Default Exhaust Piping Gains?

Hello all, i have a 1996 acura integra gsr. I was wondering how big of a difference in gains there would be if i were to stick with my 2.25" catback exhaust or switch to a 2.5" catback exhaust. Is it worth the hassle?

Is not worth the hassle. If there is any gain on a 1996 car it will be very little. You need more mods to make a noticeable change, therefore a 10+ year old car, is not worth the effort. It might sound fast but that is as fast it will go,

I depends how deep your pockets are haha and if you wanna spend the money.If you were gonna do it, you should get headers, high flow cat, and 2.5" pipe...I had a 95 Integra and i put it on there and it sounded really nice, along with many other mods...the 4.5" tip was a lil big and made it really loud, I would go smaller like a 3.5" tip if I was you. Mine didn't really sound like an Integra anymore, more like a S2000 or a Supra!!!

Don't bother because the gain will be, at the most, 2 -3 HP.

I mainly agree with everyone else on this. In speaking to many techs over the years- honda (from the factory) makes pretty efficient exhausts/headers. Because of this if you have no/light mods I would reccomend sticking to what you have. If your plans are to eventually increase airflow of the engine through head/pistons/turbo/supercharger- then you will definitely see a difference. In a car like this it seems your money would be better spent somewhere else (coilovers/ better tires)---unless you have big power plans down the road.
