All i know it's going to be loud! smell yes if you have the HFC too and it's going be even louder. My friend had the Fabspeed HFC and xpipes together paired with the exhausts and was insanely loud. Let's say its not even the GT or Gt2 version.

Why I do it , because I love loud , and some thing when you listen to it you can feel the power ,!
But what I'm worry is the drone and smell !
I don't have the HFC with it because I'm afraid the CEL will on !!

What is the performance gain with mine exhaust combination !

And is these fabspeed xpipe perfectly fit to the OEM Cat ??

fitment is good, i have the HFC with the extender, no CEL whatsover. Noticeable gains. You are right, i think the sound/loudness symbolizes power somehow. Not the fart can. LOL

I have the Meisterschaft GT with Fabspeed HFC and resonated X-pipe. It's LOUD. And it doesn't sound very good, just loud. The Meisterschaft GT and GT2 sound very good with the OEM x-pipe but get way too loud and sound bad with catless x-pipes.

It smells more at start up and there is a little bit of smell when stopped after the HFC are heated up. There is some drone. I don't mind some drone so it doesn't bother me.

The Fabspeed HFC fit is terrible. Mine rubs on the transmission cross-member making a horrible noise. Others have had this issue also. Also, since Fabspeed uses round HFC, there is not enough space for them so they will rub on the heat shield. You will get a CEL eventually, even with extenders. Mine only took a few minutes to come on and won't go off.

I wouldn't get either of these parts again (unless I was keeping the OEM x-pipe, then I'd get the Meisterschaft).

I have the Fabspeed HFC & xpipe. The smell isn't too bad and there is def a noticible gain in power & torque throughout the entire power band. I did get a CEL after a couple hundred miles then I installed aftermarket angled extenders. I got a CEL again after about a hundred miles so I took it back to the shop and threw it on the lift. I had to adjust it by pulling it out a bit more and I haven't got a CEL since and it's been close to 2000 miles
