a 3" exhaust pipe is a little big. i was told that 2 1/4" was about max size if your not running boost to get the most optimal power. but everyone has there preferences. im running 2 1/4" and i love it.

Image

Image

Image



there we go i've always loved these

Image



then i went to IMW for the first time and wow that crx is clean in person i love it and the teg was pretty sweet too! but anyways i got my ecu rechipped not sure what kind it is but it says sst on it and i got him to dissable the knock sensor and 2ndairy o2 and set it all back to original b16. so pretty much got rid of the "spoon chip". oh and i love it now before i had a hesitation problem and car felt a little sluggish on bottom end but now im all good, fixed all my problems!!!!!



Image



then my girls parts come in and made mine feel small lol!



Image

Image
