Stock exhaust replacement

I've been doing a lot of research on different replacements, but I haven't found what I'm looking for. I'm sick of the stock exhaust sound as it sounds like a weed whacker and looking for a replacement. People have said the OBX twin loop with custom 2.5" piping is the way to go but my question is will it sound good with everything else stock? My main goals are primarily looks, and sound.

Re: Stock exhaust replacement

There are a ton of videos on youtube that showcase a lot of the popular exhaust sounds on preludes. I would check to see if your particular one is on there to get an idea of what it would sound like. If you don't want to do a full exhaust and spend lots of $$$, you can always throw a tip on your exhaust. You can get them fairly cheap off of eBay. Just got to be conscious on what your buying on eBay.

Re: Stock exhaust replacement

Stock sounds like a weed eater? Hmmmm, mine is nice n quiet. Can't hear it for the growl of the H22.



You sure it's stock?

Re: Stock exhaust replacement

Yeah the car has been only been in my family and I'm the second owner. I just wanted a deep sounding exhaust. I guess weed whacker is a bad way to word it but it's too high pitched for my liking.

Re: Stock exhaust replacement

Oh, ok... yer after the japanese hornet sound... gotcha.

There's a ton to pick from. I'm going with a thermal research someday. Idles nice n quiet like stock but has some buzz when you gas it... and it looks stock. Bolts onto what I already have.

Others here can chime in since they prefer non stock sound. The coolest (imo) I've heard in real life is Wings8806 set up. But it's expensive.

Re: Stock exhaust replacement

Sounds like you got an exhaust leak.... The piping if stock is probably rusted to hell, and I guarantee you your gonna need a cutting tool to remove the old exhaust.... I did. Also you'll probably want to consider getting new header studs because your gonna have issues removing the header,.......

OBX twin loop will be quiter at low rpms but when you get on it it will get loud, but a nice loud. Get the piping you want, magnaflow hi flow cat, and if you don't care about performance go with Megan racing header and flex pipe,(comes with header)

If you want power with sound, keep same exhaust setup, maybe 3in instead. Depends on your engine and ultimate goals, but get a nice header with power gains proven, like vibrant, hytech, etc.

If your on a budget and don't have the ability to weld, don't get the OBX muffler. From what I believe it's a weld on, could be wrong haven't looked at it in years. Megan racing provides a deep tone with less rasp, still there but less.... And is cheap. I'm looking to get a real mugen twin loop when I do my engine build with a vibrant header, 3in piping, and hi flow cat, if N/A, if boost ramhorn manifold with same setup.

Go to your gen section on the forum, and go to the resource guide for exhaust clips and info

Awesome thanks for the reply. In the meantime I am on a budget and wanted to get the OBX twin loop with custom 2.5" piping done from the stock cat back. Would you happened to know if that would sound any good? In the future, I am probably going to get a Hytech header or replica because I hear many good thing about them. Sorry I'm a little new and thanks again.
