    eh. not much that you'll be able to tell in a honda.
    the quality is probably a bit better. better metals, and much better welds.

    dont, for the love of god, allow somebody to cut the cat flanges off and weld in pipe. if you are going to do a straight pipe then get one thats a bolt in replacement of the cat. that way, when you get busted you can easily put it back before you get charged with a felony.

    lol, you'll never actually notice the small amount of power it frees up.
    it will give you slightly better fuel economy though.

    and i doubt anybody has actually been charged with a felony for this. but, you could be. the emissions systems are federally mandated.

    its like putting on a cold air intake. you'll never actually feel the 5-ish hp it gives you.

    Theres honestly not much of a reason to straight pipe unless you are making decent power and the restriction frok the cat seems to be holding you back.
