I found a Ractive axel-back on eBay that i got a good deal on. The workmanship on the whole thing was very good, it was a simple 10 minute job to swap out the stock - no horror stories about muffler shops & botched jobs - the fit was great.

Sounds low & deep and not too loud.

why do you want something loud?..its cool..but u might get all hassled w/ po po n ****...
and if you have an intake you might get a better sound too...

for the xtra 100 i would jus get apexi
but if u want to save and jus wanna go for look then get ractive.

if you want loud loud

Actually I did it not so much for the look (because it basically looks the same as most other big round pipes sticking out of the *** end of a car) but rather, I wanted to be able to hear what the engine is doing. At the same time I didn't want it so loud that it caused problems with the law so for me it's been an OK choice. Once I get my air intake mod done, this may change...

i finally bought ractive muffler.. and.. after it has been installed...
i kinda.. regreted...
it sounds not bad.. but.. too loud...
if i can go back on time, i will buy n1 for sure...

however, it looks good...
since i got automatic, i give up on performance..

You will not gain/lose any power from switching mufflers, all you will get is a slight change in sound and looks.
