I prefer the Toda.....quality looks immense and looks alot better than the HKS.....just alot of money!
Saying that though if you go on TRO then in the traders section see Touge distribution, James has got a cancelled order on a Toda cat back which hes selling at a reduced price.

I dont like the little grill bits that go in the triangle cutouts which come with the HKS exhaust.

According to my Jap parts source, the HKS exhaust hasnt actually been made by HKS but a European company which HKS has given the approval to do so its not a proper Jap HKS exhaust. :(

Hmm you might struggle to hear some views on the Toda as not many people have it.. lots like the Milltek but if you have the money the HKS is better quality and only loud when you rag the thing. The HKS has impressed me so far on the quality bit :).

Who was that quote from?

Surely you can fit it yourself and save some money, its only a exhaust. :)

It is Toda, afterall ;) to be expected man. As will be the case for anything with reputed Jap Quality/Jap scene recognition. From Alloys, to Harnesses, Exhausts to Brides - it's standard procedure to expect silly sums.

My magnex was a very good fit and sounds very nice too, but if you want noise make your own custom pipe with single outlet, the personal touch :)
