yes the muffler is very loud but it's too late since you already bought it. it screams when you really get on it. what motor do you have in the car because that can determine how loud it will be as well. if you have a b series then 2.5 isn't a bad idea but if you have a d series then i wouldn't go any bigger than 2.36 all motor. it looks really good though, it doesn't look like your average fart can.

Muffler

Hi

I have a 1995 Honda Civic LX. I am going to install my performance muffler next week (round shaped). THe concern is that i dont want the muffler to be too loud . Right now i have stock piping with DC Sports headers and a high flow cat. Although the muffler comes with removable silencer i dont personally like that look of it with the silencer. MY question is should i upgrade the piping after the cat to 2 1/4 . Will it be louder after the bigger piping? or should i just weld my muffler with stock piping and stock resonator. How can i minimize the loudness without the silencer on.

Thanks

Adeel

the spoon n1 is pretty damn loud at low rpms... i wish it was quieter

but at high rpm... esp approaching redline it screams and is extra rowdy

Hey man even though you bought it already don't be afraid to return or sell it and get what your looking for. Just buy an Apexi WS2 its nice and quiet with all the peformance benefits! Do it right the first time. I've switched my exhaust 3 times now and I wish I would have just listened to myself the first time.
