I like the exhaust, i just never liked the way any exhaust comes out at an angle...i dunno...I know its a big brand and a full cat would do wonders, but it just looks from a glance that its a fart can from Auto Zone welded on to where the muffler should be...

it doesnothing but sound. I'm partial to the brand. big name, good quailty. not very popular on our cars for the reason you stated. Im not a ricer type of guy. i doubt my exterior will change, unless its an RS conversion.

I know its HKS and all, but it looks like a pooper shooter is on the back of your car...sides, its an SVT, u wasted 400$ when ur stock cat-back is already mandrel bent with nice good SS tip on it...IMO, bad choice to replace the SVT cat-back

there are sound clips. look for thread concerning "Pics of my car SIlverstreak" there are 2 clips there.

Bad choice for replacing? the stock exhaust doesnt sound too good w/ ORP. its all matter of opinion budy. and Bump for no one else posting pics of their HKS system..i know you guys are out there.

It really pisses me off that the HKS does nothing for power - I'm rapidly becoming enamoured with that exhaust, but I just can't see shelling out the bucks... It really does look & sound sweet!

I've read that the HKS adds 4-5 hp over the stock SVT. No easy feat. The SVT system is very good considering the sound levels and being 2.25 in.

From all I've heard, I'd have to see several convincing dyno charts w/ full explanation before I'd believe this - maybe it's a 4-5 HP gain between 2200 and 2434 RPMs...

It's actually not too bad. I've only really hit about twice and they were on extreme slopes. Once I change up the wheels, I'm going to probably go with Tein H-Tech springs with AGX shocks and struts

never heard them being called poop shooters, I always call them grape fruit launchers.

Well, as I understand it, that style originated w/ Japanese N-1 - so I suppose you could say it "belongs" on Japanese cars, but by that reasoning, Foci shoud be sporting Cherry Bombs and Flow-masters.

Too bad Flowmaster and Magnaflows sound like shit! Just a personal opinion.

^HKS is for "sport compacts". if it should be just on Jap. cars, then what about all these Tail wastegates, greddy bov's, turboxs turbo timers and such? last time i checked, those were jap companies. sayin g all that, isnt most of the suspension aprts and intakes made in different countries? I.E, KW suspensions (German), Tein (Japan) Eibach (IDK) KYB(Not sure) if those belong on cars from their countries, we should just stick with ford racing.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I always heard of them called fart cannons. but this doesnt have the massive tip as a cheap "fart cannon" exhaust. bump for all you nay sayers!

LONG LIVE THE HKS!!!! I love the sound, angle it comes out at, the quality, and everything about it.
