OK looking to do this the coming week.

Have a question, I got HP tuner and in older LS stuff I did I just edited out the back O2 sensors.

Is that still something I can do on this car looking to go LSA in the future.

I am not gonna run any cats.

Nice! Is that the extension piece coming off the headers that is included? How much pipe would you say is there, about 6"?

It is a 3" to 2.5" reducer



This was a pic during mock I used some resonators before the x-pipe


and Magna flows out back

Ok so have been running around with this setup for a little over a week.

I was looking to keep the car quiet since this is the new daily that can have a baby in the back.

The car has a little more noise than stock but it is a nice deep rumble. In addition there is only a minor difference in sound between 4 and 8 cylinder mode so far I am really liking it.

So when you say the headers went on with now issues... you mean you had to make zero modification to them and zero "messaging" to the tubes to clear things?
I'm very interested in putting a set of these on my car.
Not always an easy sell to the wife when there isn't currently anything wrong with the exhaust that is on the car... but I know it "needs" long tubes.

Thanks for the post. Share some more pics, and a video so we can hear it!

they are a PROPER fit for our cars , only modification is connecting them up to the rest of the exhaust

Thanks!
The price on the JBA seems reasonable when compared to the Kooks...
Thanks again for the info.

Very reasonable. I think in the past (not sure about now), it was finding a place that ACTUALLY had them in stock, which was the issue.
