    Brand and model: Apexi World Sport 1
    Price paid and from where: $170 from a friend.
    Pros: Smaller than the WS2 exhaust, was not looking for a cannon. Deep, low sound and gets better at higher rpms. Feels like my car pulled harder but, that could just be me.
    Cons: Not much except the fact that it was used.
    Final verdict: I don't regret buying it, and it serves its purpose quite well.

    Brand & model: Megan Racing universal muffler
    Price paid and from where: Around $100 dollars, Can't remember exactly.
    Pros: Good deep sound.
    Cons: I have 2.5" pipes from the cat back, no resonators, so it is really loud. It sounded "cool" for the first few months, now I am really tired of the drone in the cabin.
    Final verdict: Like I said, too loud, and gets old after a while. Thinking about replacing it with a Magnaflow muffler/resonator setup.

    I stole pics from Sketch_o5 b/c this is exactly what I have, and I am just too lazy to take my own pics.:lawl:
    I don't have my silencer in, though, as seen in picture 2.

    Dual OBX SP Mufflers $70 each (awesome quality mufflers!) Ebay
    Magnaflow High Flow Cat $70 ebay
    OBX Headers $260 - Racingpartsdirect.com
    2.5" Piping $250 custom done at muffler shop
    No resonators $free :p

    Pros: It sounds really nice, no rasp, a quality deep tone and I am always getting complements on it. My friend who has a Greddy spectrum elite for his g35 is selling it and getting the same set up I have, he put his exhaust on 2 weeks ago. Best sound ever when I start up my car, it gives a great growl!

    Cons: Very loud in the cabin, drones super loud going below 3k rpm. My dad hates it Lmfao.

    Would I do this again? Yes, but I plan on getting a resonators because of the drone below 3k shakes the change in my car.

    Brand & model: Apexi WS1 Catback
    Price paid and from where: $185 from likeawp + $50 for welding on extension piping since it wasn't included.
    Pros: It doesn't have the droning sound, its not to loud not to silent, its just perfect. I'm really happy with this purchase. The tip looks a lot better than the WS2 and the sound is cleaner than the WS2.
    Cons: It had a nasty dent on the muffler, but it didn't affect the performance or sound. Wish the muffler wasn't so big, since I'm SLAMMED it can scrape on freeway jumps or steep driveways which I try not to go on anyway lol.
    Final verdict: I highly recommend the WS1, this is my pride and joy and adds a lot of character to the car. They are extremely rare for the CG, so good luck finding one!

    Brand & model: Apex-i ws1

    Price paid and from where: 140, bought it used from another member

    Pros: deep tone at start up, crisp and quite sound while driving, noticeable gains, dosent scrape with 1-3 ppl in the car.

    Cons: kinda big looking cuz it hangs low even on a stock set up, and with 4 or 5 ppl in the car it defnitly scrapes on freeway jumps, steep curbs/driveways, and speed bumps.

    Final verdict: good muffler for the price,sound,and gains. and there hard to find for the 6thgen so thats a plus too.
