Fujitsubo vs Thermal R&D

So i've been in the market for a new exhaust for a couple months now. I've tried ordering a Tanabe SMH online only to be notified a week later that they were out of stock. My second try was a Thermal R&D. Ordered it online and, again, was notified a week and a half later that they were out of stock. On sunday, I ordered a Thermal from Horsepowerfreaks.com since they are a reputable site with great customer service, but they just called me today and said they were on back order till the end of october. I read great reviews about thermal and I like the deep tone and the stock look. I was perusing ebay for jdm parts today and I stumbled upon a Fujitsubo Legalis R for $600 shipped to my door. This seems like a great deal considering they retail for $885. Before I hop on this deal, how does the sound compare to thermal? I've read that it is a little more quiet and i'm okay with that, im just looking to see what you guys think. Thanks!

Re: Fujitsubo vs Thermal R&D

I don't know anything about Thermal R&D exhausts, I've never seen one on a car here but I have had experience with Fujitsubo exhausts and I'd definitely recommend them, they sound lovely and are a quality product. And I have to agree with you on your last comment... JDM yO!

Re: Fujitsubo vs Thermal R&D

IMO, the sound clips from fubi's website sound similar to the twin loop. I'm glad I failed to find the tanabe and thermal in stock and stumbled upon this on eBay
