Look for something with a straight through design and a perforated core for performance. Apexi N1 and Magnaflow to name two.

attaching hangers?

i've purchased a Tanabe exhaust and it doesnt fit. the diameter of the pipe is 1.25"(stock pipe diameter, i think) and the tanabe pipe is 2". Is there anyway i can install this exhaust? And, how to you attach hangers to the tanabe exhaust???

you got to do the custom 2 inch piping. that is why it does not fit.

the hangars let the muffler shop take care of that. they will do everything they can to make it hang on there and fit. or at least they should.

I recommend DRAGUNFIRE muffler. it is VERY nice sound and design is nice.

pm or email me for the price and pix

Future plans?

Dont toss out an open ended question without explaining what you are looking for! Many different exhausts will fit the B14, But we have no idea what your goals are (SHOW?RACE?STREET?) a break down of exhaust would give you.

(SHOW)
Ehaust from the axle back with stock piping,

-round=RICEY
-Oval=CLEAN

Performance,

(All Motor)
No more than 2" pipeing with no cat, (if you can getaway with it) or a high flow with a resinator and and oval exhaust.

(NOS)
2" pipeing from the cat back any freeflow exhaust will work.

(TURBO)
2.5-3" from the header to a flex sleave, to a free flow or no cat (DEPENDING ON HOW STRICKT THE COPS ARE) With any (PREF Magnaflow) exhaust....

I have waisted money trying to figure out what would work best and you can make any setup work depending on how quite you want the car to be and the Future of the car. So many options, DET, Turbo, NOS, All motor?

i was thinkin about getting 3- 2inch mandrel u bends and taking it to the shop and getting a custom exhaust (CAT-BACK) with an apexi N1 style universal muffler. apexi N1 is a straight through muffler and with mandrel bent cat back piping is an extra bonus.....down with crush bends and get mandrel bent piping if anything...courtesy of JC whitney, you should be satisfied then.

ScorchN200SX what would you recommend then for

a 1995 sentra GXE. I want more of a look since I wont be doing cat back or headers. I just want a better muffler. I want something that is as close to stock sounding as possible. I'd like something that doesnt have a huge tip on it maybe 3-3.5" or so max. I also want something that will fit on with no big modification to the tubing under the car.

Any ideas?

Well....

Look through Nopi or any of the sport compact cars and pick out a style you like most likeley oval with a round 3"-4" tip. Shop around your local shops and see what their (Common) Muffler is. Ask what the tone is like when installed and tell them exactly what you just posted.... my first exhaust was just a exactly what we are talking about. I had a muffler shop cutt of the old exhaust and bracket and weld the new one to the factory points right after the factory bend over the rear axle. It is still in use today and sound and looks great on 1CLNB14 ride. You should be able to do everything for around 200$.

yEa what ever you do stay away from the rapsy/farty mufflers. In general not just Honda's but in any car, I hate hearing mufflers that sound like that, gives imports a bad rep....

I have a stillen muffler for that exact car! It is not the farty sound, but a smooth, deep purring hum at low rpm, and a fierce whine at high rpm. The pipe is 2" but bolts on to the stock exhaust piping with NO modifications necessary. I installed mine in like 20 minutes. Has a 4" opening. It is straight through with perforated core design. Stillen says it give like 9-11 hp

I love my Stromung....I would not get anything else unless I was going turbo. Sound is top notch, no rice whine, build quality is by far one of the best on the market, and it is more stealthy than most of the others....but still noticible over stock....check it out.
