Ok, ive checked out like every muffler/exhaust link in this place and ive found that the best sized muffler is 2.5 inch for our cars.

now the only problem i have is wandering if all u guys mean a 2.5 inlet or outlet.
Coz i was thinking of getting this http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...4506529446&rd=1

It has a 2.5inch in let with a 4inch tip and adjustable silencer.

Wut do u all think, doz tip size matter, or is it just inlet size?

you should try HKS or apexi !

i would love a N1 Apexi but they cost like 500 bucks, all i want to realy know is whether or not tip size matters?

Im trying to stay away from rice, but im pretty sure ill end up getting something similar coz i think the stock muffler looks too small.

go to www.cardomain.com and check out some of the mufflers there...they have some for a lot cheaper than $500, and they are brand name..my friend got a apc muffler from there a little while back for $50, and despite their bad reputation..it sounds pretty good

Yeah I personaly hate bomb exhaust. That says rice right there to me. get a nice muffler then put a nice lil tip on there. My buddy got a magnaflow from jegs.com for like $35 and put it on himself. its only a saturn, but it sounds damn nice.

To answer your inlet/outlet question, in a NA car, a certain level of backpressure needs to exist to draw fuel in for performance. If you have too much, then you will lose power; if lack of, then you'll have power loss also. If your car has a forced induction system, then you wouldn't want backpressure at all. I hope that helps with the whole size things. smile.gif

I am a welder fitter and I build exhaust systems for gm,honda and crystler.The best for your na is a 2.5" if you plan on doing more mods in the future.You will notice some loss of torque down low but you will notice high rpm.What you want is a apexi or a hks dragger.If you cant afford them get a knock off of them on ebay just make sure that it has a 2.5" inlet and dont go bigger that 4" out.The best is apexi N1 there are some good knok offs on ebay!

Cannons are bad...they just scream rice. Like doug said, good muffler, and a good tip.

lol, that'd be very very bad. You would have way to little backpressure. Once, just for ****s and giggles, I actually disconnected my exhaust from the cat back to see what would happen. Although it was absoutley ungodly loud, it had no power below 4000rpms, and even above that the power increase was barely noticable. So with 2.5 in. exhaust I definatley wouldn't recommend leaving it bare.

I thought i posted this yesterday... I have a dual canister design muffler with dual 4.5 inch tips. It looks great, and has a really low grumble at idle. When you get on it, it sounds Really mean. Dual canisters sound nothing like rice. My advice is to go that route.
