Tsudo n1 exhaust today!

hey everyone, I don't really post much but i'm a very frequent visitor. anyways long story short I had a 1998 d16y8 civic, supercharged, the works... sold it cash and got me a 2001 yellow zx3. well that was in oregon and here I am living in florida 4 months later and I got the mod bug again. So the other day 15 minutes and almost $700 later I am starting to get parts in. Please excuse the very poor pictures, the digital camera I was going to use is outta batteries so I just used my camera phone (the free one I got with my plan).... so far I have only gotten time to put on the projector headlights, CAI, and the exhaust i'm going to do tuesday. also I read a lot that no one really has seen good pics or a sound clip of the TSUDO N1 exhaust, and i'll gladly to volunteer to be the guinne pig on that. anyways future mods for next week are fadenza adjustable cam gears, 75 shot nitrous express wet kit, and hopefully an invador or kamanari CF hood. week after that i'm gunna get some adjustable suspension and drop er down a couple inches... finally to top it off i'll get a nice dyno n' tune and then on to get me some nice enkei's with toyo 4's! thanks again everyone for everything!!

lmao well to tell you the truth I didn't want to get rid of my civic but this last january it was winter in oregon and that car wouldn't of been able to drive down here to florida thru the snow (it sat 1/4" off the ground)... at first I was drivin around town and just saw this yellow foci sitting there on the corner and I was like wow I should get that, walked in and bought it for about 4 thousand. Originally this car was to get me to FL on good gas mileage and I was going to buy another civic (don't hit me) but anyways I liked it more and more every day. It was funny, my civic, they put a rope around it, had a spotlight next to it and had my strobes, interior and exterior lights turned on almost 24/7.. funny thing is the underbody burned out after about a week of them constantly being on, even during the day which I thought was not the smartest thing.

UPDATE : I got my tsudo n1 catback exhaust (2.5" 3pc) today and put er on. while installation was pretty easy, once on I wanted to take the tip resonater out, which was actually designed pretty neat, it could be adjustable. I had to take an airsaw to it to get it out though, while the 4" tip is 'almost' rice at least it doesn't look like a fartcan. As for sound I can put up a soundclip once I have time, it didn't change much from the stock exhuast with aftermarket second muffler as this tsudo system adds a resonator and keeps 1 muffler so it pretty much evened out, but still it has that deep cat-back tone throughout the rpm range. Also I'd like to let you know this system is NOT AT ALL raspy, I was worried about this and almost kissed the ground after I drove it and had no rasp. Well hope this helps as i've hardly seen any of these on, like I said pics coming soon :)

oh btw though on a sidenote, this setup I have is still with the stock header/flexpipe

Exactley. lol, I ditched my cat when I got my 4,2,1 long tube header. Then I cut out the factory lunch box muffler, and run just resonator now. It sounds KILLER!. You'll love that long tube header w/ no cat. I DO!!!
