I'm looking at getting one of these from eBay for about 75$ shipped for the 11225 and 85$ for the 12865...can someone explain what the major differences they have and has a nice sound but not too "ricerish." And to who have a CAI, do either or both of these sound good with it? Recommendations?

I was gunna ask u aidensgrand on how u like it. I want it to sound rly good but not too loud where I'll draw too much attention and not obnoxious loud. I just don't rly know which one to go with. All I've noticed with the difference between these is that one is off centered and oval shaped and the other is centered and rounded. What's the difference?

well i did some youtube searching before i bought mine and the 11225 was too quite for me. i will say that the 12865 is loud but its by no means a ricey sound. compared to some of the hondas that my friends have, it sounds like an r8 lol but its got a very nice purr to it at idle and when accelerating, its not ricey but instead, a lowish growl. and then when you add the CAI sound to it, its like music from the heavens :)

now with that being said, i will be upgrading to the Turbokits.com Catback but i havnt the money yet :p

Aidensgrand, did you change just the muffler or did you get a new exhaust put in? I want the magnaflow 12865 but I want that sound along with the HP boost. I have a sedan ex 2.0 can I put that on there? Thanks for any help.

No I just have the muffler. And yeah you can go to a shop and see if they would put the mandrel piping in. but make they are just going to bend it. It has to be mandrel bent. If not, then there are full exhaust kits out there for our cars and you can take it to a local body shop and have them install it for you

ok thanks, I'm not sure what would be best, all new system or just the muffler. I think my exhaust is smaller than the koups. I basicly want the sound you have and maybe get a few more HP if I can.

Monty, if youre looking at mainly the sound, I would suggest just getting a muffler. I got the 12865 and I love it!!!! I was so worried of it being too loud and tin can like lol but I get so many compliments! It's rly nice and with the CAI it sounds even better!
