Slight, but not that bad. I feel the midrange punch is down a few hp. I'm thinking this will change when I get my car re-tuned.

I dont have a cel but Ive only put about 35 miles on the car since installing them. I didnt take pic either but they look good. I like the way the back O2 sensors mount.

The cats are round - not squished like the factory ones so you lose roughly 1"- 2" of ground clearance. So far that hasnt been a a big deal but im not lowered.

Sorry we had 23" of snow last week and it's still on the ground. I haven't started my car in 2 weeks. LOL

I'll get it outside and get some pics soon.

any reason why gintani can't just post a pic of their hfc? i searched and there are like no pictures of their exhaust uninstalled. is there a secret or something ?

all i see are installed pics, seriously a studio shot or just the exhaust itself will show wonders.
