Kazuma

I was wondering if anyone has experience with the TRD Kazuma exhaust system. How does it compare to the TRD muffler and tip replacement system? How difficult is it to install? Is it a true cat-back system? What are the horsepower gains? What about the noise levels? Has anyone ever been cited for this non-street legal exhaust?

TRD doesn't even compare to Kazuma. TRD is one of the quietest replacement exhausts, Kazuma IS, and I repeat IS the loudest made for our cars. TRD you can install by unbolting the stock one and bolting the TRD up, whereas Kazuma you have to Weld. TRD is axle-back, and has a muffler, whereas Kazuma is a cat-back (from what I remember...may be wrong, dont flame!!), and is pretty much a straight pipe with a resonator. The HP gains are supposed to be like 10 HP to the wheels...at any rate its by far the best for gains (just not for down low gains, only up high)...and for noise...the DAMN thing is so loud that its illegal...and not just barely illegal...its blatently illegal...and yes, tons of people have been cited on multiple occasions for this exhaust...its just something you have to deal with when you buy it. thumbsup thumbsup

Actually the Veilside Exhaust, if installed properly, can hit the legal dB limit @ 4500 RPM instead of @ 7500; I've read in Import Tuner that that's the loudest exhaust for our cars, oh and it's not street legal just like the kazuma

A friend of mine has the VS with customs pipes and yes it very loud but it's still not as loud as the Kazuma.

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.
