Default Stillen CBE vs Fast Intentions CBE?????

I have the Stillen CBE and I must admit that the Fast Intentions CBE sounds pretty good on the YouTube video....Is anyone out there thinking of changing from Stillen to Fast Intentions? Has anyone found the Fast Intentions to be any less raspy? Louder? Deeper? Quieter (18" resonator)? Any thoughts or opinions at all? Love to hear from people who have heard each in person....
John

Yes would like to hear peoples thoughts on the Stillen CBE, as myself and the guys in Aus are trying to work this out for our group buy to have shipped over.

How is the Stillen CBE unit:
- When cruising and WOT
- Is it loud?, does it have any Rasp or Drone?
- What size resonators?
- Whats the diff with above with the HFC?

Thanks

I had my Stillen HFC and CBE installed yesterday, and the sound is great! Nice low, deep sound when you start the engine and under light acceleration, little raspy under heavy acceleration - you gotta like that (check the Stillen exhaust video on their website), and quiet on the highway (over 90 MPH you will start to hear some exhaust sounds). I have not noticed any drone yet. Not sure what size the resonators are. I believe they are 12". I had the HFCs and CBE installed all at once, so I can't tell you what the difference is without the HFCs.

Personally, I would go with the F.I.

The options and quality of the exhaust are excellent and it provides awesome gains.

I have a Pearl White and getting the carbon fiber mufflers. I'm number 7 on the order list, hopefully they can ship it next week. Tony said they have shipped 3 already and installed one, so if all goes well I should have mine on the weekend of the 15th-16th.

I will def get pictures and video. I'm thinking about even getting a before and after dyno done, depending on how much that would run me in cost!

LOL. Yes the HFC and CBE really made a difference! Thanks for the catch. I was barely aware when I wrote the comment.
