Default Yonaka (WS2 Knockoff) exhaust review? (How quiet?)

I need a new exhaust for my '94 Si Civic, the car is all bone stock, its my daily driver, so I dont really mod it at all just keep good maintenance (k&n, NGK, new brakes/shocks, etc...).

I need a new exhaust for it, because the OEM stock one is rusted to the point of no repair. But I want a very quiet exhaust, and I dont want to spend alot of money.

My options are:
1) Buy a new OEM (walker) exhaust from parts shop: $265. And then just have a stock exhaust that will rust in a couple of years.
or
2) Buy this stainless steel WS2 knockoff exhaust from Yonaka for $255 shipped. But I dont want it to be loud at all.

I know I can find videos of the exhaust, but I havent found any yet that are on an otherwise stock car. I have stock intake with silencer, stock exhaust manifold, stock catalytic converter, etc...

Anybody use this exhaust on a stock Civic, or have any idea how loud compared to the OEM exhaust this piece is?

Thanks in advance,
-Kyle

How can someone TELL you how quiet something is? You know that's pretty much impossible especially since one man's quiet is another man's "loud as hell".

Have you tried checking out clips on Youtube?

Dont know how quiet it is as that is relative but I can tell you they are in high demand and all of our customers we have sold them too have loved them.

Aren't these all backordered? That was the rumor anyway.

Regardless of where, I heard these were backordered. Most of the Ebay sellers are drop-shippers and don't have them in stock.
