Dont have dynos but i have owned all three metioned: js 70rs, hks single, and evs single. When i tuned with the js (with a supercharger), tuner told me to get a more “opened” exhaust. Thats what made me get the hks. Unfortunately didnt get to retune but i think the tuner is right and wouldve made a diference. I am currently using the evs, because as mentioned above, the hks was a bit louder. I felt it had a bit more drone tbh. With the evs, its much quieter at idle but really opens up nicely when you step on it. Currently i am running the evs catback with evs hfc with hks headers with the hks sc lol.

now with all that said, i do believe if you go with the hks, you will have more gains becaue it is a more bigger and free flowing exhaust. I dont think there is a substantial difference in weight between the exhausts so i wouldnt say that should play any factors. Hope i could add some help!

Could you describe the tonal differences between the J's and the HKS exhausts?

I want to say the js and hks and similar where they idle pretty deep and loud (not obnoxiously), and when you open up they are just loud. Drone is evident but i wouldnt say its unbearable

on the other hand, the evs exhaust has minima to mo drone (similar to a greddy sp/se, and is pretty quiet at idle. When you open it up, it opens up and has a nice throaty sound to it, imo. But of course every one will have their own opinions with the different exhausts

Thanks for the feedback especially between the J's and HKS systems.

I was going to say look into the Berk catback since it is also a light, cheap, and not insanely loud single as I was in a similar situation and ordered one, but I just got an email stating that Berk is backordered for 2-3 months right now.

Appreciate the feedback on the EVS exhaust. Now that the Greddy SE is discontinued, we might be stuck with the EVS for this type of sound, without paying the $ for an amuse exhaust. I wish it fit better with the AP2 bumper, only reason I haven't pulled the trigger.

Speaking of fitting better with the AP2 bumper, the Spoon N1 single makes an awesome sound but the tip is SO small...it doesn't nearly fill the hole in the AP2 bumper especially enough. That and they only produce it in 60mm piping which is great for NA but not so great for boost. I'd prefer if they offered a 70mm option as well. I'm really keen on the Spoon exhaust but would most probably go for the HKS Hi Power single as it fills all those requirements for me (sound, size, etc)

It looks significantly louder than anything mentioned in this far so far

I just saw this right now. Sounds like it's gonna be louder than the HKS exhaust. As a matter of fact it's basically an HKS clone. At that point I would rather buy the HKS. The only real benefit of buying this exhaust is probably the fact that you can buy their step up 3 inch hfc at a discounted price of you buy the exhaust. I would still love to hear it in person and see dyno figures.
