    I really can't take the straight pipe any more, and am considering buying a stock si muffler, but I want the car to have a mildly aggressive sound. I hate the look and sound of huge mufflers, so I was wondering if anyone has experience with what the stock muffler sounds like after a swap(ls) with a header.

    If you want a quiet exhaust with a mildly aggressive sound, go with an Apex'i WorldSport.

    A stock Si muffler is gonna sound like a stock Si.

    I had an RS*R ExMag on my 89 B20/VTEC / built GSR hatch.

    My roommate has a WorldSport on his H22 EK hatch.


    They both sounded DAMN near identical.

    Both of them had a bit too large of a tip for my taste, however the RS*R's tip was a little larger, but not much.

    The only difference? The RS*R has black piping, and is about $100-$150 more, depending on where you buy it.


    I just ordered an exhaust for my CRX about a week ago....I went with the WorldSport. The RS*R just isn't worth the extra $150 for the same exact sound, IMO. The only difference I'm gonna have to deal with is the big shiny canister, which a can of high-temp flat black paint will fix.

    The cheapest ive seen the rsr exmag is for $500 shipped.
    at www.morepowerracing.com
    I bought it for the stocker look, being on a crx, having the black piping and muffler is a good thing in virginia when driving a honda. Anti-pig exhaust.

    yeah but I can only dream of those, 17 working part time makes a $500 exhaust kind of difficult. sorry i forgot to mention the budget. So even with a swap and header it would be almost silent? I don't really want it loud but I don't want it to sound stock either.

    go to a muffler shop then.. have them bend you some 2- 2 1/4 piping and put a dynomax muffler.. they're pretty quiet

    it'll probably run bout $250

    I have the stock exhaust on my b16 swap into a 91 hatch. It basically sounds stock except for the headers. Nobody will hear you coming. Very low key. How much power will you lose out on going back to stock exhaust?

    okay.........eg6sir is right on the money exept i would add atleast two 18" resonators and try to keep the pipe as straight as possible....forget about bending the back wheel...if you do, get a step up pipe to compensate for the crush........


    but i would just save for the rsr exmag.....
