Here's a thread link on this topic below.
Personally I would look into the RV6 j-pipe. While I don't know the exact differences from 06-08 vs 09+ I would take the chance and if needed have an exhaust shop make any minor tweaks to get it to fit. With the RV6 precats any factory j-pipe is going to be a major choke point. The precats and j-pipe combo really wake up this engine and make the truck way more fun. Its still no race car but it goes so much better with the extra power.Check this video. I noticed a comment posted about the Ody j-pipe not working.
Also note another thread on this topic.
I noticed on the RV6 site the J-pipe they sell is only for the 06-08 model. I think using anything that's not specifically for the same year model Ridgeline would come with the risk of needing to be modded to fit. That would be an unknown cost to consider before moving away from a stock replacement pipe.
Thanks again for the links. I really would have wanted to order the rv6 jpipe as well but my pocket book really cannot handle 425$ USD and then the conversion to Canadian dollars. Just too big of a hit to take.
I have ordered the pcd kit ! I hope to receive it within a week or so. I have also purchased a brand new jpipe from my local Honda dealer. I plan on painting all of the pcds and jpipe in a high heat silver paint. I hope for a solid 15 to 20 hp and torque increase. I am unsure about deleting my third cat . I am afraid it will be too loud for my liking . I will be constructing a test pipe and I will try it out when I install the pcds.
I really wish someone in Canada would get into building performance jpipes for these j engines.
"Cheapest" might be to sell the stock replacement that you have & just weld in the universal that you want to use. Chances are it won't need replacing again while you own the truck. The muffler shop should be able to weld in universal flanges as well if you're unconformable with a full continuous pipe.I agree 100% Jonb.
What sucks is I recently got a brand new stock replacement 3rd cat given to me from a buddy . but now I'd like a high flow one . does anyone make a highflow cat thats bolt in ?
I am debating cutting off the flanges and welding them onto a universal magnaflow cat. Probably the cheapest way to go .
