the original ones are expensive and made for certain applications..watchout for replicas made from taiwan and malaysia etc. last india started making them too..they are not worth it unless you have serious mods under the hood..unless you buying the replica for just the exhaust note..

I think you are mistaken. A lot of good products come out of taiwan and malaysia too. Although did find out that they are a japanese company. Wonder if n1engineering would sell fake ones. What do you reckon??

And yes they make mufflers too apart from alloys!!

dude the actual muffler by 5zigen is around 15000rs. the cheapest being 10k off an ebay site..ok. i have nothing to say about or against N1 engineering. i personaly have seen mufflers being made with the embossing of your choice on it for 2k-3k...i would appreciate it if you check about the products you wanna buy before jumping to conclusions..5zigen,jun,spoon etc. make mufflers for cars with much bigger engines..they are calculated and made with precision equipment...
check this site out: http://www.5zigenusa.com/

they have magnaflow too........but too expensive for my budget. prices strt at 6000 which is too much.

the muffler gave me 2-5% improvement in throttle response and good sound. Its been 6 months now and the sound is the same. power too remains the same.

pretty affordable for 3 grands !!

talk to them ....they might be able to help u better.



wow u seem like an ad for N1??
and that too first post
anyways can you post a pic for the same?

does the power and sound change over a period of time?

Sound may change due to carbon deposits in the muffler... but never heard of power changing.... wow... if only it did and in a positive way...

u can have the muffler extended till the rear of the car which is the conventional design or have the straight pipe shortened so that the muffler lies exactly in the center of the car.... this way u will have people wondering where your muffler is and also it will sound louder to you as it is nearer to you...

Well i want the sound for the ppl. Usually the music inside my car is loud and i just blot everything coming from the outside.
i believe you have a automech muffler installed? if so how about a picture...?
