hey let us know how your OBX exhaust runs,
my buddy was thinking of getting one.
I've had it on since last August and only have GREAT things to say about it. Great sound, performance, and quality.

Anway, on to my question. Does anyone know if the OBX Exhaust actually adds power? Is there a dyno sheet kicking around on here for it?

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Nick, I would think that expanding the main cat-back pipe diameter and taking away one resonator (Which only OBX does, all others keep 2 resonators) would help with exhaust flow while still keeping good backpressure and thus increasing horsepower. May not be 10-12 horsepower like many exhaust companies claim, but surely between 3-5 respectfully. A dyno sheet would be nice, but on the butt dyno it certainly feels more free than stock.

You are not alone my friend. The intake sound from the J30A1 is awesome, much nicer than the newer A4/A5. Not saying the newer J30s don't sound good with intakes, they certainly do. And yes, the exhaust seems to sound better with the newer motors. The intake manifold is different, the headers are cast into the head so no headers, the j-pipe, pre-cats, etc. are all different too.

coupeblack that sounds great, but for some reason i was kinda of wanting a little rasp or like pop(ive never had this feeling)
February 22nd, 2009 08:02 PM
Sonnick That sounds great! Ugh I need a damn exhaust.
February 21st, 2009 04:47 PM
mbr311 Nice...pretty close to how my setup sounds actually. I just need to borrow someone's damn video camera.

They heated the bends and pulled it into place. once it was at the desired height and space apart, they adjusted the hangars to fit.

Here's a sound clip, although it does no justice to how good it sounds in person!!!

You have this one too? If you told me before I forgot. Even the choice of resonator placement and pipe diameter are perfect on this exhaust. I love it. Sound clips coming soon hopefully!

NHB_AV6-6 Nice. Back when I had my Integra I also bought an OBX catback for it. It was a couple inches too short, and I had to replace the hangers because the stock ones could not stretch

OBX-R Exhaust finally fixed!

I took advantage that I was in Miami this past weekend to visit my old friend's shop Miami Muffler. He got me fixed for $25.00. With some heat and some custom hangers, my OBX-R catback finally fits the way it should of been made to begin with!!!

BEFORE


AFTER


I love this exhaust for sound at every RPM level, quietness, and performance. This was the only flaw and I am happy it's now taken care of I highly recommend this guy's shop for any custom exhaust work. He's been around for a while and has even done turbo setups.
