Yes. The difference is astounding. Not only is the sound something I'm in love with but the increased throttle response from all that airflow is amazing. I'd also like to point out something very profound. Previous to the install, 80mph on cruise control was 21-2200 RPM. After the install the 80mph cruise is 1900 rpm.

Sounds awesome man, did you order everything from the same vendor? I'm interested in upgrading my '13 LFX similar to this.

Sounds great man, I'm thinking about getting the HFC's to go with my JBA Axle-back. Anyone have any issues with the HFC's causing a raspy/ricey sound? Or any CEL's? Thanks!

The HFCs work like a dream. Solo HFCs have thrown no CEL since installation and 500miles

I would also like to add. Any of you interested in package deals. Speak with Apex Chase. I purchased the whole lot from them for a good price, good shipping time and great customer service.
