loudest and most exotic sounding are 2 very different things...

Loudest is cheap, get a custom straight pipe and you should be set...

Eissenman is the best sounding, but expensive.

Magnaflow is loud, aggressive, and inexpensive. I wouldn't say it's exotic sounding though...

I know of a local shop that does custom exhausts for Nobles using magnaflow mufflers.

i don't want to do anything custom really.. i really want Eissenman but i was quoted like 2600 for a quad setup.. which is way over my budget.. all i want is something a good amount louder, but not ricey or muscle car sounding.. more exotic i guess.. (the ideal sound is eissenman sound).. do you guys know what is the best setup like that?

You want loud, just put two 90deg bends right off the downpipes

For 2g's not including install.....

If you want the loudest, just get catless DP's and have an exhaust shop run straight pipes all the way back.

It's a very subjective question in which there is no right answer. In my case I'm very happy with UR catted pipes and Renn-Art's catback.

I have to agree with AE if you wanted a full exhaust system, but getting it under $1500 might not be too easy. If you just want mufflers and tips then there are many more options. Of course there is always DIY, like deleting your cats and throwing on a straight pipe system and/or a magna flow muffler. Then again, Magna Flow usually makes it sound like a muscle car.

Can't you just buy the Eissenman mufflers and have a muffler shop run the pipes (versus getting the Eissenman pre-manufactured exhaust system?

I did the same thing with Borla for my 4runner and it was 500 versus 1400 from Borla.

I have the Harman-Motive exhaust and it sounds pretty bad ass IMO.

The only other exhaust I would consider is a fully catless Eisanmann setup.
