NHP Exhaust. What do you think?

Does anyone have the NHP exhaust and if so what do you think of it? It looks really good but I cant judge the sound from the video. Also what do you think of the NHP headers?

I don't have the exhaust and have never heard it in person, but from what I see online, and what I have read, it sounds like a decent setup for the money. some have said it does NOT drone, some say it does, but I suspect if it does, it is on the low/tolerable side.

if I were to get rid of my Pedro exhaust, I think I'd get the NHP system. but $2000 for a entire exhaust is NOT cheap and the reality is, despite what the sites claim, I doubt you'd see much of any power gain from the system.

some where claim these exhausts can actually decrease power...but I'll let the "experts" address that.

I do thin it sounds cool.

FYI - the "coolest" exhaust I have heard, via the internet, is the RUF. I love how this guy's car sounds.

it's 4 minutes of the owner driving around like a complete moron... but it sounds cool. similar to the NHP I think. go to 2:53.... great sounds! at least to me..

I'm running NHP headers with high flow cats and NHP midpipes that delete the rear cats. I traded my old base boxster muffler for a Boxster S muffler. I love it! It's louder and sounds great when the car warms up without being obnoxiously loud. Almost a year with this setup and zero problem. ZERO REGRETS!

That exhaust system is not for the 3.2 boxster S, but rather a 2.7. Notice the absence of the pre-cat.

Unfortunately, that Ruf exhaust is part of a 3.4 engine conversion, not a regular boxster. My 9FF exhaust sounds a lot like it.
