There are several different systems available. A simple check on ebay will show various that all look fine. I am keen on replacing the Y pipe and the cat back for increased performance potential. However, I am very keen on being allowed onto race tracks, so am keen on the noise level not creeping up too much.

Does anyone have any experience on any of the individual manufacturers systems? Milltek seems to be the most popular, since it appears that both Litchfields and SVM use them, but I am ever on the look out for a cheaper alternative!

Milltek do a nice stainless steel one which is well made and will definately get you on to the track. A little quiet for my tastes though. Akrapovic do a very nice but pricey titanium system that should also get you on pretty much every track with the added bonus of a tasty weight saving as well :thumbsup:

Hmmm, if you want to be cheaper that the very reaonable priced Miltek system Akrapovic is not the 1st logic choice...

Why do people complain when some one asks a question, what's the point of the forum, might as well have shut it down after a year and just let people search!!

:blahblah:

I have a gtc Titan 80 mm and gtc ti y pipe non resonated. I had it sound tested at 103db so I can get on most track days!

It is a great exhaust with a crazy sound!

Well I went for the XSPower titanium version as not being located in UK. It is going to be installed in a week or two, so keen to do a sound level measured as the car is being prepared for the track use. With secondary cats removed my target is 98-99db, but we will see if it turns out realistic...

Thank you all. Although there is lots of information about exhausts, there is not too much about the sound levels....

I would love, just love, to able to walk in and demand the Akarapovic system, but the car itself was stretching finances enough.

I was really after a cheaper alternative, but have that old mantra 'buy cheap buy twice' ringing in my ears.

The cheap chinese ones may be okay, but the first I will know about it being too loud is when i get refused entry to a track day. I will look into the others mentioned here.

I think that the XSPower one looks very similar to one sold by 'topgear', in the UK. I can order the whole system from the US (downpipes, Y pipe, cat back) for $1600 ($1300) if I lived in the States.

I am doubtful, looking at it, that 99db is realistic. It looks like a straight through pipe to me. Good luck!

Here is the system. The mufflers I believe is straight through design, but then again many "genuine JDM" systems are built like that...

Hi. I am new to the forum and a new (now skint!) owner of a 59 plate black / black GTR. I am also looking at the XS power titanium option in the 90 mm with the resonated Y pipe. I would be most interested in your thoughts and opinion on the sound of your fitment. I loves that "zinging" sound that you get with a Titanium system. Please let me know how you find it.

FWIW I went for the Milltek specifically because it's track friendly.

Many of the others sound nice and will wake your neighbours up (if you have any), but I wanted to be able to put the car through it's paces off the public road. :)

I sure will share my thoughts as it will go on the car next week. Hope it fits well though the noise level is my biggest concern as the car is going to see some use on Spa and Ring. Spa is 105db....

I'd be interested to hear from any one that has the XS Power exhaust fitted. Just been looking on their site and a stainless 3inch system Y-pipe and rear section seems to come in around £850, which is fantastic.

I'm after a loud system (I know childish lol) and am not worried about track db. Like to know what owners think about the fitment and quality if poss :thumbsup:

I would assume it being too loud for most of the trackdays with limits of 105db. Design wise the 90degree bends at 1to2 ar not the best solution for the flow.
I don't think it exceeds track limits. David.Yu has one on his GTR I think and it sounds awesome! On their website they claim good gains too.

Here is the Dynograph off their site.This is for full Akra Evo system including y-pipe. The gains are not that great knowing that they compare it to stock system with cats as a baseline. I would assume that 17hp difference is hardly to be felt past 5k RPM. I would think that Miltek or any other system which replaces the y-pipe will demonstrate exact same performance. Im not saying it is a "bad" system just want you to see/challenge what the manufacturers are trying to make us believe.... In my oppinion if you like the design and sound then GTC TITAN is the system for you to consider.
