Re: Exhaust setup

Unless you got a crazy ass engine or turbo, you really don't need or want 2.5 piping. 2.25 is more than plenty. Plus unless you live in california, I would forgo the hi-flow cat and just get a test pipe. But thats purely your decision.

Re: Exhaust setup

/search we have tons n tons of threads, on this :3

3 inch piping for turbo etc; 2.25 is enough ^as stated. usually local muffler shops will do piping cheap and you can get just the exhaust tip and weld it on there. for cheap as well.
@abelspeed, people around here just cut open their oem trying to sound louder >.>

Re: Exhaust setup

yeah 2.25 sound better. all i have is an aem v2 intake and i dont plan on doin anythin after some suspension and lowering stuff then some bolt ons, maybe nitrous (ive been researching it) but i want to keep it nice. does that sound like a good plan? im also thinking bout camming it out.
also i was planning on having the shop do my highflow cat and the whole piping right there. its a performance car shop so i figure he"ll do what he can to make it flow as best as possible

just shut up. i mean really pls do. its great that you wanna help the guy out, but dont hand out false info. i would love to see a single dyno chart to prove that fact for the h22.. because i know i've seen quite a few dyno charts showing 2.5in being far superior to 2.25. and even then, now more and more dyno's are actually showing the best results having a full 3in exhaust on na h22's(not crazy built ones either).

And in response to that...I'm not going to be harsh, but seriously, the info is out there for you guys to find. Honda | Acura Research, Reviews, Performance Parts, Owners - Honda-Tech.com You find it, you read it, and then you can decide what you want.

Re: Exhaust setup

if you dont want to sound like an idiot you'll leave the resonator on and forget about the test pipe. use a magnaflow if you really want an aftermarket cat.

Re: Exhaust setup

Well I guess this would be the time for me to defend myself.

Where di I get the stupid idea to tell people 2.25 inch piping is probably better than 2.5 inch piping unless they have a really built N/A engine or turbo?
Right here: H22 Build-Up Information

Do theives know about the dead switch? Maybe. Is it even called a dead switch? Probably not, but it sounds cool.

And what I said about the test pipe, mine is a resonator test pipe. And I said it's purely your decision, as people get so anal about test pipes. "it sounds too loud, it pollutes, yadda yadda."

I like it, and have heard it on other ludes and it sounds good. But if you wanna go with a hi-flow cat, knock yourself out man

That thread is 3 years old mang. Progress is always being made. And I'm not going to tell someone to STFU if they're spreading misinformation, I was simply letting you know that things have changed a bit and there are different options out there now.

Re: Exhaust setup

Things change all the time but you can't change physics. I don't really understand how a piece of pipe could change so much in three years...

Re: Exhaust setup

I don't think "a piece of pipe" is all that has changed...lol. Up until recently it seemed to be common knowledge that anything bigger than 2.5" on a Honda motor would be overkill (unless you were boosted or had a crazy NA build). I'm guessing the way it went down was that someone bolted on some 3" piping to an H22 just for ****s and gigs and threw it on the dyno, and voila, better numbers. Who the **** knows why everything is the way it is, but the dyno doesn't lie. The proof is in the numbers. :shrug:

We're talking about the size of the actual exhaust piping, not the size of the tip on the muffler.

Re: Exhaust setup

Well if a 2.5 inch exhaust puts out better numbers on the dyno, then I guess it is what it is and I stand corrected.

Myself I'm putting a 2.5 inch exhaust on my car, but that was a decision based upon the fact that every other part of the exhaust was already 2.5 inch.
