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 acheives 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
With an extensive history in developing exhaust systems for race applications in conjunction with feedback from Japan's top race teams, Tanabe exhaust systems achieve a perfect combination of a lightweight free-flowing straight-through design for maximum performance and durability. Constructed entirely of SUS304 stainless steel with the exception of the Ultra Medalion titanium cat-back exhaust system, Tanabe exhaust systems weigh significantly less than factory installed stock exhaust systems by up to ~ 40%. SUS304 stainless steel construction results in the utilization of less material mass over mild steel, producing an exhaust that is lighter, stronger, and resistant to the elements. Each exhaust system is engineered from the catalytic converter to the rear of the vehicle without modification to any emissions equipment.

Advantex Performance Exhaust Technology
Advantex is highly advanced muffler packing material that greatly excels over other packing material types such as loose packed fiberflass mats and composite cube types.
Advanctex internal packing material allows the muffler to reduce sound more, with less material, while maintaining extremely high flow characteristics.
Dual Wall Angle-Cut Tip
While very attractive looking, the dual wall tip has the function of reducing exhaust resonation
Slim-Line Oval Canister with High Ground Clearance
Because of the new Andantex 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 Contruction
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 reduction in weight.
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 useable power gains. Where necessary, the piping is mandrel bent for improved exhaust flow characteristics.
Weight Reduction - 1.2mm Thinwall Piping
Specially engineered for use on Tanabe exhaust systems, a piping wall thickness of 1.2mm was developed, which allows weight to be significantly reduced, while remaining durable for extended useage. 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 hangars have hollow construction to reduce weight.
Weight Reduction - Pressed Flanges
Further weight reduction is achieved and utilized through the use of pressed SUS304 exhaust flanges on portions of the exhaust system.
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.
