Default N1 vs Evo vs Rallispec

Considering one of these exhausts: The Apexi N1, Greddy Evo, and 2.5inch Rallispec. Based on hearing and comparing at LEAST 2 of these please give me your opinion for what is better for what, ex. HP, sound, etc.

In addition, I'm getting mixed info about the rallispec. Stock from the company, what resonator and muffler does it have on it?

THANKS!

i got a stromung because it argubly gives the best performance, has a cool dual tip model, isnt uncontrollably loud, and doesn't draw too much POPO attention

i have the N1 with a header and a random tech cat, it sounds awesome,its a little louder, but loud pipes save lives . i have H&R springs and the car sits pretty low so there are times when the front on the can hits the ground(alley ways, speed bumps) due to its angle. i had a stromung duel tip on the car, it was a better fit and fully stainless.but i still like the sound of the N1 better.

How's the N1 with a silencer? Heard the N1 without it and thought it wasn't too bad. Not as loud as the Blitz.

Consider the greddy evo catback. VERY low noise but still good gains. Im going to purchase one meant for a wrx and modify it to fit my legacy. With TWE headers and a high flow cat I will be very happy.

despite what he said i would recommed AGAINST the evo...they are extremely quiet, and why spend 500 bucks and not even get to hear it?? I have a borla exhaust...not as obtrusive as the n1 in looks and noise....and the borla is a little louder than stromung..plus its cheaper than all of them

AustinSTi: You dont get it. Not everyone wants to HEAR the car. I personally would like the exhaust to be completely silent while gaing in HP over stock.

That way I can hear the real working parts of the car. Most of these aftermarket exhaust are so loud you wouldnt be able to hear the initial failure of a wheel bearing. Or the noise your transmission.

I think the "loudness" of your exhaust is inversely proportional to your penis size. A system with nice sound does NOT need to be loud.

I said nothing in reference to "louder is better" but take it how you want.If he's contemplating buying a N1(extremely loud) or a greddy evo(extremely quiet) he obviously didnt know that he's comparing two opposites. He asked for opinions and we gave them......who the hell cares!!

and that whole penis speech?? ummm I'd like to see you say that to all the brothas drivin there little civics, and see what happens hahha

i went from a stromung to an evo and i absolutely love the evo. It's a little quieter than a stromung, but it's definitely noticeable, and not in the least bit obstrusive. it really is beautiful sounding!

AustinSTi: I probably wouldnt say that to them, unless I had a bunch of freinds with me! Its easy to be rude online becuase for the most part its anonymous. No problem though, just letting my anger out on an inocent bystander

I love my EVO and I can hear it. My intake mostly drones it out though.

Rallispec had two versions of their 2.5" exhaust system I believe. I have one of their earlier models that came without a resonator and has a Apex'i N1 muffler. I think the later ones had Magnaflow mufflers. Not 100% sure on that though. The system is beautiful. Fits perfect, bends are great, tucks up nicely into the bumper and came with all the hardware I needed. Is the N1 loud? Yes! I live it around town, and will make trips a few hours long with it, but if you're going to drive longer than 5hrs, go with the silencer. Which works magic. The exhaust becomes MUCH quieter, while still having the nice deep rumble of our Subarus. I have driven many trips with and without the silencer and can say that it does wonders for your ears. You'll get slightly (1-2mpg) better gas mileage, but the car does feel less responsive to the throttle. Of course it could always be the decreased sound messing with my mind. OVerall I love this exhuast system, was happy to support Rallispec, and have no complaints. I think on my next car though, I would go with something a bit quieter. I've ridden in a WRX with a 3" stromung system, and that seemed just right.

Thanks for all the input. If there's anymore keep em coming.

I asked about the Evo vs. N1 cause I've conflicting info on the Evo (as can also be seen in this thread )

Also asked about the Rallispec cause I was confused about the N1 version and the Magnaflow version. Thanks for clearing that up Nat. Anyone had experience with the Magnaflow one?

I have the magnaflow one. It's absolutely perfect to me. At highway speeds, it's comparable to a stock system. During city driving it's more pronounced, but it's never obnoxious. You can also control the sound with your driving. Once you're used to it, you can modulate the noise.

I recently installed borla headers, too. IMO, it sounds awesome. Others have told me the same thing. I'm not some kid that wants the loudest thing on the block. I mean, I'm listening to NPR most of the time in my car! But I can appreciate a good sounding engine. I'd recommend the rallispec without any reservations.

Plus, it's all stainless!
