i need a louder exhaust... i bought the magnaflow, and am pissed with it! has no sound, and it taps my spring on every **** bump!!!

Any ideas? i have heard the strup on youtube, but cant really judge it because the magnaflow on youtube sounds better, but in person not so much. I have also heard the trd on youtube... just want a louder tone (but not civic loud)
:mad:

I have the dual Borla which is about 6 db louder than OEM. Supposedly the single Borla is 9 db louder than stock. Can't say how they compare to the Magnaflow or others out there.

Just admit it Philty, you want to be "civic" loud. It's nothing to be ashamed of, Honda makes good cars. :)

Without the resonator it will be loud! Do a youtube search, you should find something you like. I just wish the youtube sound quality was more accurate...

Ricer ! hahaha, just giving you a hard time. removing the resonator wont make it too loud. i thought the magnaflow did that. hmmm i think i am going dual myself, maybe the fireball.

Hahahahaha! I used to have a 96 civic lx my sis has an 06 and my bro has a 95 integra. He just put a skunk 2 exhaust and new headers and a high flow cat and its stupid loud! I never did any work to my civic because I live really close to philly and it was way to easy to steal! I just want louder but not stupid loud. I may try the resonator and if I don't like it ill put it back on.

Toyotas are better, you fool. And Scions are the "best" of the various Toyota makes/models!

back on topic of exhausts... I have the Strup Cat-back and weapon-r s pipe, as well as strup header. I really like the sound, it's loud when I want it to be, and quiet when I'm cruising.

I am in the same boat you are, just about anyway. I am looking into the Strup as well and Fast Scions advertises it as a Cat back, while others list is as a Axel back.

I wish someone made a "Sport" style rather than a can. Something along the lines of the Tanabe Medalion or Greddy Spectrum for other than the XB. The Xb versions just look like an overpriced piece of pipe.

The strup goes from the scuba tank back, as I recall.
