apexi n1 250$ should i?

There is a guy near me selling his six month old apexi n1. only about twenty minutes away. it wont come with hangers or gsakets not sure about a silencer. i figure eventually i can get a muffler shop to fab some universal axel backs with my stock exhaust and a ws2 muffler. that why i'l be able to switch emm out relatively easy. Should i get it?

Re: apexi n1 250$ should i?

oh ok you'll be good to go then. its kinda loud, but it has a nice deep sound to it imo. exhausts are like wheels, everybody will think something different about it.

A heads up with the N1 (from a fellow N1 owner)



when you put the N1 in, make sure you either A) get a silencer or B) buy a silencer. In addition to the silencer, make sure you get a resonator put in between the cat and muffler. I'll deepen the sound a lot. After those 2 it sounds awesome. Thats the combo I have and it sounds far from ricey. I hate apexi's without silencers and resonators tho. I would never buy an apexi otherwise.

mine's an apexi, and you said you liked it *sniff sniff*

you need to specify between the brand apex'i and their diff model exhausts.

Re: apexi n1 250$ should i?

Generic N1 isn't as "big". My friend has one on his 4th gen, and he hates the fact that I have a bigger canister. In more ways than one ;). Anyway, I love the way my N1 sounds. However I just recently put in my silencer...And I banged it in there with a 2x4 and rubber mallet... So any ideas on how to get it back out? Lol...

i wouldnt touch it. you pay for what you get. i would bet ya money that the generic doesnt sound anything close to the authentic N1, and will prolly have a real raspy sound to it. not to mention it is not made of the same quality material and has got the same great workmanship as the authentic Apex'i N1 has got.

just for future reference, me and you both talked about this and your muffler actually has no effect on the sound of your exhaust because you have to many god damn holes in it. Your muffler is there for looks. forreal.
