Default Enthuza vs FM 3'' Turbo Exhaust

I would like to get a little compare and contrast going on here. I know these exhausts have been talked about before but not quite in the way I am looking for. If you could help I want to know more about each like how loud they are/ what they sound like/ and fit under the car. If you have experience with both please give your opinion on which one is best as well. So far I am having a hard time finding online witch one is louder, how or what they sound like, which offers better flow ect. Even if you only have experience with one please share you experience especially with sound and be as specific as possible.

Thank you!

had both, both were ok, but the "big maggie" 12579 or 12589 that's popular around here beats both hands down.

Would you be able to tell me how the fm and enthuza sounded in comparison as well as the "big maggie"? While i know what people like in sound is subjective i'm more looking for "this one was lounder", "this one was deeper", "this one (blank)". I value opinions as thats how i will make the decision for my exhaust. Thanks!

nope. because it's a stupid waste of time, and your "deeper" could be my "louder" and my "higher pitched" could be your raspy.
on a loudness scale it goes: (loud) enthuza, fm, maggie (quiet)

I wouldent call it a stupid waste of time. If i dident want to hear what people had to say or thought i would have never made a thread because that would of been a stupid waste of time. But thanks anyway, you answered the question of which ones were louder and I couldent find that after searching for quite some time so thanks!

I build exhausts for a living, and this is 110% accurate.

Let me give you an example of why this is silly outside of exhausts.

"Does this taste too spicy to you?"

This is literally what you are asking.

The muffler they put on the enthuza 3" is undersized.

performance difference between the two is probably nil, with maybe the enthuza leading since the in/out of the muffler is better.

It would be nil, my <90DB straight through 3" emissions exhaust performs identically to an open downpipe in repeated tests on multiple cars my my chassis dyno.

I have the FM 3" and it's pretty quiet... a little too quiet for my standards, but I didn't want my neighbors complaining to HOA.

Thanks for all the replies so far! Right now I'm leaning towards the Enthuza for performance/noise and I may save a few $$
