Default What would be the MAJOR different in an exhaust system of just the tip?

1988 Honda Accord5-Speed ManualLooked for better sound also going along with a probable intake, how much HP do you guess I can get out of a cold air intake.Just adding the tip doesn't give HP does it?

your correct, the tip won't affect power.and the CAI might take your accord from 85 to 88 hp.

Exhaust tips are cosmetic. Even the best exhaust system for your car would only give you 3-5 HP and a air intake 1-5 HP. Thats if your lucky. CAI and exhaust go hand in hand. The more air that flows in will flow out. More air means more HP.

I installed a K&N intake on my car, and my car increased 9 hp. Unless you get your chip tuned or reflashed, that whopping 9hp only affects your car at the redline. Other than that, it just sounds more aggresive. A full catback exhaust, again, will most likely increase your overall HP by under 10hp, at the redline. Your car is set up to allow certain amounts of air and fuel mixture, only at the top of your RPMs will that extra air induction and flow be utilized. By having your ecu chipped or reflashed, your engine will use that extra air flow to benifit your car in the midrange. Contact the guys at Speed Tuning USA. With my intake, they flashed my ecu, I gained 17hp, and 14 ft lbs of torque much lower in the RPM range. my car now feels like a street legal rocket.
