I know that there are a ton of threads about exhausts and how they sound, fit, etc. But how about making a list of exhausts from loudest (bomb) to softest (quieter than stock)? I'm not familiar with all the exhausts available for the RSX-S so if you guys could help me out with updating the list. Not all of this is correct so please correct me. :D

I believe the RS*R Exmag is the quietest exhaust system..

I believe on the new and updated one by silver RSX-S, that the stock exhaust is between the GReddy SP2 and the RS*R Exmag...

I may be wrong..

I think my Amuse is louder than a BuddyClub 3 or they are pretty close as mine doesn't have a resonator like the BC3. The resonated R1 is definitely quieter than the BC3. And the BC4 is alot quieter than the BC3, that was the whole point of it coming out. It's easily about 10dB quieter.

good idea for a thread :thumbsup:

EDIT: what happened to that video clip of ITR exhausts and their dB readings? Maybe you could base it on that...
DC5R Catalog

Is this the one you were talking about? Well it is not a vid so much, more of an audio clip and I pasted in the clips with the numbers.

thanks guys for the input! :D Keep posting and I'll keep updating the list.

The 05 RSX-S has the Type R exhaust but the 02-04 don't have it. I'm not sure how loud that one is though. All I know is that the 05 exhaust is already very good.
