AA's have been ordered. Picking up a floor jack, jack stands, torx kit, stubby drive socket, and swivel head drivers tomorow at Sears for the BlackFriday sale! Anything odd i need in order to install the pipes? Ive got a 220-pc toolset and a slew of random tools to sort through.

If we're gonna waste our time arguing over 5-10 HP, the power/weight is going to have a more significant impact. My car is a street/DD 335, not a racecar/track build

If it was a race build, I've spend the money & have a custom build straight pipe setup instead of buying "off the rack" parts.
Very true
