Icon5 Headers changing exaust note.

Ok I have been doing a lot of searching about headers and all people talk about is hp gains and costs. (a little looks here and there. Chrome this, heat wrap and spray that) But what I was told was that it changes the exaust note to a higher pitch.

Ok now I still have my stock headers of course, but im gonna get some Chrome or Polished Megan ones in 2 weeks, but I dont care about power gains and all that. I just want reliability and I like the way it looks. But It took me forever to find an exaust that had the right sound. ( I love the low subtle tones) and if headers are gonna make me sound like a boosted D15 or something then I will definately pass on the headers and just keep my ugly heat sheild.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
(I dont have to say that im new and such its up top, oh wait i just did. oh well. Dont know if this is the appropriate place but I put it here anyway.

First its header, unless your the first V6 or V8 Prelude. Higher pitch sound, no I don't think so. I have the Megan header and it in no way makes it a higher pitch or a noticeable one. I can't even hear my exhaust until I open it up. I have a magnaflo high flo cat and the rest is back to stock. I do not like fart can mufflers. My exhaust sound is deep and sounds good when its opened up. I think what you are talking about is a system that has been gutted, like header w/ a test pipe and a fart can muffler.

Re: Headers changing exaust note.

I'm not sure aout a header changing the sound, but certain headers have been known to make the system as a whole louder.

Re: Headers changing exaust note.

I'm running something similar to that setup!!! Well actually it came with the ar but I nvr had the chance to change it. I have DC headers and I think a knockoff Greddy Evo2 muff!!! It looks a lot like the Greddy evo 2 but there's no branding of the comp logo on the exhaust tip.

But mine sounds like a deep tone but in a loud way. I think it also has to do with the V2?!?!

not sure but I plan on changing the muff to the legit Greddy Evo 2!!!

Re: Headers changing exaust note.

That's what's up bro and I. Got a a V2 also. I also got a throttle body and a intake manifold which think. Helps to. Oh and the brand name isn't on the tip its on the bottom of the muffler
