    Hey guys, I need some more help. This time, I'm wondering if an exhaust system that fits an 89 CRX or 3-door can also fit on my 89 LX Sedan?

    Thanks!

    The axle back portion maybe might work, but I doubt the mid pipe would fit.

    te crx exhaust is shorter in the midpipe than a hatch exhaust,and id imagine that the 4 door would be longer than both

    So have an exhaust shop make you one with a good muffler.

    well, pep boys have a shit load of mufflers and parts, so there's always that. What do you guys think, should I just get a new muffler and tip, or get a whole new system? I was leaning towards getting the whole deal myself...

    Get a cat-back system made. I recommend a magnaflow muffler. they sound great and have awesome air flow. I think that you would be really happy with a full system. btw, is your engine stock or swapped/modded? any future mods planned? it really makes a differance on what size of pipe you want to use for your system.

    Nope, my engine is completely stock, except for some better spark plugs LOL good god I'm poor! My friend got a magna flow muffler system on his mazda 3, and it sounded really nice, quiet on the inside, but a bit louder on the inside.

    If your rolling Dual point, the magnaflow idea sounds good. I personally had a raggidy DX hatch a while back and had my local muffler shop replace the rusted out stocker for a flow master 40 I had laying in the garage. I really just did it so it would pass inspection, but it ended up sounding good.
    the best way to describe the sound would be like a WRX with a quality aftermaket exhaust at low rpm.. Low growl and nothing else. I wouldn't recommend that style of flowmaster for any of the higher reving honda engines though.... cause they sound like dookie at 5,000 rpm and beyond, atleast on 4 cylinders anyway.

    If your running a stock d15b2 I would get a Magnaflow 11113 muffler (1.75 in) and the pipes to go with it. Or if you want a little bigger pipe go (2.0 in) with a 11214.

    Get the muffler and then bring it to a shop. They can bend, weld, and install the rest of the piping that you will need for cheaper than you could buy it for.

    I went to Mighty Muffler lol. The dude made me an extension that I added between where the cat should be and off the header. I bought the flanges at Autozone for like $5 each and he welded them onto a length of pipe that I had given him measurements for. I think it was around $35 total for everything. I basically gave the guy $20 to give me some nice clean looking welds. I could of welded it myself but Im sure it would look like total ass when I was done with it. XD

    I like pretty welds. The piece looks like it belongs on the car. I could of done it myself but after all the money I spent on the exhaust I wanted it too look great.
