wolfy47 is cool... so far.
i apologize reading just owned me when you said "OBX and 'Tsudo both make SP2 style mufflers for under $100." thought you wrote they are $100

$200 bucks for a magnaflow muffler though??...i got mine ordered brand new in box with warrenty card, sticker, and everything to a local shop and installed with a tip along with a 22 inch no name resonator (also installed) for $100 out the door

so when you come up with $200 bucks i really dont know what you are talking about

I thank you all for your suggestions. Im looking forward towards a magnaflow more but a friend of mine told me today that SRS from ebay is a decent brand? Sometimes I just cant trust ebay so who knows. Im skeptical on OBX in a way, haven't heard too much from them.

I could afford an apexi but sheesh so much money for just an exhaust system but I'll do what i can and what will work best with me also.

OBX is decent never had a issue with anything engine/exhaust related.

That srs is a joke (Mimic name of Rsr which is pricey and way better) it's just the same as most others found on ebay for cheap. Never had a issue with the piping, but if you go this route look into a chambered muffler, OE cat, and decent size resonator.

Ws2 is expensive, but i know yonaka makes a replica (Don't know if they carry it for the cb chassi though), it sounds damn good and is priced at $300'ish.

I myself would rather piece together a setup, i will be doing my celicas here soon.

personally I feel that having a loud muffler is a good thing. Not that resonancy buzzing in the head wierd loud that some cars give off. I was in BB6 with a Tanabe catback and a removed resonator that was the most annoying sound in the cabin ever, even worse was my friends D16A6, that little engine only had a header, test pipe and a fart can OMG that was very unpleasant.

Any way just like people on motorbikes prefer to have the loudest exhaust possible/tolerable, I feel the same way. You are driving a 20 year old car that isnt as safe as every one else, its smaller and more prone to damage in a wreck. So maybe making it alittle louder will help get some attention of other drivers in a good way. Cause you know now a days people have built in navigation MP3/Movie players built in the car to disctract them not to mention the people that always talk on the phone or worse text and drive, get blow jobs hand jobs you know distractions.

When getting an exhaust, is it important to have a better engine that's not stock? everything under my 93 lx's hood is completely stock, and I don't want it to sound terrible.

The only mods that have a large effect on how your car sounds is mods to the exhaust and the intake. Iabs, Itbs, turbo, cams and so on will make the car sound diffrent too but until you get pretty serious with engine mods two cars, one with a few engine mods and one stock with the same exhausts will sound the same or really close.


To the op choosing the ebay srs exhaust over the OBX for quality reasons isnt a good chioce. Its your car an its just my opinion. My .2cents

At least he can still have a good muffler and resonator welded on to the catback once he discovers that the ones on the "SRS" are a POS. Itll just cost more than it should have.
