Default is there really a defference in proformance exhaust? i mean besides the price?

I've been looking for a catback exhaust system the prices range from BBP exhaust at around $200 to ones like skunk2 at like $600-700. So my question is what exactly are you paying for? Is it just the name or is there actually a defference in proformance or quality? Oh yeah its for an 02 civic SI.

you're paying different noises and name. the more expensive one sounds better than the cheaper one. Quality and performancewise, no difference.

Its quality. Your paying for stainless steels, exhaust notes, mendrel bending and pipe diameter.Stainless steels wont rust. Mendrel bending means smoother air flow.Pipe diameter means more air flow.Exhaust note means street credit, less asprin and less tickets

Your paying for quality and performance. If your car is stock at the moment you might not get much performance maybe no more than 10 WHP or maybe a little more. Each brand name is made differently in the muffler witch gives different sounds and performance. In the future if you plan on working on the Civic SI, then exhaust will help the car with more faster and smoother air flow that needs to be let out. From what I've heard the best exhaust for the 02 Civic SI are the Tanabes and the Greddys also if you buy an exhaust system and if there is some kind of serial number on the muffler those are street legal type of exhaust. I have exhausts with serial numbers on them even though i get pulled over but i never get a ticket just because of that.
