So when I bought my car over a year ago it had a loud ass exhaust. Got it replaced with a RSR ExMag. Sounds nice, but now you hear the engine. Which is really loud. Abnormally loud. I'm not sure what would make it loud like this. I'm comparing it to other tegs. I know my clutch needs to get replaced but I dont think that this would cause it to be loud. Also it has air intake on there. Would that cause it to be louder also?

If you have any suggestions or have this prob. give me some feedback plz.

Loud like how? The intake makes the engine itself louder, but usually an exhuast system will only heighten the loudness of the exhuast. You might have a vacuum leak or an exhaust leak somewhere.

If it is a short intake that is why.

my cai...all u hear is that whispering sound and it comes from outside of the car...i also have a muffler..and i can tell the difference between my muffler and my engine. VENIDERO ..i think all integra engines have that deep sounding roar. its odd. around 5k+ with full throttle on the gas pedal u hear as if your engine is gon' explode..but damn does my LS move quick ;) i think its normal?

why would the intake make it louder? Just more air goin to the engine?
The stock airbox muffles the sound significantly because the filter is sitting inside a box.

When you say the engine is loud, is there a particular sound? Maybe a ticking, hissing, thumping, etc...

GSR=Loud naturally

GSR+ Intake & Exhaust = even louder.

Integra's are not luxury car.
I suppose it's all relative, but a stock GS-R is actually very quiet. Even at high RPM it's noticably quieter than many other cars I've driven. My father's G35 is a whole hell of a lot louder, and that's a luxury car. Just my two cents.

A loud exhaust can sometimes bury the sound of the intake... unless it sounds like somethings wrong, it'd be the intake. An option to quiet it down would be a comptech icebox.

I figured i'd ask. Being that I had a loud exhaust where I couldnt even talk in the car that the previous owner installed to the new one. I thought the car was loud still. Figured i'd ask. Dont want anything wrong with my car. ;/

Well since we are talking about his integra, I would not compare it to a G35. The Integra GSR is louder then a RS/LS/GS/SE since the GSR revs higher.

I wasnt comparing the GSR to other sports cars, I was saying it is a sports cars, and people don't expect a sports car to be very quiet. Especially with an aftermarket intake and exhaust.

IMO ive noticed the RS/LS/GS/SE to be louder than the GSR with an intake.  the GSR's rumble doesnt seem as deep as my RS.....its ALOT louder mid and high RPM....but thats IMO

Dude, It's most likely your intake. The short ram is just letting you hear the natural sound of the engine that the stock air box muffled. IMO it is badass.
