After many months of extensive research, we are pleased to offer our Dream 3" Valved exhaust system.
Our system has been developed with a few goals in mind a Unique design, distinctive sound and strong performance. We have set out to develop an exhaust system based around a decated car. Most owners will be aware the larger gain in power would be from replacing the downpipe installed onto the K20C1 engine found in the FK8 Civic Type R.
With Trackday noise limits in place across the UK we have certain limits we need to obtain.
With the want for utilising an aftermarket downpipe during trackday conditions this would be the basis for our development to start from.
Utilising 3" 76mm Aerospace-grade, non-magnetic stainless steel pipework used for the entire system, we have smoothed restriction points resulting in performance gains that can be dyno proven.
UK built, hand-finished welds and precision jigged construction, results in an exhaust that fits as per OEM, but with a gain in sound and performance.
The system is offered in a few options of sound level
ROAD - with front silencer - with mid silencer - with valved rear silencer (Best for decatted cars) 92/93Db - decatted
TRACK - NO front silencer - with mid silencer - with valved rear silencer (Best for decatted cars) 95/96Db - decatted
RACE - with front silencer - NO mid silencer - with valved rear silencer (Best for standard downpipe) 98/99Db - decatted
RACE+ - NO front silencer - NO mid silencer - with valved rear silencer (for Standard downpipe only)
We have incorporated the use of a valve on our system to allow for adjustments of the tone and volume, allowing for any further variations in Db. Interchangeable silencers will allow you to upgrade your system to the next level at any point. All systems will include the front pipe situated between downpipe and steering rack area.
The system is offered with x2 tailpipe options of Brushed or Polished stainless steel.

The Dream Automotive Replacement CAT pipe for the Civic FK8 is made from lightweight T304 stainless steel for longer life and to give the owner a higher flow rate with reduced back pressure to release the engine's full capabilities.
The de-cat pipe incorporates a tangential bend turbo outlet ensuring a perfect transition through its 3.5" bend tapered down to a 3" exhaust outlet. Hand-made to the highest UK Motorsport standards, TIG welded, using water cut machined flanges we can promise an OEM fitment.
We have two types of heat management that are available for you to choose from:
Hard Lagging is when the insulation material is directly attached to the downpipe.
The process involves the insulation material wrapped directly around the pipe. A metallic skin is then micro spot welded directly to the pipe to secure and seal the insulation material in place. The metallic skin also acts as part of the thermal barrier by providing additional heat resistance. hard lagging can withstand temperatures of up to 1200°C
Zircotec ceramic coating offers a 30% heat reduction, in comparison to a non-coated item. It is in effect “welded” to the substrate using our proprietary metal bond system; eliminating the need for exhaust wrap; protecting components against corrosion, and continuing to perform and look good. Zircotec coating can withstand temps of up to 900°C
