I have a 2020 Accord 2.0T Touring:
Current performance mods setup:
  • PRL Front Pipe
  • RV6 Catted DownPipe
  • PRL Intercooler
  • Mishimoto Cold Air intake
  • Mishimoto Catch Can
  • KTuner with Pherable Stage 3 (Plan to do a DROB tune when the build is "done")
  • Eibach Lowering Springs
  • Eibach Front and rear sway bars
  • DC Sports Front Strut Towerbar
  • Hasport Upper and Rear Engine Torque mounts
I'm debating between getting the MagnaFlow and the DC Sports Exhaust kits. Which one would make more power? I like the sound of the DC sports more, but don't think it's worth the price, especially cuz the MagnaFlow seems better built and includes hangers for each pipe. However, it does lack exhaust tips.
I guess my logic with having a 3" FP and DP wouldn't the MagnaFlow be better to sustain boost since it's 2.5", or would it be better to go with the DC Sports @ 3"
If I went with the MagnaFlow anyone have any recommendations for what tips to get for it? Looking for wither big dual tips, or quad ones.
Thanks!

It sounds like you know what you want. Plus, DC is harder to come by these days.
How do you figure? I feel pretty split on the decision given the price and the specs, the DC sounds better in theory and exhaust clip wise, but the Magana flow is cheaper, gives more bang for the buck, is supposedly better built, and may be better for a DD car, wish it came with tips tho...

You're citing more reasons to go with magna vs DC. I'm happy with my DC tho. No issues with installation and the product looks great IMO. I went with DC because of the sound and looks. Price wasn't a factor in my decision.

I would go Thermal R&D. I run the Borla S Type and its very close to the DC in noise. You aren't going to be getting much gain HP wise from an exhaust on this platform. DP and FP pretty much make all the HP. Mostly the DP. You can add tips to any of those exhausts.

What was the reason you went for the DC? Just the sound, or...?

Good to know, thanks. Maybe I'll just get tips for the factory exhaust then since it really just comes down to looks and sound? Any that you would recommend?

Yea DP and front pipe is were you will get the most exhaust HP gains on this car. After that its not much of a HP gain over the stock exhaust. Could be a little but its more sound and looks.

A lot of guys do tips, remove the resonators and mufflers.

Personally, I plan on purchasing the DC Sports exhaust on my next pay day 🤑 Shhhh...Don't tell the wife LOL!

I was considering the Resonator delete, and muffler delete but decided it would probably be best to keep the OEM exhaust intact and not all chopped up. For this reason I started to research all the options available for the 2.0T Accord. Personally, I landed on the DC Sports for many reasons. Many people said it has a nice deep tone, and is not metallic in anyway. A deep tone was what I was searching for so I can avoid the Stereotypical ricer fart can/trumpet noise. The DC Sports Exhaust is made with T-304 Stainless Steel another plus. The quad tips also sold it for me as well, that was the look I wanted to achieve and it's great not having to find other tips to get tacked onto some of the other exhausts out there that do not come with them. I understand it is the priciest one out there unfortunately but it seems to be one of the highest quality exhausts for our cars as well so I am willing to shell out the money for it.

Hope you have room to store the factory exhaust because it’s crazy long and 2 pieces. Only piece that separates is the drivers side muffler.It’s about 11 and a half feet long.

Damn, I didn't realize that! Should have enough room to store it luckily. Although, my basement is slowly beginning to look like it is an Accord OEM parts store lol.
