i installed one on a friends car back in 2014 - yes they don't come with shit and sometimes you get lucky the cast they are using isnt worn out and it actually fits ok without being warped or short from buildup. we used 2 lengths of self tapping screws per SCGW's recommendation :rolleyes::rolleyes:

today's pieces are a very long cry from VIS and Seibon that produced extreme quality carbon fiber parts. and somehow the price has gone up and people are OK with this.

Agreed... I forgot that I did need to sand a bunch of filler off the mounting pad to get it to sit properly on top of the OEM spoiler 😂 And I'm annoyed by the build quality every time I look at it too closely, but then again I knew I was ordering the cheap(er) one from SoCal rather than the $1000+ version from EPR, so eh... It still looks great if you don't get too close and it is noticeably functional in helping plant the rear at highway speed, so I don't regret the purchase. But man... I wish whoever was making them that day knew how to lay a seam 😬

Got some brake items in from R1 concepts, KDM tuners, and our friend Albert Hwang! Still waiting on a few goodies as well!

Ready to do this VT to NAV brake conversion to save some weight and be able to run a 15" wheel with a better tire!

Who's ready to see a VT run 11's in the 1/4 mile?

Will this be a test bed for the new OEM-location IC? I've been hoping to see some updates on that project! Sadly I can't get away with using your intake here (without reverting before inspection) but I could damn sure (and plan to) get away with running that IC when it's ready...

love those self tappers! you should get some black nail polish for the screw heads. i see snow, and i know they could possibly turn rust colored.

Installed X-force 2.5 inch catback today part E4-HY02-CBS, got it for my birthday during blackfriday sale on summit racing for $376.65 was $399.25 with taxes and shipped. With this replacing my muffler delete its ultra quiet, close to oem so I'm sure my neighbors will be much happier.

Tune is deff dulled out now, sounded so crazy and obnoxious with the muffler delete but car was just all around too loud felt like i was driving like a grannie so people would stop staring at me lmao. Now im on it everywhere gas mileage be damned lol, but maybe we revision the tune and give it some more noise. I'll try and get a sound clip when i get a moment. I did put on the resonated exhaust tips i was gonna use to try and tame the catback but i don't think they are whats making this so quiet.

Overall i am impressed with exhaust installed quick easy and fit perfect, came with bolts(kinda short) gaskets and a like 3/4" spacer that was not needed. I did put washers on the bolts as they were only slightly larger than the bolt holes. Exhuast feels like no restrictions and flows real nice, id recomend to anyone that wants cheap quiet straight through catback system.
