Vibrant Universal Mufflers?

I was reading through one of the car magazines at Books-a-Million and came across this advertisement for vibrant mufflers. I saw this picture and thought it would look good on my car being that I dont want my muffler to be noticed much and I'm tired of my SP.

Does anyone have any experience with this brand of mufflers before? More info can be found on their site www.vibrantperformance.com

i think thrive_808 bought one used from fred casey, but we haven't put it on yet, so i couldn't tell you how it sounds. it looks nice though, and i hear they make a quality product.

Its not loud is it?

I've had the SP on both my sentra's and im just tired of that same old sound. I was hoping this muffler would be pretty quiet.

A buddy of mine owns a speedshop, and he sells Vibrant. He has the 3" black muffler on a shelf right now... I've seen the black ones, and a couple other Vibrant mufflers, and they seem to be good quality. I'd sport one.

It'll probably be a little deeper than the SP, but not near as visually noticeable.

Why not just go Magnaflow with a nice resonator?

They are kinda spendy , esp for a lesser known product ... you can get Apexi mufflers for the same price as there stainless mufflers ....

the vibrant is 100% stainless, it's just been painted hi-temp black and styled like OE.

My current muffler is all stainless, but I taped off the tips and painted the body with BBQ black, and now it stays under the radar, atleast until I start the car

it's not a vibrant, but a $30 ebay muffler that I bought as a "temporary fix". It's still kinda loud though, and does drone on the highway. My old muffler rattled, and I can't stand rattles. I actually have a small video clip of my exhaust, that I could probably post...

I am currently running a Ferarri 575 muffler , It has a vacuum bypass so at idle to 3500 its stock quiet and from 3500 up its Greddy loud , I have it setup with an RPM switch so I can set it loud all the time or quiet all the time or switch at any RPM ....

You may look into factory mufflers , I have had a ton of stock mufflers under my Altima , got tired of the greddy noise all the time ..... Spec-v , WRX etc. all have had different sounds and looks ....The Ferarri setup was just one I found on E-Bay ... both for $100 .... They retail new for over $3000 ...

. I was looking for some type of muffler I could switch quiet to loud easly ..... The bypass also really increases Low and and top end ...cars feels "best of both worlds " Now , Greddy has good topend but loss on the bottom , stock muffler on greddy pipe gave good low but a loss on top .... And it has a nice OE style stainless twin tips , but with a stainless body , a coupld minutes with a polisher and it looks great ....

What if your cruizing down the highway doing like 70 mph 3500+ rpms, is it still gonna be loud? I really dont have a problem with my SP when im just riding around town, its when I hop on the highway when it gets loud.
