I have a huge and very loud muffler on my 95 Honda civic now with catback exhaust and im looking for something quiter with a good tone at the same time. I thought about gettin a hi flow cat at the same time. Just need some recomendatoins on ppls mufflers lol, also what is the best way to lower my car and it still ride good at a decent price, it has 17s now and looks like it has a body lift lol, are the ebay coilovers that are around 40 bucks a waste? thanks for any replys!

If you want quiet be prepared to dish out a good $500+ for exhaust.

Dang....well I want to keep my catback on there I just want a new muffler, im thinkin this will help a little, It doesnt have to be quiet quiet, just quieter than what it is now cuz its nothing but a racket....I figure the hi flow cat will make it louder too right? Any hp gains? Its a single cam Jdm D15 and its really weak I gotta do somethin to it

Both loud
smaller= louder
Stock is the best option for quiet IMO
You can just do a B pipe and headers

R u serious? I mean they would have to be quieter than mine, I gurantee it weighs 40 lbs, those have silencers wouldnt that help a tad bit?

The heaviest thing itself is the stock headers, they are cast iron.
If you want weight reduction loose the bass ;)
The silencers help but they are still loud

for suspension... $200 can get you an ok set of springs but the shouldn't be used with stock struts. It's best not to cheap out on aftermarket parts... but especially something so important

For a honda think 5zigen or Apex'i WS... everyone i've talked to has liked the WS catback... its a low growl instead of your average, ricer, bees in a coffee can sound...

if you dont want to spend much on a exhaust system id say go to a local muffler shop and have them make a cat back system for ya shouldnt cost more then about 160 using quality stuff. on my car they gave me a smaller series flow master and 2 1/2in pipes for 180 installed. It sounds nice and low not loud at all. i hate the lawnmower sounding crap

Okay if all you want is a quieter muffler, go to a local shop and have em weld on a flowmaster muffler, one of the quieter series... i think its the 60 series. Has a nice throaty sound without being obnoxiously loud. My buddy has a 40 sereis on his 240sx (40 series is louder tahn 60) and it sounds sexzor. Its not exactly quiet inside, my pacesetter is louder inside the cabin, but not deafening. 60 series should be right up your alley.
