High Flow Cats w/MRT 1.0, CAI, Ported TB...thoughts?

I'm STRONGLY considering snagging the high flow cats....

I have a CAI, and ported TB currently, MRT 1.0 is on its way now..

How would that setup sound, and would I see any HP increases?

Thanks!!

Solo claims 15 RWHP but I really couldn't tell. I think you may want to try the V1's for sound first as from what I read they are considerably loud but I would not know as I have the V2's myself. The HFC's will a little lower tone at idle and it will be a little louder cruising and more aggressive sounding at WOT.

Hey thanks...they sound great in your video. I just missed a set, so I would have to buy new....700 is pricey though. Still on the fence. lol

Thanks for the compliment. The clip doesn't do it justice at all, it sounds about 10 times better in person. I took the clip with an HD DSLR camera but it only has the built in mic for mono sound so it sounds a little weak. Yeah, the price is a tough pill to swallow. I even got them on the group buy and thought it was a little too much. I tried putting them in myself but the passenger side is so hard to get at so I had them installed and ended up spending what I saved on the discount.

I would again suggest to wait once you get the V1's installed to make sure you like the sound first and it isn't all to loud. The HFC's will add some noise to the system. I had mainly purchased the cats for the performance but the little bit it adds is so hard to tell and that is why I keep thinking I could have put the money into different wheels or some other things.
