I was wondering what would be the best application for my 1.6L sentra. I've been looking into a universal muffler and would like some personal recommendations. Ive thought about APEXi or a fake APEXi. Is there going to be any difference in the two?

If you want something already made, get the stromung. I have one and the gain and quality of the piece is really nice. If you want a universal muffler, just get some 2inch pipe to go along with it.

U can go universal but def hav 2 get the 2in pipe. I got a univ. with no pipe and I regret it. Im trying to decide whether to get the 2in pipe with it or save up for the Revolution Muffler and do it with a quality piece....

I really like the Revolution brand.....

I have the Revolution but it's not 2 inch inlet. It's actually 2.5. It sounds really nice. I have an extra one. Brand new in the box. IF you want it. PM me for me info.

check it out, i got a universal Magnaflow with 2" inlet and 3.75" after that. it had a silencer welded in there that narrowed it down to 2" and it made it quiet and pretty nice sounding but I don't like the fact the pipe narrowed down again so much. So i cut the silencer out with a dremel tool and like fifty heavy duty fiberglass reinforced cutters (have you every tried to cut a weld inside a muffler!?!:eek: )

i made my own silencer last night from some 4" stock on the lathe and I'm going to drill and tap 3 set screws at 120 from each other so I can make it stay in the pipe. now the silencer is both removable and 2.25", and I"m going to put a shorter pipe on there so it'll be a bit deeper sounding but no so loud (it's really deep and lout right now!!!)

oh i got a 36" glass pack stuffed in behind the cat too... that helps with the rice man action.

The best complete exhaust system for the GA16, is hands down STROMUNG...!!!

Don't spend $250 for a muffler...save your money and buy a complete cat-back from Stromung
yep totally agree, if you gonan shell out the cash wait and get a whole catback done, that way u will get a power increase and sound

What is the difference in getting a universal muffler and taking it to a shop and letting them make 2.5 inch pipes from the exhaust manafold to the muffler and a catback system?

From the manifold back will delete the cat, which is really bad for the environment, has almost no performance gain, will make your car fail emissions, and will throw a light. A cat-back is, well, from the cat back, keeping the cat in place, which is good.

BTW = 2" seems to be the best diameter for the 1.6l motor, which I'm assuming you have. 2.5" will cause a noticible loss of power in the low-end.

whoa tight work James. So how does the glass pack work? WUt does it do?
i first put on the magnaflow itself for just experimentation sake and it sounded okay but too much like your everyday coffee can exhaust. I went to autozone, bought the glasspack and it made a huge difference (i got 36" glasspack @ 2.25", perforated core). it sounds so much better with it!

btw got the magnaflow used for 40 smackers. was in great shape and it's got that mirror finish too!
