I have that setup but no videos. The sounds has been described in words in some detail by me and others. Good luck if you decision is pending. An overall fantastic mod for both sound and performance.

I have had test pipes and two different x-pipes with HFC. Test pipes are a great bargain with all the performance but the sound actually differs quite a bit and the 2 xpipes (encore and AA) sounded better. So if money is no option I would go with an xpipe. If you want the cheapest solution with still same power go test pipes

test pipes and stock x-pipe are way to go for the cost and the sound
