my exhaust

well this is my exhaust all i have done is a muffler and a removed resonator. i am ordering headers and catback exhaust. i am a lil worried bout the sound... if its gonna be deeper or ricey. im also thinking about gettin a test pipe for the cat...removing the cat would make the sound more high pitched correct?

best you could look for is probably sound clips of the exhaust is N1 the brand and type or is it N1 and something else?

Removing the cat generally makes the exhaust sound tinny and crap, and also gives a good "fk you" to the environment...all for a gain of 0.0025HP (at the flywheel)

Apexi's N1 sounds pretty damn good. I got the Apexi WS2, sounds good but its really quiet. my roommate had the N1 on his teggy and it sounded pretty damn good.

I had an N1 on my DSM.. it was very deep and nice. But I don't think I would ever put it on my prelude because I think the dual exhausts look so much better on 5th Gens..

the only dual one I have found is the Monza catback.. still looking for one that looks like my stock one, but bigger piping - might have to go into custom fabrication

Ebay generic N1 plus test pipe equals verrrrrrrry loud and verrrrrrrrrrrrry rice. I had that exact setup before and it was absolutley rediculous. N1 does look really good though and sounds really good with an actual cat installed. not sure about the sound with it combined with a true high flow cat though.

With a good catback a high-flow is definatly worth it. But on it's own you'd probably not feel a difference.

a high flow cat will add a little hp but not a lot, not enough to warrant the cost for me. Especially considering a high flow cat really does have the same size holes in the honey comb its just larger so more air can move through at once thats how its less constrictive.

Well in theory you can make your own high flow cat by just buying a straight through cat from the GM parts shop, they're bigger...

actually, you need to at least get a magnflow high-flow cat (metal substrate) at the site above... it will be more likely to be raspy and sound like sh!t... and as some people say, not using it is a big FU to the environment. The resonator will eliminate some of the higher pitched noises and bring the volume down considerably... get one as long as you can fit.. 16-20"?... with a decent muffler... like your catback system or one of the universals from the site above... this setup should give a mellow deep sound that I happen to enjoy.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THE DERN SILENCER, IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF YOUR NICE EXHAUST... it makes more sense to add resonators

pipe: $150 (maybe...)
h-f cat: $80
res: $65
muffler: $90-200 (depends what you want) = $385-495 for everything but the header... a good route ALSO.

www.hottexhaust.com :great magnaflow deals on everything but pipe (and the "high-end mufflers")
stuff typically gets even cheaper when added to the cart enjoy.

Here is my car on the blueridge motorsports dyno after eCtune... it sounds louder than it is due to the high rpm runs inside the garage... I plan on putting some drive-bys on youtube at some point...
details on my mild eCtuned na build in "more info" on youtube

I made the mistake of not getting a resonator right off the bat...got it real soon after the swap... the car could shake down buildings... the resonator is so important, made such a drastic difference... I would say get at least a 16", if you can fir 18" do it!, if you can fir 20+" go for it... I don't catch as much attention as I could, but then, I don't want to.
