obx

Did you end up buying the exhaust? I've been thinking about buying one off ebay too and installing a resonator. I've had some ppl tell me that it isnt good to wield things on the car if i plan i driving it for years to come.

edul88 Sorry, it just occurred to me that this is probably a thread for only the obx muffler, but i hope that it was helpful, sorta?

edul88 I bought a twin loop muffler($55), no name, off ebay with a resonated test pipe($35). I just recently had it put on, and damn is it a nice sounding system.

It's real deep, not high pitch. It's that tone that makes people turn around and go "what car is making that??" and never think its ricey. I have already had several people come up and complement me on the car and it's exhaust.

I find it's a lil quiet in the cabin, wish "I" could hear it more but the sound is there. I feel the difference with the smoother airflow through the exhaust, got a lil more low end power thankfully, but you get this from any free-flowing system i guess.

When its on the car, it looks a little too big because of its design, but the 3g ludes have a nice valley where it takes majority of it into the body, but still be able to see the twin loops.

So overall, for what i paid total(105) the twin loop system is amazing, far from my fears of buying from ebay. If the OBX sounds any better, i could see myself buying that one too. So to the OP or anyone thinking of buying one, i highly recommend them from MY experience, they are amazing, and real complement our cars.

JDM23Lude This is exactly what I was looking at getting.

Prudz_lude Installed on my car, vibrant header tri-y, vibrant cat and resonator, obx twin loop, sounds fucking badass! So throaty, no rasp, kind of reminds me of a boxter motor (subaru wrx) and quiet when idle or low speeds. No pain on the ear due to low frequencies either.

ZekeComa Where can I find one of these?

I understand, I misunderstood his post. I though he had the whole Mugen exhaust system that would come with a resonator.

sKetcheD Does the replica match up to the sound of the original of the authentic mugen one?

1SleekWheelman I got no review links, but I can give you my thoughts on it.

It's easy on the ears. 'Nuff said.

Colominicano i have the OBX R muffler and it sounds great.

JFinn Ive got this muffler with a hi flow cat, and two resonators. 2.5 inch piping all the way back. Its a little bit loud for me but not too bad. Its got a good tone and it looks damn good

vtecpower20 I posted a review of mine on PO awhile ago. I'm not going to copy/paste the whole thing here, so here's the link :http://www.preludeonline.com/f60/obx...ctures-252358/

I have the stock piping with the Twin Loop muffler 2.5" to 3.5" tip...I love the sound of it..I am going to get the stock exhaust ripped off and put on a full 2.5" piping for a deeper tone..

Prudz_lude I'll post a review on this muffler in a few weeks hopefully. I just got mine and am just waiting to get it welded up.

Depends what else you plan to get. If you get a header and a resonator, it would sound okay. I have just the piping and the obx muffler and it is raspy, I'm going to get a header, resonator and a vibrant muffler for a deeper tone.
