    I have a 99EX with a B18C motor (also 99).

    The question is what kind of exhaust do i get?

    Do i get a 96+GSR exhaust or do i get a 96-00 Civic exhaust?
    i ave heard different things from diff people, but nothing concrete yet
    ( so i came here to you guys fo advice ) :) :)

    I already know which one i want: Apexi W2 Catback Exhaust
    but i need help in picking the exhaust system that will fit my Hybrid....

    Help me !!!!!! please.... :confused:

    also, would a 96-00 Civic HB exhaust fit my Hybrid????

    thanks...

    which exhaust

    you need to get the exhaust for your car and not your swap. Then just connect the two. Because the cat-back is not going to go all the way to your header so this section inbetween the two will be little pipe.

    ????

    if you have a HB then yes ...just get the exhaust for your car. another might fit but end up hitting something while your driving or be to close to the floor and burn something

    From the exploded view, they LOOK similar, but i cant comment one way or the other. Here are the two stock versions.

    2dr EX
    Honda Automotive Parts

    3dr CX
    Honda Automotive Parts

    But the part numbers dont match.



    Which exhaust are you looking at?

    i was looking at the Apexi WS NOIR exhaust for the Civic HB
    -------http://www.apexi-usa.com/product_exhaust_detail.asp?id=259&pageNum=1----------

    they dont have it for the Civic EX yet...

    so since the GSR one is not an option, im left with the Apexi WS II for the 96-00 civic ex
    ---------http://www.apexi-usa.com/product_exhaust_detail.asp?id=176&pageNum=1--------

    they both sound the same, i just wanted the black powder coat all the way through....

    well apexi and tanabe are only out because rsr sounds so much better...... i think that apexi WS II sounds louder than Tanabe so i guess in order would be rs*r------tanabe------apexi. do you agree?

    this would make a great poll question.......

    which are the top 3 quietest performance exhaust systems on the market?

    rsr exmag and apexi ws are definitely at the very top on quiet exhaust.

    all of my friend's exhausts are really loud if they have something other than those two.

    invidia is REALLY loud, fyi.
