No offence bro,But seriously for a car like civic i would rather have a S.S complete system witha neat rear muffler,somehow i do not like the finish of the exhaust,the can seems to have a rough finish and looks to be dented.
I do not know how it performs but from personal choice i would go for a neat s.s piping and a nice borla.remus kind of twin tipped end cans...

Again do not take this in a offensive manner.

You mean something like this for the end-can. I put this in my Fiesta, but not getting time to write about it.

@captainsokhi - your Civic looks tough. The black hood, black top and the projectors distinguishes you car from the normal civics. I would lokve to hear the exhause note of your civic with the FFE installed.

Yes i did had it in mind, but got this as there was a good amount of price difference in both. And i don't think there is much of performance difference in both. This is what i have heard.

Instead of going for a Branded CAI you can also get it fabricated which is a cheaper option and you will almost get the same gains.
Just install a K&N/Green Cotton filter and fabricate the piping.
Jiggy bhai can make this happen

just my 2 cents.


enjy the ur ride


cheers viky
Yeah, Jiggy sir have advised me on this, but im still confused as i have heard the ss piping dont give good performance as compared to the k&n's aluminium ones.

m4ugr8 here on the forum have got a K&N Typhoon Intake kit and there is no problem to the MAF sensor.

I have got the FFE installed from Raga Motors, it is a good service center. Other mods are done at different places. I have sourced the products from different dealers, in delhi and ncr and got them installed at placed which i thought will do a good job. If you want any help with sourcing of parts, i sure can help, PM me.

As stated here, headers for civic can not be made. The headers are built into the engine. Only the cat con can be removed.

Yup

No offence bro. I posted here to get comments, good or bad. I know ss piping and borla, remus, magnaflow would have looked better. But right now i was looking for a vfm ffe, will think about them in the future.

Congrats Captain, Your Civic looks HOT, really liked the Black Hood+Roof+Boot on the silver theme combo, Post more pictures of the car please.

The Exhaust looks good with a straight bolt-on fit, Any difference in terms of Low end drivability?? which power band got effected the most?? I have been thinking on this for a long time now.

The K&N typhoon kit is a straight fit, No issues with the MAF sensor whatsoever, Running the intake for well over a year now no issues. There are cheaper solutions available also, The K&N typhoon kit prices have risen steaply and now stand at 18990/- MRP which is a lot. I am sure Jignesh Sir @ Viper will have some sort of solution.

Once again the car looks got, how about a exhaust video??

To be frank, currently i am just enjoying the sound of it.
I am feeling a little more power in the mid section for now and i feel the main benefit will come only after a good intake job is done. I will do a 0-100 test tomorrow on my iphone and report back.

Thanks a lot, man. BTW, your civic was a big inspiration for me.
I have felt the difference in the mid section a bit. The low is still sluggish.
I had a talk with Jignesh sir about the Intake.
He said now they make pipes of same specifications as the k&n typhoon kits, in ss. They will cost approx Rs.3500/- and we can opt for any universal filter, k&n or Green, which will cost approx Rs.6000/-. He said this setup will give performance equal to that of k&n typhoon kits.
Will make a video of the exhaust and put up in a day. Thanks once again for the compliments.

Atlast i got the time to test 0-100 figures of my ride and the results got me worried. I dont have the before figures, but the current figures seem I have lost some seconds from the stock. Is it possible? Gurus please comment.
