Question:

What is an axle-back when referring to exhaust? Is it the same thing as a muffler?

Looking to get Civic si axle-back on my r18 ex. Sorry for noobness.

Answer:

Probably a muffler and tailpipe tip on your car I think. Maybe the pipe in front of that too. Lots of older/rear wheel drive cars have the muffler in front of the axle. Just a tailpipe would cover everything over and behind the axle on those. What's with all the thumbs down? A lot of D-A's here today I guess.

Old term, 'from the axle back'. That front pipe and 'Cat.' run hotter and so rust slower, so it's common for that rear section of pipe, muffler, and tail-piece to rust out first.

The muffler and the tip. Catback is from the catalytic converter back.
