New exhaust

So I just bought a 92 4WS H23 prelude and the exhaust has to be replaced. I was going to go ebay cheap until I get everything for a H22 swap. This is what I was looking at.

Performance Red Intake Painted Header Black Tip Full Exhaust for Prelude H23 | eBay

From what I've been reading since then the exhaust isn't a real power adder over stock unless your boosted. Should I just leave in the stock header and down pipe and go cat back or would this kits header, down pipe and cat delete give me some extra hp?

Re: New exhaust

You won't gain doodely-squat but you'll be adding a bunch of poison to the air you breath by installing that exhaust and deleting the catalytic convertor.

Get a cat back or if you plan on an H swap soon go with a stock pipe from an auto parts store. Then at swap time go the big boy exhaust with high flow cat.

Re: New exhaust

The car has an h23 in it. The stock exhaust should bolt right over to a h22 right?

Re: New exhaust

Ya know, I really can't say for certain, but it seems like from the cat back, stuff would be in the same location. Your flex pipe and header would be different from the vtec engine vs what you have now I suppose

Re: New exhaust

If you want a really loud, aggressive (albeit kinda ugly) sound, just delete your muffler, but still get good piping and a resonator.

Here are a couple videos i found recently out of interest in what it would sound like:
96 Prelude

99 Prelude


I'm pretty sure deleting your cat is illegal in just about every state, but here's what that might sound like
2001 Prelude SH
