People who complain about hiss REALLY shouldn't be changing **** with their exhaust systems IMO, but everyone has their own tastes.

The setup isn't popular due to modifications needed and the fact that it's deafening.

INB4 FPenvy starts a circle-jerk about his exhaust being louder.

FI exhaust pretty much guarantees no CEL and that's not after clearing a code with a scanner.

Well guys I talked with Kevin at FI today and im going with the non-resonated test pipes since I do already have the Helmholtz resonators in back. Its just too bad they dont off them polished stainless anymore :/

I dont think the hiss or drone os going to bother me, and as far as I have been told, this setup should sound $$.

Kevin says I can change my mind before they actually start making them, but honestly I don't think they are going to sound bad at all, the rasp shouldn't be as bad as everyone says since I have the resonators in the catback. And even if it does rasp a little, that's fine. Because race car.

I thought the hiss from the test pipes was awesome the first time I heard it... different strokes for different folks I guess.
