I know the topic has been beaten to death, but I still want the last-minute opinions of anyone willing to chime in.

I am ordering my exhaust on Monday.

It is down to:
<ul type="square">[*]MBRP
[*]FocusSport (No Stealth)
[*]TruBendz /w Borla muffler
[/list]
Future Upgrades will be:
<ul type="square">[*]Volant Cold Air Intake
[*]Volant CAI RAM Feed
[*]Steeda Shorty Headers
[*]Focus Central High-Flow Cat
[*]TruBendz Flex Pipe
[/list]

Thanks to any who reply with helpful input.

MBRP. had it over a year. Spotless and Sounds as good as day one. Fits good too...for 200 bucks you cant go wrong.

i'm sure you saw the fj exhaust shoot-out, right? seems like the easiest way to make your decision.

if you are willing to pay for either of those choices (price of each is not as important)

then i vote for the trubendz w/ borla, but if magnaflow was on the list i would recommend it instead

i love my HKS Hi power exhaust...but the MBRP is a very nice looking exhaust...of course, it was right out of the box, but clean.....very nice curves...no kinks as far as i could tell.

FINALLY!!!

I found my city's ordinance:

"(C) No person shall operate a motor vehicle having a manufacturer's gross vehicle rating of less than 6,000 lb., except a motorcycle, which exceeds 95 dB measured 20 in. (508 mm) from the exhaust outlet."

So MBRP is out... they say that with headers it will break 105 dB.

Definately a Borla!! With it's wonderful Rumble and it's burble when you let off the gas, you can't go wrong. If you're going with a Race Header, i'd definately get a resonator put in!

Go for it! You'll be glad you did!

FOCUS SPORT! I have the non-stealth and it just sounds great. A little growl anything under 3000 RPMs but past that its pretty quiet even on the highway.

If you want it quiet, FocusSport Stealth all the way.
Not a biased opinion there


I have heard the FocusSport, it is a great sounding exhaust, but, it is also 150-175 more than Trubendz Borla w/ a resonator. My wife rags on me enough about the money I put into my car,
