I have to disagree here. I have never seen an OEM exhaust system
that satisfied the requirements of a performance oriented driver. OEM
systems are designed with emissions, drivability, and cost as the
primary factors, not tuning for performance. Systems from companies
such as HKS, Trust, DC Sports, etc, produce VERY fine exhaust systems,
made with premium materials, and often at a cost less than the
manufacturer. The warranty is usually a moot point since they usually
last far longer than the owner.
Just my .02 worth.
