sound is quite impressive. It really gets a nice tone around 2000 rpm to 3000 rpm. Well worth the money. All I have recieved is compliments on how it sounds and looks. People say it doesn't sound anything like your typical rice rocket or a enraged bumblebee

Sound : Greddy >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> borla
Dollar-worth-ratio : Greddy > Borla

looks : Subjective.
(I personally rather prefer borla's look. I don't mind the big tip, but I hate the huge muffler can. I own greddy btw.)

Once you hear Greddy, no other exhaust sounds unique nor appealing to you.
You have to own one to realize what that is. Greddy has TRULY unique/distinctive sound.
Just for that, greddy is worth the money.

from what i hear, greddy has a nice sound, but u might be able to get some louder and deeper sounds if u customize your borla and remove those resonators....

why dont u just get the greddy mufflers and customize the piping. Piping : around 100-150 plus the mufflers, max 200(used). that's only 350 ish. Roy did it but he went single set up.

I guess some people want their exhausts to sound like fart cans... but guys we have v6's they should never sound like an i4. Low throaty sounds... not annoying at higher rpms... that's what Greddy supplies you with.

I also agree about the huge cans they use... would have been nice to get those tips on a muffler that was just slightly larger. But overall I have been 110% happy with my dual EVO2 setup ever since I first laid eyes and ears on it.

Suggestions: Buy one now.

GReddy =

hey people im new to these forums, ive got an AV6 2k5 sedan and im getting a V2 CAI in a month or so, after that my dads tinting it, and then im planning on getting an exhaust, im looking for something subtle, definitely not loud/ricey. I keep reading that CompTech and Borla maybe G-Redd sound like what im looking for but mainly on the Coupe, I doubt that it makes a difference that I have a Sedan, but what do you guys, the pros, think? am I on the right track? suggestions? I saw a thread where someone posted some links to listen to them but I wasn't able to load them... anybody know where else I can go because I really want to hear for myself.
Thanks

IMO, the Greddy sound is awesome. I have gotten nothing but compliments by dozens of people on the way it sounds. They say it doesn't sound like your typical "ricer" with a fart can but instead a nice, smooth sound that growls at WOT.

You are exactly looking at greddy.
I was in SAME boat as you. Nothing too loud, yet noticible, and must be sexy.

Does anybody know if any of these exhausts are true DUAL exhausts? I can't remember where, but I saw some pics of what I think was a dual G-Reddy... am I right? Also, does anybody know how much these things will run me? $$$... and where I can get them? online? shops? I live in S. Cali, east of east LA near Montebello (60FWY + 605FWY) . Anywhere I can read up on the exhausts online?
Thanks alot, -Oscar

The greddys are not a true dual exhaust. No company makes a true dual exhaust kit for the accords, greddy makes one for the g35/350z. There is a member on this forum who has a custom true dual exhaust with tanabe mufflers.

Which two or three exhausts do you guys think I should consider? Does anybody know how much they cost? where I can get them? online? shops? I live in S. Cali, east of east LA near Montebello (60FWY + 605FWY). One more thing... I have the Sedan which I think is roughly 2-3 inches longer so does that make a difference? Thanks

u might wanna double check with somebody about the sedan vs. coupe thing. i dunno.

GREDDY sounds awesome, u wont believe how amazing it sounds lol. no joke.
but if u wanna check other stuff out, borla, tanabe, comptech.

i got my greddy at diamond bar honda, thats not too far from where u are. i forgot how much it cost me, but around 800 bucks. i went to other shops and their prices were over the ceiling, i told them about db honda havin it so much cheaper and the guy was like: "o, then u should go there, cause no ones gonna beat that price, they are official greddy resailers" or somethin like that. so check it out.

Alright so I'm almost sure that it'll go for G-Reddy because of all these compliments that I hear on them, the only thing thats pushing me away are those CANS! lol theyre gunna stand out kuz I got mine all stock so I'll probably get somethin' to cover that up a bit along w/ a lip and skirts I guess... all I really need to know now is about the Sedan vs. Coupe difference, and the prices on the exhausts???
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

check www.optauto.com for some prices.

Cans are HUGE as I said before. thats the biggest down side.
Get a rear lip, and cover it up. make sure when you install the exhaust, get custom hanger or get it welded as close to the bumper(or the lip) as possible.

I don't even see the "cans" as a downside. Once you get the cat-back put on, your gonna love the way they actually look on your car. Gives your car such an outstanding appearance compared to most cars with stock looking exhaust such as the Borla cat-back for our cars. I still love the way it looks everytime I see it.

really? i'm the opposite, i love the stock/clean look, although the stock tips are a bit small, something just bigger than it like a 3.5inch tip i find looks VERY clean if u position it properly. My 2cents, FAT CANS = RICE, u get the same kind of gains as another catback, but with fat cans. I like the whole clean look where parts look all molded into it's place. My personal preference, but here in Vancouver, it seems like every other car has some sort of fat can, which makes the mufflers look out of place sometimes.

Fat cans = Rice, only if the "system" is rice.

Because every damn ricer start getting ebay mufflers, "big tip" became "rice".

Even if the tip is huge, as long as I see exhaust systems made by quality tuning company,
I give them props.
If every fat-can is treated "Rice", every true racing/tuning scene in japan would be rice.

yah, i totally agree...i dun mind the fat cans as long as they do something, i find that some cars look better w/fat cans than others. Eg. STI w/a greddy muffler looks really really nice, a civic w/a fat can and an oem body kit looks is just horrid!
