Please DO NOT Post In The General Section

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.

The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.

For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.

Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    Ok ground rules guys.
    Hopefully this becomes a sticky so let me start off with a few quick rules

    -Post pictures of your exhaust
    -If you have the means to do so PLEASE POST SOUND CLIPS
    -Keep comments to a minimum please. Keep this thread very nice and neat with pictures and sound clips would be alot more helpful then sifting through a bunch of posts to find what you're looking for.

    Now for the style of the posts,
    What engine do you have?
    make/model of the exhaust

    What do you think of the way the exhaust sounds?
    Please be as detailed as possable. (does it drone in the car at all?)
    Be sure to add details like if you have a test pipe or high flow cat.
    DO you have a turbo? All those things have a great impact on how the exhaust sounds (if you didn't already know)


    Sound Clips

    I'll start off,
    Tanabe Hyper Medalion
    Overall the sound in the car I like alot, doesn't drone much and isn't that loud when cruiseing. When I go Wide Open Throttle (WOT) it sounds Great and pretty mean. The THM has some minor fit and finish issues. the piping seems to be a little "off" in some areas under the car, but it never rattles.

    Outside the car is a different story. Under 3krpm it sounds pretty nice after that it starts getting pretty raspy. This could be partly due to the high flow car sound cat I have.

    The rasp has been getting to me more and more lately (you'll be able to hear it a little later when I find that sound clip).

    I think another resonator should quiet the rasp down enough to suite my tastes.

      Apexi World Sport Version 1

      It sounds pretty quiet when your cruising. When you get on it, it sounds deep and not ricey at all.

        2.5" Custom header-back system (mandrel bent of course and built by myself... )

        Don't mind the oil on the exhaust, the oil sensor is leaking...

        Consists of the following:
        - 2.5" piping, header-back
        - 2.5" mandrel bends
        - 2.5" baffled resonator
        - 2.5" non-baffled resonator
        - 2.5" straight through Magnaflow muffer
        - Ractive black chrome oval tip

        I absolutely love the way the car sounds even BETTER when under load...orgasmic, one could say... A little bit of a drone in the interior, but nothing annoying or unbearable...aftermarket exhaust is expected to be louder than OEM. It's been dubbed to sound "exotic-esque" by a few ppl as well....mmmmm, yessss...

        And a VIDEO with SOUND!



          MagnaFlow Custom Dual Exhaust

          Catco high flow cat
          2-2.25 in piping
          Stock Ex header
          Magnaflow 14" universal single in/dual out muffler
          Stainless steel tips with resonators (brand unknown)

          Overall nice tone, not too loud, sounds good at WOT.

          u can hear the exhaust here: Video Link

          Future plans:

          Redo piping to 2.25-2.5
          install DC header
          install JDM F20A DOHC

          I wonder what the tone will change to on a 2.0...

                Apexi WS1 catback

                sound is quiet when you drive normally, great for commuting/daily driving. when the throttle is wide open, it's got a deep roar to it... but still nothing super loud and obnoxious. hearing it from the outside, usually the sound of an aftermarket intake will actually drown out the exhaust tone. i love it, adds a stealthy sleeper effect and pretty much guarantees that you'll get no harassment from the cops.

                note that adding a test pipe/straight through catalytic converter will make this exhaust more raspy (like there's a hole in the muffler). i've tried it and immediately switched back to OEM cat.

                  Sounds nice a low at idle and sounds really mean when VTEC hits. Worth every penny spent!

                        It sounds pretty nice...more raspy and louder than my WS1 im not sure if its because of the cat but its not that loud like those ebay fireball mufflers.

                              It's semi loud. Real loud in VTEC. Drones a bit in the car. But I like it. Police will never no where the sound is coming from looks sleeeeeper.
