Solo L99 cat's, my views

My car is basically stock, CF&D auto shifter, Pfadt springs, CF&d fresh air scoops and now the Solo high flow cats. There is a big improvement in sound, more of a growl. Everyone familiar with my car asks what I did right off because of the sound. Definately not loud in the cabin but sounds much better. More inportantly the performance. There is a definate increase in performance. My car always lights em up out of the hole but now it's been bouncing of the rev limiter before my second gear shift, no problem just got me by surprise a few times as I am pretty good at shifting consistantly. All in all I would recomend this upgrade to anyone.

Who makes the Solo Cats? Is everything else on the exhaust stock?

Solo makes them. I also have them on mine (L99) and love it. I have stock manifolds and stock cat-back exhaust.

Same thing other than the cats everything else in the exhaust is stock and it may stay that way, we'll see.

do you have to get a tune to avoid CEL's with HFC's?

My understanding as that using the Solo's there are no code issues. I personally have not had any problems. They have been on a couple of days, if any issues develope I will post.

I love my Solo cats and mach xl exhaust. Sounds great, no CEL and the added performance is awsome (with no tune).
