If anyone has the tanabe hypermedallion can you tell me how it sounds. Im looking for a not to loud sound with nice and low tone and no interior annoying drone. I know the comptech has the sound i want but lacking in the hp department. Also does anyone know which exhaust system gives the best hp and torque gains:cool:

Thanks everyone for always taking the time to give good replys

I have the Tanabe Hyper Medallion on my 2000 Civic EX and I love it. It is not loud at all. I don't know how much hp you are expecting but I noticed a little difference when I put it on. I don't know if that helps any.

well, you really dont get very good gains out of an exhaust anyway. maybe like 5 hp at most. so i would choose an exhaust based mostly on the look and sound of it. and if you get a catback, you will lose low end power and lose fuel economy since you will subconsciously step on the gas more to compensate for loss of power. and i know people have gotten good gains out of the comptech exhaust.

well looks like tanabe is out unless i here some good news about it. Now up to comptech greddy, and possibly apexi
Between Comptech & Greddy, I think you the decision would be based on how dramatic of a look/sound you want. The Greddys definitely make their presence known... they're a good size, and the sound is awesome- deep, yet not too loud. The Comptechs look good and are very subtle. It's personal preference, imo. :)

but i have heard the mx has an annoying interior drone. Have you heard this or was that just an isolated case
All exahusts, not just Greddy, have a drone to it. But usually that goes away when you're not accelerating heavily. Of course when you're at a stop and you go, or when you're merging onto the freeway or something, you'll defintely hear it. But for my bf's Greddy MX's, and the same for my RS*R Invidia exhuast, for both systems you can't really hear it when you're going at a steady speed. :)
