Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

Stop right there. What year and trim prelude do you have? The fujitsubo is for 5th gens, the no name is for 4th gens.

Please specify.

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

No exhaust will give you a meaningful boost in overall engine performance without other significant mods that go beyond just simple bolt ons that warrant a different exhaust configuration. If your just interested in a more aggressive sound , just plug the passageway coming from your air filter box to the intake resonator box that is shown at the bottom of the part shown in the picture below .



Or you can purchase the device in the link below if your into this kind of juvenile non sense.

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

^^^what?^^^ you need to wear gloves while using those eagle one chemicals, they're seeping into your bloodstream.

Fujistubo is a HUGE name in japan for exhausts and intake delivery. Just like sheepdog exhausts. You're paying good money and getting great results.

OP if you have a 5th gen prelude, fujitsubo is the way to go. Avoid the cheap kit.

Wrong. Look at my setup. I run a vibrant muffler w/3" piping from the collector back. I LOVE the way it sounds and could not recommend it more. UPSLuder will back when saying this is an absolutely worthwhile mod as he runs the same setup per my recommendation. ALL I have are bolt ons. Period. Nothing else. And I make 188whp and 168tq. Do ur research.

To The OP I recommend my setup.




Doesnt matter what gen u drive u can use this setup lol

Your one size fits all statement makes me want to .
On the street you can't spend all your time above 5k rpm and if your regularly running your engine above 7.4k rpm so as to exploit your heavy breathing enhancements with out making durability enhancements , then I guess you will join the select group of 5th gen Prelude owners who rant about the necessity of all of us 5th gen Prelude owners the need to carry a oil drum in their trunk.Also it seems to me ,that your assuming the guy wants to use his car as a drag car and not a track or back road car. Believe it or not ,their are a lot of people like me that use the Prelude as it was designed for use in a back road or track type driving environment.If most Prelude owners wanted a drag car , they probably would have gotten a more appropriate ride for that purpose like a Mustang or a Camaro.I understand their are people who get off doing unorthodox things like drag racing lawn mowers, mopeds and fwd cars,and good for you, but I venture to say that most people who drive Preludes are not like that.If this guy is using his car as a track or road car ,your mods may give him an unsatisfactory result like the one shown below.

Yes if u get the right Kteller 3" piping kit (which they make) and a muffler (which is universal) it will work on either generation. How ddo I know this do u ask? Hmm...well I drive a 4G n UPSluder drives a 5th and we have the same setup. Mind boggling isnt it?

On the street you can't spend all your time above 5k rpm and if your regularly running your engine above 7.4k rpm so as to exploit your heavy breathing enhancements with out making durability enhancements

When I race or undergo "spirited driving" I run the car to its potential. HOWEVER power is made ALL THE WAY thru the rpm range. ,

then I guess you will join the select group of 5th gen Prelude owners who rant about the necessity of all of us 5th gen Prelude owners the need to carry a oil drum in their trunk.

You sir are a moron who A.) Knows NOTHING about cars and mechanics and B.) Obviously cant fuhkin read either bc I drive a 95 as it says so in my sig

Also it seems to me ,that your assuming the guy wants to use his car as a drag car and not a track or back road car. Believe it or not ,their are a lot of people like me that use the Prelude as it was designed for use in a back road or track type driving environment.If most Prelude owners wanted a drag car , they probably would have gotten a more appropriate ride for that purpose like a Mustang or a Camaro.I understand their are people who get off doing unorthodox things like drag racing lawn mowers, mopeds and fwd cars,and good for you, but I venture to say that most people who drive Preludes are not like that.If this guy is using his car as a track or road car ,your mods may give him an unsatisfactory result like the one shown below.
And once again this is all just useless jargon a diarrhea of the mouth (or in this case ur fingers) that u spew and try to share like u know wtf ur talkin about. My car is NOT a drag car its my DD. Have I tracked it, yes I have. BUT so have MANY other ppl on this site. Dont believe me? Look in the DRAG section. The mod i suggested will make good poweer all around whether he's cornering (which I do frequently) or going in a straight line. As for racing mopeds and other sh1t like that maybe thats where ur useless comments and "enlightenment" could be useful bc EVERYONE on this forum knows other then one post out of ALL ur posts u have absolutely NOTHING of merit or value to add to this community. So MR Prelude driver the way ur supposed to drive a prelude man....Hows about u get a new ride or stfu and learn what ur talkin about. Stop wasting bandwidth and ppls time with ur useless posts

Edit: Just FYI Cornering or handling has little to nothing to do with the way ur motor is modded for power. Handling and or cornering performance is based of tuning (where power is made) and suspension/tire combos. AND driver skill which considering ur a moron I would advise against u tryin it above 20mph

Basic bolt ons will never effect handling the way you're carrying on about. ANY car can be made to go fast in a straight line; if that's what the owner wants. Extra work goes into making a drag car go faster in a straight line; including the TIGHTENING OF SUSPENSION SO THERE IS ZERO SWAY.

As far as you know, anyways. Guess your the kind of car owner that sees something with a big motor, wide rear tires, crazy low 1/4 mile and therefore can't do anything else. Well here's something that qualifies.





Why you gotta jack this thread? There hasn't been much going on in PZ.

Not you. Not yet

Mr. Romario, Your needs require a 3" exhaust setup. you can order what Diamond Lude is using stateside, but these are more up your alley: Bolt on!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/APEXi...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...d=252996194006

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BUDDY...Q5fAccessories

While exhaust may leave the port at 1500 degrees or more, at the tailpipe it's down to 150 degrees -- a sign energy has been lost. Velocity and uninterrupted flow are the real performance-making factors."
- BORLA PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES

your kteller hype exhaust is uninterrupted all right when it not having anything quieting the sounds, not very pleasant.
why dont you take everything that silences off from 2,5", everybody just compares this thing: straight pipe vs piping with silencers

and for romario:



chinese SRS have made copy of mugen exhaust, much cheaper than real one

* Material: SUS 304 polished stainless steel 60.5 mm.
* Fits to all Prelude 92-96 types

http://www.akr-performance.nl/shop_u...k-twinloop.php
http://www.akr-performance.nl/shop_u...midsection.php

you can email to them and ask for offer, usually they shave little bit off from the price

AKR is one of the best place where to get Honda parts in Europe
"Transport costs: Whole Europe: EUR 25,- "

order a pair of side skirts at the same time ;) you can order as much you like and the shipping is only 25e!!

anyway, I have skunk2 and I like it (AKR delivered that also)

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

honestly imo, (and no offense to anyone) a 3" exhaust is a bit excessive. i personally have 2.5 and could not be any happier with the sound or performance of it. Also from having friends with honda's buy these expensive exhaust systems and i believe i found a much easier way.

do your research find the headers u like the best (megan for me) buy a high flow cat (since u have a obd1) then find an univeral muffler u like the sound of. (tanabe hyper medalion i what i have) then take it to a shop that can give u custom piping and install it all for u. spending about 400 total and imo a better setup.

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

3" piping on h22s has been dyno proven over and over n over again to make more power over 2.5". Period. Idc what anyone thinks (no offense) bc this is a proven fact. I had 2.5" piping prior to 3" and I now make around the same hp but gained 14lbs of tq. I also went from no cat to having a cat n could use a couple other things that could boost my numbers....but 3" piping on n h22 is dyno PROVEN. U cant argue a proven fact. And as for no resonator my car isnt that loud. I can hear ppl talking and my radio just fine at normal driving conditions. I chose not to get a resonator. If u wanted one u could get one. UPSLuder has one for his setup

I gave up performance for comfort when I went with my Hytech replica header and Apex`i WS2 exhaust, lol.

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

i unfortunatly havent gotten to dyno my car yet (dont kill me i know the importance of a tune) at the beggining of sept when i get back from some training i am getting stage 1 crower cams and some suspension mods. i will then update my way out of date ride thread and post some dyno results! not bashing 3" exhaust i just chose to go with 2.5, at the time i had a h23 and wasnt the slightest bit worried about what numbers i was pushing, just how many trophies i could get, and how it sounded

in most cases what here has been going on 3" have no silencers, 2,5" does, right? so in 2,5" with silencers slows down the flow when 3" they doesnt... so imo you cant compare them?

AND when ordering goods from us to eu its damn expensive...

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

Just finished putting my eBay exhaust system in and it sounds real nice, even with the silencer it's loud, but 4X louder without it. I noticed a little performance increase but nothing crazy. I mean for $120 it's not bad. I'm happy

because if its cheap, its not good material - not real stainless steel - it rusts - you have to buy another one
and the silencers/mufflers might not be that good what brand name models use. they could be louder and they might not flow as good - you dont get as good performance with them

if you buy real stainless steel exhaust, the material costs more but it lasts almost the cars lifetime

Re: Man, need your opinion: Exhaust

I say that you cannot get good products with cheap price.
Theres a reason why one is cheaper than others.. usually its because poor quality

cheap price = poor material
expensive price = good material

not always of course but usually

try to find people (google?) who has that same exhaust and find out their opinions about them.

and remember that ordering stuff from US to europe is damn expensive... you might want to order good stuff
