Fits: 2009-2014 Acura TSX
Product Type: Dual SP2 Catback
The 2009-2014 Acura TSX is a car that exhibits a combination of class and performance, so why put anything less on it? The Tsudo Acura TSX SP2 Catback Exhaust and Test Pipe Combination is an exhaust system that combines style and class with performance to bring out the most out of the 2.4 L K24Z3 engine. The exhaust tips fit perfectly with the body lines of the car and gives it a pristine clean look. The tips are polished stainless steel to give a subtle, but noticable result. Don't be fooled by the clean look though, fire up the 2.4 liter inline four under the hood and the exhaust comes to life with a deep exhaust note. Let your foot down and hear the deep aggresive notes as the engine climbs the rpms. It is the perfect combination of function, form and style.
The Tsudo Acura TSX SP2 Dual Cat-back and test pipe exhaust system does much more than just look good. It will increase the horsepower, torque and throttle response of your TSX at noticable levels. This is achieved by using CNC machine mandrel bent stainless steel tubing with a perforated core. In addition the included test pipe is 2.75" tuned piping with a secondary cat delete for the most gains available. What this means is that your Acura TSX has a smooth, unrestricted free flowing exhaust throughout the entire system. Many big name companies will cut corners and not use this process to save time and money, by doing this they develop borrlenecks and choke points throughout the exhaust system that will restrict the flow and, even worse, your power. It is manufactured using the highest quality 100% T-304 Stainless Steel, this not only increases corrosion resistance and durability, but reduces a significant amount of weight compared to the stock OEM exhaust. No fabrication is needed either, the Tsudo Acura TSX-S Dual SE Catback Exhaust and Test Pipe uses the factory hangers and includes all bolts and gaskets.
One stop purchase at SEMotors and your exhaust system is complete.
Fast shipping by SE Motors. Ordered Sunday night, package shipped Monday, and received in MN on Friday. Product arrived in a big box, wrapped in bubble wrap and foam for the tips and hangers.
Install went smoothly until I got to the hardware for the mid pipe. The gaskets fit fine, but the bolts are too short for the mid pipes to thread the nut on. They only work for the rear exhaust canister to connect together. I ended up having to buy longer bolts to connect the mid pipes, but this is a good problem as the flanges are nice and thick.
First installed with the test pipe. You will reuse your OEM spring bolts to connect to the down pipe. IT IS LOUD, but a deep rumble and not your typical 4 cyl screamer. It's hard to explain, but the bassier pitch frequency makes it hard to have a conversation in the cabin with the windows up.
I went back under and removed the test pipe and replaced with OEM 2nd cat. The mid pipe does bolt up to the pressed in bolts on the cat flange. There isn't much thread, but the nut will go on to make it snug. This has seemed to quiet it down a little bit. If the full exhaust with test pipe was a 10, removing the test pipe put it down to 8.5. Will have to see if the exhaust will get louder or quieter as it breaks in.
