FabSpeed: Installed

so i got my Fabspeed x-pipe installed the other day....holy crap...the car sounds awesome. it sounded alright b4 with just the axel-back....but now it sounds just plain EVIL. i love it and the extra power and torque too. 80 to 95 on the highway in .0000000005 seconds, haha. The quality of the part is amazing too, tho i do have an issue with the drivers side cat hitting the heat shield. i punched the shield up as far as it could go and the cat is basically smashing the heat shield against the floor board. its ok tho, i get some vibration in the gas pedal under heavy throttle, but thats it. i had some of that b4 anyways. I will post vids later tonight

Any change you could capture a quick video of it? I've contemplated doing the exact same combo, and it would be a HUGE help

Thus setup sounds A LOT like mine (I have x-pipe + HFC and AA axle-back). It is so mean and the power gains are amazing. Evil is definitely the right word. Love it, great setup man.
