I tested this exhaust to make 20-25 hp less than a stock exhaust above 7000 rpm. Ask WDsonny and look at his posts. Dont waste your money on headers until you can get a proper one.marcs23 said:scottatyamaha, Is there a specific exhaust you would recommend? I am getting the JRSC Street version installed tomorrow and at the same time I am switching from an Injen SRI to an Injen CAI. But I have the Magnaflow Cat back exhaust. It is 2.25" but I know through the muffler it goes down to like 1 inch. I also have not made up my mind about a header. I was thinking about going with a DC Sports shorty header. I thought it would be better than nothing. After laying out all this money for the JRSC and CAI, I can not afford a race header. Any advice you have would be great. Thanks
marcs23 said:Thanks. I noticied that in the clubrsx store it says that the thermal will not connect to a stock Cat. So that means I would have to use a High-flow Cat like the Carsound? Is there another exhaust that you would recommend besides the thermal where I would not have to change the Cat? I probally will change the cat in the future when I get the JC Racing header, but right now money is tight after buying the JRSC but I do want to change the exhaust right away.
Just want to say that I installed the DC shorty header with carsound cat welded and the performance gain wasn't "WOW" as hondata / cai was. I'm planning on getting a JR race header down the road.scottatyamaha said:I agree with Hondata....dont waste the money on a DC header. I had one on when I installed myJRSC and it was a a bottle neck as soon as I installed the JR Race Header it made a world of difference.
Sacrifice said:I saw the pics of the new thermal, it looks nice. BUT....looks don't mean much. What kind of power do you think it opened up for the SC? What does it sound like? I suppose my dreams of a SC'er with a header still being quiet are just that....dreams?
