After having my Integra for a few weeks one of the things that I found pleasantly surprising was the exhaust sound. I haven't really seen any content out there that shows this off. For those out there that are curious and/or don't have the opportunity to be able to drive an Integra I took a video of a short drive around the neighborhood.

video of a short drive
Nice video, thanks for sharing. I agree, the sound is pleasant. I thought I heard the sound of some rev-matching in your video too!
I was actually thinking about this last night. I had a similar experience with a brand new 1982 Plymouth Horizon TC3 Turismo 2.2. It had a nice bark to it. But when I replaced the exhaust at 30Kmiles I lost it and never got it back. Something to watch out for I guess.

lmao this is one thing I hate about this car.

It'll be hard to make it louder. The exhaust is too good, I doubt most aftermarket exhaust options will sound this good. @86amr how far away can you hear the exhaust?

The reason I even made the video is that I can very clearly hear the burbles while driving the car. At WOT shifting from 1st to 2nd you also get the occasional POP POP POP. I will have to put the camera on a tripod and see what I can capture as far as distance. Why is this something you hate about the car though? I think I am misunderstanding...

The stock exhaust probably isn't as loud as I would like it but the tone is soo good that I wouldn't want to mess with it. If it sounded like a blowdryer it would be an easy decision lol.

You could probably swap out the down pipe to make it louder, but I agree....I don't think there is any aftermarket exhaust that could actually make it sound better.

Thanks a lot for posting this @86amr! Who doesn't love some pops and bangs when they're going for a drive. I'm glad Acura didn't go overboard with it.
