At idle they sounded almost identical. At speed or WOT I can't say. Compared to stock it's night and day. NPP with headers sounds amazing. Good stock... Great with headers!

I must say I am very jealous of you guys and your headers, especially Ozzy with those BA Pfadt Headers. Those are a must buy for me when bonus time comes around!! Did you guys get tuned? If not have you thrown a CEL yet? I assume you both got high flow cats from Kooks and Pfadt respectively. Also I think its awesome that we are still the coolest and most active TP-Dub around!!!

I have a tune but its only until my tuner comes out to visit. I will be doing a real dyno tune then. As for CEL, the kooks threw one also.

Haven't been tuned yet, waiting on newb's tuner, and I'll try to do it then. Got the HFCs, I'd say they might even have a (very) little bit more ground clearance from the stock cats. And yes, I threw a CEL within five minutes of startup, lol

Thanks guys, I figured they would throw a CEL that's just too good to be true.

i've got the Rx one on mine, along with the OEM separator. some people say they're necessary, others don't think so if you've set the rings well during break-in...up to you, i figured it's relatively cheap insurance.
that being said, i wouldn't buy the Rx again. I'd buy the Elite can. Rx has severe problems shipping in a timely manner, i think i waited over two months for mine and i read recently he's still backlogged but taking orders. When i finally did get mine, it was the wrong color!

yeah, i'm sure i read in one of the threads about that they said it wouldn't require a tune, but i figured if they didn't that's just a bonus. wasn't counting on it.

Y, I read all the negative posts on the rx can in the vendors section, will order the elite from apex. Was it hard to remove the small hose to connect the catch car?

RX and factory here as well. The hose wasn't as hard as I expected. Mine came off pretty quick actually.

I don't recall anything about the can being hard to install. The instructions were pretty good

Big hands make it a bitch... the existing hard plastic hose has detent keys that have to be pressed and then you just slide it off. I have some pictures in my build thread. The entire install even with big hands takes about 20 minutes.

Now I remember....yeah, that was a pain. First mod to the car, and it was when I realized that just about every connector on these cars comes off differently! Lol

Me, and many others since...and it seems ol boy is just throwing up more excuses about why people are waiting and cant get in contact with him after he took their money. Not gonna recommend anyone going that route when they can get the Elite, even tho I haven't had a problem with my can (other than receiving the wrong color)

Have you tried a nubock block and brush? You can get them for $5 from a shoe store. It'll make the knob and wheel furry again.
