Don't forget a good resonator, or be prepared to enjoy the buzz of a bad Civic exhaust.

And note, a straight-through muffler is not a resonator, even if it's round. If the resonator doesn't ding like a bell when you tap it, it's not a resonator.

Too bad you already ordered your cat -- MagnaFlow makes catalytic converters with a resonated core, takes care of both the sound tone and the emissions quality with one piece of equipment.

Which Magnaflow cat did you get? I've been curious about their new high flow performance design.

i think its the 53006? http://www.car-sound.com/02product/universal/530.asp

ill let you know how the whole system preforms and such, too bad im not doing just the cat or i could tell you how JUST that part preformed but i figured if im going to do one peice i should do the whole thing

Magnaflow cat + Magnaflow muffler, same as my setup :bigthumbu Definitely get a resonator mines pretty loud and gets raspy at higher load/RPMs.

ill try and get one, or even a vid on youtube like everyone else!!! lol but im going to need to find a video camera

i have liked magnaflow since my dad had it on his SVO mustang and his 95 GT, i had a catback dynomax on my jeep which was pretty good too

yeah ill make sure its tight once the shop gets done with it, im just going to have them throw everything together and weld it so it doesnt come loose and i dont have to worry about the stupid U clamps coming loose and giving me an exhaust leak.
