    Ive had my Tsudo ETS catback for 2 years 7 months now.
    as some may kno the hanger thats welded to the muffler canister isnt the best weld.
    n mine actually broke off of its weld on the muffler canister n i had to get it re welded back on.

    take into consideration im in pa winter salt, n the roads where im at r bad. alot of bumps. n also my car is abit bumpy.

    im not so much worried about the hanger.

    i like the tsudo sound, i recenty took my header back off. n put back stock one.

    i wanna get a new catback or replace the muffler part.

    i can get the tsudo axel back for 150 shipped. OR there is one that is almost identical BUT its JDM brand for the whole catback. for the same price.

    my question is will there b a diff in sound betwen the tsudo or the jdm brand?

    I would assume the sound would be slightly different. Not all exhaust sound the same, even though they look simillar its hard to tell if the internal parts are designed the same way.
    JDM Brand?....lol...U mean a "Name Brand"???

    To answer your Question a Name Brand exhuast like GReddy, HKS, Shunk2 etc...the noise will be Higher pitched slightly...

    I have the BBP a.k.a. Tsudo axle-back...Same here the Muffler hanger broke OFF...had to Re-Weld it back on too.

    I also LOVE the sound it makes..."sadly" I got a State Ref Ticket for it...I am back to Stock for now...

    yea i hear ya blackedout. thats y i am undecided

    but i dont want it to sound crappy if i was to get the no name brand one.

    or JDM brand lol thats what it says
    Tsudo/Megan Drift-Spec/ebay brand all sound alike.
    I'd youtube sound clips if you can find the name of the exhaust you are looking at.
    ight ill try that
    Brand of the muffler its self will determine sound of the exhaust system, not the piping and how its run.

    I disagree, the piping and how its run will determine how much back pressure there is, this in turn will change the sound out the other end, what is engraved on the exhaust has nothing to do with sound, certain brands will try to obtain certain noises (ex. magna flow is known for deeper sounding exhaust) this is all done by how the internals of the exhause are made.

    Well depending on what your willing to spend custom is the way to go. I dropped $300 (including a $25 tip) for my custom exhaust. Maybe you should call around to some shops before placing your money on a name brand exhaust. I was going to buy a N1 Tsudo but glad I went custom. Hope your search goes good!

    If your looking to upgrade your exhaust, or change mufflers, find out what the dB rating is on the muffler. Some mufflers have under 90dB's and others are higher. IMO, Magnaflow, Borla and TRD sounds the best. Greddy, HKS, Megan, Injen for ex. are louder, and very obnoxious sounding, too ricey!
