You can buy silencers that go into the muffler tip.

I think it's called a Butterfly something...can't remember for sure.

I've heard that RSR and Apexi exhausts aren't too loud on a civic.

What exhaust are you currently using by the way?

It'll help to make a better comparison.

I'm running the stock pipe with a Random Technology High Flow- Cat and it actually sounds lower than the stock cat, which makes it less loud/likely to get pulled over.

I like the sound of it. It's a deeper sound and doesn't get very loud compared to others even when VTEC engages.

Performance wise you're not going to see a huge difference with just the exhaust. Maybe a 10hp increase, but that's being pretty optimistic. So I'd just go with whichever you think looks/sounds the best.

id say a flow master system or borla with custom pipe to cat converter that is what i got or you can get the whole kit if there's one for your car and i feel a good hp gain in my 91 accord, it sound quite but a little sporty too, sleeper sound lol
