That is hot! I seem to have reached another milestone with the high flow cat, at about 350 miles it has quieted down quite a bit. It is only slightly louder than stock now. still has a deeper tone and sounds really really good when you push it. I am liking it more and more, or maybe I am just goin-n def.

so i just installed my high flow cat, and WOW. i agree its about 15% louder ONLY at wide open throttle. otherwise you can hardly hear it. is say i agree with the 15 flywheel hp but more importantly i feel an increase in torque which is very significant. power band feels more even distributed and i find 3rd gear has a lot more pull. all and all this is a MUST as far as im concerned. i will put up sound clips later on im just charging the battery for my digital camera unless it'd be up already.

2007 Mysterious Solstice gxp... solo center exhaust no muffler, solo high flow cat, intake, intercooler pipes, 5% tint, custom engine cover, custom fuse box cover, Hahn intercooler, norm's fenders, rear diffuser, and wester's hot tune.

Installed the street race exhaust and high flow cat for Go-N Def in my garage last night on 4 jack stands. from start to finish took two hours. Posting of step by step photos will come later. The first start was rediculously loud and each start after that quieted down. After a 25 mile ride, it was even better. No drone at 65 either.

You crack us up too!! Lots of Lol. Wow the clip sounds great. Outside the car is awesome, how is it inside the cabin? Jag's clip is the same sound that the Street Race and GXP-CAT will make. He has the GXP-RCD but with no muffler. That's sooo much smoother than our original cat. Thanks so much for putting it up!
Thanks for all the nice comments on the GM exhaust. Our hats are off to Ray that works with us for doing such an outstanding job on it. I'm not sure what was harder on him, building it or trying to understand their drawings.
We're all so glad the cat's are doing well for you guys. It's great to know that all of our struggling has "finally" produced a top quality cat we can be proud of!

We're very glad to say that 16 have been sold so far. Thanks for the great support. Depending on how quickly the sales keep coming in we may extend the pre-sale to 25 units.
