KTeller SS Mandrel Exhaust Piping

Ordered this kit from kteller on honda tech. It is an excellent kit and they always give more than enough pipe for what you need. The customer service for them is great as well. It looks great on my car!

It's probably 2.5" OD which Depending on the wall thickness Should be around 2 3/8" ID. Also there website has Civic 2 Door, Civic 4 Door, 2.25 2.5 and 3" Listed in the item details for the 5th Lude Gen Kits

So the purpose of getting the 2.5" kit from keteller is that its 2.5" compared to 60mm or 2.3" cat backs from manufactures, thus having a little more flow. So when looking at manufactured catbacks are the ID 60mm or 60mm OD ?

60mm = 2.36 inches so you def coulda done better on the piping imo but to each their own

eh i didnt like my kteller 3 inch kit. i had to cut pipes to make it fit under the back suspension. i also had to wait over 2 months for mine and after a month they responded to m 10 emails i sent to them. if i were anyone i would just go to a muffler shop or a performance shop. just my $0.02

I have the same three inch kit. i just had to cut length off the straight pipe portion to fit the resonator in. Started from back end to header, then tacked everything in placed. Pulled it out welded all joints. So its not a bolt on kit.

Sir, if you can email me a link where this is listed, we can fix it. I do not see this anywhere and maybe it was a misclick from the past. I just want to make sure everything is listed as best as possible for our customers.

seems like user error...

on another thread you said they were crap, here you say everything was nice...

maybe you should have let someone else install it for you and you wouldnt have had so many issues.

i did it with a guy that owns a exhaust shop, has his own mandril bender, and has been doing exhaust for over 30 years. yup user error
and yes the fitment was crap, why should u have to cut 2 sections 5 times on a prefit exhaust?? the polished stainless was nice, but thats about it. and when it took over a month and a half to get, when they ignore email and calls. idk maybe i got a shitty few bends that usually doesnt happen.

just because you have the tools and thirty years under your belt doesnt mean squat. he could have been doing half assed work for the past thirty years. its a pre-bent KIT for custom exhaust. you HAVE to cut it, but cutting it five times to fit sounds like you and the master exhaust guy didnt know what you were doing. im not arguing with you, but you slam kteller here and on another thread but then you try to back peddle and say nice things about them...user error dude, sorry.

lol ok guy, the s bend b4 the axle hit the under side of my car in 2 spots because it wasnt bent soon enough. and the bends that go over the axle were not right and made the exhaust sit to low, so we had to cut pipes to make it sit higher and didnt fit right under the axle befor we cut them. but w.e i dont know anything. like i said, other people like it, but i didnt have a good expirience with fitment

It does sit a little low under the back suspension, so you see a big (3") ass exhaust pipe when following my car, but I installed it that way with no problems.

without seeing it , its hard for me to make a great adjustment comment, but do you have any room to adjust the hangers to bring the system back up to the chassis? A lot of people dont realize you can make adjustment with the hangers, their bend and the grommets used to hold them. that might not help but its just an idea.

"snoboarder636", i am sorry you had a bad experience. In most situations, an order wont take more then 3 days to get out. Why your might of took so long, i have no idea. Perhaps material was out, machine was done or something else, not sure, but i am sorry for your experience and if i can help you in the future any way let me know. I'd like you to have a second experience with KTeller and it be a lot better then what you feel you got the first time.
