Does rsx type-s muffler fit on prelude sh?

I'm looking for a stock muffler for my 98 prelude sh since the sound from the current catback is too loud.
But it is not easy to find a used stock muffler while there a couple rsx mufflers on seattle craigslist.
I've heard rsx-s muffler will fit on prelude.
Is it true so I don't need any modification to install it?

prelude have one of the biggest oem mufflers ive ever seen on a small car, you can probably get any muffler to fit as long as you angle it right

youll probably have to weld new hangers on it or ghetto rig it

yes, brian(prelude1897) runs one. dont know what he did, or if he did, anything to mount it. might just need new hangers like lilbill said. take it to an exhaust chop, and they should get it on like xplicitabilst said.

Re: Does rsx type-s muffler fit on prelude sh?

Since you have aftermarket catback, Im assuming/hoping the piping diameter is larger than stock

Its not as simple as put new hangers on and it'll bolt right up

An exhaust shop should be able to do everything to make it work probably under half an hr

Re: Does rsx type-s muffler fit on prelude sh?

i never said it would bolt right up. i said brian has one on his lude, but i dont know what mods he did to get it to work. also, being that you have after market piping, you are going to bottle neck your exhaust at the muffler, the rsx type s exhuast pipe diameter is 54mm or 2 1/8". most after market exhaust piping is 2 1/4" to 2.5".

here is a pic of a 5thy with one on it...

^Oh I wasn't referring to you, my bad bro

Just over-exaggerating to make a point to that it not as simple as the OP made it out to be

Re: Does rsx type-s muffler fit on prelude sh?

yeah...I have greddy evo2 installed with the unknown header by previous owner. I'm going to figure it out what header maker is and what size of the pipe.
The sound is really deep and heavy and I love it, but it is way loud with when driving (I want to hear some music )
Should I take off whole exhaust system and replace with stock one?

If the muffler is too loud then upgrade your system so that you can bump music and mufle the muffler! haha

Get a silencer for your exhaust and you will be fine, I have one on my exhaust and it is quiet enough to hear your music..

Re: Does rsx type-s muffler fit on prelude sh?

If you want quiet i would go with a stock catback system... I have one off a 98 base but the b pipe and axle back are stuck together and on top of all that it is in texas in my grandfathers garage(at least i hope he hasnt tossed it) so i cant help. Im sure if you post a wtb stock exhaust you could find one. (I didnt even think of putting myine for sale cause i figured nobody would want it) Dont chop up your greddy exhaust to put a stock muffler on... you could sell it, buy the stock and have some cash left over. Just a bit of advice... or you could always go with a vibrant universal muffler which should bring the dbs down a bit.
