HKS Hi-Power Exhaust. No Resonator. Custom bent Piping. STILL have the cat.

I do NOT really like the positioning of the end muffler/tip...i may reroute it to the left side with more piping..or angle it more towards the right. What do you think?

What does it sound like? More important, do you like the way it sounds?

exhaust system

I just got don installing a very cool exhaust system on my 09 EX.
I was the Dynomax Performance Exhaust man for 32 years , just recently I retired.
From the cat back 2 inch custom mandrel bent pipe.
24 inch long magnaflow SS resanator 2 inch
Dynomax ultraflow SS 2 inch muffler
Vibrant Very good quality Tip 2 inch.
All welded and flat banded SS Clamps.

You need to configure the system as closest possible to the origional, if not it will be very noisy.
With exhaust, K & N Filter or CAI if I could find one that fits, and a performance chip ( if there is one for an 09). No doubt the horsepower/performance would increase by 10 plus percent.

Looks great,but I also think it would look better angled to the right a bit. How about a video? I'd sure like to hear it.:)

Angle it up and to the right, give it the hks civic si, subi wrx/sti style, I think a little upwards tilt always looks better with a coffee can style exhaust, your setup the shop did just looks as that, an exhaust job by a shop that wanted to get it off their lift fast, hows it sound though?

agreed on the idea ot angle it to the right, anyway you could get notch made in your bumper so you could have it a bit closer to car, when they are almost completely visable it looks like they are just stuck on

Ty for the compliments and erthang else..got a couple compliments already at school today so I'm happy..I love the sound..I took a vid but following the speed limit I got to a whopping 20 mph..I like the suggestion of up and to the right..looking under though there seems to be little wiggle room to do so..guessin a lol extra pipe downwards and angled..I think it's proportianallu perfect for my ride

Did anyone notice when he sets the camera down he stole the scene from transformers of the decepticon on mars being taken by the satelite car thing, I call for copy right enfringment.
The drive bye sounded decent, but after hearing the reving video, I would be stuffing it with potatoes while your sleeping if I was your neighbor.
Mobile potato gun, now that would be sweet!!!

Not hating, just playin'. And I wouldn't want to be you, lol. Are you gonna have it re-angled? Did the exhaust come with a silencer? I ask because those come in handy on long trips, just so the drone does not drive you insane.

Sound pretty good, even though the phone was too close. When I did a sound clip of my Injen exhaust, I had the mic taped to the bumper right above the tip-too much "rattle".
