Does anyone make a 250 cpi or 300 cpi header back X-pipe?

Maybe that would get rid of the check engine lights?
It seems even the quality 200 cpi cats are setting off Check Engine lights (Fabspeed).

I believe it, but the question is, do they throw CELs?

Makes power for sure, shouldn't throw a CEL. I'm getting it on this Saturday and post a review if people want. I already have experience with Riss Racing's 200cell HFC and can compare power/smell.

Did you dyno with the Riss unit?

That would be a great comparison.

Did you get the Remus on?

It will definetly make power any x-pipe with 1 set of high flow cats will make power over stock. Even deleting one set of cats from the stock x-pipe will make power and all the x-pipes available will have a small cell count then stock so Its guranteed to make power Obviously not as much as full catless but you will keep some low end tourqe at least.

Very interested to know. According to Powertrip HFC's SMELL regardless of CPI quality.

Strangely I've been getting varying opinions as to whether or not HFC's with a Vertible are liveable.

Cali-convertible says he doesn't notice any smell at all with his Fabspeed set up.

Thanks.

I did dyno with the Riss unit on. I made 376whp? I made 381whp with Gintani's catless x-pipe but my tune was not and is still not optimized.

I'll be installing their HFC this Saturday while optimizing the tune and dyno'ing it.

You can smell exhaust with HFC's I have Fabspeed setup and although it's not nearly as bad as no cats, it definitely smells more than OEM. You can tell there is a race cat on there.

Those are great numbers. Was the Riss with a tune? Was the first Gintani dyno with the same tune?

are the cats a requirement for you?? (not sure about your state laws) here there is no car inspections. if not then check out the Dinan midpipe. i have it and love it. i have the matching software. no CEL problems, awesome power increase and amazing sound with no drone. best mod i have done so far. if cats are a must for you then that would be a problem

Cali is THE MOST STRICT state for smog.

You have to not only pass the sniffer, but a visual inspection. The sniffer is on a dyno too. It sucks here.
