Mon Sep 05 2022

If you're trying to impress girls and show off to your friends then you've come to the right guide. We are going to teach you how to build the ultimate Honda Civic exhaust system that will disorient passerbys in parking garages and will be guaranteed to make heads turn wherever you go. Welcome to the ultimate guide on how to rice a Honda Civic.
We will be reviewing what parts to buy, what's most important, and even some extra things you can do to improve the overall wow factor of your car. Follow this guide closely and you will have an exhaust note as loud and high pitch as the tinnitus you may be causing innocent pedestrians as you pass them by.
How to Get That Perfect Note?
The 3 Rules for Perfect Riced Exhaust
So you want to learn how to rice a Honda Civic. The first thing to do is to get your priorities straight. Keep these 3 rules as your guiding principles and you will achieve greatness (in the form of a riced civic).
1) High pitch: make sure you aren't aiming for a deep sound, that's for the old boomers and their muscle cars. You want a quick, high-pitch zoom.
2) Loud: loud, louder, loudest. THIS is the primary goal above all others.
3) Cheap: The cheaper the better. We know you're on a budget.
These 3 rules will be your guiding principles. Keep in mind you are going for form over function. You want to SOUND fast, that'll make you look fast, feel fast, and BE cool.
Step 1: Get a Fart Can
Due to the host of benefits, ease of installation, and low cost, Jester of the SearchExhaust.com blog has decided to recommend installing a fart can as the first step for any proud new Honda Civic owner or first-time ricer. Keep in mind the 3 rules of riced exhaust outlined above, the advanced modifications below can wait.
What is a fart can you ask? A fart can is the colloquial name for an affordable muffler designed to improve the loudness factor of your vehicle without affecting its performance. It really is a no-brainer decision to start here.
Once you've got your fart can you can move on to the more advanced mods outlined below or skip straight ahead to visual improvements outlined near the end of this article.
Absolutely No Resonators
Resonators absorb the raspiness of your exhaust note. This is going to destroy that sound you are going for. You must make sure you remove your resonator and certainly don't upgrade it.
Resonators are unnecessary, ugly, heavy, wastes of space. Sell or scrap yours and put those funds towards a cheap sub so you can achieve that perfect screw rattling effect which WILL impress the right kind of girls.
Aftermarket exhaust tips are a crucial part of your build. Smaller tips are going to get you closer to that perfect note. Unless you are trying to go for gapping diesel truck look. Exhaust tips are so important because they are the one part of your Civic exhaust system that's going to be visible. You need to make sure your exhaust tips show off how much time and consideration you put into modding your exhaust system. Perhaps you can even find some heart-shaped exhaust tips, all of the lady's men them now.
Turbos may make your vehicle more performant but they dampen the exhaust note, damaging the audio soundscape you're striving to achieve, not to mention the price of turbos. A great alternative is to buy a fake turbo or turbo whistle. These imitation turbos really are a wonderful innovation, a device which emulates the sound of a turbo without the downsides. Then you can achieve that turbo sound without hurting that beautiful broken lawn mower wine.
The two primary options are a turbo whistle or an electronic imitation turbo. The electronic turbo is going to give you a lot better sounds and, better than a real turbo, you can get that turbo sound even when your car is off. The turbo whistle is going to be a lot cheaper and easier to install. Both of these options are better than a real turbo, which is obviously off the table.
How to Buy Components
ONLY buy no-name exhaust off of eBay or Amazon, the experts agree this is the real professional way to achieve that perfect Honda Civic ricer exhaust note. You can often find replicas of high-quality name brands, which will definitely help save you money.
If you're a high roller, you can pick up your components from AutoZone or other local parts stores but YOU MUST BE CAREFUL, selecting from an auto parts store, many components are not going to give you that perfect farting sound you are searching for. You must make sure to only select the cheapest parts you can find, anything else just won't feel authentic.
Visual Performance: Improving the Aesthetic
Now that you've made your car louder, it's time to make your car look louder. These next couple of visual mods will surely have the right kind of potential sexual partners flocking to you.
Really, the more the better. Instead of buying expensive parts, just buy the stickers. Go ahead and slap that HRE, BBS, or Akrapovic sticker on your back glass.
Special Stick Subclass: Anime Stickers
Anime stickers are not for every Honda Civic ricer, but they certainly add to the overall aesthetic. Lewd stickers can be purchased cheaply and they add to that bad boy vibe that's going to get you the hot car girl.
You can buy WHOLE packs of these off Amazon. Take the best for yourself and slap a few on your friend's cars as a nice surprise present.
Fake Carbon Fiber
Just yes. Purchase as much fake carbon fiber as you possibly afford and apply the peel and stick carbon fiber on everything you can get your hands on. Fuel door, side mirrors, hood, console, dash, the key is for it to be EVERYWHERE.
It's important to get the biggest wing on your car that you can because you know what they say about big wings 😏. Now big wings do have their advantages, unfortunately for you, you drive a Honda Civic and won't be able to take advantage of them.
You've absolutely got to get a cheap sub off Amazon for the trunk. The extra weight will hurt performance a bit but we both know that performance is not what you are going for. If you're really lucky, you can find some blown-out speakers on Facebook marketplace for cheap, whichever floats your boat, or should I say, 2007 Honda Civic. Just make sure to have some jumper cables or a jump box for when you inevitably drain your battery.
It's important to have some examples as a guide, so here you go.
