I've put my silencer on today... I was a bit tired of hearing the loud droning of my Apexi N1. I checked on the Apexi website and they say it doesn't impair the car's performance and may improve low end torque on some models.
For my part, I think it reduces the accelerations when through 4.5-5 K RPMs. It's prime at first and then gets sluggish a little bit. Anyways... the real question is: is it going to damage any mechanic component in the long run? Anyone has an idea on this? I mean, it has to create some back pressure; if all that air is usualy drawned out by a huge hole instead of that little peep hole that is left after the silencer is installed.
well theirs no doubt it will create more back pressure! the amount it will, or whether or not its enough to damage anything is hard to say but its either having a loud exhaust the annoys you but knowing your car is safe or putting the silencer one and always having that "is my car going to be ok" question in the back of you mind...
idk how you guys live with loud exhausts, i have been looking at other options and custom made exhaust because i think my borla hush is to loud!
get the greddy evo 2, it is not loud, but still gives the car its nice rumble. That is why i bought it. I did not want the car to be loud. It is still a 3" pipe, but the muffler does not retard the performance
