    Well its smog time for me in cali, so im going to finally get rid of my can style muffler for soemthing alitte less loud. My question is what are you guys and girls running for a muffler that gives good performance, but does not sound like a weed wacker on speed. Also what are the best flowing cats out there. I was looking at the car sound ones for the price but im not so sure about them. I want the best flow form the cat i can get while still passing smog.

    If this helps any im running a 1st gen b16 with cai, dc 4-1 header. I have 2.25 piping already just need to put the cat on and a new muffler.

    Thanks For the time.

    i dont know if you can just buy the muffler, but the RS*R ExMag is really nice. not a can, looks damn near stock, and good performance, and not too loud.

    Check out this muffler. I bought the whole exaust system including the high flow cat. And it sounds perfect to me. It is smooth when normal driving and not a higher but a deeper sound when vtec hits.
