At idle it sounds like a Ricer. Driveby didn't sound to bad. But over $400 for 5 HP & 4 ftlbs. Seems like a waste of money to me.

should have just saved up for a cheap turbo kit. stock block, stock exhaust with a small turbo will give you much more power, an un-ricey exhaust note, and quick spool up.

Yea adding a cat back to a slow car just to add a cat back seems ricey to me

Not feeling this...

Will attract attention to something that doesn't really deserve it. The difference will not show reasonable improvement. (pretty ricer-ific)

Not worth the money. Plus I'm against loud exhaust.

Just my .02 though :)

idk if you really want to put a turbo on this car. the pistons are short so i think they could blow easy. now if i had the Vtec version in this car i might because they are alot longer

A new car, maybe? If you wanted ANY sort of power, you shouldnt have bought a Civic. They make what? 50 ft/lbs at most?

I didnt mean it to sound mean, just saying how I feel. What year Civic is it? I would say either trade it in for something a little faster, or just chill with it and leave it stock and enjoy your 35 mpg or w/e they get.

my advice

Goto a honda forum and ask people who do nothin but buy hondas and work on them. On here your going to here the same ****. Car is slow buy a different one, blah blah, ricer exhaust, blah blah

Not likely to get any real good feedback from this site about a civic. If your going exhaust systems dont cheap out, and i hate magnaflow. People have them on z32s around here and they sound like pure *** to me.

So just leave it stock for those few months, thats what I would do anyways. What do you plan on getting after that?

They are a pretty good choice honestly. I have been looking for a new car myself, but have settled on the Mazdaspeed3. The raw power is worth more than the subtle refinement the GTI offers. And the GTIs are a little more expensive. I was looking for more of a crazy powerful car though. Honestly, I think the GTI is a great hatch, and it would definitely give you the performance you are hoping to get out of your econobox Civic.

The best bang for the buck modification is an intake, it'll make more power for you than an exhaust, and it's 1/3 the price.
Check out honda-tech.com and clubcivic.com.
I have an '05 Civic EX, but I'm not modding it, just a stereo system. I have an all motor Integra GSR build, so I know a bit about modding.

i have magnaflow and its top of the line exhaust for my car. magnaflow is for muscle cars not jap cars. and dont just get an exhaust that wont do anything. get a full exhaust at least from headers down. change out your cam and heads that will give you the most hp/tq without going f/i and it will help down the road if you did want to go f/i

Borla>MagnaFlow

and if your looking at GTIs, you should look into the MK2's
MK1>MK2>MK4>MK6>MK5>MK3
the MK3s are fuggin ugly.

I had one on my hatchback 1999 and I loved it. Smooth sound at cruising and when you laid on the throttle it sounded smooth as well not to loud or annoying. Never had a problem at the inspection station either. Thinking of getting one for my civic now.

Why would you upgrade the inahle without upgrading the exhale. Not a good way to make power correctly.

Tune to like 57hz and play test tones, itl have the same effect and itl be cheaper

I have had a aem v2 intake on my civic for over a year and the stock exhaust no problems. I do need to upgrade the exhaust though.

if you do go with an intake. get a cold air.

and an intake will help with gas mileage. not much but still. and the sound of an after market intake is pretty nice.

Ricer. Magnaflow isnt for ****** imports.

Add stickers. They add more HP than that exhaust will ever.

"****** imports" lol
idk why guys always get on 4 cylinders. i just dont get it.

if you saw me at the track running low 11's all day in an all motor(no turbo, nitrous, or supercharger) h2b crx. im sure you would have nothing to say. cus my 6000 dollar car just smoked a 56000 dollar 7 liter zo6.
and i get better gas mileage:)
