HKS HI-POWER

I'm running the HKS on my 91' and it's awsome! Great deep tone with gutted cat, you won't regret!

i run an HKS hiper with gutted cat and it sounds mean. not too loud BUT the canister is a cop magnet.i just got a popped for it. my buddy has got the N1 dual on his s14 and it's only a little more quiet but that's cuz it's a S14 (two cat's) and mine is gutted.

depends on the state and how strict the emissions laws are. it is illegal if you get caught with it, but if you just hollow out the crap on the inside it'll usually pass visual.

I'm seriously lovin my Apexi Dual. Each can is a smaller than one giant one, so it looks a LITTLE bit less noticable. I love the sound of em too, real throaty and low.
