Has anyone gone with the a universal exhaust/ muffler? I see the Greddy Exhaust tip go for about $150 and the HKS for about $250.. debating if I should go with this or try out a eBay universal N1 style. I've considered the Tork muffler delete but I would like to try something different.

My favorite was the Greddy evo exhaust... But that can is HUGE... Would look cheesy under the car lol

Keep me posted, I always preferred magnaflow over anything else.

I went ahead and ordered the Greddy Evolution RS Muffler. I should have it by next Friday and hopefully installed by the weekend.

Nice, please make a video of that when you hook it up. What I know about greddy is they sound very deep and muffled on turbo cars. I had a dual muffler setup similar to that on my 350z. If you wanna hear it, check out my video with the black z. My other concern is the muffler is not small, so it'll end up hanging low on this car. I suggest painting it black and ask the shop to tighten the piping hangers so they sit closer to frame. Also get stronger additional hangers, otherwise this muffler will shake like crazy.

thanks for the heads up!! can you attach the video link here? also, I don't want it too loud its just the stock exhaust is too quiet. deeper tone is what I am going for and if its slightly muffled on the Elantra Sport even better! it will be some what quiet and deep but definitely louder than the stock exhaust.


I will post video when the exhaust is installed.

You can find my video on my YouTube channel, it's theshaddix. Don't want to post it here as it's not relevant to the elantra forum. That car had a twin turbo kit. The exhaust came with silencer plugs too. Without them the sound was too loud. I ended up drilling the plugs and found a happy medium. But overall the exhaust sounded great. Then again it was a v6 with two mufflers.

I was waiting for someone to do this before I did... I am very interested in seeing how this will fit with the bumper... I dont like the look when it hangs down to low... I wonder if they can get it tucked up in there... If they can't there is another way, just not sure how ascetic it would look...

Here is what it looks like under the car.




You can see - not a whole lot of space. That big greddy can will most likely only fit at an angle so it can still connect to the stock piping (where the flange is). The problem with that is that the tip of that muffler can't be re-aligned, so you'll end up with the tip tilted upwards and to the side, kind of like this http://www.modifiedplanet.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/car-photo-black-1995-toyota-supra-turbo-wide-body-apexi-gt-spec-exhaust.jpg


Unless they can somehow bend the piping and have the muffler sit straight. Nevertheless, when you're at the shop, be sure to overlook what they are doing. You don't want your car to look like that supra because it won't look good on this car. If they can't fit it properly, might as well not do it. Or ask if they can cut the tip off and add a Y pipe with custom tips. This way they can position the muffler better and the tips will fill in that bumper cutout.

Oh that fits! But to be honest, the tip just does not fit in. You have a square-ish cutout and a big round tip. This is when I think you start to degrade the look of the car.
