Enjoy! You'll love them.
Just one word of caution...Let the car (computer) "learn" the cats before trying to rev it up. It'll throw a CEL. I had to learn the hard way. Fortunetly I have a OBDII reader and was able to reset it. Haven't had a problem since.

If you don't mind, what catback system do you have, if any? And do you get much drone in 6th gear with these HF cats? I'm really leaning towards getting HF cats rather than LT headers. I've got Flowmaster AMT cat back....so I'm trying to find someone with a vid of this set up.

Thanks!

i've got the corsa catbacks. no drone, but the cylinders dropping out is more noticeable with a louder exhaust. corsa is only one of a few that won't cause a drone.

the afm just seems to kick in way too early after leavin a red light at a slow pace in heavy traffic and the car goes to 6th gear way too quickly. i don't mind it on the interstate, but most of my drivin is in 40-45 mph traffic and it just bugs me.
so on the 20th i'm goin down to tampa and havin the tranny tuned so it'll act like a normal automatic should...bye bye afm.

i'll post up on the results.

Thanks! I've heard Corsa has no drone, but like the deep sound of my Flowmasters. I may have to change my exhaust...again...

i'd think about puttin in the hi-flows first before you dump the catbacks. see if there is a drone with yours...ya never know.
one of the guys here didn't hear much of a drone, but it drove his old lady nuts...you might not think it's such a big deal.

Do the Solos bolt right in place between the manifolds and the Exhaust at the stock location?
I have the Corsa cat back as well...so I'm assuming it utilizes the stock wide exhaust clamp also,no

You will have to get them from Steve at SOLO Forum name goingsolo2.

I just had my set of these installed today. This has nothing to do with SOLO, but you need to be very careful when dealing with the O2 sensors. They are easily damaged.

I'm conflicted so give me some honest responses : )

did you plan on tuning prior to buying the HFC's? did AFM bother you a lot more post-install? how does the car sound when AFM is kicking on and off?

ultimately if I have to tune I'm just getting longtube headers but I'm wanting at least 10k miles on the engine before I hit that comfort level. would rather just hfc's and no tune : P

i wasn't planning a tune but tampa tuning offered a tranny tune for $125
and he's close enough to get the stock tune back in if i need it. i also checked with the local chevy service manager and he said they look the other way unless you blow out your rear end, tranny or drive shaft.
i just want to put the thing in drive and not have the afm botherin me. i'm not used to the engine changin sizes on me all by itself.
i got 400 hp and 8 cylinders and that's what i want anytime the car is runnin. if i was worryin about mileage, i'd get the volt.

Sorry it took so long to respond.

About the same time it takes after you put on the CAI or any other mod that doesn't require a tune.
Air moves faster through the cats and the rear O2 sensors are pulled back out of the pipe using extensions. This is the reason no tune is required.
If you want a time frame... a day or two.
