I am not sure which one i am going to get so i would like people to voice there opinions here. THANK YOU

Here is the clip for the HKS HiPower on TypeS. it won't melt your bumper unless you have JDM rear lip.

I personally like the HKS exhaust better, N1 is just a little 2 loud for me...

I had Comptech on my RSX-S with Race Header, that was loud.

I have dual HKS Hi Power Titanium's on my G35, not loud at all

HKS isnt extremely loud in the low rpms, but when u start getting up there in rpms, it starts screaming, and u can definitely feel it too, great exhaust i have to highly recomend it!

Btw, like RSX-white said, doesnt burn ur bumper unless u have JDM or maybe some aftermarket bumper.

the n1 is not really that loud on a rsx...but for older civics and integras they scream...i heard the n1 in person and people who have had the n1 said its not too loud not as loud as their friends older civic with an n1 etc. I think the hks is louder but the hks sounds good because its deep and does not give off a raspy sound. hks looks nice with the slight angle and how the tip does not stick out of the rear of your rsx. it tucks right below the bumper and looks really clean. i have the hks now, and i have the apex gt spec before my hks, i know the apex gt spec and apex n1 both just sit straight and the tip sticks out a little bit. i dont think its attractive when a huge exhaust just sits straight and sticks out...the hks doesnt rattle against anything...fitment is 5 out of 5 with the stock oem rear.
