J-pipe + test pipe + stock exhaust

so I've been reading through everyone's exhaust setups and it's making me want the j-pipe and test pipe even more now! question though... how would it sound w/ the stock exhaust? i'll eventually upgrade but i figure i can get those two first since Richie seems to have a promotional discount (i think... still haven't gotten a reply).

A little deeper tone to the car. You'll definitely notice a sounds change...

I had the j-pipe with stock exhaust and it was a bit deeper, wasn't really able to tell a difference IMO. I put the test pipe on with the Borla and the sound was 10x better.

Honestly, get a catback with that setup - it'll net you the most gains by far. With just the j-pipe you get a nice torque bump, but when you add the catback then you gain power up top as well.

I've got a real nice sound right now with 2.25" straight back (no pre-muff or resonator) to the Y into stock mufflers

I have also run my catless setup to a 3 inch straight pipe to a single stock muff and it was quiet as stock..weird...that jus shows you how restrictive the stock muffs are

i'm running that same setup currently and there doesn't seem that much change in volume level when stepping on the gas. i have an AEM cai installed as well as the j pipe/test pipe and there is noticeable growl when going full throttle

hmm, yea i'm going to have to wait until my tax returns if anything.

i know i'll regret saying this now, but i kind of like the exhaust note from the newer civic si's. anyone know what i'm talking about? even at like 2.4-3k rpm you can hear the exhaust pretty well. i just find that there's nothing at all from the stock exhaust, i just want to 'open' it up a bit.

i might do the same thing Accordian did, J-pipe, test pipe, and CL-S mufflers. that sounds suprisingly good. i was hoping if i got the j-pipe and test pipe on stock exhaust it would somewhat resemble that, but i guess not.

Yes. A nice torque bump throughout the RPM range as MBR311 has stated in his 1st post, and a little up top as well.

Along with the j-pipe and test pipe, you could also remove the pre-muffler like Sonnick did, it sounds nice! You should check it out in the exhaust comparison section.

I just had the J-pipe and test pipe installed on my fiancÚ's coupe and as was already mentioned, there's very little difference. I think it sounds a little louder when you're really flooring it but it's still pretty quiet.

On another note, I had the opportunity to drive in a friend's V6 coupe with the Greddy and I was surprised how quiet it was. It was almost stock sounding but a little more refined. Even standing on the outside it was very quiet.

You can go to the Classifieds forum from the homepage of this site, and there will be a Groupbuys section for this.

Haha, I nicknamed by black Accord the Batmobile

Just so you know, I didn't just weld the CL-S mufflers to the stock cat back, so it probably wouldn't sound the same if you did that. I have custom bent piping from the cat back to the CL-S mufflers, no resonator or pre-muffler, plus it's larger diameter piping than stock.

Yes, when you get custom piping it makes a world of a difference! I bet that sounds really good.

ok, so i think i know what i'm doing with my stock exhaust system. i don't think i'm going to spend 900 on a catback system yet.

quick question. if i were to use my stock mufflers and switch out the piping to 2.5", should i change the y-pipe too? y-pipe is what, 1.75"?

I was searching but my thread came up so I figured I can just post here. lol

(btw, accordian, I know you have a bigger piping, but I wonder how the stock mufflers would sound with some custom piping though...)
