Already answered but ours is 3.5" vs their 3.0", the mid pipes are different lengths, we have a flex section, our tips are adjustable, ect... C

Calling this a knock off is like saying HPF knocked off AMS with a different muffler. It's silly to assume it's a knock off based on a few similarities.

More than a few brands have created a single pipe exhaust

You'll have to pardon my young cameraman chuckling. Traction control was on so it was bogging down each time I hit the gas.

That actually sounds really good, thanks for taking the time to post it . This might be my next mod after I can get this suspension installed or wait for their louder version. This one is definitely nice and tame but sounds good at WOT. I assume the 2nd pass was WOT and traction didn't kick in, right?

I floored it right as I went by and trac was on before the boost even came up. It was at ~4000rpm if I remember right. There's just no way to wind the car out on my street, and in 1st/2nd gear my car just smokes the 275mm PSS's.

Good news: OS Giken diff shipped today. WOOT!

Would it be possible to install this exhaust as a DIY on ramps/jackstands?

I just installed some VRSF downpipes last weekend. They fit great with no rattle what so ever! Very impressed with the quality and fitment.

Are there any adjustments or equipment (torch) that would make an exhaust shop required for the install?

No equipment necessary and these are definitaly doable with jack stands although it's a bit harder to adjust/clock them correctly unless you're on a lift.

Do you still need to remove the "V-Brace / Chassis Brace" underneath the car to fit this exhaust?
If so, do you include the needed "spacers" to re-install the V-Brace?

Yes, and no. If you'd like to keep it you can source a few washers at any local hardware store.

Any plans to include some form of "spacers" and extended bolts in the near future as part of this exhaust package?

Probably not. I've ran our shop car at the track a few times before/after the removal of the x brace and I felt no difference in terms of structural rigidity.

Yes catless, no noticeable drone (but I don't drive that much, maybe 100 miles a week.)

Yes its fairly tame, I would not say it is all that much louder than a stock exhaust, it just sounds different from a stock exhaust, a bit more aggressive.

Great sounding exhaust but a bit tame for me but a great product at a great price....hard to beat this one at this price!
