Default New owner of 370z, help with exaust?

Hey everyone, I just signed up in the forum today. I bought a 2009 black 370z MT a little over a month ago. I have been researching for the past month for aftermarket parts. So far i like the borla cat-back system and the GReddy Spectrum Elite SE. I would like to hear feedback on these systems and any systems that i have overlooked. Im looking for a loud tuner sound. Also any reviews on the takeda cold air intake? any advice/imput would be really appreciated. Thank you.

Skip the Takeda, worthless, look at Injen or Stillen for intake
Exhaust: Stillen, Fast Intentions, Berk are pretty popular. The others do not get the attention as those three here but there have been a few who have picked them up.
Besides CBE you might consider high flow cats or long tube headers if you want an even bolder sound note.

The high flow cats and exhaust will make an impressive note....not being too loud tho, but you dont want it boisterous. I have the Nismo CBE, and Stillen dual intakes w/HFC's.....if you want a good exhaust IMO, go for Fast Intentions or Berk.

GTM also has a very nice exhaust from what I've seen, although down the line I will probably replace my Nismo (came with the car) with an F.I.

I would not recommend the Long Tube Headers unless either (a) your state is lenient on inspections or (b) you don't mind putting the stockers back on once a year. Otherwise get some HFC's.

For your first upgrade, I would probably recommend a CAI, either Stillen G3 or the Injen Long Tubes. They show great gains and smoothing, and are inexpensive and fairly simple to install. HP/$ I think they're better than exhaust products.

I went with Stillen CBE and am very pleased with the sound, performance gain, ease of installation and the price. ($1069, shipping included)

congrats! I would avoid the takeda intakes...been shown to actually lose hp on independent dynos.

Where can you get them for 1069 shipped? Am I looking at the wrong thing here:

STILLEN : STILLEN 370Z Dual Exhaust System

Ordered mine back in November when the exhaust went on sale for a short period. Was expecting to spend around $1200, (advertised price on Stillen's web site) then I checked their site a few days later and the price had dropped to $1069 and I could not resist. Lucky timing around the holidays!
