depends what u want? i think both look proper (size wise)...but the tanabe is louder than the borla. i have the borla and im pretty happy with it, im still able to talk to the passengers in the car lol. u hear a deep hum from 1-3k rpm and after that it goes away (thats when the cai kicks in with vtec haha)AccordLeGeNd said:I'm buying my exhaust soon and i still can't decide if i should get the borla or the tanabe! i heard both are really good but i don't really know which ones better performance wise. Can u guys share your opinions? thanks
yes they claim to add 12hp, but honestly i got it for the look and tone...i felt no hp difference at all. here is some pix of the system i took ofAccordLeGeNd said:quick question for u....i was reading that the borla pipes are really small....not even 2".... is this true? they also claim 12 hp gain....do u feel the hp gain? im really close to buying the borla so i jes wanna know everything b4 i waste 600 bux hahah.....thx
it doesnt look EXACTLY stock, but its not really obvious unless u got your eyes on it for a bit. magnaflow, greddy, tanabe, and borla are the most popular catbacks amongst our cars.....and ask anyone who has any of those, u wont feel hp or torque gain, altho itwill prolly bump your dyno up some what, its all about the tone and styling man. if u compare the stock exhaust with that of the borla, im sure u can tell hte diffNsaladino said:If an exhaust looks stock and you cant feel a hp gain whats the point in spending $600 for it, I'm confused.
Dissatisfied with how the Comptechs look?as2222 said:hmm.. so basically .. oval for deeper... round for higher pitch.. a lot of people say that greddys have the perfect sound and that comptech and borla are not so loud... and dissatisfied with the looks. I think the ill go for the japanese brand..
