New Apex\'i review

Just had the Apex'i world sport installed today here are some things i noticed:
*Beautiful Piping (titanium coating is awesome!)
*Welds and Bends are all smooth and perfect
*Extremely solid construction (reinforcements)
*Long lasting system
*Tip fits bumper perfectly
*Sound is so smooth and powerful
*No "farting" noise upon deceleration
*Great fit (new gasket for flex pipe even!)
*No drone on the highway at all
*From inside the cabin sounds almost like stock

Alright there's my praise for the apex'i! I'll likely have some pictures and maybe a sound clip for people...
Oh and anyone else know what the piping size on this bad boy is? It's bigger than the bosal's 2.25, it may be 2.5 inch even!

awsome! Im not sure on the size pipe, but if its a 2.5in thats pretty big and will hurt performance unless your boosting...the sound does kick ass though...and photos?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Photos are coming....as far as power loss goes the apex'i ws is all about their strong mid range so I doubt there's any losses anywhere in the curve. It surely doesnt feel any different than the bosal according to the butt dyno, so whatever.

It's probably like 2.4inches. Usually Apexi uses Milimeters as they measurement, so I think it's like 60mm, so about 2.4 inches!?

That's sweet that they make the WS for the focus now!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">My nopi total ended up being right around $450 i had a $10 coupon, and shipping was pretty cheap. I've always like nopi a lot too, it's just usually there too expensive. This time around they were either the cheapest, or close to the cheapest.

ruggedman: Are you going to be able to get a sound clip and pics? I would love to hear it and see it as well. The apex'i is one of the exhaust systems i am considering and i havent seen or heard that system actually installed yet.

Wow...so there isnt a muffler at the end of the system. It has a similar layout as the magnaflow and others like that. I was under the impression that it was like the HKS...piping and a muffler at the end. Very interesting!! But looks great. Me likes.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Nope no rear muffler. Its just got a HUGE resonator in the first section, then a big paint can size muffler. I like it too

I too have the APEXi and I couldn't be more happy! Great choice man. You should hear what it sounds like when you put a venom 400 chip in there. OOOOOWEEEEEE. Nice and deep and extremely smooth at low RPM's but when you stomp on it...People definately know you're coming.

Re: New Apex\'i review

So, what happened to the sound clip!?
would like to hear it, thanks in advance
by the way, how is you low end, exhaust seems to be a bit large for a 2.0 litre engine
I think 2, or 2.25 inches is more appropriate
well, waiting for that saound clip!
