EMGO's are the least expensive. I purchased the newbonneville Sprint pipes about 2-years ago and have been very pleased with them. The pipes are EMGO and the mounting brackets are made in England.
I've experienced no problems sofar and in my opinion the mfg of the pipes and chrome job is on par with others I've seen.
I heard some TORs recently and was pleasantly surprised. When we rolled out of the neighborhood, his bike sounded like a traditional Bonnie and mine sounded....... embarrassingly loud.
I used to think the TORs were too quiet, though not what I want, they don't sound bad at all. I am in fear of getting pulled over for my pipes someday; with a set of TORs, I don't think a guy would have to worry about creating TOO MUCH noise. And there's something to be said for that.....
My only complaint about the TORs is the same complaint I have about the stockers: the level attitude of the pipes really accentuates the unsightly kink in the transition from the headers to the mufflers. I find that any pipe with a bit of upsweep looks better than the stock arrangement (assuming that the stock headpipes are retained). I've used both the Thruxton pipes and the BellaCorse Teardrops and liked the look on both. I like your TX mufflers excepting the long hangers (though that is a traditional feature from back in the day).
