The HKS is only a tail pipe while the JoeZ is a full catback so they can not really be compared
The HKS cost twice as much as the JoeZ
There is not much information on the HKS, only one person on CL has it so there is no mean to compare them

i think whatever exhaust you get, you'll get your moneys worth.

they both sound great!

BUT listening to youtube's video on Joe Z and HKS....HKS is freaking lovely!
I agree... HKS sounds beasty.. like it's going to swallow u whole.. but very pricey... Joe Z i believe is the best bang for the buck... also top notch craftsmanship from what i've seen... couldn't afford either kit, but happy w/ Magnapacks for now...

I love my Borla. Get nothing but compliments, matter of fact I had a cop follow me to a gas station and tell me that it sounded 'Sick'

Joe Z or ISSForge is better. HKS for the price not worth it but if u have the money why not. it does sound nice, now if only they release some dyno numbers cuz they never did release them. just remember the HKS is not a true dual exhaust.

I was running the stock exhaust without secondary cats and no mufflers before. I recently installed the ISS Forged system. It is way louder than my previous set up. Probably due to it being dual all they way through, no resonators and the dual mufflers on each side are straight through. Feels like a good amount of power increase along with the Takeda intake I am running with it!
