You should get this Borla exhaust. It is a Dual Exhaust 50 State Legal CARB Approved. So you can be louder, but legal. No need to be silly fart-can loud either.

Borla’s high-performance Exhaust System is now available for the 2008 Scion XB! This rear-exit system offers you aggressive motor sport styling with street commanding sound and maximum flow for more power. It has ultra smooth mandrel bends made from T-304 stainless steel and all-welded construction for durability. The angled polished tips add a high quality finishing touch to your xB.

i have a flowmaster under mine too, and i removed my res and its brutally loud. it is very raspy, but kind of fun.. also i did go with the 10 series which as mufflers go its a pretty poor excuse. I have to see about calming the noise down a little it draws a lot of attention and im sure my neighbors dont like me when i come home from work late at night. i would say look into an aero ar25 resonator or something along those lines to cut the noise down a little

this is the latest version of the exhaust, everything from the cat back has been cut out... it is 2.5" pipe back to this poor excuse for a muffler. I have to get myself a resonator soon to cut down on the rasp.

i did this with my crappy digital camera so it wasnt the best sound

I run the Strup Header and Strup Exhaust. It sounds awesome. Not raspy at all. But you can tell it has been changed. I am thinking of changing the scuba tank out. I wont take it out all the way. But maybe do a hi flow cat or something in there. I took the one out of my tC like you guys have done and it was very loud and annoying. Right now I love the way mine sounds. I will see if I can get a sound clip at some point.

I'm looking for an alternative to the Borla set up. I'm a little unsure about spending almost $400 (at Sparks) on a Borla exhaust only to discover that I don't like the sound. Youtube sound clips don't reassure me about how it really sounds in everyday driving. Figure I can get an axle back system from a local muffler shop for less than $400 and if I don't like it I can have them tweak it. Also thinking abouttwin pipes in the center...a little different, but dunno if I can actually do that.

Exhaust pipes out the center would be pretty cool and very easy. There is plenty of room under the rear of the xB to create any kind of exhast setup you want. All they would have to do is custom bend you a rear pipe so that it goes from the main pipe towards the center of the bumper. The difficult part will be finding a way to secure the pipe since the exhaust hangers are on the right side of the vehical. A muffler shop could still probably figure that one out.

In fact these exhaust tips would look awsome coming out the center.

Love the "Double D" exhaust tips...that would clinch the deal if they were stainless. New England winter driving destroys chrome tips in a single season.
