They'll probably fit but you do know those are for 6th generation Accords right?

Talking

buy these-

have a local exhaust shop cut off the exhaust tips of your stock mufflers and weld them onto the comptech mufflers. be sure you cover the "face" of the mufflers where the tips will be welded on. do this so the welding spray won't get on your new shiny mufflers. i made the mistake of not covering them before the tips got welded on, and i wish i had. i'm not sure what to cover them with. maybe just cardboard with the circle cut out in the middle of the muffler for the tip to go on? i guess masking tape would also work.
...anyway, the sound is very cool, but i also have my pre-muffler and resonator cut out and straight pipe welded there in place. it's way deep sounding and i get compliments on it.

Any chance you can post a sound clip or video??? This sounds like it might be a nice alternative for those not wanting to drop ~$800 on an exhaust with negligable power gains.

i ask because someone locally is selling them, so I'm wondering if it's worth it or not. He's selling it for approx 180USD for both mufflers w/tips (not ordering, so i dun have to pay for shipping since local seller)

btw, u got any pics?

I'm going to install these mufflers w/no pre muffler to increase some sound. My question is that if i remove the resonator, will that effect the "quality" of sound? I've been reading throughout the forums, and it seems if u remove the resonator, u can sometimes get that RICE or BEE HIVE kind of sound w/the deep tone. true? i just want deep and clean, none of that distortion.

RESONATOR REMOVED = RICEY or BEEHIVE sound distortion as background noise ? If so, i'll just keep the deep sound w/the resonator since i don't want xtra distortion. Any input?

ehh...ricey sound? hmm i don't think there is a ricey sound. it just sounds "flippin sweet" as napoleon dynamite might say.
edit: i think the price is fair in my opinion.

hmm, had a friend w/just the mufflers, sounds good enuf, he said don't bother removing resonator, it'll just sound like a riced out accord. Loud and annoying, deep tone, but sometimes not CLEAN deep tone.

COMPTECH MUFFLERS



Finally got them installed, and they're GREAT! Highly recommended, very affordable. Tips are 3.5 inch btw, bought separately

PROS:

1.Sounds clean/deep w/g35 sound but even cleaner and a bit deeper, especially around 2-3.5 RPM, u start to hear a very nice throaty growl
2. Easy fit, shop only need to make 2 small little axlebacks to fit into stock piping
3. VERY CLEAN looking, muffler fits like a glove like stock muffler

CONS:

1.IDLE, only slightly louder than stock when idle. More of a purr.
2. Make sure your there when u install, lots of tweeking to get perfect fit. I fitted it just slightly ABOVE what the stock mufflers were set cause i found the stock tips to be too low in the bumper, so i raised it.

OVERALL: BUY IT! you won't be disappointed gaurantee. And if u want it to be loud, u can always just cut out the resonator, but I honestly thing it's PERFECT right now, any louder would be too much, cause when i drive, i can hear the growl inside the car.

The best part, it LOOKS SOOO CLEAN! no xtra muffler face showing, a must have if u want a nice CLEAN look.

Total, it cost me $250 USD (includes installation price, 1.5hrs of work)AFFORDABLE UPGRADE

110 w/shipping? now that's pretty good. Did those come w/tips too? cause ebay sells them for 90+ plus shipping w/out tips. I live in canada, shipping is expensive also.

u should have no problem, they just drown out sound, just don't take out your CAT! Removing your resonators will not effect your inspection, your resonators are just volume controllers for the sound coming out of your exhaust.

hmm i dont know but i figure it would since our car is a ultra low emissions vehicle so with the two other cats i dont know why it wouldnt. but so am i correct to assume that with the removal of the 2 extra resonators that you do not encounter the engine malfunction light that comes on when there is a malfunction in the exhaust/emissions system. I have heard stories of this happening with cat removal/modification and was wanting to make sure of this before i did it.

no you're cool if you remove the pre-muffler and resonator. no errors for me and it's been 6 months at least with them both removed.

how would u rate the LOUDNESS of your exhaust? Does it hum loud @ idle? Mine is just BARELY louder than stock @ idle, but when i drive, i get a "moderate" growl/hum. IS your just hella loud ? I'm debating if i should remove my premuffler, but i dont' want it screaming around town attracting the 5-0. Can peeps here you like 2 blocks away when u drive?

$ilverbullet, no it's not screaming loud at all. it's really just a deep, sexy sound. a friend of mine w/ an '05 rsx type-S had a greddy evo catback and my car was a little bit louder than his, but not by alot. it's not going to be insanely loud if that's what you're afraid of.

250 includes 2 mufflers. Not catback, as per forum topic.

2 comptech mufflers + 2 3.5inch tips + installation = $250

Had to go affordable, catback too expensive, it'll be cheaper to do custom, cause that's what i'm doing, looks like, i'm gonna remove my premuffler soon then, i got one of my friends to drive my car while i was outside, u cant' really hear it, but when your inside the cabin, it actually sounds louder, weird.

Hi,

How much does the Comptech muffler weigh?

I was thinking of trying these mainly for the weight savings:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WD1V

They weigh only 5 lbs. each, you will probably save 30 lbs. when you install these. Probably the best you can do until someone makes a titanium cat back system for the Accord.

Any one has any experience with the Megan exhaust?

Thanks for any input you can give.

problem with those canisters, since they arn't wide, u might get a higher pitch tone, compared to a wider canister, still low, but not as low as the comptech. I don't know the exact weight of the canister, but it was smaller than the stock, i believe it's only maybe a few pounds less @ most. That's usually the generic rule, but there are exceptions of course.

That is what I was told by the vendor: 5lbs.

They are made of Cabon fiber and Titanium and list for $150 each, ebay: $96 each.

If someone made a full titanium cat-back I would consider buying it.
