Default Lookin for HP and nice sound

Wuz good guys... I just bought a 2007 LX coupe and am looking to get it to sound real nice... I bought the SI's exhaust and I like the way that sounds but I want more... The thing is, I want it to sound classy while having it get some lloks when I rev that engine a lil... I have been considering a short-ram cold air intake (AEM, Fujita, or K&N) but before making this purchase I would like to hear some feedback... You should know that horsepower isn't as importanta to me as look/sound is... Let me know what you guys think... and if you have any specific tips that might make my ride a lil nicer to look at I would definitely welcome those!! pz out

Welcome to the forum!

Anyways, an intake and a header will make the car a little louder. However, an intake, to someone who doesn't know much about cars, probably sounds something like a belt squeaking. I've never heard anything about it, but I imagine getting a high-flow cat might make a car's exhaust a little louder since there's more flow than stock. And I know you already have an SI exhaust, but check into twin-loop exhausts. The Mugen twin-loop is flat-out the sexiest sounding exhaust I have ever heard on a civic.

if you want something loud and sounds good, apexi N1, or skunk2 (70mm). for catbacks.
i also recommend injen CAI, or SRI. they make good stuff. i have the CAI, and my buddy has the SRI., and that sounds real nice.
i had 20's on my LX, and people say, "oh why would you do that???" but then once they saw it everyone thought they were awesome. no one had a LX like mine. i also had a rediculous stereo system in it. and a exhaust. here is a pic of the car below...

rims have about 100 miles on them, same as tires. like as soon as i put the rims on, ppl were making offers on the car. so i sold the car for alomst what i paid for it brand new.

paid 17,100
sold for 16,500 (stock, no rims or stereo)
car had over 22,000 miles on it, was a 2006 LX

i am only lookin for 1100 for em'. there brand new and the tires on them are worth over 800 alone. i can do a payment plan. lol.... depends on where you live and if you want'em shipped. none the less, anyone says 20;s are gay on a civic, they'll be jerkin themselves to your ride once you roll up.

I gotta say I am tempted but I would have to drop out of college for like a year just to pay for them hahahah but thx a lot anyway!! good luck selling them, just put em on ebay, shouldnt take long
