When I downshift or rev it to high rpm's, and let the rpm's drop back down the exhaust sounds terrible!(especially in first gear)

Time for an upgrade? o2 sensor gone? new muffler?

The baffles in your muffler are gone. Either buy a oem replacement or grab an aftermarket muffler or axleback. If you want quiet grab the oem muffler or a aftermarket chambered one.

Could also be a hole in the muffler or an exhaust leak. Put it on a lift and check for rusty holes or cracks. If none, then replace your muffler. If I'm not mistaken Honda has a lifetime warranty on our mufflers, so you can get a new one for free. (True on 01's, anyway) But I'd just take this opportunity to justify getting a nice aftermarket exhaust. If you hate the ricey sound, as do I and most people here, just get a Thermal R&D, Evo2, or custom piping (like the Kteller kit, for instance) w/ either a Mugen style or Magnaflow muffler.

yeah, i think it might be a leak, because the sound comes from the right side of the car right beside the wheel. How much would an OEM replacement be?

I've also heard a Greddy SP2 that was incredibly quiet. I mean the guy started it up and I think it was quieter than stock. Of course it was a full catback and cost like $600 but it sounded really good. Plus with aftermarket exhaust you'll be able to gain a little bit of power

I just said in the above post that Honda has a lifetime warranty on our mufflers so they should fix it for free. Just go to a reputable dealer and tell them to fix it. I don't know for sure, but I would assume Honda's reason for doing this is that they didn't want to see 5gs running around sounding like shit b/c of bad mufflers or exhaust leaks, b/c 5gs are just to nice to sound like that. Therefore, if you put a fartcan on ur BB6, Honda will hunt you down and kill you. Be afraid, ricers, be very afraid! :smilejap:
