Lets put it this way, it would look OK, but it would look better if it was lower
If you are gonna go ahead with this, you may wanna paint the top horizontal part black like it is in the Mugen RR. I was thinking about it, but then again I think I'd have to paint the hood, roof, and trunk black too to get it right.

Exhaust sounds good. Just 2.5 piping to a muffler, no resonator or anything? That's what I have except only 1 magnaflow muffler.

Thanks guys. Just a single resonator, in place of the stock Accord resonator, I believe this is the one they used..

Like the sound, not too loud, except when you really step on it. She'll sound better yet though with a 6MT (2014).

Wait yours is a v6 right? I thought on our cars we have 2 resonators? So you just run 1 14" to 2 vibrant mufflers?

Yup, it goes Cat -> 2.5" SS Pipe -> Resonator -> 2.5" SS Pipe -> Y Pipe -> 2.5" SS Pipes -> Vibrant Mufflers

Next time the car is up on a hoist, I'll snap up some pics of her underside.

Enjoying the last few weeks of summer
