    I've installed this complete exhaust system on my 2.2 I-DTEC:

    But it's a spanish company:

    Inicio

    Price: 550€ homologated plus 110€ of the OEM Honda tips

    I got a smoother sound plus a deeper between 2000-2500 RPM, and a great sound on the back... great to be diesel.

    Very classy and very well executed , quick question why are the pipe from the front to the back boxes painted silver. Was stainless steel pipe not used?

    get a clip with the sound bud, would like to hear it.:GoodJob:

    I think its not stainless tube. Lattely i'm seeing some rust is appearing, I think it will need a paint again.

    You should have reused the metal tube from the stock on it would be a better grade. Personally see it pointless using mild steel tubing to stainless steel back boxes.

    Painting the outside won't stop it rusting from the inside :Whistle:

    I didnt want to do that because the OEM pipe is intact and can be reused in the future.

    I know that... but out of sight, out of mind.

    makes sense not cannibalize the stock one if you wanted to return back, but If I were you I would get mandrel bent stainless steel pipe fitted then your back boxes will last as long as the entire system.
