It will fit no problem. I just put a Spoon Street axel back muffler from a DC5R on my 06 Type S and it was bolt on.

You know the 05-06 B-pipe is the same as the ITR, right? Only difference in 05-06 and ITR is the valve in the muffler.

no, diameter of tubing on the 05 06 is smaller than type r, you can search that on here and find exactly what im talking about. The muffler on the type r is different in how the flow travels, sounds over all, the high rpm valve and it has a longer tip. theres alot more difference than your obviously aware of...do your research...

dude, there is a thread that shows both the ITR and the 05 06 type S and there is a visible difference in the diameter of the pipe leading to the resonator and out of the resonator--let me find it and you tell me what you think- i may be wrong, camera angles and whatnot can have that affect but the guy who posted said there is a difference in size, but did not measure. I may just call H-motors and get exact dims on it. let me find that stuff again...

On my 05/06 the ID of the mid-pipe where it connects to the Cat is 1.9"

i just meant pipe diameter in general- i think they will work togather just fine. I was told by JDM land that they think it is 2.6" b pipe diameter...im not so sure of this though. guy hesitated and didnt check on it, so i will keep up some research.

ya thats what i thought haha. My borla wasnt that big so i figured it wouldnt be either. I actually have an DC5-R bpipe being shipped to me from cali-(im in texas) I got it for $70 bucks Shipped, the day after i ordered it i got a call from crsx wtb add for a guy local to me and said he would give it to me for $20 bucks...and now that i think the entire rsx community has decided that there isnt much of a difference, i feel like a fool. I shoulda grabbed that and gotten rid of the itr pipe. When i get the ITR b pipe in, i will make a thread with all the specs and stuff. I emailed George here on crsx asking if he knew or would be able to measure.

Anyone on this jdm style a houstonian with an 05 06-s exhaust so i can do a good comparison?

The flange should be identical on all years for the Type-S.
