no guesses haha i see alot of those on here! i suggest if you really wanna disturb the peace go with a 12" glasspack! these things are LOUD!!!! they sound pretty good, they dont have as much of the pop of a straight pipe, but they are still extremely loud.....to make it louder.....drive it around for about an hour then cut the engine off, get a garden hose, turn the water on and stick it in your tail pipe, there just enough water pressure to go into the muffler and break up some of the noise cancelling material...there's not enought pressure to force the water back into your engine! be considerate with the water though it dosen't take 15 minutes only about 30 seconds!!! maybe this will help ya! good luck disturbing the peace....ps these are not neighbor friendly!

a glass pack makes noise on anything.. you can get it even louder if you get the muffler hot. then run a water hose in it to break the fiberglass.. then crank the car to get the broken fiberglass out

yes it will work... it will be obscenely loud. You may not even be able to hear your music in the car. But why do you want to cause more shame for the honda community??us honda owners are laughed at because we have other honda owners putting glass packs and rediculous ebay cheapo knockoff mufflers on their cars...try keeping the stock muffler but gutting the cat and putting an intake on it. YOU personally will get enough audible feedback inside the car while not driving around a RICE CAR*added bonus to my plan you wont constantly be harassed by the police as I was when I had my racing muffler on my HONDA, now I have it the way I just explained which sounds extra nice to me...*

Gutted cat=power robber.

I have a 2.5'' glass pack on my bimmer, it's about 24'' long. With a turndown right before the rear axle. Yes it's loud. It doesn't sound horrible, it just drones at certain loads and rpm's.
Would I put one on a honda? no. I would go with a nice center muffler, and a resonator. Then your choice of exhaust tip. Or hell even go with a "go-fast" muffler.

Grow up!

Back in the day I had an '81 Accord with (from in to out):
Dual snorkel cold air intake, Weber carburetor, polished out intake manifold, JDM cylinder head with larger valves, stage two cam, recurved distributor with vacuum advance (gas mileage as good as stock! but premium gas), MSD ignition, 4 into one header, hollow cat converter, 2" exhaust pipe to... a stock muffler. The sound was a deep hum with no razz. That car had so much torque it would chirp the tires going into third gear. Tranny bearings would only last a year or so. I would eat turbo Subarus and BMW 318i's for lunch.

Forget the noise! Power rules!
