He wants to be like the 1987 Buick Grand National in the movie "Born2Race" and his dad (Frank Kruger) drove.

I've got this little gem on my 2013 N/A





Its still way quieter than a Civic when open but my car does pull harder with it. Its like a jackhammer to the brain below 3000 RPM though. Also does cool backfire noises when I shift close to limiter. However I still have my catalyst in place... for now.

Got mine from a friend for free, then bought him lunch to put it on. I have my stock exhaust in place and put it just before the first muffler. There's about 8-12 inches of pipe after the flex pipe before the cutout.

Downside is it does rattle a bit from cold start ups. After about a mile it goes away.

Before install.



Went right in front of this muffler.



Cheers!

I'll be running an svt header with a badlandz electronic cut out.. I won't be N/A eventually. But I don't want loud exhaust. I don't want a fart can.. as far as cops..I'll hit the button close it and say it was the other guy....

Keep the noise inside the pipe where it belongs instead of lowering yourself to some Honda running a fart-can.
