Did I eff up getting innovative 60A mounts? Lol like two guys told me they're too stiff for our cars lol I'm hopping it's not.
I also bought two OBX forza exhaust now I'm scared they won't fit because they look to long and if they do I think the tips will stick out too far :( but oh well should I run 3 inch straight pipe to the two exhaust ? Or would that be tooooo loud? I would like to get a couple back fires here and there but would like to avoid raspy sounds.
What do you guys think ?


Inlet Diameter: 3.00"
Tip Diameter: 4.00"
Tip Length: 7 1/4"
Muffler Length: 25.00"

I have 95s in mine, its honestly just preference of how you like your car. I hate cars that you cannot feel anything in, I like the rattles, bumps and noises, it helps you feel what the car is actually doing. The 60s should be just a bit stiffer then stocks which is completely fine and will reduce wheel hop significantly.

Are those just mufflers or a whole system? You wont get any "pops" with just a muffler if that is what you bought. You also wont have any rasp if the rest of your stock exhaust stays in place, the stock system is incredibly restrictive.

You will be fine with the mounts, you will feel some vibration and a little less after they break in.

As for the exhaust if it's a full exhaust you will not be able to tell on how far the tips will stick out until you get it on the car. I had comptech exhaust on my 08 civic si with the same style of tip and it did stick out more than other exhaust I had seen but it was not super crazy. Once I added the lip kit you could not even tell at all.

I bought just the mufflers I don't like buying the bolt on exhaust pippin. I believes in cutting and welding new 3 inch pipping lol I wonder how that would sound

The only thing I'm worried about is the tips will be toooooo long and needing a lip kit. Or the the pipping being to low to make the muffler fit

Not much louder to be honest. The header, cat, and massive res cut down on 90% of the noise. You might get a little grumble.

Its going to be loud and you will have rasp. You need a big up resonator or pre muffler to get a deeper sound, dont buy a little 12" resonator or something. I had a magnaflows and a 16" resonator put on my car with a 2.5" all the way to header sounded loud and farty. Switched the 16" resonator for a 26" glasspack and it sounds deep and no more fart, somewhat quiet too.

My opinion...

Im probably the worst person to ask that question to. I daily mine with a Js racing 70RR (no res, straight out with a small glass pack) and a weapon R header. Its LOUD, my friends txt me from all over town letting me know they can hear me 5 miles away.

I like rasp, but not your typical b18 fart can rasp. My K has this angry rasp that I think (and many others) sounds amazing.

You cant leave the stock header it will sound terrible. 3 inch pipe would give a deep tone, rasp will be there but it wont be your typical ricer rasp.

Heres a dyno pull from a few years ago. Weapon R header, Js Exhaust, stock intake mani and tb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZbJuOgytCA&feature=player_detailpage#t=88

The 2.5 inch piping is your problem, its too small which generates that higher pitched resonance
