Default Invidia Midpipe or the Megan Racing Res

What are the benefits and the best option besides price?

The Invidia Midpipe ($300) or the Megan Racing Resonator High Flow CAT ($60)?

I have the Greddy EVO 3 cat back exhaust now.

Would this Megan Racing Res work on a 2010 IS250?

Thanks for any advice

Too be honest there no benefit. If you buy the mid pipe it's just modifying your exhaust tone no real HP gain if any 1-2hp if that.

No performance gain really, but I will tell you the beautiful sound I got when I added the Invidia is music to my ears. I just put on my Greddy Spectrum Elite / Invidia Midpipe / Injen Short Ram on Wednesday and you can't wipe the smile off my face.

Personally.....I will never buy another Megan exhaust product again in my life. They might have come a long way but 6 years ago I bought a downpipe from them for my Subaru and there is no way that the welds were not done by a blind man with Parkinsons. You definitely get what you pay for. But that's just me personaly....others may have a different opinion.

Thanks guys, I also have the Injen Short Ram. Its just tough spending another $300 for sound only. I guess it lets me put another decal (Invidia) on my car haha

I had all stock exhaust in my is350....and put an invidia mid pipe(only) with the rest of stock exhaust, noticed a lil more of a (raspy ) sound upon start up....and slightly deeper tone under acceleration, and actually could definitely feel a noticeable increase of TQ on highway acceleration(60 to 80 mph) was much more effortlessly done
