I think each has their own in preference but watch exhaust videos and compare prices to help you decide on one. I went with the Rogue Engineering El Diablo and it's the best mod I've done period. Absolutely love the deep tone it puts out while keeping some rasp. It's also a quality build with really nice tips.

+1 its really personal preference. I don't like a loud exhaust and prefer to hear the intake via a CSL airbox. mmm yum! While some people like straight pipes...

I've been on the stock exhaust bandwagon for the longest time. I've ran super sprint race, milltek, scza, etc. and I always come back to stock (catless with resonators).

Bought a dixis exhaust and it's now my favorite exhaust (also 14lbs dixis vs 56lbs stock). Non of the aftermarket exhausts lasted more than a month with me (too civic like down low or too much drone). Surprisingly dixis has very little to no drone even with catless. It also doesn't sound like a civic down low (all aftermarket exhausts I ran sounded like crap down low). Dixis sound good in lower rpm and awesome at wot. I'm confident my dixis is here to stay.

I've been more than pleased with my Supersprint Sport.

I agree, it has one of the best sounds and tips of the bunch. I'm running euro headers as well, and it doesn't need much more than that.

How do you feel about the weight of the SS sport?

I have both AA and Megan racing. I like the AA for it's exhaust note, as much as the Megan racing. The Megan racing only cost me $480, and sounds great, light( half of the AA) and built well. All exhaust have different bullet points, but paying 3k to 5k for a rear section is ludicrous.
