Probably asked already,but I wonder if there is a reason the Buddy Club is not very popular here.To me,it is one of the best looking(as far as the pics I see) canister style cat-backs.I like the matt finish,and the seperate hangar seems like it would alow more adjustment for fit,or I guess that could also be a weak spot.There are not many sound clips,so I can't comment on sound.Most exhaust sound like crap in the clips anyway.For example,many swear the Skunk2 is not ricey,but I listen to a clip,and the sound is the absolute definition of a ricey exhaust.Anyway,just wonder if there is a reason the BC is not as popular as the others.

I think hes just saying that videos online dont do the Skunk2 justice.

Never heard any exhaust for a Fg2 in person.I meant that the videos of the Skunk2(and most others)sound ricey as hell,while the people that own them swear they do not.I've been looking for an exhaust for awhile,but can't decide on one based on the shitty videos.

I think you should look at the Vibrant then its sounds great in person, the piping is 2.5, it has a nice oem look with a bronze finish give us a better idea of what your looking for here is a link to the vibrant -

CorSport Inc. - Import and Sport Compact Aftermarket Automotive Performance Parts - Honda Acura Civic Si Integra RSX CRX Element Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII IX MR Scion xA xB tC Nissan Subaru STI WRX s13 s14 ep3 fg2 dc5 - CorSport USA

Also here are 2 vids of a friends Vibrant exhaust that i took -

I have a buddy club exhaust on my fg2...and i gotta tell you, I love it. It doesn't sound ricy at all..I get people who say to me "Sheeet you got a cannon shooter on your car..I bet it sounds like ass." I started my car and they all shut up. I get told its one of the best sounding CIVICS they have ever heard. Its not to loud, but its not soft..its just right. And i can;t wait until i can get my header!!! I would deff. Pick one up for your car.

Just listen to a DC5 with the exhaust, in person or in youtube..My friend had one on his, and thats why i waited for Buddy Club to come out with it..read my old threads, i kept emailing BCUSA on when it will be made, and how much longer and all that crap.

you wont be disappointed.

Well, an exhaust can be deep and sound ricey. In the skunk2's case, it's unnecessarily loud and is a stupid way of drawing attention to yourself imo. So therefore, it along with the vast majority of exhausts on here are ricey. I still like it and the TI-C though :p

Fujitsubo Exhaust on TSX!!!

There is one guy with Fuji on this SI, the guy with the full Type R conversion. man I wanna hear it on a Fg2.

Fuji makes the best exhausts IMO but they are very expensive. I like them because THEY DONT HAVE A DEEP TONE.

They have a Ferrari high pitch Honda F1 type tone. RIDICULOUS!! HERES THE SEXY SOUND:

I had the BC pro .. it did sound amazing.. wasn't superloud like the skunk and had a nice deep mellow tone.. much better than the skunk IMO and its 2.5 so you dont lose as much low end power.. i think it is one of the best exhaust for our cars..

Just finished my BC Pro spec exhaust swap.. one word... DEEEEP! Im so glad my wife likes me enough to put up with me. As soon as i started it up i was like.. damn! 4500-6500 is a real bad ass sweet spot.. above that and the exhaust gets a little quiet (good for me).. in the low revs puttering around its there alright...everywhere.. 360 degrees of bass like rumble. 75-80 sounds very tolerable if you maintain pressure on the noise maker. put some pressure on it and the exhaust awakes. its dark so pics and a better then what ive found video will be up later
