    Test pipes to replace your main cats or pre-cats?

    20 minutes ? those pipes are to replace the cats right, it doesn't take 20 minutes... It took Ferrari 4 hours to replace my test pipes with cats to pass smog... Honestly I was thinking of putting the pipes back on but I don't see any difference power wise, I do sound wise but its only below 4krpm... What did make a huge difference at all levels were the pre cat delete..but again it takes 4 hours to install.

    You mean they charged you 4hrs (flat rate) to install, I'm sure it really didn't take them that long. I was talking about just replacing the main cats and it does take 20mins each side. I've done it twice already. It took me 2hours total to change out both pre-cats and main cats when I do my smog.

    well technically they charged the other dealer not me lol :) U are pretty handy ! Even the local shop here charged 3 hours for the precats. Got to make their money I guess:) Do you have to remove your bumper to put the pipes on, I am curious how you did it, I probably would not do it myself, id fear to mess things up lol
    I wanted to put the pipes on but so far I haven't: the car smells better, and honestly the performance gain isn't crazy. The pre-cats though, best purchase ever :) Now if I could get a Capristo stage 3 ... Even louder than a tubi they say and better quality it seems , not that tubis are bad products though !

    Interesting my test pipes do not have that shape they are as straight as it comes, not sure why and what is the difference ? how do you replace them , from a lift ? I would imagine 1hour total you don't have to remove the bumper so its pretty easy ?
