My experience: slightly messy install. Fit and finish could be better. Welds aren't the cleanest and although mine came packaged well, my pipe had scratches on it. Pieces of it even have alight dents like scrap metal. Overall, very cheap looking and feeling. Design could be a bit more effective too using available engine bay space.

I'm also getting a system too lean CEL no matter how snug I fit the piping. Since I don't notice any real performance improvement other than a louder diverter valve, I'm wishing I never wasted my money....
Not surprised.

So far I only like the AFE intake and not at $400+. **********s had them for $270 on Black Friday. That, or $200-225 used is all it's worth to me as I assume it to only be for sound.
