Default Silencer on a catback system

I found a "Tenrai Catback System" with a silencer on E-bay. Has anyone heard of this manufacturer? They claim to stamp their name on the system. I'm tempted because usually the sound is too loud but this one has a silencer. Is it worth it?

Don't know much about this particular manufacturer, but I did get a magnaflow with a silencer. I took it out and now it's loud as hell, which is what I wanted, but when I tried to put it back in I discovered that the thread inside the muffler had rusted and the screws wouldn't fit. So I'm stuck, and on the streets it's not too bad, but on the freeway while I'm cruisin around trying to listen to my music the damn thing sounds like a big goat behind my car bleating constantly and it's kind of annoying.

Just to let you know.........if you have the silencer in, you don't get the full benefit of the high-flow since it restricts the air flow. (kinda defeats the purpose of the high performance exhaust, unless you only want it for when you race)

Okay, no problem. Thanks. Just wanted to ask before getting into something. If it affects the performance, then I'll keep saving for the greddy or magnaflow. I'm just dying to get a catback system and sometimes i see what seems like a good deal but it's not.

Anyway, thanks for the information. I'm almost there. I have 300 so I'm a little ways of to go.
