I like the sound...should sound similar to my setup but with less rasp. Good hp gains here too.

I have the fabspeed HFCs + xpipe. Build quality is good, nice weight savings vs. stock. The slip fittings are not ideal - you will need to use liquid exhaust gasket or weld the slip fitting. I did the latter since I have the HFC front section anyway.

You won't gain much, if any, power from removing the secondary cats - have to remove the primaries for a noticeable difference in power.

Good luck!

I've always marveled at Fabspeeds quality, they're a great company with great parts. I personally would highly suggest it as I would run it on my personal car if I was in your position

Damn, that's a shame. When I do see these for sale on the forums they do sell pretty quickly. We sell quite a few brand new out of the box as well. Hopefully something else comes up for you, but in case it doesn't, you know I'll always be here! haha
