Since I made an Intake Review Thread, I thought that it was only fair to make an exhaust one. Same instructions will be followed as in the Intake Review Thread.

Now let's see those exhausts!


08-04-2008, 08:19 PM
Name of exhaust: A'PEXi World Sport 2

Cost: $430 (Out the door)

Year/Model/Motor: 1995/Integra GS-R Sedan/B18C1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
1) Stock air box with Spoon air cleaner
2) DC Sports ceramic 4-2-1 one-piece header
3) Stock catalytic converter

Your Impression: I chose the WS2 mainly because I had one on my 91 CB7. Due to it's chambered design, it's a fairly quiet exhaust. However, once you go WOT, it really roars. It's a perfect exhaust for a daily driver and for someone who doesn't want anything too loud. It also keeps you under the radar, away from cop attention.

1) Quiet
2) Sleeper status
3) Affordable

1) Chambered (Little gain in power)
2) Canister is huge
3) Resonator hangs a little low

Overall Rating: 4/5

Name of exhaust: Apexi N1

Cost: $450+

Year/Model/Motor: 1998/GSR/B18C1

Your Impression: VTEC screams!! Good exhaust note. Deep tone. Good quality didn't lose its tone or muffling ability after time. But I'm not a fan of N1 style canisters. Also too loud for my tastes. This shit will set off car alarms!!

Pros: Nice(but loud) exhaust note, excellent quality and fit, follows stock path, polished muffler for good looks, top end power

Cons: Again loud, muffler lost its shiny

Overall Rating 4/5

Name of exhaust: Buddy Club Spec II
Cost: $250 well thats how much i got myne for but im sure its around 400$ something

Year/Model/Motor: DC2/DC4

Your Impression: A Simple slip fit design that is easy to install. sits very nice does not hang low and has a sexy angle to it. The Spec II hugs the bumper nicely. exhaust is pretty much a 2.5 in straight pipe with no muffler. comes with and optional scilencer. loud but has probably the deepest grumble out of any exhaust and turns your car into a fucking jet plane at WOT.

Pros: Makes good power and sounds great
Cons: loud and not legal

Overall rating 3.5 because it is an aquired taste and most can not get away with using it.
and a 4.5 if your like me

08-04-2008, 09:51 PM
Name of exhaust: Geniune 2000 Integra Type-R

Cost: $200 (header to muffler)

Year/Model/Motor: 1997 LS B18B1

Your Impression: Not too much of any performance gains. ITR brochures state it's a 30% exhaust efficiancy over stock GSR/LS,etc. The exhaust note did change very slightly. I've only had the stock exhuast and while this is a set up, it's not like a A'PEXi WS2, it's quieter. I don't know if that exhaust makes more power or not but this is a great exhaust if you're not into exhaust noise while still looking for a cheap, OEM performance oriented exhaust.

1. Factory exhaust with performance
2. Very affordable

1. Not that much in power gains

Overall Rating: (1-5) 1=sucks ass 5=FTMFW!

Only other engine mod is an AEM SRI.

Name of exhaust: RS*R ExMag

Cost: $600

Year/Model/Motor: 1993 Honda Civic D15B7 (sounds similar when applied to B series motors)

Your Impression: Great exhaust. As with any system, I wouldn't expect much power gains, but the tone I got out of it was exactly what I was looking for from any car.

-Quiet as hell!
-Orgasmic Tone
-Comes with all new gaskets
-still has a good pipe size for being so quiet (2.36in)
-Outer Tip Diameter isn't obnoxiously huge, but still noticeable (3.94in)
-Ricers usually don't bother unless you're on it because they can't hear it.
-no cops (not even looks)
-It's GREAT for N/A application.

-was resting on my bumper when I first installed, but after a while it backed off.
-A little small for turbo's, but I will still be using it when I'm boosted.
-Not much power gain

Overall Rating: (1-5)

Kuchtaboy you have the new RS*R version correct? the full stainless steal one... I have the " old version" black chambered one...
here's sound clip

before/after pic

I agree 100% with Kuchtaboy, but I'd rate it 5

and I also think IF post sound clips, we should list what intake/header we are using cuz that effects the sound of exhaust.
I'm was running::
BSQ Icetake, stock air box. K&N & Ebay short ram.
Comptech 4-2-1
Carsound cat

Both RS*R EXMAG are DISCOUNTED, just in case someone looking for one, you half to buy it used.

Name of exhaust: A'PEXi World Sport 2

Cost: $450

Year/Model/Motor: 1994 Integra LS w/ B20B

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
2.75" CAI, Vibrant 4-2-1 Header, Vibrant High Flow Cat.

Your Impression: For me this is my 7th or 8th exhaust on the car. I've had Borla, Flowmaster, Invidia, Apexi N-1 and the Original WS. I like this exhaust because it is quiet and give that nice crisp exhaust tone that lets someone know that your car is modified, but doesnt let them know the extent of your mods. Very sleeperish.

Quiet, exhaust tone, sleeper

Chambered (Little gain in power)

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Name of exhaust: RS*R Ex-Mag

Cost: Used off Kuch

Year/Model/Motor: 99 Civic Si, B16A2

Brand/Model: Spoon Sports N1 Silencer (Axle-back)

Cost: $550

Year/Model/Motor: 1995 Integra GS-R Sedan/B18C1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
Spoon Sports air cleaner
DC Sports ceramic 4-2-1 1-piece header
OEM catalytic converter

Your Impression:

Before installing the N1, I already knew that I was going to love it. After installing it and driving around, I was immediately in love. Obviously, the N1 is much louder than my previous WS2 since it's straight-through. Luckily the B-Pipe from the WS2 bolts up to the N1, so I didn't have to get custom piping. Only problem is that there's a little rattling from 3000-4000 RPM. I have to take a look and fix it, but I'm sure it's nothing serious. Overall, the Spoon N1 is pure Sexy Time. Especially from 6000 RPM all the way to redline. It screams, making you want more!

Straight-through design
Low profile due to small canister and tip
Lightweight compared to other axle-backs
Has a Sexy Time exhaust note

Axle-back (B-Pipe is sold separately)
Not for people who want a quiet exhaust

Overall Rating: 4

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: AEM short ram, stock, stock

Your Impression: First it was just straight piped fun for about a week, got the muffler with no resonator sounded like rasp, got resonator and it sounds really good in my opinion deepest I have heard on a honda in town and its not to loud.

Name of exhaust: [Mugen B pipe + obx twin loop

Cost: $250 + extra fee installation labor @ the muffler shop.[veries for where you get your welding done]

Year/Model/Motor:1999 integra gsr b18c1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: Cold air intake generic
Stock headers
stock cat.
Mugen B-pipe
2.5 inlet obx TwinLoop 3" outlet

Your Impression:
I was aiming for something with a low tone like the WS2. I looked up the obx twin loop and saw good reviews on forums, although I never saw any good videos or sound clips of it. I wasn't sure what it would sound like, so I was kinda aiming blind site with the set up i bought. When I got it installed I was satisfied with the pieces I choose.

Pros: Silent, slightly more power, it was really cheap compared to everyone else.
Cons:obx twinloop - you have get it welded@ a shop, the flange that goes over the right lca doesn't come with the twinloop. you need it fabricated for your twinloop inlet size.

Overall Rating: (1-5) 1=sucks ass 5=FTMFW!
5 only because i was surprised of the result

Excuse me for dropping the F bomb, its not everyday you find a dinosaur!

Magnaflow Catback system (MANDREL BENT 2 1/4). I did on my bros car few weeks ago. Just go around uploading the video. Hope you boys like it..

Price: $460-500

Mods: All stock, Cat, Header, Intake.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gropcn2flJg Magnaflow.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2d5c8Pid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2d5c8PidNo) stock


A hella of a difference from stock. About 20lbs shaved off the car from stock. I felt a lot of gains in the Mid range power band. Has the stock gsr cat, intake and header. What an increase in performance. Check it out before and after. Change the restrictive OEM piping asap. This magnaflow was a perfect bolt on Exhaust system. Took about an hour and change up was fast. Goes for about $460-500. Well worth the money, plus it's made in USA with lifetime warranty.

Check out the videos. I am selling mine..Check market place..Best deal on earth!


Here are pics. Also attached a video of exhaust from my brothers car.

Brand/Model: HKS Hi Power Cat Back

Free 99, retail is about $550

1996 Acura Integra LS

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
Greddy 4-2-1 Header
Blox Test Pipe
HKS Hi Power

Your Impression:
At first i only wanted to do it because i had a gsr header on and the ls piping was too short on my greddy sp2. but i absolutly loved that exhaust and couldnt ask for another one. End of story there is no better exhaust, no sexier tone...well except for mugen and spoon ones but damn, it was a good exhaust.

minimal bends in the piping
sounds sexy time
cheap for a cat back
N1 styled

its an under axle exhaust so you will scrape over speed bumps
its loud as fuck
you will scrape
its only sold in a 2.36" piping diameter

Exhaust: Magnaflow Catback Exhaust

Cost:Gift from the gf (used)

Year/Model/Motor: 1995 Acura Integra GSR

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:

Intake - 3" eBay Short Ram Intake + K&N Filter
Header - OEM Header
Intake Manifold - OEM Intake Manifold
Catalytic Converter - OEM Cat


Noticable response in the throttle
Breathes better
Very quiet in the car
Sits just right
Not too flashy
Nice, deep hum
Not too loud
Not too quiet
VTEC engages a little lounder


Dented muffler (got it like that)

Impression: I was it expecting it to be louder than it was. I wanted it to be louder, but after driving around with it, it's perfect. I definitely felt a difference because there was better throttle response. The car seemed to breathe a lot better. I can also feel a very slight power increase in higher RPM's. I can't hear it at all in the car. I still want to see how it sounds from the outside.

Overall Rating: 4

Name of exhaust: Skunk2 Megapower (60mm) Exhaust

Cost: $450 Shipped

Year/Model/Motor: 1995 Integra SE (LS) B18B1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: AEM Short Ram Intake/DC Sports 4-2-1 Ceramic Header/OEM Cat

Your Impression: I installed it with the silencer in immediately for about a week straight. I really did enjoy the sound of the silencer (video below). Sheriffs in my area are dicks, so silencer stays in. When I finally decided to take the silencer out, I really heard/felt this baby open up. A clean, deep roar when in high RPMs and sounds great at idle too.

Pros: Deep, Loud, Breaths a lot better, Looks sexy, Noticeable gains

Cons: Loud, Very loud, Did I mention it's LOUD? The drone on the freeway gives me a headache everytime I drive without the silencer. Should be okay as long as I keep it under 3k RPM on the streets.

Overall Rating: I would give this a 4. It's better than I expected (even after all my research), but it's loud aggessiveness causes it to fall short from perfect.

Cost: $320 picked up

Year/Model/Motor: 1996 Integra RS B18B1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: AEM CAI, stock exhaust manifold, stock cat

Your Impression: amazed of the sheer size and awesome craftsmanship

Overall Rating: i would give this a 5 because it was spot-on on what i was looking for

Name of exhaust: Skunk 2 MegaPower (60mm)

Cost: $485

Year/Model/Motor: 1996/GsR/JDM B18c

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: AEM Short Ram/DC 4-1 Header/Skunk2 high flow cat

Your Impression: As long as you shift around 2500 rpm's you won't hear it otherwise, alert the local media any time you get on it slightly even with the silencer. I welded the silencer in since I have a kid and you can still hear me from 2 to 3 blocks away unless granny shifting. Sounds good when your getting on it, good tone, sounds aggressive.

Pros: looks good, sounds good

Cons: loud as fawk

Overall Rating: (1-5) 1=sucks ass 5=FTMFW! 4 due to how loud she be

Name of exhaust: Buddy Club Pro Spec

Cost: $540 shipped (evasive motorsports)

Year/Model/Motor: 1994 Integra LS

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: All stock(for now)

Your Impression: Packing of exhaust was VERY poor. My exhaust had 3 dents on it from shipping,which kind of pissed me off considering Buddy Club’s rep for quality products(also sent wrong exhaust strap hanger. Vendor said that they’ll get with Buddy Club for replacement. Sent pics,see how that unfolds). Exhaust did however sound AMAZING. Low at idle, deeper and louder thru 4th gear and at 60mph in 5th the tone subsided and was drivable at highway speeds.

*Update: Apparently the “rep for BC” informed me that the exhaust strap hanger is correct. If you care about asthetics,pass on this exhaust*

Pros: light weight / beautiful welds / exhaust note

Cons: Exhaust Strap Hanger looks terrible / Pipe near rear axle hangs a little low for my taste / sound and tone might not be for everyone

Brand/Model: Skunk2 Racing Mega Power cat-back exhaust system

Cost: $450.00

Year/Model/Motor: 1994 Integra LS Hatchback/JDM B20B

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
AEM 3" ITR cold air intake system
DC Sports ceramic 4-1 one-piece header
Skunk2 Racing test pipe

Your Impression:
One of the main reasons why I went with the Skunk2 Racing Mega Power cat-back exhaust system is the sound note. Having watched numerous videos of the Mega Power on YouTube, making the decision was easy. Since I was already planning on getting the Skunk2 Racing test pipe, I figured that I might as well keep it consistent. So far, I've been loving it and haven't come across any problems.

Sexy exhaust note
Straight-through design

Name of exhaust: Yonaka cat back

Cost: $239

Year/Model/Motor: 99 / Gs / B18b1

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup: DC Sports CAI / Stock

Your Impression: Awesome for the price, sounded great with the stock intake, even better with the new CAI. It is never too loud, deep throaty sound. When I floor it I can still here the engine over the exhaust, purrs quietly on the highway.

Pros: Cheap, perfect sound, stainless steel, bolts up perfectly.

Cons: Some of the welds are starting to rust after a year (lathered them up with clear enamel), the tip is a too big and a bit gaudy. If you don't want the welds to rust, spray paint them with clear enamel before you install it.

Intake/Header/Catalytic Converter Setup:
AEM 3" ITR cold air intake system
Skunk2 Alpha header
PLM JDM ITR test pipe

Your Impression:
I wanted a louder exhaust. I threw I purchased it from JDMxDB8 and i loved it. Its nice and loud and sounds awesome when youre on the power. Pretty loud cruising as well. I started to change it back and forth between tracks as this will not pass Thunderhill's 103 dB limit. The muffler is actually being reused on a Miata now.

sounds nice

wont pass sound at any Nor Cal track.

Your Impression:
My original exhaust. Its awesome. Super quiet now with the Alpha header. I like it, i was able to hold a conversation the entire way to Thunderhill with my buddy the other week. Passes sound no problem. I like the deep sound, you hear more of the motor with this exhaust rather than just the exhaust. I think its one of the best sounding exhausts for the Integra.

sounds nice
passes sound levels

Vtec doesnt sound as angry
