    I picked up my test pipes from UPS on tuesday and got around to having them installed yesterday afternoon. there were NO fitment issues and everything bolted up right away.

    i have taken my FX to the same mechanic for my past few mods (pulley, brakes, now testpipes) they literally wanted to close up shop so they could all go for a test drive :cool:.

    first impressions when i left (i guess they were still breaking in) noticeably louder even with the windows down but nothing ricey. i couldn't hear any rasp at all when accelerating. when waiting at stop signs i could smell something out of the ordinary but it was only a few KM so far so everything was still probably sealing and the excess oil burning off and stuff. i could already feel a slight power difference even on local roads. then i got on the highway to get home...what a difference in the mid to top end. before i knew it i was 70 km/h over the speed limit and had to slow down :wub:. When cruising around at 100-120 km/h (60-75 mph) the drone from the exhaust is a little more, but with the music on low you cant hear it.

    BTW, when i did leave i didnt throw any codes, but when i was driving around at night my check engine light came on. when i was at the shop they said only once they got a check engine light on a G, but other than that theyve never got one. i will be heading back today to check it out and remove the code.

    Overall impressions i am impressed with the product. especially driving through neighbourhood communities i can instantly tell is louder (echos and stuff) but i like them. i cant imagine how much louder it will get with a nismo exhaust and possibly headers but i guess i will find out sooner or later ;)

    i will also update about the smell after the break in, butt dyno, check engine light, etc...

    Took it for a spin today to get groceries...this baby is LOUD. this is how i imagined it to be with the nismo exhaust, once i get that it will be a riot. the smell is still there but not as bad as before, i guess after putting on 150km most of the excess oil has burnt off. there is a DEFINITE power increase throughout most of the RPM. i have not felt any losses down low.

    CEL is still on, i called the shop and my mechanic said that the slot (O2 bung i believe) for the O2 sensor was a little short which is probably why it threw a code. either way i will be going back early next week to check the code/clear it. i will also get in contact with FI to ask them about this. the CEL is not something i really care about though.

    the sound is really beautiful, when i floor it from 5th to 3rd there is some rasp but it goes away quickly. i will definatly create a few sound clips either tonight or when i get back from my friends birthday roadtrip on sunday.

    Its loud, it smells, its fast...i love it

    You need spark plug non-foulers to clear the CEL for good.

    Wicked.

    Very throaty and deep! And sounds like what ever is in her throat would be coughed up very easy! ;) Lots of air moving through there.

    Sounds really good! Thanks for posting.

    that sounds pretty good, i think i might do that to my mod list this year, so all you installed were the test pipes ? how much did it run you with for parts and installation?

    Do it!!! Hahaha. It sounds too tame in the garage and I'm sure it sounds a lot more aggressive when under load. Have your friend get frost bite while you have some fun...after all what are friends for hahahaha!
