I almost did but didn't want to have to deal with welding mounts for it even though I own a welder. The kit CRX sells is sweet. But then so is the vrsf 7", and it requires a lot less cutting. VRSF is also selling their downpipes for 319 right now!

I can't wait to get a baseline tomorrow so I can throw everything on the car. I'm hoping for 400whp with just tune, dp, and fmic. That might be a little greedy though...
Those mods aren't enough for 400whp I believe. I have JB4, intake, DP, AMS FMIC and I don't "think" i'm getting that much. I'd say around 350-370whp is more realistic...maybe even less lol. Good luck.
