Just swapped my exhaust out for a 27 inch glasspack. Couldn't have sounded any better!!! Took it for a test drive with the muffler off didn't sound bad but the glasspack makes it have a deep rumble! For 35 bucks can't beat it!!

Nice

Very nice thread with lots of info and people trying the modification out, with an overwhelming majority liking the sound. . I was looking at the exhaust setup for the 2015 Fit at Bernardi.com and notice the muffler and piping to it looks to be setup generally the same. It's worth a try.

In the long run, the piping from the exhaust manifold back would have to be opened slightly for a little more power but the two cat converter system looks to be a pain in the as*, especially the first cat from the exhaust port (Very sharp bend).

At any rate, if it's a simple two bolt (Couldn't tell from the diagram but the setup looks the same as previous years), I'm willing to try this out. If it is that simple, I'll test it out at the dragstrip and see if there are minor changes in 1/4 mile time and especially trap speed. I'd be happy with a slight bump in my trap speed, considering it's such a simple and cheap mod. The 60ft time and 1/8th mile time/trap speed would expose if it has any loss in low end torque as well. Can't wait!

Pulled my muffler off this morning and drove around for a bit. The sound is pretty "drony" IMO. Not that it really drones just that it has that pitch to it. Not obnoxious nor great sounding but it's a cheap way to get an idea if you want an aftermarket exhaust or not.
The car definitely didn't gain 50hp like I was hoping for.

Bisimoto

Anyone think about trying to add Bisimoto's Pulse Chamber to their car? It qualifies as 'not a muffler, just pipe'.

PULSE CHAMBER

If you want bad quality & high prices, Bisi is always the way to go.

I've heard about the header problems, but how bad can his mufflers be? Have you personally had a bad experience with this muffler or are you just spreading hearsay?

Do you have one of these mufflers that you can share your experience?

Not as much heat, pressure, or deflection in a tail pipe. I've seen a few out in the field and the owners seem happy.

I've not run them.

But I'm one to buy parts from a known scammer.

Especially when you're looking to pay $400 for a couple pieces of tubing.

Just have your local exhaust shop make you a straight pipe and then have them weld on a 1.5" elbow facing the back of the car and have them cap the end. It shouldn't cost very much, however placement does change the sound but 1.5" should eliminate the Honda buzz decently.
