Love it, the fit and quality of it was excellent. No issues at all with the install of it. It is certainly louder than stock, but not too bad. Coupled with the BB exhaust it doesn't drone and when I drive others around I'm still able to have a conversation in the car and it doesn't smell like catless. Did catless in my last car and I won't do that again, starts to cut back on overall practicality of the car for me.

With a proper tune you'll get some notable gains. I'm pretty happy with it all around, although it has a cat, it will throw a CEL. If it is in your budget you might want to try one of the DPs with a GESI cat or something that guarantees no CEL.

BBK looks so good, how much better is the upgraded stopping power over stock?

Thanks, it is a night and day difference. The brakes have a better bite and slow the car much better, they also do not heat up and get spongy like the stock brakes. Don't get me wrong the PP brakes are more than adequate for normal driving but you start to feel their limits at the track. I'm very pleased with the upgrade and would recommend it to anyone that goes to a track or has the stock non-PP brakes.
