Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

Well, my car got hit AGAIN right before it went to the shop to have the front end fixed, so the hood, both front fenders, new front bumper, front lipe, and the entire passenger side all the way to the passenger side of the rear bumper has been repainted, and that FRESH fiji blue pearl.. is to die for..
so here are some pics and yes i did some DUMB BS with my exhaust but if you notice the 2 bolt custom flange i had made, i can unbolt the pipe and tip and put my fart can muffler back on whenever . SOOO loud or quiet whenever, and as for the ugly led black taillights.. theyll be tinted soon. Oh, and my old black crystal headlights were replaced with crystal smoked headlights and smoked fogs... which look more like mirrors to me lol, but i kept the yellow with Nokya bulbs. And as of about 30 mins ago, i just ordered me a new stainless downpipe, so ill have a fully stainless exhaust, (From ebay) hahahaha but it sounds good, compared to alot of civics, especially around here.. idk how some people drive around with their hondas souding like they do.. lol

That is as soon as i got it home and jacked it up, i pushed the dent out, fixed the fender, and had t put my stock lihgts back in, it SUCKED but i knew i would get what ive been wanting, a freshly painted front end, thanks insurance co

Fresh out the car wash, you can see the painted to match grille and lip, and i went with paiting that little lower grille between the foglights to match too, loving that blue pearl...
and as for the exhaust... LOL

lol idk how i feel about that, but its a 4 inch rolled tip, with 3 inch pipe connected to my 3 inch catback with only a resonator.

As you can see, there is the 2 bolt flange so i can unbolt the piece and bolt up my canister to make it quiet again.

Re: Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

nah, it actually sounds good, the 3" piping helps alot, but once i get my downpipe with no cat next week the muffler is going back on it, otherwise it prolly would sound crappy then and id most likely get a ticket.. thanks for the hate it sounds good, and the tip is turned out.. it was just something different, whole point of being able to take it off and put the other muffler back on, EVERYONE else is too scared to put oer 2.5" on a honda for some reason? with a d17 idt anyone should be worried about a performance aspect unless the internals are built.. 3 inch pipe makes it sound ALOT BETTER .

Re: Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

Wow... that is a hella powerful car wash! Rinsed the dents right out!

I went with 2.5" exhaust and it's surprisingly deep sounding. Can't imagine what 3" sounds like...

Re: Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

car looks sweet man, love the fiji blue. i like the front smoke lights, fogs, grill, rims; but those rear euros really kill it imo. and sticking the exhaust out the side when it has the cut in the bumper doesn't mesh either. that's really 3 in. exhaust? looks like 2-2.5" tops with a 3" tip to me

and about the exhaust, i really don't think it's the best idea to run 3" on a d17 as lowlife said. ya, it might sound good.. for now.. you might wunna do a little research and make sure you're not taking a risk killing your dependable honda for the exhaust tone.

not trying to hate, nice car man.

Re: Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

Itll take a bit for the vids, i work alot so i gotta get time to swap the muffler and that pipe with the tip out to make a vid for each, and i used to have 2.5" pipe from the cat back, no resonator with a one chamber muffler, that sounded like doodoo in higher rpms, thats 3" pipe with a resonator and a 4 inch rolled stainless tip, and as for the taillights... they were only like $20 more than stock, and the LEDs are much brighter, i got em so when i have them smoked the LEDs will light up brighter than the stock bulbs will

nice; post em' here when you you get the videos taken. ahh i understand, it will look good with the rear smoked; and that front end looks great too. imo i think the front looks best with the white fogs, but everybody seems to say "yellow FTW" which took me a while to figured out what they meant lol.

I agree, I love the trans-clear fogs much better. I only like the yellow lenses on white cars.

Re: Pearlvic's EM2 is back from the shop :)

Jury duty at 18? Wow... I've barely even heard of 30+ year-olds getting summoned around here...

And I'm completely oblivious to all things electronic... what exactly is an o2 simulator?
