Need test gk for rv6 exhaust testing......

Alright guys been talking to rv6 and they are open to developing some exhaust options for the fit and this is just me assuming but I assume a down pipe or pre cat pipe what ever you guys would like to call it, unfortunately I live in az or I'd be all over that!!!!! So the question is you lives in Illinois or around who'd be willing to travel to get some dynoING and testing done?

That's about 2.5 hours from me. The only way I could offer my car was if they could do the testing "while I wait," as I'd have to make a special tripů

I'm sure they wouldn't mind as long as you guys scheduled something I would definitely email them or give them a call and let them know that you're willing to and that you heard they wanted somebody with a Gk Fit

The downpipe would be a great addition performance part for us and hopefully make some nice power. It would also need an EGR delete, lets hope RV6 get this moving.

I'd be interested in a resonated midpipe as there currently are no state-side options available yet.

Would you be interested in a non-state-side option? The J's Racing resonated mid-pipe fits just fine. No need to wait!

It's a shame no-one stepped up to get this ball rolling for the RV6 testing.

Yeah - i've been waiting in hopes that someone would release something local so that it would be much cheaper. But if there are no other options by Spring time, i'll probably pick that up

Mid pipe won't do enough, you need a much better transition with no cat coming directly out of the head. Hopefully someone will step up and get this going, nice gains for sure.

ORD exhaust makes a catless downpipe for the GK5 but doesn't ship to the US. I found them on Instagram. Looks like a nice piece.

Front Pipe Honda Jazz RS, Brio, Freed L series Engine | ORDexhaust.com

Jazz RS, Type S, Brio, Freed | ORDexhaust.com


Are those the two pieces you are referring too? Thread may be getting off subject a bit but there isn't much bite going on in it as is so.....

It's similar but not those you linked. The one in their instagram isn't listed on their site. It looks good and has the EGR pipe on it

This? https://www.instagram.com/p/BAlk1FXL...-by=ordexhaust

Possibly another shot --> https://www.instagram.com/p/BAURndaL...-by=ordexhaust

If so..I'm not seeing the EGR pipe.


Here is a video shot of how they combo sounds like on their ride.

Yeah that one you found. I asked them About it twice regarding shipping to the US and spoke to them in DM but never got anywhere. At the very least if I got it I could use it till I go turbo. I'm currently running 2 1/2 " exhaust all the way back to a 2008 civic SI muffler. Huge difference in power up top. Also took out the Secondary cat.
