2018 Honda Civic Type R triple exhaust

Honda Civic Si Raising compactThe middle pipe is a different diameter and sits slightly askew of the outer two pipes. That pipe is essentially a resonator, while the other two are straight-through exhausts. However, the centre one can, at certain speeds, act like an intake – due to negative pressure – and thus lessen the booming noise you might experience inside the car at high speeds.

The shapely five-door hatchback is bristling with splitters, slats and air ducts and brandishing a dramatic rear wing. Equally eye-catching is its set of three tailpipes, protruding from under the rear bumper like banzai bazookas.

“This resonance causes what we call a booming noise or a droning noise, which is not very convenient when you’re travelling long distances, for example here in Germany on the autobahn for hours,” he said. “By creating a negative pressure in the centre tail-pipe, we can shift the frequency to another band so that it will not resonate within the cabin, and by this measure we can reduce the booming noise.”

It was noticeable – at 120km/h there was still a fair amount of exhaust noise intrusion into the cabin, but at 200km/h on the autobahn the more noticeable noise was wind around the A-pillars and mirrors, with the exhaust seemingly silencing itself, to a small degree.
