Scorpion Exhaust

Well after the recent issues I have had with my CTR the only thing kept me sane was getting my Scorpion exhaust fitted. As I had only a small budget due to a very expensive engagement ring I started to hun for a used sport exhaust for my Civic. After a quick browse on ebay I came across a Full Scorpion exhaust system. I sent the guy an email saying would he take 250 for the system and I would collect. Guy accepted and off to North Ipswich I trundled in my dads estate bmw. When I got to the house i noticed that the decat he said was a Scorpion was a J Performance one which I have already had and taken off so was bit dissapointed. Anyway ended up selling and getting 50 for it!!

Anyway I called TGM and got booked in. Arrived bright and early today (8:15) lol for fitting. Tom has to be the nicest guy going fitted it with a struggle after just over an hour. Because it was used the tail pipes didnt seem to fit and are very close to the edge and i get a small rattle (which cant be heard in the cabin!) but Tom did try his best to sort out (what a perfectionist!!)

So whats it like??

Well on lower revs there is a noticeable change in pitch over the OEM and is deeper. However in vtec no difference over OEM. With regards to performance it picks up better mid range and torque seems to have improved but nothing dramatic.

Conclusion!

I would not buy a used exhaust again after the fitting issue and Tom has informed me that most aftermarket exhausts for the FN2 dont seem to sit straight for some reason. However with my small budget it does the job. I will post a vid and a dyno later on. I am satisfied with it though dont get me wrong. Now off for some more driving me thinks!!

sadly as we are all too aware, the cost of various aftermarket parts are just ridiculous.

From what you say, there is a small improvement in sporty sound and performance and so it's a good start until you are ready to upgrade to a better exhaust, you never know, another bonus might be around the corner! Take Fat4y's advice, enjoy it and remember, the exhaust needs time to settle in before the tone 'takes shape' properly.

It took a week before my Milltek established it's proper voice.
