Hey guys, I think my muffler is going on my 95 SE-R and I need to replace it. I know there has been a lot of talk about exhaust systems recently, and as much as I want to get a complete system, I dont think I can afford it over everything else right now. So, I guess I am looking for a nice aftermarket performance muffler to bolt up to the stock B-pipe. I hope to eventually do something similar to what Naji did on his website, only I am not as much a fanatic for being quiet. So, what has worked for people? I know those universal mufflers are really hit or miss, and most sound pretty bad and give no performance gain....

just an exhaust? I'd do Stillen or Borla, good sound, little better breathing.

I've been through some exhausts and I like the GReddy/Trust solution. It's been tested as the best overall for normally aspirated SE-Rs, but it's expensive because it is stainless steel from the cat all the way back. My car breathes like a champ (especially since there's no cat on mine, just stainless steel from the head back!)

yeah, Courtesy too. It's similar to the GReddy/Trust solution...

So fork over the $300 for the Courtesy muffler? I plan to complete the system later, but I need a muffler to hold me over right now. I would buy the complete Courtesy system in a heartbeat, but school is almost over which means funds are LOW....but, if that is what needs to be done, i'll go become a plasma or sperm donor or something :).

Also, is the muffler for the classic the same as the muffler for the 200? They look the same, but I was wondering if the measurments were the same. I could just swap a muffler from a classic as a temporary solution.

I an looking for a rear section for my 96 200sx ser also and this what I found.

Landspeed Racing sells a Powercore direct fit stainless steel rear section for $260

also

Moderen Performance sells a vibrant direct fit stainless steel rear section for $240

any coments on either of these mufflers? Is this a good prisc? How is the quality? They are both strait through design. I will be going with the Courtesy B-pipe later.

I do not know about name brands, but here is my guideline for a good muffler:
1. Stainless steel
2. Lifetime warranty
3. Straight trough perforated pipe in the muffler can. Make sure it is NOT louvered or chambered.
4. A stainless steel perforated 3-3.5 inch tip to avoid fix it tickets.
5. Weld the hangers to the rim/seam of the muffler can and not the can itself. welding to the can might cause stress on the can and tear the can at the weld. I know of a list member who tore the muffler can on the Courtesy muffler. It might be that the hangers that are welded to the can caused stress on the can and tore it apart.
