I am looking for a new muffler/pipe for my future 2000 ZX3, but I don't want something that will make that loud "fffffrrrrrrrrrrrrrrppppppppp" crap "look at me race you" sound. I wan't something that sounds growl and kinda scary almost when you step on it to go alongside the death metal my car will be bumping.

Anyone got some good recomendations, along with a place to buy it online?

Thanks

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yup, that only thing you'll get out of the i4 is a crappy sound. You'll need a flat 4 or a V8 or something like that to make a nasty growl. The quietest exhausts are the apexi ws and focus sport. That might be the best option.

GOOD LORD! just hope there isnt a cop with a headache around cause you'll be pulled over in a second! (but thats moreso from the race header like dj said) the borla alone sounds great, but the Bosal is by far the smoothest sounding setup I've heard

Magnaflow + FS Race Header = Loud and middle to high tone

Borla + FC Race Header = Loud and Low to middle tone

. But yes. You will be cop bait with either choice.

You have a 4 cyl. under your hood just like them Honda's. You can't help it. If you had a V8 or V6 under the hood then you'll have that "growling" sound.

I just bought a APEXI exhaust system
for my car and it has a calm quite grawl at idle and at hight rpm's it sounds great. I know how you feel about those mufflers that sound like a fart. That is what I did not want. Mine exhaust came from Options Auto Salon they are in some of the magazines like HCI or on line. They are like Nopi.

I'm running the Bosal cat back and it sounds nothing like them bees in a coffee can exhausts. It has a very nice growl in idle and sounds mean at the mid range. My $.02
