Thumbs up Apexi World Sport Catback Exhaust

EDIT: Sound clips added below

I purchased this a 2 weeks ago from www.optauto.com for $455 + shipping and installed this last weekend and finally got around to posting a review.

First, the specs:
2.5" Aluminized steel piping that tapers up to 3" before the muffler
Polished Stainless steel oval shaped muffler, straight thru design
Straight Thru resonator located on the midpipe
4" angle cut tip with engraved Apexi logo
Utilizes the stock donut gasket
Includes new hardware and gaskets for the flange at the rear section

Install was simple and took me about 40 minutes to remove the stock system and bolt up the new one. The fit and finish were excellent and the welds and quality looked really good.

Fired her up and noticed it sounded almost stock, exactly what I was hoping for. After driving for the past week and breaking it in, it's increased a little in volume, but overall still very quiet, and MUCH quieter than my previous Blitz Nur Spec axleback. I sold the Blitz because I'm going catless (PDE downpipe and Godspeed uppipe waiting to be installed) and don't want an annoyingly loud system.

The system has a very subtle look with a tasteful single 4" tip and a large oval muffler. It looks good tucked up inside the exhaust cutout of my C-West rear lip.

Performancewise, I really didn't notice much change. At the moment I only have this catback and a Greddy intake, but the car definitely feels quicker at higher RPM's and I really feel no loss of lowend or midrange power at all. Overall, I'm very pleased.

Sound clips:
Driving around the block (Higher quality wav, large file)

Some pics (better ones coming soon). Excuse my filthy car

world sport is a great exhaust as far as bveing quiet and build quality and affordability. only problem (last i checked) was it isnt straight through... and on a turbo car, that is a problem. i usually dont even recommend these exhausts for a high performance honda.

Both the muffler and the resonator are a straight through design, you can see directly through the muffler to the other side. These are quiet systems cuz the rear muffler is huge with a lot of packing to help reduce the volume, similar to the Greddy Evo muffler.
