2nd video sounds like a lawnmower. 1st one I've already seen on YouTube many times.. Tough to choose when 99% of the time it's always taken by a cell phone... With crap quality.
it is pretty tough to get accurate sound, even gopros and dedicated digital cameras end up clipping when they're too close to the exhaust. Drive-by videos are best imo.

WildWill's video seems very accurate though.

Can you post good video? Everything I've heard sounds so ricey sounding... Would like to stray away from that if at all possible. Thanks!
Definitely will...you can also check youtube AubreyChambers has a few posted...aka acbers here on the forum. They are short vids so maybe thats why the request for a "good" video. Im not sure I can fully deliver on the good part, but I'll do my best with this old cellularized telephone. I assume it's gonna be different in person vs a video anyway which is why I didn't base my decision on that alone. :)

Certainly glad you mentioned the drive-by comment which is the one I liked most of the videos I watched on the N1. I would also think the sound from whatever device you're listening to isn't exactly true to life either.

I'm thinking about getting an invidia q300 for my '12 si coupe. The only mod I have so far is a k&n sri. Does anyone have any experience with this exhaust? I have a good idea of what it sounds like but I'm wondering how it performs. How are the hp gains?
I have the exhaust. I had it when I had my ART sri as well. The hp gains aren't too noticeable imo. Ive never dynoed the car so I don't know the numbers, but feeling wise, it didn't show much of a difference. You have all the air going through the sri being restricted by the stock dp and little flow through the exhaust.

As lilwade said, it does shine when paired with the dp cause the flow is unrestricted. You definitely see a huge difference in the feel zone there lol. But still, my car boggles and chokes when I'm taking off or something going through gears. I still need a tune to get the flow moving right so that doesn't happen.

But if you're looking for a performance gain, I highly recommend a dp before the exhaust.

Don't forget the rattle guys! :)
Yep. This too. Q300 rattle is a bitch!!! Especially when I got my dp on, it got worse. So I removed the heat shield which made it even more worse -__- something to take into consideration with the Q300 lmao.

Haha best solution (supposedly) is the torque poly urethane hangers? Can anyone post pics on how it looks like and does it fix the rattle?

I just ordered the q300 for my '12 si coupe. I see pretty much everyone is having issues with rattling and some are even cutting one of the hangers to get rid of the rattling. Is this something I should do right off the rip? I definitely don't want to hear any rattling.

I'd say try it out first. Cause if you don't get rattling off the hop, why modify? Could end up fixing something that you don't even have a problem with lol

Put my N1 on today with the help of a couple other guys. WOW, what a change to the attitude of the Si. I'm very happy with the sound. I can post a vid later but TBH no videos Ive heard really doesn't do the N1 justice. If you're interested in this exhaust at all, try and find someone with one to hear it up close and in person. It sounds much deeper/ lower tone in person. In 1st-2nd is the loudest and even at WOT in say 5th its not even as loud as the lower gears mentioned. That could be due to the wind carrying the sound away more quickly.? Not sure. I took the long way home from my buddies house after install. :) Krewzin around town is the most enjoyable IMO...

Invidia/magnaflow exhaust video

Invidia N1 cat-back exhaust
Magnaflow 4"Round Body Muffler
Stock tip

Here is a short video for anyone interested in what the Si sounds like with a different muffler on a cat-back system, nothing special.

(Sorry for the audio quality, my GoPro's were acting up when I decided to film this)

Not bad.. I'd like to see another video/hear another video :) I'm debating with the Skunk 2 Megapower RR exhaust... It doesn't seem too loud and obnoxious outside and inside the car...
