IS exhaust open for suggestions
 
i am looking for a exhaust system that is not quiet but doestnt sound like a weed wacker. i have looked into a few companys. i just want to know what is the best exhaust that is efficient yet afforable. any suggestions would be apreciated.

Go with the new Dezod headers. I have the green style and no muffler. It. Is. Loud.

The Apexi N1 cat-back exhaust has a nice tone. Try searching for examples on YouTube.

I'm originally from Maryland and we have strict emissions. I was thinking about just losing the catalytic converter but living on hilton head we have noise restrictions to a lot of the plantations here. So I was looking for something that sounds tough but isn't to deep that I get complaints.

I'm in Maryland as well (as you can see), so I'm using the Dezod green headers that eliminate the 3rd cat and replace the other two with high-flow cats. No CELs, and it still passes inspection.

I can start my car in the garage at my house in the morning without waking everyone up, it's not bassy/deep. But you can hear it for miles at WOT lol.

What's some rough pricing?

TobiasSing 03-23-14 12:03 PM

Well the headers are like $1300

Id say go with an Apexi N1 catback. stylish but not abnoxious.

TobiasSing 03-23-14 06:43 PM

Yeah if you want an exhaust that is "not obnoxious", then a catback like N1 will get you that. But if you want to be obnoxious, headers will do that lol

I actually took a chance and bought the Manzo catback and couldnt be happier with my choice. Pretty well built esp for the $$. And great tone without being out of hand. I have used Apexi and HKS on other builds and this is on par with them imho both in build quality and sound.

i dont want to be completely obnoxious because this is my daily driven car and my job takes me into different comunities that do not allow to much noise. i would like to eventually get a daily driven car and make this a toy.

TobiasSing 03-26-14 12:25 AM

Yeah I'd start with a full catback then

I just bought a Manzo on ebay. $210 shipped to my door. It has had good reviews on the my.is forum. http://my.is/forums/f88/sportdesign-...inside-503426/

I live in Savannah, you are welcome to hear how mine sounds once i get it installed.

FlapjackIS 03-26-14 10:54 AM

yeah let me know when you have it installed. id like to do some shopping around and im taking all suggestions i can get

NYKnick101 03-26-14 12:23 PM

I think the Apexi WS2 exhaust is the best you can get IMO. Nice tone, not too raspy, but not too deep. Tucks away like OEM so you dot get harassed by police. Full Catback WS2 exhaust are pricey but you can buy the solo muffler and have an exhaust shop do your piping for less than half what a full catback cost.

I am a huge Apexi fan
