Default Should I get a new exhaust system installed on my automatic 2000 Honda Civic EX?

I have a 2000 Honda Civic EX. I've heard from many people that putting a new exhaust on it would be stupid due to the fact that it's a 4 cylinder and it's automatic. Would getting an exhaust be worth it? Also, if I get one, what kind of exhaust should I get?

It's your car, don't let people tell you what you should or should not do. There is a HUGE amount of information online with questions just like yours answered with facts and reasons why you should or why you may not need to.

Check out or find your favorite honda forum and join the starter forums. There is tons of information regarding first time upgrades, and how to get started on making your car perform better.

Just from hearing you say "it would be stupid because it's a 4 cylinder" it sounds like whoever said this will not be a reliable source for tips in upgrading your Civic, as they are already making remarks as to the affect that having a 4-cylinder is a bad thing...

For the most part, if you are sticking with a stock motor and not using forced induction, exhaust upgrade is the farthest thing from your priorities for performance. If you just want a nice sound, swapping the exhaust is not a bad idea. Just do not buy a cheap "fart-can" tip or something cheap if you want a decent sound that doesn't just sound like every ricer out there...

Do some research, check out youtube for a decent idea of what different brands sound like.

gReddy makes an awesome exhaust system for your car all the way from the headers to the tip. It may be a bit pricey, but sounds very nice. All-in-all, try not to take too much advice from those who do not know Hondas or work on them... If you do, you'll get what we like to call "haters" telling you what you should and shouldn't do. Go with research. You cannot go wrong.

If you need some starter tips or brand names hit us up on facebook below! We would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Good luck!

Go with the rsr exhaust man there perfect for civics they got that beast rumble sound but not loud like a flow master greddy is good but it'll sound too loud especially if your civic is stock it would look weird if you hear a loud exhaust but only going 30 mph. Definately an rsr exhaust.

don't listen to stupid people. exhaust system is about sound and sometimes more hp. so if you like it - get it)

Magnaflow will look great on it) and the sound is moderate)
