Cool bro just clarifying. I know what you meant but you may have some newb that knows nothing about HFC's, midpipes, etc and may read your post to come across that the entire Fabspeed setup is a "waste of money".

Gintani X pipe FTW! U should call and see if they can give u a good deal on their tune as well. This will eliminate the cell light and add at least 15+ whp. Since u are local to them. I live by Pasadena as well and Gintani is like 25 mins. from me.

Fabspeed is not a waste of money. No cel and 22hp and 17fpt on dyno with x-pipe hfc with resonators stock muffler and filter from Ape performance. Note that the dyno was done on a 10 degree hotter day than the baseline stock run.

Easy big guy, I didn't say it was a waste of money. I said doing an x-pipe w/o eliminating the primary cats (or adding HFC's) is a waste of money. I've got a dyno showing the Fabspeed x-pipe (only) and Rogue pulley only adding 8hp peak, so I'm speaking from experience there.
