I'd go for an HKS resonated if you go for a full exhaust system later and non resonated if that's the only exhaust part you're looking at for the future.

I've seen too many other aging prety bad

I had mine custom made for about £350.

Sounds pretty awesome. I told the guy at Sub Zero exactly what i wanted ie. loud and raspy and raw.

He made it using 304 stainless (he's done tonnes of them) and for my requirements made the two pipes part of the y-pipe much longer before it merges into 1 which he said will increase the sound and give me what i want.

im very happy with it. Ive got some before vids, and now i just need to take an after vid and then ill show u guys

PS: non res.

Why would you want a quiet resonated one? May as well not change it at all or just buy a Porsche 911 and enjoy crap sounds

You'll want a resonated one if you mod it enough to have the exhaust system get your brain and ears damaged or your car banned from a track ;-)
Most people (me included) want a nice sound, not something too crazy loud.

If its that modified as to damage your brain you'd be better off changing the full system, not just the y-pipe.
Its not crazy loud, its just loud. I disagree though, i think most people do want something quite loud which matches the GTR as the type of car that it is. The most common modification on GTR's is the y-pipe for that reason.

Over here in Dubai you cant get banned from a track for it being too loud either :)

Thay all range in price from 250 to 800 ? ? ?

Thanks.
Just had a non resonated Miltek Y pipe fitted at the optimisation service and its pretty boomy in the mid range in top gear. Sounds great through the gears. I've kept the OEM Y pipe just in case its gets too annoying or if its too loud for track days.

No remap or anything? Any noticeable performance improvement??

Resonated permits to gain power and sond while keeping reasonable volume... if you don't care making too much noise maybe you care about keeping your ears usefull :) I got a lot of friends who got their audition quite altered by too loud exhaust systems ... same if you use your car for long drives (like an hour or two if not more) ... you might wana keep it "reasonable"

Nope, I like loud things but I'm more one of those driving a GT-R making 1K bhp without having the blonde saying "nope I'm not going in your car it's too loud in there sell this thing please".

I perfectly understand "non resonated" when you keep everything else quite stock or with a restrictive 76mm catback but Full exhaust with Down-pipes is quite enough to get trouble.

My R35 is with a huge resonator and is far from beeing quite, it's just not stupidly loud.
That was before the turbo kit and engine and it's plenty loud enoug: MONSTAKA GT-R35 2011 AT PAUL RICARD - YouTube

Is the blonde a women? Cant be sure these days.

If so and she ask me to sell my car, I would tell her to do one, and punch her in the vulva.

My choice is GTC Titan 90mm non-resonated and I am pretty happy with it. I guess the only thing that would make me more happy is more noise and growl. But we don't have racing tracks in Bulgaria, so I don't care about regulations.

Iv got a resonated one and its not quiet. Its just right. Wouldnt want it any louder. Your unlikly to get through sound test at track with non res either. Im past that boy racer stage with loads of noise. Plus i like to hear my tunes on the motorway.

SOUND!

Oh, and some hp gains, they say about 10-15 hp for Ti.

But it's strongly recommended to have a remap along with the y-pipe, you can buy an AP for pocket change these days.
