Apexi WS Exhaust not available for 4 dr sedan?

I noticed that Apexi only made the Worldsport exhaust for EK coupes and hatchbacks. What if I have a 4 dr sedan?

I was told that the coupe and sedan exhaust system are the same but the sedan is still longer than the coupe, so therefore wouldn't the exhaust look weird sitting 2-3 inches inside my rear bumper?

Any sedan owners try the WS before?

If you like it that much, just extend the tip with some aluminum piping.

Well I would like to see how the WS looks on a sedan because many exhaust companies like Apexi, HKS, Greddy, Magnaflow make just 1 exhaust for both the EK coupe and sedan.

means that coupe and sedan are the same thing.
so you can buy it on their site for a coupe and it will bolt right in into a sedan.

Kind of...

I had one for my EK Sedan and it was made for a coupe. The muffler sat perfectly at the rear; stuck out maybe a 1/2" and all the hangers lined up.

HOWEVER...the do not fit at header flange. The coupe exhaust is designed to fit an Si with a VTEC engine, which has a different header and the catalytic converter is underneath the car, instead of in front of the engine.

I had purchased a Hedman header (for an Si), hi flow cat, and the World Sport II all at once, so it fit together the same as a stock Si Coupe.

If you buy the cat back and do not have a VTEC engine, I'm 99% sure it won't mate up perfectly at the header flange. An exhaust shop should be able to make it fit iwthout any problems, though.

true.
completely forgot about this.

the vtec coupe (d16y8) flange is triangular while the non vtec is oval. also it will be short because the cat is not under the car so you would either have to replace your manifold with a y8 mani and downpipe or have an exhaust shop extend the pipe a little.
