Injen Engineering just dropped its full cat back exhaust for the 2016 Honda Civic.
It’s open season for aftermarket performance for the 2016 Honda Civic 1.5T and Injen, as far as we know, is one of the first companies to fire its opening salvo. Earlier Thursday Injen Engineering uploaded a video of its 3″ Cat-back exhaust system onto YouTube and first impressions are solid for this bolt-on. The piece adds power and it most importantly, sounds great.
Keep in mind that Injen was also one of the first companies to release a full cold-air intake for the new Civic that added a whopping 29 HP and 25 Lb-Ft of torque (you can read what we thought of that CAI in the link below.) Have a listen to the install process and exhaust clip of the Civic with a little bit better breathing below and let us know what you think about how it sounds in the comments below.

First impressions on the install process are promising. If you didn’t already know, Honda stuffed a dual exhaust stock underneath the chassis. For this particular system, Injen opted for the cleaner single-exit exhaust. Like pretty much all Honda’s and modifications, ripping out the old system and installing the new one was a drama-free affair with the new exhaust system utilizing all the factory hangers and existing hardware. It looks like it would take your average car enthusiast two hours max to install.
And there are no performance gains, what’s the point? You can take Injen’s dyno sheets to the bank as this Cat-Back system adds a solid 8HP and 7 Lb-Ft. While your butt dyno might not feel it when you WOT down your neighborhood streets, you’ll definitely hear it.
Thankfully, Injen Engineering has good taste when it comes to overall tone as this exhaust system does the 1.5T justice. A nice deep tone throughout the entire rev-range without that buzzy bee “ricer” sound associated with a cheaper exhaust system is what we can hear.
The full system is already on sale on ProCivic.com for $680.
Injen has put out a real winner here and this exhaust system should sell like hotcakes. We can’t wait to see (err..hear) what other companies will put out next. Especially from those JDM companies across the Pacific (we’re looking at you Spoon Sports, 5Zigen and Apexi.)
