Will It Fit Your Vehicle?
Fitment Noteswill also fit RSX premium/base models that are using or switching to a Type-S header.
K-Tuned RSX Cat-Back Exhaust Systems have been developed to offer maximum overall performance and excellent fitment, something that until now has been quite difficult to accomplish on the RSX chassis. With several exhaust systems currently available for the RSX, we already know that 3" piping reduces restriction and offers the K engine significant power gains, especially in the higher rpm range. The problem with most RSX exhaust systems has been fitment because standard 3" round piping under the RSX chassis hangs way too close to the ground. This has forced some manufacturers to sacrifice performance by using smaller tubing to compensate for the bad ground clearance. The key feature of the K-Tuned RSX Exhaust System is the unique 3" oval tube mid pipe, which completley solves the ground clearance problem and maximizes exhaust flow. There shouldn't be anymore scraping on driveways or speed bumps because the 3" nominal size oval mid pipe actually hangs at the exact same height as the factory Type-S exhaust.
The system is a direct bolt-on for all 02-06 RSX Type-S models but will also fit RSX premium/base models that are using or switching to a Type-S style header. Note that the entry to the mid pipe has an extremely short section of 2.5" pipe that quickly steps back up to 3". This is necessary because we wanted our system to bolt up perfectly to the stock Type-S header as well as any aftermarket headers that maintain the factory connection point. If you have a turbo setup or an aggressive all motor setup you can easily cut this transition off and join it to your down-pipe or header. The rear section includes a resonator and a fully polished stainless steel muffler with a 4" double wall slash cut tip and we also include all gaskets and hardware. For anyone who has questions about sound, keep in mind that this is an aggressive, race inspired, straight through exhaust system so it will make some noise. This kit was not designed for the average grocery getter RSX.

Fitment On Point
First off, the fitment is on point to where I had to align it again so it wouldn't hit the heat shield under the oval pipe and to clear the rear sway bar. It's a good design for us that are lowered. This work of art sounds absolutely beautiful. Music to my ears. Multiple compliments from various DC5 owners and people with different chassis as well. Not sure what else to say about it. I don't regret spending the value of this cat back and it's not as loud as people claim. I didn't care about how loud it would be since I'm just aiming for performance. So if you daily drive your car, like me, this wont be a problem. Until you add a header... But if you keep it in low RPMs you'll be fine. Fitment, Power, & sound are all 5/5.

Make your own decision
I purchased this exhaust less that 4 months ago and had it on for about 5000 miles in normal summer conditions. It has broken on 2 of the welds and it obviously defective. My car has a hasport 70a rear motor mount and isn't low so no scraping and no reason for this. Then I contacted KTuned and they asked for pictures. Pictures were sent and their response was they want me to send the exhaust back to them so they can decide if they want to try to fix it or give me a new one that isn't defective. I spent good money on this exhaust and money to get it put on, now I have to spend my money to take it back off and ship it back to Canada. We are up to like a 1000 dollar exhaust and not to mention that I now have no car until they figure their shit out. Bad customer service in my opinion and poor quality control. I really wanted to like KTuned parts, they are just giving me reason not to like them.
