I just got GReddy EVO & have some ?'s

Well I just got it installed on my 2002 Ex Coupe 5-speed and I was wondering if anyone knows if it has a silencer on it??? It is pretty loud but I was just wondering. Also the sound is great, it is really deep but you can tell when VTEC kicks in at about 4000rpm it kinda changes. Still really cool though But someone in another topic said something like a friend had one one their car and it rusted out in like 5 years. Is that BS or should I be worried? Oh well, I love it props go out to Dorian at Racing Works and I should be getting my AEM Cai and bypass in the next couple days. So I'm like supa excited!!

Have a spare mit for scrubing wheels and exhaust wash that thing when you wash your car and polish it whenever you war your car. Hey how much did you get the exhaust for from racingworks?

no it doesn't have a silencer. i can't make out why you are asking though. is it too loud or too quiet for your taste? my Evo got deeper and sounded better and better as the months went by

Hey, thinks for the info. The Evo was $459. Thats not bad, the install cost me $100 bucks though[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG] I like it though, I was waiting for the Tanabe Super Racing Medallion but when I herd its release wash pushed back again I was like 'screw it'. Are you talking about those fuzzy glove type things? Also do I need to get a special type of cloth and cleaner to polish it?

Bottlefed: actually I really like the sound but I was just wondering if it had a silencer just to see what it sounded like without it. Just out of curiosity[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

You can use whatever you can to clean it. I use mits to wash my car cause its easier to get the surface cleaned and gets in small areas and its easy on the finish. But just use a spare to wash your wheels and exhaust you dont want to drag all the grim and dirt across your finish. For a polish Meguairs makes a real good metal polish just go to a autoparts store and find something you can work with. And Polishing it up when you wax could be kinda **** but do it as much as you feel.

i was just wondering cause i want on too, my neighborhood aftermarket part shop said he can get me the exhaust for $432 which is a pretty good price, my friend has a welding machine and he said he can weld it on for me for free

No, I don't have a body kit. It works nice with stock, I'm sure the way it fits would just depend on the kit though

GhettoAZN15, yeah its treating me good it doesn't hang low at all. Yes it sounds really nice, I could be a bit louder but I'm sure it will get louder after it gets broke in good.

But to anyone considering getting it, yes it sounds good and is an AWESOME exhaust, but I kinda wish it had stainless tubing.

Snort2001: Yeah $100 is kinda crazy but the guy asked how much it cost me, then said he does jobs on how much the product cost. I woulda probably said screw you and left but I really wanted it on right then, he was a friend of a friend, and also I knew he would do a good job. Oh well, I'll be more cautious from now on though.
