Default Recomendations for not loose power in exhaust

Hey everybody i have a 95 civic ex d16z6 1.6l vtec......... So far i have cold air intake and a 3Apex muffler 2'5 inches inlet and interior piping with a 6"body and 4"tip. First is this too big?? am i loosing power? Well i want to put some headers and a cat back. Will all this thing will drown my power considering hte backpressure myth article??? my resonator is broken...should i take it off and replaced it or just leave the broken one???.. it buzz sometimes. What about hte piping.. i got the stock.. how wide pipes can i put in adition to all that stuff i want to do?? Now my car is loud and i know that with headers and cat back it will get louder so once again should i relace the resonator for another one???


Thanks people for listening .. your help will be deeply apreciated.

muffler dosnt add power or anything like that, muffler just make it so ur exhaust isnt extremely loud. as for cat-back piping go with 2.25 inch tubing, 2.5 to 3 inch tubing works better on boosted cars. i suggest just buying a magnaflow or meganracing catback exhaust, they come with resonators built into the midpipe and will sound good. and chill with the question marks...

Thank you very much dude. so i should put 2.25inches piping cause my car is not boosted and install a magnaflow or megan cat-back rigth? does the cat-back come in 1 universal measurement or the come in different size of piping? Considering hte cat back has a resonator should i remove the broken one or leave it there?

Yes get 2.25" piping. If you want to save some $ though you could always make a custom setup. Anyways if you're looking for some cheap prices, go to www.performancepeddler.com. I got all of my magnaflow stuff off of there and it was way cheaper. They also have a bunch of other companies too. For example I just looked and on Magnaflow's website their cat-back system for a 95 civic is $484.00. The same system on performancepeddler is $374.01. Good luck
