well i have a local mechanic on speed dial who is very good and i am sure he can do it but i wanted to know if it was easy enough for me to do it. with some backyard tools and some jack stands. i am getting everything ready to start a winter build so i might be asking more questions and opinions. any help would be greatly appreciated. and the super neg rep is awful. so i will be trying to fix that as well. thanks Nasthatch for the plus rep.

ok . so i have started to do more research. and i keep seeing that some mufflers have a deep tone but people say that it starts getting less deep with time. is a yonaka axleback a bang for the buck meanwhile i save up for the full 700 dollar exhaust? opinions? and also a research question because i haven't found what i am looking for. i had the stock wheel cover in the trunk of my integra sedan, and with the rain i got water in my trunk due to a leak somewhere my guess is from the sunroof hoses. so the cover ended up warping and i had to throw it out. i have searched forums and junkyards high and low and haven't seen one. would this be a dealer only part? and also the little 15 spare because i have disc brakes in the rear. i have neglected the vehicle for too long and i want to start taking pride into it again. any information would help. also. this red rep is a bummer lol

Apexi noir is basically the ws2 muffler in black. It is a quality piece that will last years... Buy the muffler and have a custom exhaust made for $300-400. Most mufflers using steel wool pack or fg packing will lose tone over time as materials settle or just plain rust out... Or worse.... Melt.

I bought a full Yonaka axle back for a b20 civic sedan that I had. I liked the way it sounded. Had a nice tone, still had the drone at certain RPM's but that's hard to get rid of in a 4 cylinder. I also loved the way it looked, the muffler was a little further forward than most exhaust systems on Honda's so you really only saw the shiny exhuast tip sticking out to the rear bumper.

well i really want the noir full exhaust because i hear a noise that sounds like a vibration from the heatshield so i just want to get the full exhaust. but for the meantime i will persue the yonaka. might as well. just a little cash until the big buy. and i came up with an idea. i know that in order to have fogs you need to have them cutting off when you turn on the highbeams on your lights. so my question is, can you wire the fogs in a way so that happens i don't want to deal with the headache of removing the fogs when i need to get an inspection. or should i even waste my time with fog lights? vehicle is an integra by the way. any help is appreciated.

i think i should just buy the cheap yonaka or a used ws2 or tanabe medallion or something in that category and then wait till i can have the full exhaust made or buy exhaust specifically made for an integra sedan, i hate that they are uncommon lol.

How much did you pay for the yonaka axleback? and where did you get it from. i have searched all the fs/ft threads for used mufflers but alot of people want too much for used stuff.

I recommend building your own. I bought my piping from here http://www.trubendz.com/categories/t...a-integra.html

Then I bought a Vibrant 2.5 Stealth Muffler http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vibrant-Oval...kIXRBA&vxp=mtr

Then I welded this resonator pre rear axle. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Xlerator-Per...ZTvtIW&vxp=mtr

I have since sold car or I would send you video clip. It sounded great man. I welded it together myself using my friends lift and shop but i assume muffler should shouldn't charge more than $120 Labor. IT took me about 90 minutes to cut, install and weld.
