A refined level of performance and driveability is available in the MEDALION TOURING.|
The elegant, well defined appearance of MEDALION TOURING is mature, and matches the artistry of a tastefully built, highly tuned machine.
Using the all new 'continuous strand' ADVANTEX packing material technology, MEDALION TOURING achieves extremely high levels of exhaust system efficiency, while maintaining a street driveable, extremely low frequency and deep tone that is well under 93db for discreet sports driving.
This system requires no removeable silencer for under 93db operation at all rpms. The extremely deep, low frequency tone keeps in-cabin noise to a minimum.
The full SUS304 stainless MEDALION TOURING features a slim-line oval canister, and a special dual wall, angle-cut tip. This premium quality system is for sports driving.
Advantex Performance exhaust technology:
Advantex is a highly advanced muffler packing material that greatly excels over other packing material types such as loose packed fiberglass mats and composite cube types. Advantex internal packing material allows the muffler to reduce sound more, with less material, while maintaining extremely high flow characteristics.

Special Dual Wall Angle-Cut Tip:
MEDALION TOURING features a special dual wall, angle-cut tip. While very attractive looking, the dual wall tip has the function of reducing exhaust resonation. As sound travels through exhaust piping, it can begin to resonate. The dual wall design of this tip reduces this effect.
Slim-line Oval Canister with high Ground Clearance:
Because of the new Advantex packing material, the canister size can be much slimmer, weigh less, and reduce sound more than other systems that require large bulky canisters, or multiple sub-mufflers. MEDALION TOURING's slim canister is pleasing to the eye, and is designed to allow for high ground clearance, for lowered vehicles.
Highest Grade SUS304 Construction:
Tanabe was one of the first Japanese aftermarket companies to create full SUS304 stainless steel exhaust systems many years ago. The highest grade SUS304 stainless is used on all systems for maximum durability, as well as light weight material. Our experience in developing SUS304 systems has allowed us to reach a high level of craftsmanship in this field.
Weight Reduction - 1.2mm Thin Wall Piping:
Specially engineered for use on our exhaust systems, a piping wall diameter of 1.2mm was developed, which allowed weight to be significantly reduced, while remaining durable for extended usage. The SUS304 piping also plays a role in sound output, as it reduces resonation and helps our systems produce their trademark low, deep tone.
Weight Reduction - Hollow Exhaust Hanger:
Because every bit of weight savings is beneficial, exhaust hangers have hollow construction to reduce weight.
Weight Reduction - Pressed Flanges:
Further weight reduction is acheived and utilizes through the use of pressed SUS304 exhaust flanges on portions of the exhaust system.
Straightest Form, Mandrel Bent:
Minimizing bends is a goal of each custom built Tanabe exhaust system. The truest form is realized to minimize restrictions and maximize usable power gains. Where necessary, the piping is mandrel bent for improved exhaust flow characteristics.
Streetable System - 93db Compliant, Quality Sound:
Tanabe exhaust systems are well known to have one of the most unique exhaust notes available. A trademark of the Tanabe exhaust system the extremely clean, low, deep tone that is both pleasant and aggressive at all RPM ranges. Designed for motorsports, this exhaust system is also fully streetable and is built to be under 93db when used and installed as a factory replacement exhaust.
Quality Standard - ISO9001 Certified:
Tanabe is the first and only Japanese exhaust manufacturer with a dedicated USA division to have the ISO9001 quality manufacturing certificate . Because of the extreme difficulty to obtain this certification, those who have the Tanabe exhaust system drive knowing they have one of the highest quality, most thoroughly developed systems in the world. Fitment and function are always flawless, and each exhaust is fully supported by the Tanabe USA staff for tech and warranty.
