Please post your setup here if you wish to share it with the rest of the community - brand name, diameter, cost of installation if applicable, etc...

Also, post your exhaust questions here: what would fit, what to buy, what sounds like what, etc...

Thank you

OEM, stainless steel here.

On my previous 98 Civic Si, I had a Magnaflow, a Comptech and an OEM SiR catback. The Magnaflow and the Comptech were the loudest, but not overlyloud. The Sir was a nice throaty sound, without being overbearing which both the other's were at times.

2.5 inch vibrant cat
2.5 inch piping
no resonator
2.5 vibrant stealth exhaust

it's ok down low, it's not too loud but when you start getting on it, it SCREAMS. it doesn't sound raspy surprisingly but i wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet muffler. i mean i've been followed by cops a lot but none of them has ever said anything about my muffler. i used to have a fart can and got hassled like crazy for it.

Question Exhaust Help

Ok guys, i just acquired a Honda civic HB EG DX. It has a swapped 1.5 L stock engine. With cold air and cheep exhaust. I think they put a cherry bomb turbo exhaust on it, but i cant be sure. I was wondering, what do i have to do to get rid of that annoying sound while cruising. Even on the highway at low RPM's i get a sound that its hard to hear the radio or even talk to a front passenger. What do i have to do to make performance while haveing a nice tone thats barrable and wont drive me crazy driving for hours.



PS. Also please include places i can get the parts you list.

magnaflow exhaust

I installed a magnaflow exhaust not long ago

because my car is kinda low after having passengers, the rear muffer scratched the the ground several times when i go on ramp onto malls and stuff. it doesnt scratch in normal driving

I am just wondering, would my exhaust rust? IT IS stainless steeles, but I make some scratches..

what can i DO? I cant re-adjust the height because i only put the lowering springs

if the tip is sitting right up against your bumper then there is no re-adjusting you can do, i also had a magnaflow on my ek hatch and it got scratched up pretty bad, especially at square one , but i never saw any rust! hope that helps

Exhaust Sytem

So i was thinking instead of just changing the cat as per my previous thread, (maybe I should do a complete replacement. I currently have an axle back 5ziegen and it's a little old now. I also have stock headers.

Does anybody have suggestions on where to go and what product I should look into for the followingwould need this asap)
-Full complete exhaust sytem from front to back
-def do not want something loud sounding though
-not top of the line(unless it's on super special)
-decent is what i'm looking for with decent power gain
-something that will help overl efficiency of my car.

Appliacation is for a 95 civic coupe dx model with jdm si d15b engine.

Thanks in advance everyone and happy motoring.


Will also post in wtb section
