Apex Apex'i N1 Universal Muffler on Chevy Aveo 1.6L
I bought this N1 universal due to seeing tons of Exhaust system and muffler replacement videos right here on youtube. I never saw one specifically on a Chevy Aveo, but I had seen demos on other small 4 cylinder cars. I liked what I heard out of the Apex N1 muffler the best so I went ahead and bought one. This is the 90mm or 3.5 inch version and everything else from the muffler forward to the block is still stock. This muffler is nice and deep and installed as a rear muffler replacement. The noise level in the car is quite minimal, but more than stock since these cars have almost NO Exhaust noise from the factory. At idle or on the open road or at cruising RPM you don't really notice much of a cabin difference over stock unless you are really stepping on it. I have heard however if you strip out all of your resonators and converters it can be very loud. The tone you hear on the video is pretty accurate to what you hear in person. I would SERIOUSLY DOUBT that a cop would ever pull you over specifically for this muffler unless you REALLY lay into it right when you are passing one. Even then I doubt he'd have a leg to stand on since any "illegal" Mustang with no converters and an X pipe is probably twice as loud... or ANY HARLEY DAVIDSON is about 3-4 times as loud and way more harsh than the Apex. Word to the wise.. if for some reason you do get pulled over for a moving violation of some sort.. turn the car off before the cop gets to your car... no sense in giving him a reason to mention something about your Exhaust tone. :)

(2007 STI) Apexi (Multi-Function) Turbo Timer Review
A turbo timer is a device designed to
keep an automotive engine running for a pre-specified period of time in
order to automatically execute the cool-down period required to prevent
premature turbo wear and failure. After
a period of driving when a turbocharger
has been working hard, it is important to let the engine run at idle speed
for a period of time, allowing the compressor assembly to cool from the
lower gas temperatures in both the Exhaust and intake tracts. At the same time the
lubricating oil from the engine is able to circulate properly so the
turbine won't burn the lubricating oil that would otherwise be trapped
within the charger with the turbine rotating at high speed. With regard to
modern automotive turbochargers, the
need for a turbo timer can be eliminated
by simply ensuring the car does not produce any 'Boost' (during driving) for several minutes
prior to the ignition being shut off. Most turbo timers are based on digital electronics.
turbo timers can usually be disabled by
an external switch, this is normally done using the handbrake switch, or
using an automatic one.
