Birthday Presents!!! 56k maybe...

well i got these for my 21st birthday i actually bought them myself. but oh well. what do u guys think.
2005 RSX-s axleback and rear sway.




Ingalls "stiffy" torque damper.


HFP decal


hpnotic (this was a real present someone gave me)

i just have one noob question ive been driving for a week with the axleback on and i have lost a significantly amount of MPG i donno if its because the exhaust is new and im just pushing it harder than my older one, or the exhaust is causing too much airflow and im loosing MPG. i dont think it would be the exhaust bc its only an axleback nothing else. ive search but noone talked about the 05 rsx-s exhaust reviews and performance. plus is been hot and maybe too much ac i donno. anyone have this problem. dont get me wrong its the best sounding, looking exhaust its just my gas and money im loosing right now. maybe in a couple weeks itll change. but the torque damper i just put on today so havnt really tested it out can someone help out with the best adjustment for it. thanks hope u guys like the pictures of my car and thanks for looking.

i can't help you with your question, but i have one of my own. Was the rsx axleback a direct bolt on? And are there any differences between the RSX and RSX-S axlebacks?

Does it sound any different?

And how much did it cost?

it was not a direct bolt on i had to take it to a muffler shop and they put new hangers, cut the inlet and put a new piping on it it fit good but i wish it was a bit higher but it couldnt be bc it hit the botom of my car. but i got it for $150 shipped from miami to san jose, ca from a guy from clubrsx.com bc he bought a dc5r muffler which i heard was the same exact muffler just with a different tip so his loss my gain. i think this one has a different internals like a weird valve thing that at higher rpms it opens and let out more air i dont remember.

DC5R actually has a valve inside of it that, when under WOT, basically turns it into a free flow.

The DC5R ones are different and it has a special valve to make it more free flowing but the USDM ones dont, they just look the same. I remember someone in clubrsx opened up the USDM one and it was totally different from the DC5R.........

well the exhaust is a little too low and scraps like crazy what do u guys think i should do. i might back it up an inch so it could fit better then by welding an inch of tubing extend the tip a little making it flush witht the car or do u guys think im might look like a hack job??? and the damper shakes alot on idle but shifting and the response is amazing anyone knoe how to fix the shakes or atleast reduce it.

That's one of the downside of the damper...

You can put some dynamat under the bracket, I heard that it removes some vibration.
