I notice there is also a lot of people that say the race exhaust is ricey sounding It's hard to tell from a video but on their website the only difference I hear between the race and the stealth is the race is a bit louder is that really the only difference?
Firstly, search is your friend. You don't need anything more than some wrenches, maybe a saw (for the stock exhaust) or an airgun to make it easier.
I wouldn't say the FSWERKS Race kit is ricey at all. I'm sure most who say it haven't ever heard it in person. Bear in mind most videos on youtube use not-very-good recording equipment to capture some pretty loud sounds. I have the Race catback, and did a couple of videos of it.
There's been a bunch of threads about this subject too.
