I wasn't aware Tanabe made an SVT-specific exhaust. I'd be interested in hearing it. For the most part, all the systems available will give you similar gains. The differences lie mainly in the system's sound and construction quality. Shop for a sound you like and that won't drive you nuts, make sure its good quality and you've found your system.

The Borla sounds pretty nice, and I've used their products in the past (excellent quality). That is what I plan on buying, but maybe Focus Sport's system will impress me...

I have heard good things about Focus Sports system, if I had not gone with the Borla, their system would be one I would have def checked into. Focus Sport makes good quality performance parts, well I think anyway. lol.....

*Concerning the Tanabe*

I would be a little shy about anything that would have a price of only $200.00, sorry to me quality, reputation and performance matters when I purchase aftermarket performance parts. I've been down that road with, saved money then, but sure was sorry for not spending the extra to get what I should have gotten in the first place. Lesson learned on my part.

Just my .02, not pun intended toward anyone.
