It seems that the companies whose primary customer base has been with domestic cars (MagnaFlow, Borla) have been more aggressive in releasing parts for our cars than the usual companies like Greddy, and Comptech

Magnaflow is definitely a quality exhaust system. Although a company that caters to domestic cars primarily. I have heard their exhaust systems on Honda and on a VW and they sound awesome, have quality construction and if I am not mistaken are full stainless systems. I will consider them depending on how outrageous Comptech prices their system for the 03 AV6.

Great quality, horrible look.
On the RSX Type-S the magnaflow catback came with a 5" tip, not a 4, not a 4.5 but 5!!! They even supplied different hangers cause it used to melt the bodykit.
Looks wise it was horrible, like an APC muffler or something, but quality and sound wise, pretty nice.
I'm getting Tanabe

The Magnaflow for the Accord does not look like the RSX exhaust. It has more of a Comptech appearance than the can look. go to their site and click photo where the 03 accord exhqaust part number is. I think it looks pretty good.

There is a seller who is offering a group buy on the 6th gen exhaust and selling them for 340.00 shipped. check the exhaust section of this site and you will find him. I am waiting for him to respond to the thread, I asked him for a group buy on 7th gen and I am awaiting a price. I beileve he is awaiting a shipment of the 7th gen currently. For under 400.00, it is a no brainer. I like the look of the new borla, but for the money the magnaflow looks better with full polished mufflers and the CLS style tips. They also have sound clips on the website. www.magnaflow.com&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">

looks like the companies that were notorious for their domestic car parts are getting more involved with the import scene...

The Magnaflow fits the 7th gen sedan!!! Borla does not and Comptech surely won't. A group buy from the guy organizing the 6th gen GB would be much appreciated.

I emailed him and he is still waiting for delivery of the 7th gen system. The part number is 15800 and the price I was quoted was 375.00 shipped! I will give you guys a heads up as soon as I hear something or get mine ordered.

The one thing that has been asked over and over again, but never answer is "What about the rear bumper on the sedans? There are no cutouts for the tips." What do we do?

I would definitely be in, if we had a solution to the above ??.

I'm pretty sure that you'd have to have a muffler shop modify the angle of the piping at the tip for turndowns...

What grade of stainless steel does Magnaflow use?

I believe they use 400 series but I'm not certain. 400 series is the least expensive stainless steel available which would explain why the price of their system is so low. 400 series stainless steel is also more susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. Click this link if you're interested in reading a NASA document on the susceptibility of 400 series stainless to stress corrosion cracking.

http://npoesslib.ipo.noaa.gov/techlib/doc147/doc147.pdf

400 series stainless steel is known as a Martensitic stainless steel. Martensitic stainless steels of the 400 series are more susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. 300 series stainless steel is known as Austentitic stainless steel. Austentitic stainless steels of the 300 series are resistant to stress corrosion cracking.

Most aftermarket exhaust manufacturers use 300 series stainless which is more durable but also more expensive. The price of the materials directly relates to the price of the end product.

Its simple. Either modify the exaust or cut the holes in the bumper. Do you guys NEVER just go make your own exaust systems or what?

david, I am going with the magnaflows because They keep the same pipe size as stock that is 2.25 I believe(This is a very important issue as far as HP/TQ is concerned!). I'm not sure the exact size of your exhaust pipe, but judging from the looks, I'd say its less than stock. Now I'm also going with the magnaflow because it has the exact same sound as the comptech exhausts. I'm not planning to keep the car longer than 5-10 years so corrosion is not really a concern for me.
