i have a civic EX and all i have on the car is a short ram intake, lightened pulley and 4-2-1 headers with stock muffler pipe and a low end aftermarket muffler.


i got a decent offer from a friend on a DC catback for the equivalent of about 400US in my hand. now i know that may sound like a lot, but where i live, shipping and duties to bring in one of these izza bitch!

i believe its a 2.25 inch catback setup.. and i would like to know if its worth the buy? forget that it's used. what i wanna know if the $ spent is worth the 'upgrade'

will there be any noticable improvement over stock 1.75" pipe? i plan on gutting the cat when im installing it as well...

what'ya think? buy this or keep stock and get a rom tune?

what i studying really is.. $2500 of our money (roughly 400US) is a damn good price for a catback........ :(

well it will make a bit more power, but you cant mod without exhaust. If you plan to further mod, you'll need it.

well the y8 mani, from what i've read on here, is one of the best ones out there, and it comes stock...but i have an IM for my car..and i think that whether or not ytou are going to mod farther i would go exhaust..and also note i may be horribly wrong, but it's simply my opinion

Best gains on a N/A motor are yielded from 1/4" to 1/2" larger-than-stock piping diamater. It will be worth it for the cat-back no matter what...get it son.

i was looking at the 5zigen fireball but after a demo on a friend's car it's way too loud man.
the apexi ws was also an option- but its too costly locally
i think im gonna get the dc piece... its not a bad price and i've managed to get a lower price... should have that in a month's time (waiting for the guy to bring it in)

PS slok, im not looking for any specific tone, i just DONT want anything raspy or ricey, and i still want to be able to hear my vtak engage every now and then so nothing ridiculously loud
