So I am in the market for getting an exhaust, and I have it narrowed down to two...

I am going between the Tanabe Medallion Touring Exhaust, and the HKS Silent Hi Power Exhaust. Judging by some different sound clips I've researched, they both sound pretty comparable, claiming a nice sporty sound, but no drone at cruising speeds. They are also both around my price point.

Does anyone have any input or additional information on either that may help sway my decision?

My Z is my daily driver, so with that said, if I do go with the HKS, is it worth it for the little extra money for a cat back?

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

^ If you get the full HKS exhaust you get the midpipe as opposed to just the muffler. Exhausts are hard to judge without being in person but i will say that for me the HKS is one of the nicer exhausts i've had in terms of liveability - not too loud, great tone and quality is excellent.

Think u should wait a couple weeks and grab the turbo-kits.com exhaust :) that I helped R&D and I think it's Badass.
:yeahthat: It's either the HKS or the Turbo-kits.com exhaust for me.

Whaaaa? It's finally happening?
Well according to Jesse @ turbo-kits.com, the cai should be in this week and the cat-back in two more weeks. I actually have to call him and see wus up, but none the less all should be ready to go no later than the end of the month :).

Yea I'm personally leaning more towards the Tanabe just because of the looks. From what I remember, they both showed about the same increase in hp, and both sounded good...

Call me weird, but the only thing keeping me back is the fact that I already have the HKS Intake, so part of me wants to get the HKS exhaust to match...
