haha, I know Ebay Exhaust:eek:hnoes:

We're looking for a new muffler for my girl's 06 EX. I got her an N1 style muffler about 2 years ago and its been on since. sounds pretty damn good for a $24 muffler. ( quiet and mellow and has a nice growl after 3k rpm)
Theres no way we're spending a shitload of money on a catback or full system. only looking for an axle back. ( if greddy made a T-I-C axle back that would be great!)

The N1 I got her and welded on has since become slightly rusty around the edges and the tip. I've been cleaning it with Ardex Metal Mania and it cleans up to a nice chrome again.
We're looking at a new muffler, maybe an axle back..

has anyone ever purchased and installed an axle back from ebay? if so, do you have pics and maybe even a video of how it sounds?

I have an eye on this one.

What's the point? You're just gonna get the same POS you already have on her car now.

Do it right and go buy a real axelback. Tanabe makes a great one and i beleive it's like $360. If you go cheap, you're just gonna get another rusting piece of garbage.

Its not rusting out and its not garbage, still sounds the same and like i said its only slightly rusty around edges and the tip, once i use some polish on it then it shines back up for a few months.

theres no way we're spending $360 on an axleback. and we're not putting a full system on it, its too loud for our liking.
I spent $400 on a full exhaust on my car, longtube header, piping, everything. but im trying to make the most power I can.

If I were building this civic for power and racing it then ya I'd be spending 3-400 on an exhaust to make power.
We're only looking for a more agressive exhaust tone. Im not spending $360 on a muffler to just make a car louder lol

Hell, I say go for it if you don't mind crappy material. Plus you get free stickers, shift knob and hood pins. I personally wouldn't get it but I understand where you're coming from. :thumb:

I've got the full cat back version. The muffler has a removable insert. It is just slightly louder than stock with the insert, from inside the car. I wanted even more sound reduction so I wrapped the insert with steel wool.

Good quality muffler/pipes and for the price I can afford to replace it in 5 years if needed and still have spent LESS money.

remove the muffler, start the car, if you like that sound. Visit a local muffler shop and they can weld up a nice pipe with a quality tip for around 100.00. Even cheaper if you want a less quality muffler tip.

can you send me pictures of your car with the muffler on it?

na not doing that. and if i really wanted to do that I wouldnt be spending $100 to have someone weld on a tip. I own a mig welder and im pretty good at welding.
