Re: THE Exhaust Review Thread

Brand & model: OBX-R Forza HR02 Harpoon Style Muffler

Price paid and from where: $60 shipped from ebay

Pros: SUPER SUPER Deep growl at low RPMs. At high RPMs you could barely hear it. Little or no Highway drone. Super deep tone on a cold start.

Cons: i mistakingly ordered the wrong muffler and got the 3" inlet for turbo cars.
otherwise some dirt got on it and now its dirty, seems like the dirt boded with the hot muffler.

Final verdict: i love it, great muffler for the price. will buy again except the right size.

Re: THE Exhaust Review Thread

Brand & model: Dual "Stealth" mufflers, supposedly made by Aero. Costom exhaust from the cat back with 2 1/4" piping, sliced off the resonator and pre-muffler.
Price paid and from where: $400 at a local shop
Pros: Nice deep yet subtle tone, exactly what I was going for originally. Noticeable power gain in VTEC rpm range.
Cons: Drones a little on the highway
Final Verdict: The mufflers look stock; originally I wanted to keep it looking OEM and low key, but recently decided that I like the big huge dual cannon mufflers on our cars lol. Also a bit leary about going with an off brand, but the guy at the exhaust shop swore the Stealth is just like the Magnaflow but he liked it better because the Magnaflows have some weak spot where they tend to rot. Overall I'm satisfied with it.

THE Exhaust Review Thread

Brand: Apexi WS2 Catback exhaust

Price and where: $503.00 from www.racinglab.com

Pros: Sounds super good, similar to a stock exhaust for the Nissan 350z. When you accelerate or idle, that's the only time you will notice the deep sound otherwise once you maintain a steady speed you barely hear anything.

Cons: For my system, the hangers on the muffler was welded off a bit which when I mount the muffler, it's not level horizontal perfectly. Also it's big and shinny drawing a lot of attention.

Final verdict: I love it and worth the money. No weed whacker sound at all.

Re: THE Exhaust Review Thread

Brand & model: Apexi World Sport 1

Price paid and from where:190 from here (accord02se)

Pros: not as big as WS2, deep sound at lower rpms then engine is heard over the exaust at higher rpms... definately can tell a difference from stock accord exaust w/ H22 vs ws1 w/ h22.. gets threw the lower rpms much quicker and vtec pulls harder

Cons: nothing big, was used, discontinued, and turns a goldish color after getting hot

Final verdict: definately worth every penny... just what I was looking for in an exaust looks great performs well... money well spent

Re: THE Exhaust Review Thread

Brand & model: DC Sports Ceramic Coated Header 4-2-1
Price paid and from where: $100, Craigslist
Pros: Gave me a bit more torque throughout the powerband. It's more noticeable when going up a hill. Also gives a deeper and less whiney tone to the car when driving.
Cons: None, it was a good deal for the price
Final Verdict: If you can get a good deal on this header, then I would jump on it right away. It is definitely worth it and it is CARB certified so you won't run into any problems with smog checks.
