    ok guys, ive looked until im blue in the face, so i guess im going to build my own exhaust for my 91 hatch, im older now so i want a quite exhaust note,but i also want it to have enough buzz to tell that its after market,when i mash on it. im thinking about the magnaflow, or the es oval..i dont know enough about either to decide.witch do you guys think.

    I don't really like the magnaflow sound. Why don't you get an HKS? The Hi-power exhaust system they sell sounds really nice and they have a silencer insert for it.

    Ebay exhaust with silencer? They sell some pretty good systems according to the descriptions.

    -stainless steel
    -money back guarantee if it rusts or doesn't fit

    They sell kits like this for around $250 shipped. A little more than your budget lol but hey it's a cat-back. Not sure if they come with silencers, but I've heard them they sound just like the N1 exhaust some of them.

    The Magnaflows sound alright; but the Apexi WS, Greddy Evo2, or the RSR Exmag may be better(quieter, and still have a nice tone when you step on it).

    look for a used worldsport. Best exhaust I think hands down. Stocker look and it has an awesome tone and never gets raspy. I found one for my prelude back in the day for like 180 shipped. Definitely worth every penny.

    OBX Twin-loop? It's a Mugen imitation but a lot of people like the tone. I never heard it in person though.

    Another option is a Vibrant muffler(I think it's just under $100).

    You know the N1 systems are usually loud, right? See, I don't understand the point of buying some loud, cheap catback, and then sticking a plug in it to make it quieter. What's the point of buying a freer-flowing exhaust if you're just going to plug it up? You could just build a system that's quieter but still performs anyway.

    2.25" piping, straight through resonator, and straight through oval-shaped muffler FTW. A Magnaflow, Vibrant, or ES should do the trick just fine. Or, looked for a used Apex'i WS like was suggested.

    Yea good point the silencer would restrict a lot of flow.

    Vibrant ftw. I have a 3" muffler on my hatch, and it sounds amazing. Im sure if it was on a stock pipe exhaust it would be alot less loud.

    I think its the streetpower, its flat black, oval style, and produces a really deep aggressive tone.

    I had a Dynomax Turbo muffler on my b16 CRX and it sounded good. It was pretty quiet but had that nice growl when you really stepped on it.
