    So I got a quote from Hytech for a replacement exhaust...$2800!! Now to go down the repair avenue as Hytech didn't seem to want to budge on the pricing. Wonder if I can get someone in Houston to custom make an exhaust with header and muffler for $2800...that's bound to be possible!!

    maybe you can get one that sounds good too.........OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    haha j/k the hytech was quiet and IMO didn't fit the brash harsh nature of the atom, but for people who wanted a quiet exhaust it was.

    I recommend having a repackable muffler used OR better yet, a custom muffler made with no packing just baffles, it's pretty common at least on the ecotec's that the wadding inside the muffler will melt, it may NOT be an issue on the honda's

    My current stainless muffler is actually fine. Hytech told me their exhaust was quiet, which as you've pointed out is exactly the opposite of what I want. I tried to convince them to get away from this expensive twin loop muffler bullshit but it didn't work.

    I had some bolts fail on my exhaust before the header issue and I enjoyed the unmuffled roar from the back of the car...granted at idle it sounded like a tractor, but otherwise it was lots of fun!! Made me want to install a remote dump valve :P

    "Quiet" is 95dB at 50 feet at WOT; still much louder than even aggressive street cars. The Fortress exhaust was obnoxiously loud.

    yeah something in between would be most desirable.

    Quick update to this, I got the header rewelded for ~$240 (2hrs labor, $75 for weld)...happy with that while I figure out if I just want to clean up the existing header and ceramic coat, or save up my pennies for a brand new exhaust from Hytech or elsewhere.
