Another happy customer w/ JBA High-flow Cats

Took about 2 hours to install. Installation was easy and straight forward. So far no CEL after 10 miles drive. Definitely aggressive idle and louder than before. I couldn't hear the AFM but my hearing is already bad so I might not hear AFM at all. I'm happy with the new exhaust sound.

*UPDATED*

Before:
DT Shorties, DT Catback, AEM intake.


After:
JBA High-Flow Cats, DT Shorties, DT Catback, AEM intake.

They were one of the best mod I put on my car before I went with the JBA
1 7/8" long tubes and a tune.

Thanks. I think that's enough modifications for me to stay within the warranties tolerance.

1) JBA High-Flow Cats ($372 shipped) @ http://buyjba.com/catalog/product_in...roducts_id=814
2) DT shorties ($500 shipped) and 2.5" DT Catback ($350 shipped) @ SLC Performance Parts of Arizona 602-942-3718

Total = $1222

If you install them yourself, you can save a huge amount money from the labor cost. Installations are very straight forward and simple.

The Butt-Dyno says it increased in power, however, I will get a real Dyno sometime this week or next week to find the real power gains. I'm waiting for the humidity to calm down and let the midpipes break-in a bit before I do the Dyno test.

Good choice with the midpipes alone (Cheap price). You won't be dissapointed with the new aggressive muscle sound.

Negative, I don't have a before dyno test. I'm sure someone here can tell us the estimated horse power gain from the midpipes.

I've got a set for sale in the classifieds. Anyone local to DFW can come pic them up for $325. They were only on the car for 2 weeks.

Returned empty hands with two shops turned me down for a Dyno test until Friday. Stay tune for the Dyno report. I'm hoping somewhere at least 350 rwhp.

Just got done with the Dyno Test SAE: 317 rwhp & 360 rwtq

I'm not sure why horsepower stays about the same and while torque went up about 40. An expert told me a tune will solve the low HP issue. Anyone else can shed some light into this?

*Using 20% lost at the wheels: 317rwhp/0.8=396hp & 360rwtq/0.8=450tq

MODS:
-AEM Intake
-Doug Thorley Shorty Headers
-Doug Thorley Catback w/ x-pipe,
-JBA High-Flow Cats
-No-tune

INFO:
-25,500 miles
-93 Octane
-L99 Automatic 6
-Open hood w/ fan
-weather: 72 F degree, 29 in-Hg, 47% Humidity
-70% oil life
-35 psi cold tires

Seems like 315-320rwhp for L99 is right. Just curious after all the mods are done they are good for torque and not for horsepower (Unless tuned). Very interesting find.

Not a problem AC. I'm here to share usefull information for us all that are in the same warranty boat.
I'm curious to see a Dyno test on Solo high flow cats with shorty headers and no tuned.

sounds great man. big improvement over what you had originally even though it still sounded good hahaha. Good luck with it! I was amazed by the torque increase and not so much hp. interesting without a tune. Thanks for sharing, enjoy.
