I had to get rid of the Berk HFC. It was horrendous for cabin noise- the drone was aweful.

Invidia Q300, Berk HFC paired with OEM K20Z3 shorty header, onto a pretty much stock K24A2.

Looks good!

Is this the same Magnaflow 59928 2.75" HFC?

Notice any difference with the exhaust smell now?

Magnaflow 59958 2.75 inch.

I haven't notice a difference in the smell because I had oil leaking onto my exhaust so I was just smelling that. I recently replaced the spool valve and it stopped the leak and now I don't smell anything.

That's the first time I heard of that. Are you talking about the test pipe? I'm saving up for the catted test pipe so I can bolt it on my Comptech header. And when ever I need to smog it, I just install my stock cat back on. Best of both worlds. I'm to old and tired to install a long race header ever other year. This is the best compromise. It's isn't as "cheap" as buying a used Skunk2 Alpha header, but I pay for the convenience of ease of swapping out the lower pipe.

I was thinking about making the hfc bolt on and off, but it is not restrictive at all so I had it welded.
