    my friend has a HKS 16G turbo on his accord 92 F22A1 and he got a BOV but we think its working at all cuz of all the Turbo Lag. he is getting when he 30-60 its like if he had no turbine what can prevent turbo lag

    hey I got a OBX high power series B16 but looks more like a B17 High power round muffler with straight cut tip.....except one lil problem when I weld it on it sounded beautifull for like three days i mean it had a nice base sound in it....but three days later it started to sound different like if it had a hole on the exhaust pipe....but no hole at all, all i can see is the welding changed color but no air leakor sound coming out of it. what do you think changed the sound?

    I wasn't trying to be a dick. I thought it was a legit question. I don't understand why people have their buddies go online and ask car questions for them. He should just sign up for a screen name and come on here himself and ask his own questions. He'll probably get better responses that way rather than constantly going through you...

    As for your muffler, is it cheap, or is it name-brand? If it was a cheap one that then the resonating material is probably breaking down inside it. That would explain the extra noise...
