Universal Canister and Tip MSRP: $ 225.00
Loading Please Wait...


Description:
The Universal Series exhaust consist of a canister and tip. Available in the popular DUNK, N-1, and RS models, the universal canisters may be welded on to custom piping. This allows an unparalleled degree of flexibility in vehicle applications. Sound levels must be controlled through piping diameter and the effective use of resonators. Consult your local tuner or muffler shop for more information. The optional Super Silencer is also available for 115 mm tip canisters and lowers the output sound by approx. 7 dB.

Review 1 of 12

Price Paid:  $350.00 from Tuner shop

Year / Model Reviewed:
1991 mazda Familia

Strengths:
-Sound (when using ATS or SS silencers)
-Ease of installation
-Doesn't scrape on 20mph or lower dips
-Doesn't corrode as fast as other brands
-Appearance is nice
-Add the ninja-star-like ATS to your N1 and the cops won't bug you as much.

Weaknesses:
-It's a tuner exhaust. cops will bug you.
-annoying without silencer
-if a cop doesn't pull you over, a ricer will tail you.

Summary:
I think it is an amazing muffler. I got the N1 Universal N/A, and the only negative thing about it is that without a silencer, you're begging a cop to pull you over. Then again, that's 99% of all mufflers out there, especially universals modelled after the N1's and Racing Medallions. I recommend a Super-Silencer (which costs a few extra bills) or, if you can, get the Apexi ATS (active tail silencer). It keeps you virtually legal till you floor it, which then opens it up and expels the excess output. It's deep and throaty sound is very nice at low rpms, but when you hit the gas, everyone notices. (which isn't always a good thing).
The only thing better i can think of that could keep the police away is a GReddy full cat system, but you're talking more money out of your pocket. For a mid-range investment, it's the N1 hands-down.

Review 3 of 12 , from Center Point, IA

Price Paid:  $135.00 from Purchased used from

Year / Model Reviewed:
 '94 Tercel, N1 universal N/A 60mm in, 90mm out

Strengths:
Power gains from improved flow. INCREDIBLE sound, I couldn't ask for better! Beautiful looks / high-quality materials. Overall craftsmanship (picture-perfect welds, etc). Just the right size. JDM cachet! :)

Weaknesses:
Can be a bit pricey (luckily I found a like-new used one). Can be a little raspy when cold -- sound improves immediately once warmed up, though. (Okay, I'm stretching here)

Summary:
Wow, this is by far the best muffler I've ever had. I have a 1994 Tercel (don't laugh :) ) with custom-bent 2.25" piping from the flex-pipe back, a high-flow catalytic convertor, and no resonators. Originally, I had a Dynomax Ultra-Flo (because I was on a budget), and I thought it was great. That muffler was NOTHING compared to my N1! The N1 produces noticeably more top-end punch and filled in the midrange a little more, it looks beautiful in all its polished-stainless glory, it's JUST the right size (and not too heavy), and the sound... ah, the sound! VERY deep and bassy at low revs (it has set off a few car alarms inside parkades) -- plus it makes a mean popping/snarling sound at idle. At high revs, it lets out a nice roar... not buzzy or blatty, it actually reminds me of some race cars I've heard. In a nutshell -- very JDM, high quality, great charactersitics!

Similar Products Used:
Dynomax Ultra-Flo -- nice for the price, but way too bulky and heavy... sounded okay, but weak compared to N1... also, not a very good-looking muffler.

Review 4 of 12 , from surrey bc

Price Paid:  $350.00 from bavaria car studio

Year / Model Reviewed:
 93 si n1

Strengths:
price... i got a hookup finish/quality style

Weaknesses:
maybe a little brappy at certain rpms, but i think i can solve that

Summary:
very impressed with the quality and style. i have an intake, header and i got 2 1/4 custom piping to go with it. nice and low, until vtec where its a little brappy, but that is a product of the single cam. maybe later i will try a resonator as i dont have one now.
