the 5zigen muffler is a racing muffler, you won't get a deep sound with it, if that is what you are looking for. personally i like the style of it, but i don't think i would get one for an accent. go for a dual dtm style they sound good, or a dunk style.

hey if you want loud and buzzy go zigen but if you want something mellow go actechnics, borla, magnaflow. Any of those, we run a actechnics on the accnet and it came with a silencer. Don't go with a dtm, dtms look good on square cars not the accents. Go with a canister you can't go wrong with that. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I have a magnaflow on my Excel, it sounds nice and rumbly at low RPM, but when it gets up it changes a little bit for a louder racy sound.

I've been using Magna Flow products for several years now on different Hyundai's. I like them very much. Not too loud either. If you're looking for a loud muffler they're not a good choice. Its hard to say how much power gain there was, probably between 3-5 hp in upper RPM's. Although I never had them dynoed. They have been dynoed with other vehicles with similar Horsepower as ours and have shown gains of 11 Horsepower. Brullen Mufflers are nice too, but they are way to expensive! Have fun shopping...

Going from point A to point B in a Hyundai! I may be old school, but have been driving Hyundai's for many years!

<b>Now the second thing. </b>

I know you didn't recomend flowmaster?!?
Or do you have a 350 swapped into you Hyundai?

<b>And last but not least</b>

Well since you put the flowmaster on to begin with I feel that you are not lying but just do not know any better. That is ok cause that is what we are here for.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
But I would not suggest you go anywhere and repeate that. You would be lucky to get 5hp and unless you put a full catback in you are lucky if you got any gains.
Sorry but this is the truth. Without a full catback your car probably just sounds faster.

Ive seen Flowmasters on civics and they are loud as f*ck, BTW its NOT going to give you 15-24 hp...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Ehh.. For universal mufflers Apex'i Dunk and the Blitz NUR Spec has a deep low note, HKS Hiper, 5Zigen Fireball and Apex'i N1 are canisters and have a sound like a motorcycle. Hayame makes alot of styles too <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
