With some guidance from youtube and @Bevo Horn I ordered the Sport Exhaust.

I was torn because I wanted a little more sound but didn't want to sound like a bumble bee driving through my neighborhood. :)

I went back and forth between the Sport B0100Q60ST and the B0100Q60S2.

My local dealer would have to order it and they had it for 599.00

This dealer in Texas had it for 511.00 and 35$ to ship :) B0100-Q60ST - INFINITI Sport Exhaust Kit. Motorsport, Engine, Components | CLEAR LAKE INFINITI, HOUSTON TX

Install looks pretty straight forward.

I will post pics and a video when I get it.

Should have got the 2 with the resonators. That exhaust is AMAZING. Just got mine installed. Gives me tears of joy when the RPMs get high.

I was considering that one bit everything I heard said it was barely louder than the stock. I suppose if this is too loud I can always sell it and get the other 😜

Yeah. It has that bellow that you'd expect from a 37 or 370z. The one without the resonators is louder but higher pitched. This one has bass in it's growls.
I just have straight pipes. The first 25 seconds of a cold start is loud AF and vibrates the walls and ceiling of my garage.

So I have it on my RS. During the first 25 seconds of a cold start it's loud AF. Cruising at highway speeds you cannot hear the exhaust over the road noise. If you regularly drive in a lot of stop and go traffic I could see where it might be annoying because it's most noticeable when applying throttle when stopped.

It's not obnoxious like those kids in their Mustangs.

I have it on mine as well, Bevo is spot on. I haven't noticed it being as loud on cold start now that the weather is warmer, plus it pales in comparison to all of the truck exhausts down here in Louisiana. I'm a huge fan of it but I'll likely jump to a FI CBE at some point. A lot of my gearhead buddies all like the sound though, they say it sounds more "stock" than most other aftermarket exhaust setups.

My cold starts are always the same no matter the ambient temperature. It's fairly warm in Houston.

Ok, fast forward to today. I have now installed the Helmholtz and boxed up the Sport again to try and sell it. I think the Helmholtz is the perfect in between for me. Not super loud but not as quiet as the stock. Sounds great at idle, quiet when you need it to be, but sounds great when you get on it.

Who want the sport now? :)

Might be hard to sell using the phrase "too loud for my taste".
