I got a S2, 2009, Im posting here cause I think I got better chances of getting feed back to know from personal opinion what would be my best option.
what would be the best choice? is the raspiness going to be felt on both at a same level? loudness difference? if any one has more info on these mid pipes, Ive seach around but had not found any info, the cat back isnt even listed in the exhaust summary

I have the corksport single and like it a lot; however, I have not owned any other one so I cannot really comment on any comparison. Just as an aside, I noticed a rattle of some sort in the resonator after a few thousand miles. I have never taken it off to figure it out but the car is raced so it may be that sort of "heavy use" that has caused it.
I have had the Corksport dual catback on my car for 6 yrs. This is mated to the oem midpipe. I don't know if I want to replace that. I wouldn't want to increase the exhaust volume any more. I take the car on long trips. Anything more would be tiring. It is almost halve the weight of the oem catback system.

alright thanks for your feed back, Im getting the cat bakc for sure, for the mid pipe, Ill try the single resonated, if I dont like I can always try to sell it localy, not much rx-8 parts available where im from so shouldnt be that hard especialy without e-tests in Quebec.
I'm also interested in finding out the difference. Right now I have the Corksport catback and I love it, but just like al said anything louder would be annoying on the freeway. On the Corksport website they list the decibel readings of both race pipes. If I recall correctly I think the numerical difference is small.
Edit: The dual resonated pipe is 2 dB quieter than the single res when free revving according to their website
