Carb legal? If you're talking about the cats, the FI is a cat back so you keep your stock catalytic converters. It's 50 state legal.

What are the opinions on their resonated HFC? I don't think I have heard of anyone who has them. I want an exhaust that sounds great, but keeps the sound as tight as possible - no rasp, wheeze or hiss. I think the best way to do this and maintain CARB legality (which is important to me) is to get the resonated HFC, which I only know of FI to make, and I figure it might be most compatible with their CBE, which I plan to order at the same time.

Or would I be better off with the Berk HFC. It seems overwhelmingly like that is a popular combination, but I have never heard why in comparison to using FI's own resonated HFC or even the regular, non-resonated HFC. Do you think Tony will cut me a deal if I order the CBE and Res. HFC together?

iirc you get a slight break in price if you order multiple components but I could be wrong

I'm about a week from shipping. Currently have 18" stainless resonated CBE plus non-resonated cats.

Should I switch to 12" resonators?

I originally ordered the 18" res SS with res HFc's. I changed my order to 12" res SS cans and still retained the res hfc's. This combo will limit any rasp (if any) and retain a deep low growl.

NR is only plausable if you've got FI. Otherwise you're gonna say goodnight to your hearing.

Currently got the 18" CF on order, thinking about switching to 12" CF (keeping stock cats either way).

Anyone heard both and can comment on the differences inside and outside?

If youre keeping stock cats, 12" ss or cf would be money
