Got the Magnaflow installed on the CRV yesterday. Performance has increased a bit in the mid range. The slight lag between 2nd and 3rd has now improved a lot. The sound per say is not at all loud and only starts to spurt and bellow when one is heavy on the accelerator which is just perfect for me. The whole thing took about 3 hours to get installed. The magnaflow had to be welded to the existing pipe. Due to the diameter difference of the stock pipe and the magnaflow inlet, we had to fabricate a reducer/increaser to achieve the correct connection. Here are some pictures:

How did you choose this particular model of Magnaflow?
Is this the only component in the entire exhaust that's been changed so far? Or are you planning more changes (decat?) down the line?
Do you have a picture of what was swapped out (the OE part)?

As of now thats the only part that has been changed. I am planning to progress the upgrade stage wise and go all the way to the header. Am contemplating if I should get a full kit from Magnaflow or try some custom makes from BLR. Red Rooster maybe??

Will send you a pic of the OE part soon.

Full kit from Magnaflow will be expensive. If you have already made your mind and decided on Magnaflow then go for it! If not you can get the whole FFE system made in Bangalore. Red Rooster is a brilliant option and also Race Concepts. Keep the existing Magnaflow muffler and couple it with the headers and the intermediate pipes.
After you get the setup done, do post a video.

Saw from your pictures, on the first page of the post, that you have taken the CRV on some moderate off-roading. How do you find the ground clearance of the vehicle? Any issues with large speed breakers or potholed roads?

Hi Sridhar! On the contrary, i tend not to talk my vehicle on off-roading trips. The muck you see is due to the driver taking a 3 day off. Have done some moderate off-roading in the early days of the vehicle. She has no ground clearance issues whatsoever. Bangalore is filled up with odd-shaped humps and the crv clears them with no problems whatsoever. On the extremely abnormal ones, there is a slight projection on the left hand bottom of the car. This is nothing but a protective sheet covering of what I think is probably the catalytic convertor. That does tend to scrape but this is on extremely abnormal speedbreakers. There is just one in Bangalore on the Kothanur-Airport shortcut. Honda have been kind enough to layer the entire under-belly with nice strong metal.

What really stands against this car on the rough roads is that the suspension is very sedan like. It tends to give the driver lot of feedback on rough roads on the steering, shock absorber dampening isnt the best (compared to the toyotas), heavy road noise from the tyres (have to really crank up the stereo to nullify this). Overall, its a great highway mile muncher and great for the city. I strongly feel the Fortuner, Captiva, Koleos are a lot better on the off-road stuff but dont match up to the CRV on-road.

BMC DIA Filter installed by Red Rooster Performance yesterday. Havent been able to do a test-run yet. Sound has enhanced and the combination of the BMC filter and the Magnaflow exhaust kinda gives it a nice throaty V8/AMG sound. Have a small feeling there is a air leak on the welding joint to the Magnaflow. Will get it checked today.

RRP busy prepping for a rally. Have called me in after two weeks to measure and callibrate a SS Free Flow header set-up. Cant wait!!!

Does anyone know if there are any modded CRV's in Bangalore or around the south region? Not appearance but mods like headers, exhausts, FPR, Turbo Kits etc etc?

Im really sorry to be hijacking this thread. Since it was once opened by a member, I didnt want to overload by starting another thread. If the mods feel so, I can gladly start another.

After many months of research and hunting in India, I finally gained access to Eagle-eye lights from Taiwan. The procedure involved was quite tedious but it happened nevertheless.

I contacted Eagle Eye in Taiwan and began the process for importing headlight and tailights custom made for the previous generation Honda CRV (2009 model). I went almost as far as wiring the money to them for shipment but a nice man at Eagle Eye gave me a better idea.

I was due for a visit to singapore early june for a conference. I informed Mr. Kevin (chief of sales at Eagle Eye Asia) about this as I had once considered shipping the lights to singapore and then collecting them from a friend who lives there, it so happened that Mr. Kevin had a even better idea. Eagle-Eye also have a headquartered office in Malaysia and he then offered to drive the lights to singapore from JB and that I could collect them in person from my mate in singapore. The onus of bringing them to India seemed simpler as I could just carry them with me as checked-in fragile baggage.

The representative of Eagle Eye was nice enough to drive to singapore the weekend before I arrived and had them dropped off at a friends house. 5 days later I arrive at singapore and am united with my precious lights (ive been looking for them for almost a year and I was so delighted to finally have gotten them).

Conference over, went over to my friends place and double packed the lights with extra padding. Job done! Taxi'ed them to the airport, couple of questions at the check-in counter (whats in the boxes? have u packed them well?) and off they go to be loaded on the plane. 4.5 hours later, my flight arrives at Bangalore. I collect them from the baggage claim conveyor belt. Two quick questions from the customs official (whats inside the box?How much did u pay?Are u a indian national?) and off they go in the boot of my car.

The item was handled extremely well and there was no sign of any damage or whatsoever when i reached home unpacked the box and checked them out.

Next morning, off to Hot tracks on victoria road and had them installed. Took about half a day as the front bumper had to be removed to fix the headlights.

End result? The car looks good, i get a lot of questions at junctions and the performance has improved by quite a lot. Low beams have been converted to 6000k Xenon by race performance. Will slowly change the high beams too.

Here are some pics:

Nice work! If you don't mind me asking, how much did the lights cost you? And which HID kit have you used for the low beams?

You simply answered a few questions about the lights and Customs let you through? No demands to pay duty?

Hi coloneljasi. The lights costed me 53,000 INR for front and rear set. It was costing 78,000 if i got Eagle Eye to ship it to my door by air and 72,000 by sea. It would have costed me 65,000 to do it through a dealer in India like autopsyche or hot tracks himself.

Ive got 6000k race performance HID kit for my low beams. Looking for a setup for the high beams.

Completed a DIY installation of the mugen grill on my CRV. Need to find a good painter for some black accents on the lower grill and maybe the bonnet.
