exhaust brand question...

Just wanted to know if anyone is familiar with tht brand "JIC Magic Exhaust" They seem to be very proud of their exhaust, but I have never heard of them until recently. I want to know if anyone as heard good things about them or know first hand if they are worth what they are asking for the exhaust system. Also, I'm trying to figure out why there are three different styles of the same JIC exhaust and why the prices between them are so far apart. The size is all 80mm. I like the way the tips are styled, but don't want to be the one to cough up that kind of money for a real crappy exhaust system. Any advice would be appriciated. anyone can check them out...
optionimports.com has some really good deals on just about anything you could want for the 240. Just can't decide if I want to go with a really advertised exhaust company, or go for the less known, posibly slightly beter exhaust system. Also, I am looking for a quiet as possible 80mm exhaust, any ideas?

personally, I've heard nothing but good things about JIC products. The discrepancy between the exhaust prices is probably due to building materials. I believe JIC makes a titanium exhaust that is supposed to be the absolute bomb diggity.

JIC is one of the better brands out there.

I'd go for it, if it was the right price.

are you serious, they don't even use their own exhaust on their car! that can't be good. do you have any recomendations? i was leaning towards greddy just because i plan on using greddy intercooler, down pipe, etc. but i wasn't sure because back in my civic rice burning days i wasn't satisfied with the performance, however out of the three exhaust i had on the car, it did sound the best. i was thinking about running 2.5 inch exhaust and keeping the boost stock for now, so i don't think 3 inch exhaust is all that important right now. let me know what you think. what it all comes down to really is sound, because a bigger more free flowing exhaust is all gonna perform fairly close to each other hp wise.

Greddy is always a good choice, personaly i like Blitz and HKS, go to www.projectnissan.com best website for all 240 after market parts. and just cause you get some greddy parts doesnt mean that you shouldnt get another brands parts to. 2cents

Greddys got a nice deep tone to them, not too loud. To me those are the best.
