Quietest front pipe

I would like to replace my front pipe simply because of the rusting of the rear flange, there is barely anything left.

Switching to an aftermarket is appealing simply for having stainless. I'm not interested in power, I would like something ideally as quiet or close to the stock front pipe.

I'm looking in the classifieds for newer stock exhausts but there aren't may.


Suggestions?

Keep an eye open on classifieds for another OEM frontpipe. Shipped? You can't get much quieter than that.

Go to an exhaust/weld shop and ask them to cut and weld another flange on for you.

An aftermarket front pipe will be the true noise maker so another stock one may be best.

I know what you mean by the rust, I have an oem overpipe/front pipe with rusted/warped flanges that are about to leak any day.

I’m also fairly confident that no matter what you choose, you’ll break off the overpipe studs due to rust so it’ll be best to have a replacement handy.

JDL UQFP or HKS double res FP are two good aftermarket options not really much louder then stock and can clean up the tone of other aftermarket headers and/or catbacks.

I've been running a Ultimate Racing resonated over front pipe combo. No louder than stock and sounds a lot smoother.

This or Fujitsubo dual resonated catless front pipe, very quiet with some exhaust setup.
Personally, I'll keep the stock one.

To second this. I have replaced stock front pipe with HKS dual resonated. Just a bit louder (or just different sound) but the sound is better overall. For reference, exhaust is HKS HiPower Spec-L and stock header. There is a definite performance gain at higher RPMs ... with JRSC though.
