And NO it sounds nothing like a "ricer". Almost like a V8 but not, it's pretty unique sounding IMO. I have DTLT headers, off road Y pipe, and magnaflow system. Sounds best at 3500 plus RPM. Nice tight quiet rumble at idle. Hardly noticeable even without the Cats.
No rasp above 2k?

The dtlt, urd y, urd 3" exhaust has terrible rasp n/a imho and many others.
what magna system did u get?
Mine sounded like it had a massive fart can on a civic imho.....sounds like u got a better muffler.....size/part # would help others possibly

I know with the urd 3" system, many ppl run 2 mufflers or a resonator.

Do u have sound clip?

Excuse my ignorance, but the stock manifold looks relitively efficient. Has anyone just deleted the cats and compared those gains to these since would be the fairest way. I'm debating on cutting the back two cats out my self is why i ask to see what gains are to be had if any.

anyone have an answer for the aforementioned question about the cats? i did see a write up by chris4x4 i think, on scavenging, and how everything in the stock exhaust is harmonious and such, but it would reduce the back pressure quite a bit to remove some cats and as long as the pipe size and shape is the same should be beneficial in theory.
