My 5zigen fireball cat-back system has just gotten way too loud lately, and the tin can effect is just getting worse. I also have a hi-flow cat on there. I wanna make it a LOT quieter so here's a couple questions:
my car is a 96 civic cx hatch

Where is a good place to get a new/used cat for my car? will just the cx/dx cats fit or will the si or sir ones fit also? cost?

Can a muffler shop add some resonators into the system? I don't want to get rid of the muffler and go back to the peashooter one!

Are there silencers for the fireball muffler? If so where can i get one?


Any reccomendations or thoughts on what I should do would be great! thanks!

yes a muffler shop can add resonators, and that is what will quiet it down, the cat would only have a minor effect on the noise

it should, is this an actual 5zigen catback or a universal muffler w/ custom piping?

Man I just put a 2.5" resonator in my custom 2.5" exhaust and it quieted the idle, but not much.
I have a CarSound cat and that quieted it a bunch over the test pipe I was using before, but because my back yard (where my car was parked) flooded and I had like 3 inches of standing water covering the floor :( I had to take out the carpet, and now its loud as shit again.

Anyway, resonator would probably be your best bet. Do you have a silencer for the muffler?
... i used to but it fell out lol

5zigen fireball systems do not have a provision for a resonator

:confused: I have an authentic 5Zigen muffler and it had a silencer, and theres places on the net selling the silencers for around $30.

Also its mentioned that they come with them here http://www.carreview.com/Exhaust/Cat,back,Exhaust,Systems/5zigen,Fireball/PRD_54518_1580crx.aspx
and here http://users.ev1.net/~shinglin/cars/crx/exhaust/5zigen.html

carreview is full of a bunch of people who know nothing

http://www.5zigenusa.com/exhausts.html

look at the exhaust, there is no hole to bolt on a silencer, i have had my 5 zigen fireball for about 4 years now and there is not a provision for the silencer, look at the pic on the manufacturer site (link above) you will see there is no provision for it in the picture

and in this link you posted

http://users.ev1.net/~shinglin/cars/crx/exhaust/5zigen.html

you can see even better how there is no silencer provision

I also have a real 5*Zigen catback, and I fucking HATE IT!

Im just gonna put on a stock GSR, TypeR, S2k muffler and leave the catback piping on.

I hate exhausts on hondas!
My Gf has a Greddy Evo, probably one of the quietest ones u can get and I hate that shit TOO!

IF i could do it again, I would have bought an RS*R Ex MAG or an Apexi WS.

LOL....well if you want to go w/ pretty much stock components and you have a coupe you could use the ITR B-pipe and get a spoon rear section or even an ITR rear section
