APEXi Noir

i just installed the apexi noir catback exhaust. i absolutely love it. the only thing i dont like is it hangs kinda low in the middle. but tomorrow im going to modify the hangers on it to suck it up to the undercarriage a little. its the 60mm piping (2 1/4") at idle and under 4000rpm it is soooo quiet so this is perfect for those who need to stay within sound guidelines or dont want police attention. however when vtec kicks in it has a semi-loud and low growl. with an intake it sounds amazing. apexi noir-FTMFW!
p.s. ill post pics and videos up soon.

Ive always liked that exhaust, where did you buy it from? I looked at the apexi website and they are saying they dont even make it for preludes.

Re: APEXi Noir

Is the Noir identical to the WS2 with just a slight difference in tip shape and that it's black?

I called Apexi and they confirmed that the two cat backs are identical except the Noir has a WS1 tip and is painted black. Seems like the WS2 sells for cheaper so...

Re: APEXi Noir

my only question is how long is the full catback piping going to last? If it's mild stainless then it's a waste of money, as well as if it were SUS403 stainless steel. If it cannot last a winter without rusting anywhere then it isnt worht the 500-700 dollars spent. Which is why i went with Greddy, 4 winters and rust only on the hangers' weld, the rest of the catback was just colored from the heat. If Apex uses the same steel as greddy then I'd go for them.
