Afternoon people,

I'll have mine fitted on a standard manifold on Thursday - if nobody comes back to you I'll let you know!

I've got one attached to a tegiwa manifold. I'm gonna get a video up soon of what it's like.

It's incredibly good btw

General opinion based on my research was that it's definitely louder than stock, especially under load in VTEC. However during normal sub-VTEC use, it's not particularly loud. Not raspy, fairly bassy, sounds classy rather than chavvy, and it's OEM fitment so doesn't look out of place.

Note that all of this is on a standard manifold - an uprated mani will result in a much louder exhaust.

Additional plus point - it removes that stupid midpipe silencer from the OEM exhaust, which increases ground clearance quite a bit.

I don't want chavvy haha, I live in a quiet street and oem exhaust on cold is cold enough there so didn't want to go extreme! Plus I need ground clearance because I'm on Eibach 30mm and don't like speed bumps haha

It is apparently fairly noisy when starting from cold. Quietens down a bit as the engine warms up. All to do with idling speed.

Here is a quote from someone trying to decide between the Martellius, decatted Tegiwa and Milltek

I have it and couldn't agree more, I love the sound of it and doesn't drone on long drives. You wont regret it if you buy it

On long drives you are aware that it is there but nothing that will drive you crazy.

When you start climbing the revs it sounds great, not crazy loud like martellius

I did 60,000 miles in two years in my old one with a miltek lot of motor way miles and it wasn't bad. yeah louder than stock but not to the point it would drive you mad an they don't drone when cruising. Also I used to love as you just get over 3000rmp it barked as it started to sound deeper an then sounded even better when the vtec came on defo recommend the miltek

But "the crowd" have all made a good choice

There is a crowd for every system really, Martellius, Tegiwa, Toda etc only way to be really different is to go custom

Mine is getting installed as I type - the garage is having a bit of a bad time trying to get the sections to slide together though! Judicious application of heat and a rubber mallet required. Shouldn't be too long now though, and I'll pop up my impressions later on.
