I have a 2001 2dr Si coupe, My car is pure stock right now except for a Pioneer HU. I want get a universal muffler, don't have enough money for a cat back system right now, and honestly I just want to have that nice sound. Im looking for something not too expensive with a nice deep tuned sound, I dont want it sound pure rice. Im in Canada so if you know canadian prices that would help. but I just wondering what brands you guys recommend.

Thanks!!!

go to ebay...carbon fiber ones are good...it will give you that low deep throaty sound rather than the "ricey" sound

apexi n1 unversial n/a muffler
how about the hks rear section? $300 for an axel back.


muffler = 100-$150
labor for welding = $30-50?

spend few more bucks, not only will you get a nicer sound, but a sexy exhaust that will hold its resell value AND look much better w/ its angle slant.

if u look around your towns auto shops, you can find one that does work cheap. I had 2.25" pipe from the CAT back done, and a universal muffler all for $176. and 110 of that was the muffler.

if its anything like there truck/mucle mufflers its one of those crappy restricting reflector type mufflers, i mean if you have a hella loud 500ci engine you have no choice but straight through is what you need on a 4 cyl.

i went to a local car shop. I bought a universal muffler and the brand was pilot. I have gotten compliments on how good my exhaust sounds. It sounds nothing like rice. For $120 it is the best deal you can get.

This brings me to another question. What are the signs of a ricey muffler, before you buy it of course?
