Default any have IE exhaust?

I just found one on local craigs list, and was wondering if any one had any opinions on it.
I could only find 3 crappy videos of it on youtube....
how does it compare to a one ball, drone, tone?

guy has it listed used for 300, but i bet i could get it for 200. 300 is only 40 bucks cheaper than new...

I tried to look for info on these a few months ago and didn't have much luck. Their pricing raises an eyebrow as to their possible quality.

I have found some talk about it on nam, and they all seem to say that the quality is good but the tips suck. but thats fine with me, as long as it sounds good.

That's about it, the tips temper oddly as the flow (and thus heat) is not balanced. Okay tone from what I remember - if you can find a video/sound clip of a Dinan can that will be akin to what the IE sounds like as it was a similar single can setup.

I think somebody here had one... Can't remember for sure though.

humm he is asking 300, sold his mini and has the exhaust sitting in the garage.

would it be rude if i offered 150 plus he meets me half way( Im in Houston and he is damn near San Antonio)

me driving to san antonio would be around 100 bucks in gas..

Yep I would think so but who knows what the seller would feel.. lol
If it will cost you 100 bucks in gas only, then might as well just get that bastard shipped
Anyways, about the IE exhaust, I have heard it in person one time at a meet and it sounded pretty similar to alta or minspeed exhaust (discontinued). Not obnoxiously loud but not too quite either.

$200 seems fair. They are only $340 brand new.

He said 300 was his shipped price, and pick up was 250. Then before I responded he said 200 and it's yours.
