Anyone have the gintani HFC x-pipe?

If you do, how do you like it? I just ordered it to be paired with the gintani sport system? I talked to the guys at Gintani and we decided this is my best option. I just wanted other opinions on how the sound will be? Is it louder than just the race exhaust axle back with no x pipe?

They also said this x pipe does not throw any codes . Im excited to see how much power I can get with this setup paired with their dyno tune and pully.

I have it.

I've compared the Gintani x-pipe to other 'traditional' x-pipe design (crosses X later like OEM) and using the same muffler it made the sound cleaner, and more exotic.

When adding an xpipe it adds to the sound after 4k rpm, also makes the whole note more throaty. If you just have an axle-back, even the aggressive sounds sound much more muted to me over 4k rpm.

Gintani xpipe w/ HFC is a great choice, I wouldn't trade mine for any other x-pipe on the market right now.

MrHarris - do you have this paired with your Dinan rear section now? What do you think? Sound quality? Power??

Any chance you can record it for us?
