    the MAIN difference between good performance mufflers and bad ones is sound. the good ones have better sound (low and mellow tone). cheap ones usually sound like a bumble bee..or worse.

    performance-wise there are small differences between them all but no more than 2-3whp. the best performing ones are skunk2 & HKS (based on a comparison test that i saw in a mag).

    also, wrong forum. :moved:

    I have a magnaflow, and it sounds like fucking pure ass. Nice tone until 2800 rpms then its all raspy and shit.

    It made a mild performance difference from my old muffler that sounded like a can of bumble bees but the sound isn't much better.

    The Skunk2 Megapower muffler sound very good, however it is loud. GReddy EVO mufflers sound great, deep and throaty, I have one. I you are looking for subtle styling and a quiet note, I think A'PEXi World Sport would be your best bet. Good luck, they're all good. :D
