most definitely getting a dunk... but i'm scared!

i don't want it to be too loud... i have an auto, so i know that since the computer keeps it at the lower rpm's, it won't be as loud as a stick... but how loud is it?

am i gonna be as loud as those civics i battle in traffic everyday? will it be a low tone?

please only rate this muffler as this is the one i have a deal on...

THANX in advance!! :)

Altimuh. I had this muffler before I crashed my car. Let me tell you this was my absolute favorite part of my car. The sound was tight as hell. It sounded nice while inside but I really did not realize how much I liked it till I got my buddy to give my car a couple rips up and down my street at full thottle. It sounded INSANE. I just kept gettin him to go up and down my street so I could hear the beautiful howl it let loose. Oh yea I had an auto too. Plus the thing looks bad ass. Good fuckin choice. When ever I see a DUNK I want my ride back.

In general APEX mufflers are LOUD. If you like that low deep rumble, then get one. You won't sound like the swarm of bee Civic's. But they are loud... ;)

if you are just going to put the dunk on and not get the cat-back piping you have absolutely nothing to worry about. The resonator will take care of most the noise. If you get the cat back piping sure the noise will definitely increase but it isnt a raspy loud sound and at idle or cruising speed it is just a nice low hum. trust me, there are much louder than the dunk, i would reccomend it. especially if you can get a good deal on it.

it should make the tone DEFINITELY deeper

and it shoulf free up the breathing of the engine = more hp if you have other mods

without the piping i would say a 1 to 2 hp increase, if that. with the piping maybe 4 or 5. the sound will be deeper and it won't be too loud. You could always opt for piping after the resonator which would be a little of both worlds, as far as quietness and performance. and yes the intake will help but if you are looking for performance, you would definitely want the cat back piping, an intake, a header, and a high flow cat. that would complete the aspiration side of the performance.
