The CorkSport exhaust is definitely a loud exhaust, to your average joe, just going off some of the comments of people saying it's loud.

I love mine and wouldn't have it any other way, personally. With a test pipe (removed secondary CAT) as they call it, and CorkSport intake, I think this engine sounds absolutely amazing at WOT.

Start small and work your way up from there, if you're concerned about sound levels. It's best to work forward with mods vs backwards. An example would be getting a cat back exhaust and realize that it's too loud for your taste and you really should have only upgraded the muffler.
I believe you have the 2.0 correct? Would you happen to have any drive by clips or rev clips? Highly interested! Thanks!

I could get some clips but the car also has an intake and now a full catback exhaust (replaced the mid pipe CAT with a bottle style flow thru resonator) so it's slightly louder / deeper vs what it was with just the axle back but I'll try to get a clip or two for you to enjoy.

I was always curious how that would sound on a 3... Dad did the same on his 1994 Eg Civic Si and loved it! Will be waiting for your clip(s)!

What kind of catback system does it have?

Yeah curious about this also because I have a borla exhaust and would like to replace the midpipe also.
Couple questions I have.
Was it custom? if so do you know the pipe size? What kind of resonator? Any additional drone to the resonator? With this change any loss in power?

Thanks in advance,

-Greg

I had a different experience ordering this exhaust. After customs, to get the exhaust shipped to Nova Scotia cost me $1100 CAD, and it showed up with scratches on the driver side tip. The scratches rusted the next day as soon as they got wet.
