    I definitely don't know as much about exhausts for these cars. I do know ARK worked very hard with their 370z exhausts and were one of the top companies that people bought... I do know that their first version CBE did not produce as much power as a few others. They came out with another version later, but i'm not sure of the numbers on that... it was coming out after I sold my 370 and I haven't been back on the site in a long time.

    I wouldn't look for them if you want the max power per $ though.

    I wouldn't worry too much about which catback makes more power, the increase is pretty negligible no matter which one you get. When choosing a catback it's all about what sound you like.

    Yeah, but at the very least you should try to get a 3" exhaust... you will lose at least some power with anything smaller. Most of them are 3" anyway, but just saying.

    Get the nameless with either 4 or 5" mufflers. Its a piece of art.

    ARK on the sedan sounds so sick. Not sure how it sounds on the hatch though.

    which is the most quiet but has a nice deep tone? Actually... if I were to do that I may as well just stick with the OE CBE huh? I know at some point it does become a restriction... but at what power level? My TP tune on the VR dyno says about 305 whp or so... I don't know how accurate that is however. Hard to believe with just a DP, a CAI and stage 2 TP OTS tweaked map.

    i think i'm going to go with the Perrin... looks nice and has the 3'' that I want. Is it too loud or a nice tone?

    I'd differ slightly from what is stated previously - the size isn't going to matter at all. Some people would even argue that 3" might be too large.
