it sounds good, but its too expensive.. if you have a tl, just get the resonator and mid muffler removed, a lot of people like the sound you get. if its too raspy, add in a magnaflow resonator, it sounds mint after.

a friend of mine has a 07 TL-S with the ATLP exhaust, and a coldair, his car sounds amazing.

don't cheap out on your acura... just leave it stock if you're gonna modify your midpipe...

it's a catback system for the rdx, it's advantageous in many ways, way better than the stock.

Increase power +15whp avg through rpm range
Better gas mileage, 1-2 mpg increase
Weight reduction
Higher grade material used
Free flowing exhaust
Sportier exhaust note

Sound wise, I heard in forums saying that it sounds a lot smoother than the Infinity System (G35/FX35) and is also very subtle inside the cabin

what do u guys think ?

I'm still saving up for that $1000 ATLP quad for Type-S
Anyone have one on their Type-S so I can hear it in person?

changing exhaust will not get you better mileage...
your car will only run rich if you mod the exhaust system without a tune...

By increasing the exhaust flow, you are effectively allowing the turbo to spool faster and the engine to exhaust waste gas quicker. By doing so, you are putting less "restriction" into the exit path of the head, so your turbo will spool faster, at a lower rpm. By spooling lower, your turbo makes more power at a lower rpm, meaning you don't have to be on the throttle as much to get to the same amount of power to propel you forward.
