This product is overpriced for a bit of stainless with two flanges; I think I would have felt better about stumping up the cash had the gaskets/bolts been included. For some reason two bolts were included but of course you need four, and the two supplied didn't have washers, let alone spring washers. WHY ON EARTH ARE THE GASKETS NOT INCLUDED? And the courier doesn't deliver on weekends so I needed to take another day off work...
On the upside the product appears very professionally made, with high quality welds. It fitted straight in, at first I thought it wasn't the right length but it bolted up perfectly. The gaskets sealed up well, with no gas leakage. I have had no problem with the sound, mildy noisier than usual but certainly not obtrusive; it still sounds like a factory system even when I thrash it. Engine seems to deliver the power more evenly, but I am unsure if there is actually a power gain. I have no buzzes or rattles that some other people had mentioned, not sure what I did differently.
To recap, good product, slightly overpriced and ludicrous that it doesn't include the gaskets and bolts (plus shakeproof or spring washers) for the price. If it did then I would feel that the price was justified. As it didn't I am rating this as 3/5.
