Default Question for people with exhausts....

okay I know where you think im going with this ("which exhaust is the best?") but its not like that.

Heres my thing. when the car was stock, or even with just intake 1st gear was the danger zone. attempting to "cruize" in 1st gear produced nothing but whiplash when the car eeked back and forth every time I came off the throtle. Now with the exhaust, 1st is almost liveable. is this the result (and i think it is) of less backpressure at low revs due to my 2.5 inch piping?

Anyone else loose the "herky jerky" first gear effect?

yeah the "bucking bronco" is normal for our scoobs, I got my exhaust on and yeah it did kinda reduce the buck, but still does it in low RPMs in stop and go driving

Now that you mention it, yeah, I have noticed the same thing since adding the Stromung.

I drive in stop and go traffic every day. That bucking was hard on me and the car. After installing an intake (Weapon-R) the bucking went away and the throttle smoothed out. I added the exhaust later. It didn't have much of an effect at that point.

I thought this happens in all cars with manual. My Civic did it. So does my RS (w/ Stromung). The best way to reduce the buck is not to let go the gas all the way. At high RPM on the 1st gear, when trying to let the gas go, just tap your foot on the gas pedal and keep it there (about a few % throttle if you can read it w/ a SAFC).

Mine is almost completely gone now that I replaced ALL of the stock bushings with urethane. Engine & trans came from Primitive.
