Hey, ...

I'm pretty confident I found a cost effective and solid set up for my exhaust. Need some opinions and info on what i should and shouldn't do.

I've got a 98 Civic HX with a B18C1 conversion. Right now I've got Stock header, Stock cat, Tsudo Cat-Back. It has an alright sound (DEEP!), but I'd like a 'commando-style' exhaust so I don't wake the neighbors anymore.

Alright I'm thinking ....

Kamikaze Header
Car Sound Hi-Flow Cat
Apexi World Sport Cat-Back

The main problem I have is getting the GSR stuff to fit my HX (Coupe) body. I know it's a direct conversion, but when I put the Tsudo cat-back on I had to chop the pipe and weld a bunch of crap and it got all messy. Can anyone help me? It would be greatly appreciated.

All this talk about expensive parts ... I need to go do some more male-escorting ...

long story ...

my friend's dad bought him a brand new ITR in 98. He didn't really do anything to it until about a year ago ... one of things he did was buy a cat-back exhaust. He had it on for a little while (about 6-8 months), then he took it off since it wasn't doing a lot. About the same time I decided to get a nice HX shell and put in a B18C1. Since we are pretty close, he straight up gave me the cat-back.

the main concern I have is the Kamikaze Header. I don't hear of many people buying them, but the people who do, don't complain at all. Regardless of whether or not it really makes +20 hp, its a solid price and designed pretty well. I hear more horror stories from the DC Sports header than anything. I was thinking going ALL Apexi, but does Apexi even make cat's?

I don't know, I'm fairly knew to this Hybrid Civic-GSR so i'm still learning ...
