Icon5 What do u guys think about this exhaust??

http://www.andysautosport.com/honda/...a00100119.html

its the yonaka exhaust.
I had one on my h22 4th gen and it was the deepest exhaust ive ever heard on a honda. and it made a lil bit of power with a high flow cat.
I was just wondering what you guys thought off the price?
etc etc.
i know i should go to a shop and get it done but i want that muffler no matter what! do u guys by chance know what kinda muffler is on it.?

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

Well for the 310 bucks i think your right on top of it with the price. I didn't really read up to much on it what material is it? titanium? and if its got the sound you want then i would suggest you buy it. I'm not an exhaust specialist but i'm pretty sure any exhaust with a good flow or bigger piping than stock will make more power. Some one correct me if i'm wrong haha

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

I will guarantee you won't be satisfied with the look or the sound of that exhaust. I've never heard of that company before, and I wouldn't be surprised if they make complete trash.

The exhaust is 4". That right there should tell you its just going to be a big fart can. you'll most likely end up with a raspy sound more so then a deep tone. Also, you wont gain or lose more than .5 horsepower with a cat-back exhaust. I'd be surprised if it was even that.

Keep towards brands everyone knows about. take a look around into sound clips and see what kind of exhausts everyone else is using, and find a nice deep tone that fits your criteria. I was lucky enough that I had my exhaust on my car when I bought it. N1 style with silencer. I love it to death.

Like I said, do some research into exhaust tones with different companies and brands, and find one that suits you. Performance won't be affected much, if at all. Regardless, you won't notice the difference.

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

the tip on my car is 4"( im pretty sure) and it has 2.75 inch piping through its a greddy TI-c and you can buy them for 650 dollars on ebay. It's a great deal for the pipe if your willing to pay the extra 300 bucks. My car is quite loud but its got a deep tone until it hits about 6000 RPM and then the deep tone goes away( realllllllllly quick) good luck with your choice

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

typically the bigger your piping is the deeper the tone is going to be, thats the reason that a lot of the civics and stuff that are running around are high pitched and buzzy because they're running a straight through muffler with no cat on stock 1 3/4" exhaust piping....

Not always...
The more open it is, usually is deeper. BUT, with shiity little honda motors, you get a raspy ass sound with big exhausts like that. Those little civics make the high pitched sound because they are only 1.5 ltr motors. They just sound like that when you put an exhaust on them. If you put your preludes exhaust on the civic, it'll still have that high pitched whiney sound.

Exactly. There is no noticeable power gain. No matter what anyone says. Its bullshiit. I read on a website people were saying they got 5-15 horsepower from some cat-back exhausts. You'll NEVER get that. Its a muffler. It muffles the sound. Thats all. The header/cat/tubing make the difference in performance.

I personally never had a problem with them, but your like the 3rd person thats said that. I bought a wood grain trim kit for my explorer, and some other tiny little interior pieces and had no problem whatsoever. A buddy of mine bought a (I believe it was) Zex Nitrous kit, and again, he had no problems with AAS.

my friend bought a muffler and it was 2 months before he got....the wrong muffler. it was an ordeal and their customer service wasn't to good. and another friend of mine bought a nitrous kit and they said they had one left and that they'd sell it to him then sold it out from under him it took a few weeks but he did get his money back.

if i were you i'd hit up raceinspired.com it's IMO the best site out there. fast shipping. great prices. i bought my EVO2 from there, cheaper than anywhere else i could find.

thats funny because i have a buddy with a EG coupe with a pretty much stock D16 in it with a full 2.5" exhaust, high flow cat, and some off brand resognator with a WS2 muffler and it's probally one of the deepest hondas i've ever heard

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

I had this exhaust on my old 92 and it was extremely loud and very very deep. I wish i had a sound clip!.
But horse power sounds better than the loud sounds it use to make.
hmmmmmmm. hp and tq or loudness and deep sounds...

Re: What do u guys think about this exhaust??

anything is going to get loud and high pitched when it starts turning RPM most cars with vtec as soon as they go into vtec they start getting high pitched and buzzy... think about a sport bike, when they're idleing or when they're barely revving them they have that really deep nice sounding tone to them, but as soon as they get up above 8k that cool deep sound turns into a high pitched scream, just like a formula car but the high pitched scream sounds much better coming from a sport bike or formula car than a honda
