I've had mine for about a month, and I absolutly LOVE it. The sound is deep, yet not very loud. Not to mention that Comptechs dynograph claims about 13 wheel horsepower just from a simple catback. The power difference is noticed immediatly after VTEC kicks in, and what a great sound it makes!

Comptech is definelty a thumbs up, and it truly stands second to NO ONE.

I love my Comptech. It growls nicely at idle, and sreams at wide open throttle. It does drone a little at about 2K rpm. It is not too loud but just loud enough. My only complaint is that the tips are hidden under the rear lip kit (honda oem). Hardtopguy.com is supposed to get me new cans with larger tips that are slightly longer. Comptech is awesome. Good luck with yours. I have a few pics in my gallery.

I agree totally. I was terrified to spend so much.. but now
I :bowdown: to comptech exhaust..

it rocks.. it's pricey but you will be very happy once you have it. The sound is aggressive when you want it to be and mellow when cruising.. I have pics in my gallery as well.. Oh, in my humble opinion, i also think it Looks the best of all the options out there.. but thas just me :D
Good Luck!

lata, joey

I've had the Comptech exhaust since 7Feb05 (approx 2K miles driven) and I've got nothing but great things to say about it! It is the best sounding exhaust from idle to redline that I've heard with the stock intake. It is expensive...but worth every penny in my book. I'm going to do a baseline dyno on my car on Wednesday afternoon so I'm curious to find out what kind of numbers I'll get.

This is a badazz exhaust system!!!! :D

Hey fly, are you going to be getting a CAI anytime?
Wassup kramer...the CAI isn't a high priority for me right now. I'm curious to see what kind of dyno numbers I get with the Comptech exhaust before I move on to the engine mods. If anything...I'm saving $$$$ for the supercharger if and when it comes out! :(

Do you have a CAI in your ride?

Yeah, that was my first mod. It built some confidence having been my first ever mod to a car. Previous cars were pieces of SHAT. I assumed a CAI was the first mod most people do, but not you and your clean ass ride. Keep it up though, yours is one of my personal favorites. :up2:

Thanks for the props man! :D

Well...I got my baseline dyno done today at JBA Racing Performance Center in San Diego. Did 2 runs using Dyno Dynamics Dynamometer, 4th gear, no fans, 57 deg F, 91 octane...

1st run (TCS ON):

216.4 whp @ 6524 rpms
184.0 trq @ 3987 rpms

2nd run (TCS ON):

216.8 whp @6452 rpms
187.0 trq @ 3987 rpms

According to the dyno tech, there is a 17% parasitic loss to the wheels for the 6 speeds...so he told me that my flywheel hp (fwhp) is:

216/.83 = 260 fwhp
187/.83 = 225 trq (do you use the same denominator for torque?)

Stock numbers advertised are 240 hp/212 tq for the V6.

Bottom line? With the dyno used above, this proves that the Comptech exhaust not only sounds good but also gives our cars a decent gain in power. :D

Now that I have a baseline number to work with...should I get the Injen RD or AEM V2 CAI? Or wait for the Comptech S/C? :confused:

wow nice numbers =) That's great!

I think you should wait for the comptech s/c or at least the comptech icebox =)
