What is the best Exhaust for under 1000$ taking into account performance gains and sound?

One thing to consider is that N/A mods are not doing very much for this car. I would suggest picking an exhaust based on looks/sound. Performance gaines will all be in the same range. (very little gaines).

i would go for the greddy or borla for that price range. The best performance gaines would be from titanium exhaust, which drops 40-50 lbs. off the car, but then you are looking at 1500-2500$

<span style="color:darkblue">The problem with asking people for opinions about sound is everyone has different taste. I recommended checking out the Exhaust Clips Thread. I know that listening to clips on an exhaust isn't as good as hearing it in real life, but you can get some idea.</span>

does anyone have the greddy evo2 exhaust?

Kelly (kcobean) has it. I haven't seen him around in a while though. If I were getting an exhaust, that's the one I'd want.

I think kelly (kcobean) has a sound clip of his somewhere on here on a post. Do a search and you should be able to find it. Hope this helps.

it looks stock but a bit bigger!!

YEAH, BORLA LOOKS LIKE STOCK,SOUNDS LIKE STOCK(A LITTLE DEEPER, i COULDN'T REALLY NOTICE CHANGE) AND GIVES hp LIKE STOCK( I FELT LITTLE GAIN, IF ANY...) .

tHATS FUNNY, BECAUSE EXHAUST IS SUPPOSED TO BOOST HP 10+ HP, WHEREAS INTAKE BOOSTS 5-9. i FELT TOTAL POWER INCREASE AND HP GAIN IN TOPEND FROM AEM INTAKE, BUT NOTHING FROM BORLA.

POOH.

I think Borla's make sound in high RPM cause I have that one.

and also I heard that USA's exhausts get sound in high RPM, and Japan's

get in low RPM. ( I don't know if it's true).

as Lopchild said, the Borla came in town large boxes.

it's not Y-pipe but straigt. doesn't it give us more HP?

I heard of some about that.

solone what do u mean by "sound" in upper vs lower rpms. And to those that said the Borla didn't give a power increase: Can you just not feel it or is it simply not there? Also are you referring to the true dual cat back?

i have the borla on mine and it sounds a bit deeper than stock, but then i added the resonated test pipes from kinetix racing. It really brought out the deep sound to the borla!! i love it and wouldnt change it for anything, but i wish that the pipes didnt look stock from the rear. exhaust arent gonna add much HP IMO anyways, but it does help

I just wrote down what I heard from around me.

maybe the people and I got wrong notices.

but yeah, I talked about true the dual cat back system.

I know the question was about under $1000 exhausts, but lets not forget about stillen... for 125 bucks more you get some gains (Stillen claims 16 hp (i think)...

No exhaust is going to get you 16 hp... and the stillen weighs more than stock.

My list would go as follows: Greddy/Injen tied up top for quality and sound-- both are awesome and seem to gain power.

Nismo/Fujitsubo (w/ y pipe)-- both sound sick, fuji sounding better IMO, and both have beautiful construction. Also dyno proven performance like the top two.

Borla-- gains are there, and it's cheap, and sounds good.... only part i don't like is the many pieces.
