How much louder is each over stock? Any problems fitting either kit?

Im on the fence as to which one to get. I'll be single outlet (please see my listing for the diffuser and other stuff on blowout sale).

Thanks.

I have BSR. Nice sound but not loud. Stainless and good quality. Good fit although you need to do the bumper cutout and trim. Bought gtom GS.

anyone have full underbody shots of either exhaust also?
sound clips would be awesome too. ive always been looking at getting the BSR dual exit catback. but the price just doesnt warrant it.

to be honest with you the mufflers dont change the sound so much as they do the loudness. the single muffler jt sounds good its not too loud but it still sounds good on acceleration. Mind you jt exhaust does not come vbanded i did that my self all the sections but the cat connect together with slip fittings. and almost every exhaust you would buy would be louder than stock

exhaust

Paco,
thats a clean looking car. Is that the JT you're running? Single muffler without resonator?

and pardon the ignorance, but "vbanded"?

yep single muffler and its not overly loud at all the only time its super loud is when your running it up around 3k and even then its not that loud. vbands http://www.google.com/images?q=vband&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi its just an easier way to connect exhaust piping basicly i can drop out my cat any time i want drive with a test pipe or straight downpipe. If someone were to get the option with the resinator it would be right after where my cat is. i have a video but its not overly good i might make another one with my friend tonight possibly if not tomorrow (im kinda sick from carlisle).

Thanks, so youre not running a resonator?

And sick of carlisle as in, sick of it, or sick because you ate something at carlisle?

nope no resinator i imagine that if you were to get the resinator it would be alot closer to stock loudness. I mean sick as in i caught something at carlisle :S. ill make a short video in my garage, but it will not sound like normal driving it might be a tone quieter.
edit: the mic on my camera just blows out the sounds so i need to do drive bys to get good sound

Thanks for that update. Did you keep it stock? i.e. left the BSR resonator on and so forth?

BSR is catback with the res. Connected up to 3" dp with sportcat. Tell the truth, I am not seeing any especially noticeable power increases though it is responsive. Course I don't usually go over 50-60.

After listening to your Auto X Vid, your exhaust sounds like every other bumble bee in a tin can exhaust you would hear on any Honda. Do you really think it sounds good? Wow. Anyone else think that sounds awful, or is just me?
