Nice Product and a Great Noise
I purchased this exhaust system based on other reviews which I had read a few weeks ago. The reviews hit the nail on the head. Installation was fairly straightforward, and everything lined up perfectly for me on my 2002 RSX Type-S. One thing to note is that the exhaust tip itself has a VERY tight clearance on the cutout in the rear bumper, and it may even be touching. In terms of noise, the N1 gives a deeper rumble when you start up, and is a bit louder when driving around town (and under about 4k RPM). Once you lean on the car though, and engage VTEC, you're greeted by an aggressive howl as you climb up the rev range. It's not as shouty and obnoxious as some other systems, though it will draw peoples' attention when punch it. If you run the silencer (which comes with the exhaust in the box), it's much quieter. The best bit? As one other comment mentioned, the exhaust DOES crackle and burble a little bit on overrun, and when you lift off after hard throttle, which sounds AWESOME. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable upgrade to the OEM exhaust. Awesome job Invidia!

I don't have much of a performance setup yet... I am late to the scene. I've had my 03 Type-S since Dec of 02 and have loved the car since then. I've been wanting to get an exhaust for it for a while now and finally took the plunge. Glad I did, this one sounds amazing, and between the shifts, you still get a bit of that spit back sound like the Jag Type F roadster does when shifting gears and coasting. Great sounding exhaust. oh and there is actually minimal drone when driving on the highway at around 70-85 mph even without the silencer.

I absolutely love the sound of this exhaust! It makes the car sound clean yet tuned if that makes sense. I previously had the Greddy SP2 exhaust which I loved until the inside started to rattle. This exhaust is louder but in a good non-annoying way. The one thing I did notice was that it hangs a bit lower than my old exhaust which causes a bit of a problem since I am already lowered on coil overs.... still trying to find a solution without raising up the car- I literally scrape the mid pipe of the exhaust on nearly every parking lot I enter and that was never a problem before. However I love the sound and I would definitely recommend.

Great n1 style cat back
This is not loud like other n1 style exhausts. Paired with a plm header it doesn't get loud until wot above 4500rpm. It does have a drone at highway speeds (70-80mph), but not as bad as my old skunk2 mega power r exhaust. Only down side is when vtec kicks in yo, it does attract attention from unwanted sources, I.e. police and ricers. Oh 05 type s, tuned at 210whp

This exhaust system is amazing in every way possible. Sound, quality and preformance are just incredible. The sound is very deep toned, you can just feel the sound waves of the exhaust from the moment you start up the car and idles, nothing raspy it's simply prestine. Quality of material and welding are phenomenal. Preformace wise you can feel minor gains but it definitley helps exhaust gases flow out smoother, if you have any modifications done to your motor this would definitely help. Overall it's a great product, after installation it just felt like a different ride and enjoy driving it way more now. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for that clean deep toned sound from their car.

I LOVE IT!
I love the sound of this exhaust! It has a deeper pitch to it, which is exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend this to anyone! I only had one problem with Invidia. Once my product eventually arrived I opened the box to find that they didn't send me all of the components. So I had to wait an additional week before I could put the exhaust on my car. I wasn't to upset by how long I had to wait, because it was well worth it! The sound this thing makes gives you eargasms!

More than happy
I hadn't seen much on this exhaust at all previously due to it not being so popular in the past I suppose. I went out based on Invidia's reputation. I honestly love this system. It's refined and nice and deep, smooth clean sound. Not overwhelmingly loud either. Which kind of caught me off guard. I'm not sure why this wasn't more popular. I definitely recommend.

Best exhuast ive ever had
This is the best sounding exhaust out of all my friends that have heavily modded cars. Sounds deep and really nice and for this price is the best sounding exhaust. My rsx is much more aggressive.

Best exhaust my buddys are always asking what Exhasut is it told them they never heard when you hit v tec deep loud only when u gun it little deep at 3 Rpms and at below 70 on freeway with stock header and with shorty header backfires with farts when you shift the good ones that sound mean hahahaha Type sssssss

I've been using this exhaust on my 2002 Type-S. I use a Replica Race header and Invidia short intake. The sound is fantastic. Basically, when you hit vtec at open throttle it opens up wildly and really sounds good. Very smooth and throaty. I never thought I could love a 4 banger exhaust note but this is truly something else. I have zero desire to try any other exhaust as this does exactly what I want. Fitment is great with no issues. Looks good from behind. For the price I highly recommend.
