I had that off-road pipe and...

it was loud...hella loud...really loud with my Vibrant Exhaust & JBA Shorty!


As for performance...I couldn't really tell, because when I took my car to the 1320, I had bad times...probably due to the pipe being cracked like a mofo!


*welds on the off-road pipe sucked a fat one!*

I have a buddy here in Houston that came to visit me at work one time:

He has:
JBA Street Header
FC Downpipe
FC Flexpipe
Borla Exhaust

Not only could I hear him IDLE but I could feel him drive by.

Install is easy if you have all the hardware.
Plan on about 30-40 minutes.
And good luck with the gasket where the
manifold/header meets OR pipe.
I've been through three of them now.

It will be louder than having your cat,
but not as loud as race header on.
I'm not sure about performance gains.
To say I didn't notice is not to say there
were NO gains.

I have one but i need to replace it. I bent it all up when i went up on a curb. It does make the car pretty loud. As far as performance it dropped .2 sec of my 1/4 mile.
FS shorty
FC off-road pipe
Yodude flex
Magnaflow exhaust.
