Hello everybody.

I just got HKS premium reloaded and HKS catback system installed and it works just fine and gives an awesome sound on higher revvs. Got one little issue with the system though. When i´ve been driving for a while and the car is in idle i got some short rattling sounds now and then. Just wondering if anyone out there with same system have had similar problems and how it was solved.

P.s. Sorry for my bad English. :)

Cheers from Sweden.

very common...the exhaust's postition is closer to the top of the triangle frame...you should get it moved down a bit

Try bushes/exhaust mounts - or have the tip of the exhaust doctored (I'd personally use the bushes)

Friend had the same problem with the exhaust rattling due to the surround when the exhaust got hot. Think he used bushes as previously reccomended

probably talking about harder polyurathane bushes i.e powerflex bushes i used them on my old car they are brilliant they are much harder than the standard bushes and last alot longer,dont get soft therfore eliminating,or minimising movement which in turn should stop the rattling ;)

cant help you there i am afraid as i have not changed mine yet,best thing to do is have a look at the mountings under the car or take it to an exhaust place or honda dealer and ask them to write down what size/shape mounts you need..
