Gauging interest for COMPTECH MUFFLERS

I wanted to buy the Comptech stainless-steel flow-through mufflers, but I couldn't find them for sale anywhere. So I went ahead and emailed Comptech, to see if I could purchase a set for my Accord. In the ensuing conversation I learned that it was a one-time order of 100 mufflers.

I was bummed.



After bugging the spokesperson at Comptech every day, today he sends me an email that says that he will try to get an order of 100 more of the mufflers approved.
These are the same mufflers that are talked about in the Exhaust Comparison *VIDEO* thread and sound like a G35.

The price would be about $75 per muffler (or $150 for two for those who suck at math). I told him I would try to find more people interested so that the order can be justified!

I know people on here want them, and now they have the chance to get in on this deal!

If there is enough interest, I might even be able to arrange a group buy to save some money. I will ask the spokesperson if he would be willing to do that.

But for now just say if you are interested, and I will try to get something worked out!


Thanks!

Are the mufflers just purely for looks and sound? Or is there any gains involved.. I've seen the one vid in the other thread.. From that vid it's hard to tell if it's the mufflers or the intake ur hearing.. Anyway to get some sounds clips at the rear of the car? This does seem like a good option though.. I would have to say for that price I would be interested..

The gains are negligible, but the sound great!
I'm sick of my sorry sounding stock exhaust!

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

Nah I'm not gonna buy 100 for this site.

He said the order would be for 100, but they would sell them on eBay.

(not 100% positive, I'll find out tomorrow)

This might be a dumb question, but do these include the tips? If not, how much for the Comptech tips and where can I buy them?

No,

And skip on the comptech tips, they're for sale for 40 bucks +shipping sporadically on ebay, so ur better off just getting some generic Stainless steel ones in the muffler shops

I find it a little weird that Comptech is willing to do this because it seems that this would take away from sales of their regularly high-margin axle back systems, but anyways, good job on putting this together!

Maybe we should pass this thread to other accord/cl/tl forums. I'm sure there will be more than enough people who wants it.

The issue is that, comptechmachine sold out of them, and doesn't plan on ordering anymore in the future, because they've switched canister styles.
