Listen to your car the next time you get in it. If the noise is coming from the rear of your car (and i'm sure it is) your exhaust is causing the noise. I'd personally get a stock exhaust for the 2010 civic SI which sound sweet whenever you punch it but when your just driving it's pretty quite. The headers increase your power getting rid of back pressure as your exhaust valves open. A cold air intake brings colder denser air to your engine also improving power but neither the headers or cold air intake will affect your sound much.

The muffler I mentioned earlier is the one on my EK hatch you can get it at the link below. The refernce number I got were 13, 14, 6, 30. You might also want 24 and 29 to cut some more noise down.
