i've got a question i saw a dual tip apex cat back system that looked pretty kool my question is how loud is it. I just took off my 5zigen exhuast cuz it was way to loud. I know the Greddy system sounds kool but i dont like the way it looks. Anyone know anything about how loud the apex system is or any other systems that aren't too loud?

there is a sound clip of the apexi duals in the zilvia.net forums, it's either in tech or chat, but it is several (possibly 10?) pages back so you'd have to search for it. from what i've heard though is that the duals and/or the single tip n1's are louder than the 5zigen. both have availabel silencers.

They currently have the PE, which is the round canister (kinda like a Dunk) with a thin walled, slant cut tip, and they offer the MX, which has a standard big, oval canister with the same tip as the PE...

I have the MX...haven't seen many other out there...

Maybe a bad angle, but you get the picture...hehe.

I had them with my KA24E, and they were REALLY loud. I mean hear-me-coming-from-three-blocks-away loud. Now, with the turbo blocking up the flow, the sound is just pure sweet bassy rumble. Personally, I liked the sound even when it was loud, but it seems like that's not what you're looking for. If you want to, the silencers are $45 each, and they are supposed to do a great job. http://www.freshalloy.com/

if ur not planning to keep ur stock exhaust in which case i didnt..i would go with something 50 state like a greddy or hks. if u dont and get an apex, it may be too loud and if u get pulled ove and cited then u got to get the stock exhaust , put it on, get it approved, take it off and put the apex back on. Big mess. Cough up the few extra hundred and get and hks or greddy. i have the hks super dragger on my 95...its kick A. no riceburning effect. very deep and mellow. at high rev it roars! i'm plaesed with it.plus i also have the 50 state certificate on hand in my dash.
just in case the 5 0 wanna harrass my ass. http://www.freshalloy.com/

Greddy's dont look bad...they are awesome looking...take your pick...the SP, MX, PE. All look cool and dont have that loud annoying sound...plus you get quality craftsmanship...I had a GReddy SP on my 240SX and now on my Z I have dual GReddy SP's...I stand by GReddy's exhaust systems...they are good. Don't know any aftermarket exhausts that are quieter w/o silencers.

I like both...initially wanted the SP, but they mailed the MX as a replacement.

But I do thiunk they still offer 2 PE systems...A 60mm one (N/A), and an 80mm one (turbo) - possibly not available in America...?

The 5Zigen Fireball silencer runs about 20.00

From what I've gathered from most of the folks here at FA, the Apexi N1 series (dual and/or single) along with the GT Spec cat-backs are all nice systems, especially for turbo applications. Rust seems to be a factor for some regarding the N1 dual and single systems, but I don't think it could be that bad.

Greddy, 5Zigen, HKS, and Blitz all have nice exhausts as well, so I guess it's all up to preference......duh right? http://www.freshalloy.com/

If all goes well, I'm going to try and get the N1 single myself again within the next couple of months.....along with the silencer just for precautionary measures:)

if you are going turbo id go with the Apex GT spec, it is 3.74" piping http://www.freshalloy.com/ with a muffler angled like the N1. the whole system is polished stainless steel..very nice in my opinion. thats what i have...

I'm wondering what exhaust for the sr would have the best compromise between volume and power? I want a highflow system, but not very loud.

Anyone try the Borla exhaust available through Nissan Motorsports? I'm looking to replace my original on a stock motor.
