You could try getting a resonated test pipe, or install a resonator to your exhaust system. Pep Boys sells them for like $30.

Yes it will.


Do you have a muffler? or is it straight pipe from the header back.

Yeah throw on the stock exhaust, itll be much better.

Or you can install a muffler and a resonator. Either would be great.

Why in the hell would you do that? lmao.

On my Prelude I ran a cat, resonator and otherwise straight exhaust. Sounded great, wasnt raspy or too loud at all. I also had a H23 in it though, makes a big difference :D

Default Re: STRAIGHT PIPE SILENCER?

so you're running a straight pipe with no muffler, cat, or resonator; it's too loud, and you're wondering if a muffler will make it quieter? did i read that right?

Don't you know what a stock exhaust sounds like?
Of course it will f-n quit it down what dont you get

A stock exhaust has a cat and a muffler why wouldn't it be quit.

header,i call it what i want, if you want to correct my spelling become moderator and start giving people grades on their spelling lol

second, arthas already explained to me that it would help to get a exhaust system...i always thought when people went straight pipe it meant all the way from the header"to the bumper

Default Re: STRAIGHT PIPE SILENCER?

imo a straight pipe is a exhaust system... just one that ignores sound and emissions.

You act like people are talking crazy when the things theyre saying are quite logical. A stock exhaust system uses a cat, resonators and a muffler, of which you say you know what it sounds like. Do u know why it sounds like that? (insert answer) Now do u know(understand) why your system is so loud? (apply logic here) The two systems i just referenced are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Any of the suggestions given will put you somewhere between those two ends.

Now i want to ask. Why go so free flow only to throw on a bottle neck stock muffler on the end? Do you understand what the result could be? If you didnt want it loud you chose an entirely wrong route to go. I went with a stock type r exhaust for this reason. Aside from the suggestions given to you earlier i would read up some more on exhaust size and performance. Theres a really great in depth article on team integra.

If you install a stock exhaust with no cat, it will be louder than stock, but it will be much quieter than it is now.

If you have a high flow cat and a 2.5" exhaust with a twin loop muffler you will have better performance AND lower noise than the system you are proposing.

People use straight pipe exhaust to eliminate flow restrictions, such as: cat, resonator, muffler.
You spent $80 to make you a straight pipe and now you want to pay more to install the flow restriction that was on your car before.
The whole maneuver doesn't make sense.
If you want a muffler, at least get a high flow muffler. Greddy EVO2 and Apexi WS2 sound really well.
This same rule applies to all modifications you are looking to make to your car - cheap pays twice. Better save some money and get a quality part right away. I learned the hard way...

but like i said, i did this to get rid of my old rusted,hanging, clogged cat exhaust system.

so i decided **** it go straight pipe,. im just in the market now for a quieter exhaust tip , {note the title of thread} im trying to keep it straight pipe without the cat so i get better air flow ....
