We as 240SX enthusiasts need to know what's what here guys/gals when it comes to the mufflers.
I'd much appreciate it if we could list all the brands possible for S13 - S14 and what kind of price to expect. Also, and most importantly is; what these BIG muffler cans sound like. I don't know about you but if I am going to fork out $500+ for a catback that might add 5-15hp; I FOR SURE want to know what it sounds like.
Another important factor of course is minimal to maximum HP increase.
So if we could be exact in our descriptions and info, then this could turn into a TECH PAGE for us to refere others to, as well as new others.
Thanks for the support.

hey Mr. Rose, I got some movies of my N1 dual exhaust, I mailed it to West and I'm forwarding it to you. The exhaust is in no way raspy, its all bass all the time.

#### twilight your exhaust is hella loud compared to mine!!!! but it sounds pretty good, not &nbsp;like the N1 Dual i heard. (that 240sx was somehow obnoxious and raspy. but oh well)

hmm, maybe it's because of the silencers. I don't have silencers on mine, which is why it's nice and bassy.

I have a race on Teusday, against a 99 accord, check out my thread on freshalloy.com's forums, titled Apexi N1 dual pics. I'll see if I can get a video of it. I'll also give you a 0-60 run. I just figured out my digicam, I have to hold the button down to record longer.

The first movie was the ignition, you should be able to hear it on neutral. Also, when I turn on AC, rpm goes up so the sound is much better.

I will put all this info in the writeups section of my site later today and start the Exhaust sounds library, etc. I have been busy lately <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('>
