    Do you recommend the straight or angled ones? I see you both say angled but wanted to make sure. I have SW catted pipes

    Gearhead one is only one i know of that fits fine in stock location. There are multiple water to air intercoolers that fit great when the air to air intercooler is removed and the front radiator is moved back but there is alot of custom work and custom piping that needs done. Currently thats what im working on with my front bumper off as i dont daily drive the car, is a Mishimoto ford 6.7l water to air intercooler.

    Ordered wheels from them and had a horrible experience. Was lied to numerous times. Did not get a refund until I reminded them I recorded all phone calls and got my CC company involved.

    Carid sold me lug nuts that were listed to fit my car, but didn’t. Then told me their website had them listed wrong but didn’t want to take them back because the package was opened and I tried to install them. Needless to say, I won’t buy from them again.

    OBX used to offer downpipes at one point for the SHO, but IDK if you would pass emissions with them.

    I had a set of PPE Downpipes (Paul Prentiss Engineering - Phoenix) on my Ford Flex TT from 2011 thru 2017 when I sold it. They did not set codes for the first 30K+ miles and finally coded to which I had code turned off. They definitely increased performance as I was the first Flex to get into the 12's with a 12.92 at 107 mph. I still have them but can't access till May as they are at our Iowa lake home. Will sell cheap at that time. As for PTU overheating, I had to change mine out at 95K due to a whine, though it was working fine. Dealer said if it went, the tranny goes too. so paid $1,700. for a replacement. They also said they usually need replacing much sooner than 95K, so not sure that pipes really affect it. Sold Flex at 114K and 7 yrs. Only warranty work was squeaky dash. Best, over-achieving vehicle I have ever owned.

    I also have other parts including a set of hot pipes ( aluminum) with silicone couplers and HD clamps. Have several Methanol pumps, 1 never used and braided lines and more - all from Devil's Own. Car was tuned (flashed) over 100 times by Torrie McPhail. Current SUV is a leased Explorer so I couldn't mod!

    High flow catalytic converters (like those found on the downpipes you linked) flow very well. If size-matched properly, you would see a flow difference in the single-digit percentages compared to non-cat applications of the same pipe. With high flow catalytic converters, you will not have CEL codes, you will not need an angled secondary O2 (which causes the 2nd O2 to become essentially dead so you're ECU will no longer alter fuel maps like it should when it sees specific parameters), you would not smell exhaust fumes, your car won't be as loud and obnoxious and (i know none of you are Cpt planet BUT) you will not be putting NoX into the air/community around you. Oh and if you live in states like California, Maine, New York you won't have to swap to stock during an inspection (or worse, pay under the table for a false report)..... Or you can run no cats, deal with all those issues and get maybe 5-8% better exhaust flow.

    Don't get me wrong here, the stock cats are very restrictive. But do not confuse stock cats for high flow cats.

    Ive owned both with highflow cats and no cats. Dont know about the performance difference but no cats has a honda fart can zingy sound and high flow cats has more of a stock sound but alittle louder. Had them both with and without catbacks installed and all the catbacks sound the same compared to each other.
