Default JDM Hawkeye Exhaust Options

Hi All,

I know this has been done a few times before but I still haven't found the answers I was hoping for.

Basically, I was absolutely set on getting a Tomei exhaust after watching some videos online, links below. Two things are concerning me though, firstly everywhere I see them for sale they taper to 2.5" where they join the downpipe and secondly for the price I could nearly get a full stainless turbo back and a remap.

With the above in mind, are there alternatives that give a similar sound, I get not being titanium it's never going to sound exactly the same? Does anyone have any videos showing some other examples, similar to the video links below to get a perception of how they actually sound driving rather than just at a standstill?

Tomei have had a few that have welds that fail. Invidia titan is a manderel bent titanium exhaust, 3" all the way, just waiting to fit mine, but jdm needs a custom down pipe to connect up.

My JDM had a Tomei expreme and it didn't sound like that. Either that one is also decat or its just the video not giving a true representation - which happens most of the time. People often say the JDMs really scream up high in the revs, like a motorbike, but I now have a straight through centre and a Nurspec box (standard cat is still on the car) and mine doesn't. You pretty much have to decat to get the noise I think your after so your cheaper option inc remap sounds like the way to go I'd say. Bit of a bugger come MOT time though.
