Has anyone replaced their muffler with a Glasspack? I can only imagine it would sound vicious!
Doesn't have to be Cherry Bomb, just any glasspack in general...

That's a true ricer right there! After you put the glasspack in, make sure you get a body kit for an accord and use duct tape to hold it on to you car. Remember, keep the body kit in primer to have the illusion that you can't afford the paint. Then put stickers all over your car of products that aren't even on your car. I nice NOS sticker would like great on the hood. Lol

All kidding aside, check local laws about the dcb levels of cars. Some places are strict with it and I know in some counties when you get your car inspected they actually look for cherrybombs and fail you for inspection.

I have a cherry bomb. And its not a ricer sound. Its more of a deep rumble. Complete opposite of those typical civics.

Is it like a muscle car sound? Like you're running a V8, and you pull up to say a scooby, and when the light turns green he guns it and you're left in the dust holding you're head in shame cause you just got toasted because your muffler sounds like your car has a huge engine in it all worked up when in reality you have a little stock 4 banger. There's a name for that......it's called ricer :(

Lmfao. You've never heard it. You will never hear it. I love it. Thats all that matters.

PS. I'd spend more time looking at the Subies than (illegally) racing them.

Haven't posted in a while... But what's up with all the negativity lately?? Lol it's crazy!!! I say do to your car what you want. As for the cherrybomb that sounds like an interesting idea. I'm kinda curious on how that sounds. @fas if you post a video on how that sounds let me know!

I hate the notion that if a car is import, anything done to it is instantly considered "rice."
A rice modification is usually anything that makes a car look or sound faster without making any improvements in performance or even make it worse. A Glasspack would help horsepower and it usually sounds pretty good.

You said it yourself....looks or sounds faster then it actually is. You think cherrybombs give that much of a boost? Ya lookin at a 3hp gain at most. If that's the case, fart can mufflers aren't considered ricers either cause they actually give you more of a gain. It's a straight thru pipe. A true mod is one that no ones knows it's a mod, and they think that it actually came with the car. Not to sound like a J/O but only people in civics under the age of 18 should be the only ones with those loud obnoxious exhausts. That's a kids toy. Just screams "hey look at me! My car sounds loud but it's just a POS in disguise. Go with a subtle muffler, dynomax, magnaflow, solo, or the TK system. Ya don't want to be one of those Honda clowns. Trying to build respect for this car, not make people think it's another Japanese junk box! (yes I know the car is from Korea)

my friend had a glass pack on his car too. it was also a 450hp 347 mustang!!! lol and the only reason he had them on was by law he had to have some kind of muffler on the car. but yea, i kind of agree with type m, if youre gonna put an aftermarket muffler on, use the magnaflow one, i got it on my car, you hear it at high rpms but its nice and calm at idle.

I would say not to go with cherry bomb. Not because its ricer because lets all be honest... You can't really escape that sound with our cars. to get the best sound you'll need to go get a full catback exhaust kit. If you want to just have a muffler than id say borla or magnaflow

Lmfao. Talk all the smack you want guys. I could care less. I love my car. I love everything that I've done to her. And for your information, every muffler has its own distinct sound on each car. So comparing a Kia to a Subaru... yeah not really gonna give it justice.

Y'all are just sad. So what if i'm a ricer, who are YOU to tell ME how what to put on my car??? I paid for it, I put whatever I want on her.

Thanks and goodbye.

I don't think anyone wants to be a ricer, it's more of an insult then a compliment. But if you want to label yourself that, well that's all up to you. I'd rather get respect on the street then looked at as a joke. Just my opinion

I'm not looked at as a joke. A girl who knows how to work on cars is respected enough. Lmfao, just because I put a cherry bomb on my car, you're like OMFG OMFG LOOK AT THIS RICER!!! Lol that's hilarious.

What work? You put a muffler on! I don't care if your a guy or a girl, as soon as those obnoxious mufflers go on, the respect factor drops. Ya get respect for your car for how it runs, not how it sounds.

Hey Fas, don't pay attention to this guy as long as you like your car the way you have it then nothing else should matter. Everyone's tastes are different and the only taste that should matter is yours:)
