Does it add any power or torque to the car? If so, are any dyno results available?

Thanks -- Trevor

It'll look different and sound different, but the restriction of the stock exhaust manifold, cat and scuba tank resonator/cat; along with the stock intake, will not result in any noticeable performance gains.

Is this your first time on the internet? Every forum I visit has a problem with caps. Just obey the rules and you won't have a problem.

ok, i know in a few weeks/months, there will be cheaper prices on the net, but is $440 really worth it for this system? it looks great, don't get me wrong, but seriously... what makes this one better than another one? (i'm not being a smarty pants on this one, i'm really curious if its a personal choice or if there are serious gains, other than cosmetics)

You're definitely paying a premium for the Tanabe name, and the impeccable reputation for quality that goes along with it.

Is the TRD axle-back worth the M.S.R.P. of $469?

Keep in mind that most everything is available at a discount after a short period of time.
For example, Tanabe's NF210 springs listed for $250 M.S.R.P., but when I got mine I paid $162.50; if you're patient I'm sure this will be available cheaper after a little time passes.

I suspect TRD prices tend to be somewhat inflated, but I guess that's the cost of the house marque of excellence :)! I VERY much like my TRD leather shift knob, but it is easily the most expensive of the standard knob options! I personally have a liking for low to modest cost, but the value has to be there, and in the business world -- once the quality has been established, the price tends to creep :)!

From what I read, the Tanabe Medallion axleback provides a premium quality sound and appearance. I could easily be a buyer if I'd reason to believe it also delivers in low to mid torque. However, I notice their write up emphasizes sound, appearance, and quality -- any performance improvement over stock gets little to no mention. To each there own, but I consider the price to be awfully high if all it provides is "impress your friends" value :( (hence my above question!) Still, this seems to be a world were appearance and sound means more than street performance. That's fine, but it has limited appeal for my dollars!

PS. My big splurge was the rear spoiler -- a crazy expense at $420 installed with my xB purchase, but that's the whimsy of personal taste coming to play :)!

this is the one for me if it also offer performance benefits. Had one on my Accord that was not only beautiful but it offered performance gains too. So what are the hp tq numbers and I realize they won't be that high because of the rest of the system?

honestly you probably arent going to see any performance gains with this much like the TRD.. thats cause the hideously restrictive cat/resonator under the car and the narrow piping leading up to the axle-backs..

my guess is with headers, high flow cat and resonator, new piping, and any choice of axle-back would net about 15hp

fuqua

my thoughts too. I am planning on that route of headers, high flow cat and resonator, new piping.

Reviving it from the dead.

I have the Medallion on my G37 and loved it, now I'm going to get the Medallion for the xB. I assume this system for the 08 will work on a 2010? They didn't have any major changes inbetween that time right?
