Well I finally got some videos of my car with my exhaust setup thanks to Duck617. I have an startup and rev video and an acceleration video as well as a video of his start up and rev. He has Smalser PCD/Jpipe combo and a custom Magnaflow catback I believe, but don't quote me on that.

Here are the vids.
The first one is Duck617's car NOTE: this isn't my car.


Alright here are the one's of mine. I honestly am not fond of the first vid.


And here is my Accel Vid:


LMK what you guys think!

It sounds nice bro i got the same setup but it gets old in a while you want it to be louder thats why im getting rid of the borla and im going custom catback now.... But isnt bad is just to quiet for me after a while plus borla is like 2.25 inch piping...

We have to do that again bro it was a good opportunity to meet up. Car sounds really good. I like the first one the borla is so quite, but that piping just goes to small for me.

I put my V2 PCDs on last night, but ran into a seized bolt on the test pipe, so the V1 j pipe will have to wait til I can get it up to meineke. Oh and I also have a borla. :D Can't wait to hear what it sounds like, but as for now, she still sits on jackstands. But jsut for fun last night I turned her on with just the PCDs, just to hear it, and now I will share it with you all! haha

And FYI, the video does it absolutely no justice of how loud it actually is. haha

Yea man I'm definitely down to meet up man. Cherry Hill is right near us. I know I'm going to Florida for a week with my family and I know I get back that weekend, but I'll def want to meet up if at all possible.

Well I got the precats on, and the exhaust back on with the stock j pipe and I am LOVIN the way it sounds. I'm just waitin on the Jpipe to Testpipe gasket from Richie and then I'll take it up to meineke and have em cut the bolt and swap the pipe, cant wait! Its DEF a lot louder than just the Borla, but not ANYwhere near too loud. Real nice sound too, no rasp that I can hear...

Ok, got everything all set and took some videos. Here's my '04 Accord 6-6 with Richie's V2 PCDs, V1 J pipe, Test pipe (3rd cat) and Borla catback. I am IN LOVE with how it sounds. Enjoy.

Hi, I got both PCD+J-pipe and Magnaflow on my accord, the sound goes from low/stage1 > high/stage2 > mid/stage3(vtec).. the screaming sound on stage2 doesn't seem to be happening on your vids, is there anything wrong with my setup?

Its probably MY setup, the Borla is A LOT quiter than the Magnaflow.

One thing I did notice...
In the first vid (turn on and rev) towards the end when I'm revin it higher, theres a sucking sound on the rev down, almost sounds like a BOV. Anyone have any idea what this is? If its bad for the engine?

EDIT: Another thing is, the Borla has smaller piping (2.5 that splits down to like 1.75, i know kinda stupid) but it also has a resonator, mid-muffler and the two mufflers on each end. That might have to do with the differnece in sound.

I'll see if I can get some rolling shots of my car so you can hear the difference. The magnaflow to me has such a nice deep tone to it, mine doesn't scream so much mid-range though. But I'll try and get them up soon.

what you're prob hearing are the butterfly valves in your intake manifold. They open at around 4K RPMS and only accord v6 6 speeds have them. My videos are poor quality and I know I can clearly hear it in my car, but not so much on the videos. All TLs have the butterfly valves in the intake regardless of the trans.

Borla doesnt add much hpor sound to be honest. When I first got it I got made fun of for "getting exhaust that was quieter than stock" hahaha. Now that I have the PCDs and J pipe, I wouldn't have it any other way.
