look at the post above....the exhuast lengths between both are completely different without the adapter it will not bolt up to each other if your still using base header with stock cat/test pipeI want to be 100% sure before I buy an aftermarket Type S exhaust system. I have one of those adapters for a Stock type S exhaust system. I was wondering can I use the same adapter for any aftermarket Type S exhaust system as well?
In the beginning of the thread it just states
2.Base test pipe
4.Type S exhaust
3.*Adapter*(to fit between the exhaust and cat, w/o it forget about trying to fit it)
4.Type S Exhaust
I m still very confused on this. Can I just use the adapter and order the Apexi WS2 catback system the one selling here on CRSX?
I understand there is a length different. But if I have one of those Type S stock exhaust adapters already, would it be okie? I know the adapter compensates for STOCK type S exhausts, but would it compensate for the length for aftermarket Type S exhausts?look at the post above....the exhuast lengths between both are completely different without the adapter it will not bolt up to each other if your still using base header with stock cat/test pipe
I found my adapter here on CRSX. Just keep updating, sometimes you will find one, and they are cheap. Mine was $10 before shipping. Good luck!Where can you find the adapter to fit type-S exhausts on the base header/cat? Seems like my best option considering I want to keep a cat and I don't want to shell out hundreds for a type-s short header and cat just to make my PowerGetter fit.
Is there any reason why I definitely wouldn't want to go this route?
It's a good question. I don't think there are any downsides. I've read that it'll sound different than with the type-s engine. I'm guessing that exhausts won't get as high pitched as on a type-s, especially with VTEC, since the base doesn't hit VTEC as hard. A race header, as opposed to a short header with a cat, will sound different again, since a race header-based exhaust system will be much less constricted. Not sure exactly *how* it'll be different though. :dontknow: Still learning...what are some downsides on puttin type s aftermarket RH/exhaust on a base?
So wong, all I would need is a Type-S Header and the 05 type-s exhaust will work? Do I need a cat too?i had an adapter, didnt like it. since the header is actual 'gain' and sound part so i tossed it and went w/ a type s header. (i have a 02 base)
tbh u can get a type s header for like 100bucks on here tops and it's easy to install. so i think it's worth it instead of just an adapter
