Default Anyone tried the ebay Tsudo exhaust?

Ebay has Tsudo (I figure that's Chinese for "crap") 2.5" stainless catback exhausts for about $220 shipped. Anyone tried these? How does it sound? Fit OK? Fallen apart yet? Or is it a good buy?

Found it. meh. The 4" tip on the 2.25" looks retarded. The N1 style probably won't fit worth **** unless you are into that JDM fanboy stuff.

Other than that, top notch!

OK I'm an idiot. The obnoxious ricer tip I figured I could remove is part of the muffler system. The 2.5" mandrel stainless might be OK or it might be stainless tinfoil. I'm cheap and though I might be able to de-rice it. Looks like enthuza is likely to get my business.

Wise choice. I installed an Enthuza turbo system almost a year ago, and it still looks and sounds like new. Great stuff.

Picks above are from Kuane on this board. He's running a Greddy kit. I'm actually going to buy it from him for cheaper then what he bought it for ($180 delivered) since he found a St. May on ebay.

Build quality is actually very good, 2.5inch. Sound-wise, it's QUIET. I mean, QUIET. Which is what i want.

Do you have to cut the rear skirt for that 4" to fit?

I have an ebay OBX catback and the 4" tip actually fits the hole in the bumper cover perfectly.

Quiet is good. I'm suprised I'm actually liking the pictures. I hate the sound and look of all the Honda Fart Can exhausts. I'm actually back on the fence again.

Ex Honda Man. That's the exact system I'm talking about. Good pic's. You've seen it in action, heard it, seen the fit and quality and you like it! For a stainless 2.5" the price is definetly right. Good to hear the quality is pretty good and they aren't too loud.

Damn. I thought I was going to narrow my shopping down to the enthuza. The extra couple hundred bucks saved would go a long way towards the water/ oil lines and intercooler piping I need.

Yeah Tam, I remember Kuane telling me that the midpipe was 2.25" and the axle back was the only 2.5" part?

Nope, I have one and the midpipe is 2.25" the axle back is 2.5". I love it only because its so quiet decent upgrade from the stock exhaust if you ask me. Made my turbo spool a little sooner. Although, it doesn't fit the best. I took it to an exhaust shop to make it fit nice.

that sucks, if it was 2.5 all the way through that would be a good deal. if you wanted a 2.5 midpipe and had to source one that would put it into enthuza money range
