Arrow Suggestions on good name brand exhausts?

Whats up? I ride a 93 Accord ex 2dr. Im looking into getting a catback that provides deep tone hum sound and durable quality ( Not no RiceBurner or anything ). I know Magnaflow is good but what about OBX R racing? SRS? Megan Racing? Apexi? etc. Provide your suggestions and experiences.

Car Info: Pretty much under hood OEM stock for now. Im pretty tight on money so something good worth for my money.


Thanks !

Everything you listed is rice burner status unless you get Apexi WS2. I bought mine for 620 + shipping. Sounds incredible, super quite.

OBX Racing Sports dual DTM tip exhaust muffler, full ExMag RS*R catback or Apexi WS2 if you have a bit more to spend. Apexi also makes silencers for cofee can exhausts.

@Mozza, Honestly Im confused on what I want to get, so im not really sure. I also dont want to just pour a bucket full of money on just an exhaust even though there good brand quality Ex: Apexi. so far ; Possibly a 2.5" to 3 in"

@Wild & domesticated, Thanks for your suggestions !

With an exhaust you get what you pay for. I held out for over year to build mine so I could save up for the right stuff. I now have the rarest header you can find with one of the top cat backs to match. If you can't afford it wait.

Its not Apexi or nothing and a $600 exhaust system isnt the only way to go.

The quality might be a bit better on the high end exhaust systems but why pay more for your exhaust than most people pay for their car?

If you want/like the look of an Apexi WS2, OBX makes a good knock off. I have it on my 91EX. I bought an OBX WS2 off ebay and bought an ebay catback. $125 for the catback, $60 for the muffler and $50 labor to have the OBX muffler put on the ebay catback and installed on the car.

From what you said your looking for I take it you want a louder exhaust, good sound, not a ricer muffler and not $600. The Apexi WS2 is pretty quiet IMO. The OBX looks just like the Apexi WS2, its a little louder and is ALOT cheaper.

OBX products all have a lifetime warranty

EDIT: Here is my OBX WS2 before i had it installed.


After:

OBX and 'Tsudo both make SP2 style mufflers for under $100.

'Tsudo: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tsudo-Univer...9faf90&vxp=mtr

OBX: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBX-2-5-SP-S...6ece2f&vxp=mtr

EDIT: Say you get a OBX WS2 and its to loud. You dont like it. Go buy a resonator to replace the one that came with the generic catback. Again, you dont have to spend an arm and a leg.

OBX Resonator to go with your OBX muffler: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBX-18-0-Uni...b0b256&vxp=mtr

My friend has that resonator on his generic catback. It took away alot of the rasp of his fart can muffler and made it significantly quieter.

i recommend spin tech, they only make mufflers but my cammed f22 sounded like a beast.

now that is on my friend's ranger and it sound a lot more "racey" than his flow master.

i also put a spintech on my subaru and it sounds super deep, even more deep than most sti's but it resonated so bad that i needed to install another resonator and a quarter wave resonator.

my vote goes towards magnaflow hands down

why are you going to pay a bit more for a cheap obx muffler where the packing inside is going to burn out in a year or 2 when you can get a good quality magnaflow for cheaper

OBX isnt low quality. There are members on here who have used them for years and havent had any problems. I have one on my Integra and ive had it for over 3 years and it doesn't sound any diffrent than the day I got it 65,000 miles ago. And it still looks almost new and has a mirror polish.

With true cheap mufflers and resonators the packing will come out. However its not all or nothing. You dont have to spend $300+ to not have a crappy exhaust. A good part dosen't have to be super expensive. And just because a part doesn't cost a shit load doesn't mean its cheap.

i have seen the opposite from OBX products where i believe it was a newer rear UCA snap in half under normal driving conditions on a car lowered about 2 inches with the camber kit set to oem camber specs while on the 5 freeway heading for a major accord meet that was being hosted in southern california

after seeing that i have learned to not trust OBX nor support products along with some other accord owners who were traveling in the pack with him when it happend or who met up with us

now i know that mufflers are not included for the most part in life or death situations...but if they cant keep quality on a essential part then what about the not so essential parts

but if its still working for you after all this time then awesome

also im not saying that an exhaust needs to be $300+ nor did i say that a good part have to be expensive

i said i would recommend magnaflow (a cheaper muffler than the obx by 40 bucks and its what i feel is a better quality than the OBX in the first place and is comparable in sound to the legit WS2)

but im all for buying ebay exhaust and swapping out the mufflers for better ones

A Magnaflow muffler for $20?

Id say Magnaflow is better than OBX aswell. But it cost more. A good one that sounds good and looks good costs about $200. If your going to do that you might aswell buy a real WS2 muffler.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magnaflow-14...795944&vxp=mtr
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magnaflow-14...793a3b&vxp=mtr
http://www.ebay.com/itm/magnaflow-mu...ca5fd1&vxp=mtr

Almost every OBX muffler is $60 shipped. And almost all OBX resonators are $40 shipped.
