The dyno printouts which will be shown later show a definite increase in power. (Dyno results will be shown at the completion of the June 2009 R&D Session) Make note that this test was done with the Medalion Touring exhaust, which is meant to provide a classy sound without attracting too much attention. Gains should be even greater with the race-inspired Concept G exhaust, however there were issues with fitment, and it'll have to be tested at a later date. Nevertheless, please be on the lookout for both of these exhaust systems, available to the public soon!

Damn, I want the Concept G, but looks like there will be a long wait due to the fitment issue.

AK,

FYI -- Tanabe R&D was updated

Might want to merge the threads.

Is this just me or does it look like a y-pipe back exhaust? Other than that the Medallion looks and sounds great.

Edit: Nevermind- the other thread shows the aftermarket y-pipe!

I was browsing and saw this thread... I really like this exhaust looks really good. I went ahead and called tanabe USA. According to them when they did a test fit couple months ago the concept G wasn't fitting right... The medallion fitted fine but they told me that it was not making that much HP... ALSO i was told that they are revising the exhaust and I believe there's another R&D session coming up this month... or end of this month.

It sounds awesome. I really want this exhaust system. Is it available to fit UK RHD models?

Sounds great. Has anyone heard this together with Stillen's CBE in person to know how they compare in sound quality and volume? I'm undecided between them!
