I've seen the clip but it's with stock header, I'm interested to hear it (and if it is droning or not) with some UEL header.

Those are the exact mods I already have (Tomei UEL header, OFT stage2+, Blitz SUS drop in filter). A CB is next

For $1500��.......yeah not worth it. All of the Tomei's cost $1000 and weigh less. You can use the extra $500 to buy a front pipe and overpipe.

If Tomei would build an dual-exit titanium CB, I would be the first in line. I have their UEL header and it's incredibly well built...

what if I told you that the "Tomei" exhaust and this FactionFab exhaust is probably built at the same factory in China...

this is probably the closest you'll get to a twin exit Tomei exhaust. there's nothing special about the products that Tomei USA currently produces, people just can't see past the brand.

I've first heard of Tomei few months back when I started searching for a header, I'm not an american and by no means a Tomei fan

I'm just saying that I ended up with a very high quality piece of hardware and I'll buy their products in the future based on my experience with their product.

That being said, the overall quality of this product would count for nothing if it's droning or it's raspy...and this is still unknown

They do. Some Facebook group had a guy posting about being the first one in america with it lately. It sounded ok. Not my preference, but definitely not the worst option out there.

you find me a lighter full exhaust and I'll but it, as long as it doesn't end up as loud as Anthony's. I don't care how it sounds, I just don't want to be a cop magnet.

If there is some cut rate titanium exhaust manufacturer or someone doing something with traditional materials that is somehow even lighter, I'm all in.

I'm sure you can find a competent, local-ish fab shop to make you a custom titanium exhaust.

Well I just ordered it with their black Friday sale! 1275 shipped

I will be pairing it up with my Ace headers/overpipe, Hooker FP

Before I install I am looking for a different front pipe. The Cat in the Hooker Front Pipe was rattle a while and sounded like it eventually blew out.

Im thinking of the ACE FP since its designed for the headers, I know with this Ti exhaust it will be loud as Fk.

I currently have the Borla catback which is decent but I want ultimate weight reduction. Without being as loud as a single exit Ti setup
