3.5" is pretty big for even a turbo'd accord. i say, get smaller piping cuz no matter what you do, that's just too big. (unless you're running over 30lbs of boost!)jonnacraz said:put a 3.5" dual exhaust and lost a lot of horse power... car doesn't kick at all... feels like its slower than stock. NEthing i can do? You think getting a turbo and header might help? what is my best option to match the power loss in the back?
LOL.... but yeah, if you are gonna stay N/A don't go over 2.5''UltraMagneticAL said:that's what SHE said
hehehe sorry, i couldn't resist
yeah, oops....i was trying to quote his thing, but i was goin thru these threads too fast and just picked your post cuz it was the first thing i saw that said turbo and header in one linebonestock94 said:notice the smiley .
well said :tu:racer_rcjmtu said:You're right southpass. That was harsh. My point is to make more people like us think mods through before they do them. If he had taken the time, he would have realized that it was a waste of time and money. Lets all be smart when i comes to our cars, we don't need to perpetuate any stereotypes.
you don't want any back pressure. the reason he lost power with that folgers size piping is because the exhaust flow starts bouncing around in there instead of flowing straight through, not b/c of back pressure loss. engines make more power w/ no header at all (no back pressure) then w/ any particular size of header/piping.racer_rcjmtu said:Well, by putting the 3.5 on there you lost alot of low end with the torgue because the loss of back pressure...you have more top end though.
