Hi Rico
I had a local body shop here do the installation. They mounted both the xpipe, the mufflers and front and rear sway bars. The car sounds better, looks better and handles better. I was worried that I could align the tips correctly. I predict you will really be happy with your Extremes. Hope to see pics when your done.

When looking at the lineup on your website I cant see the difference between some of them.

In both photos and description 14114 looks the same as 14962. Am I missing something?

The 14114 is a "Sport" which is the mid volume unit

The 14962 is the Xtreme which is the loudest volume unit

Ok so there is an error on your site. The 14114 is labeled as an extreme.

Sorry, I'm on vacation - on a boat fishing right now.

It's 3.5 vs 4.0 inch tips...

Currently free shipping is scheduled through the end of April.

What about the 14114 and 14962? I want to get one with the x-pipe included and it doesn't look like the 14132 is available with the x-pipe.

Also what do you guys think about Corsa vs Borla? I am looking at both right now and can't decide between the two.

Edit: Looks like you answered the first part of my question already.

Sent you a PM

Borla vs Corsa is Muscle car sound vs Tuned performance sound.

The 14114 is the cat back version of the 14132

BTW I have all 3 units instock as of right this moment

Chip

Did you have any trouble aligning them?

I did have trouble keeping them aligned. Finally the shop that installed them suggested tack welding which I agreed to. Haven't had a problem since.

Let me also say that after reading some of the horror stories concerning other dealers, I'm glad I ordered them through Chip. They were in stock and he took special care to get them to me before I was scheduled to be out of town.

Chip, just got done installing the Borla X pipe I mentioned earlier. Everything went great. Motorboating is gone, idle sound is smoother with just a quiet rumble. I can feel a ‘seat of the pants’ improvement in both engine smoothness and response.
Installation was a breeze. We spent more time jacking safely and ‘measure 10 times cut once’ than anything else. I don’t see why the equivalent Corsa product is more than $100 higher priced.
Thanks for quick delivery and advice/support!!!

Glad to hear it Charlie

Sometimes the final cost of a product has to do with more than material
and shipping cost.

R&D, Metal used, CAD cost, Labor, Volume, Amount of automated
machinery and Country of origin all have an affect on final costs...

Glad you are happy, it is a great mod

Thanks agian

Regards
Chip
