The design engineers at Thermal R&D could hardly wait to get their hands on the much anticipated Honda Type R. True to form, the focus was not on being the first to market, but rather putting out the best combination of performance, sound and style. Fortunately, the engineers at Honda did the heavy lifting on the performance. An animal in the performance category for a car its size, sound and the tip needed to be the primary focus, knowing that some gains would come naturally from the expanded tubing diameter. Optimizing the sound to be more aggressive (without allowing drone) and the tip section were executed beautifully as part of an overall high quality upgrade that this car deserved. This true 3” cat back exhaust system that maintains all the original hangers and is a direct fit install.
Additional Notes: Designers wanted to maintain the triple-exit tip since it was very unique to the Honda Type R. With a 3” system, sound control was a must. An internal rear chamber utilizes Thermal’s unique ‘True Helmholtz Technology’ (THT) TM to control drone while keeping the aggressive turbo growl. This allows for drone cancelling when cruising, but keeps the aggressive deep, throaty notes on acceleration.
