The packaging itself was extraordinary. The high-value items were well protected. Just consider packaging the small hardware a different way. The welds look great too !!
Excellent customer service !! Steve is already taking care of everything.
Talked to this guy 8:30 PM ! NICE !

Wow what a morning ! Bob from Solo called today. He's working on the situation with Steve. He says the o2 sensor is NOT required for installing the Mach with Res Kit, only for the High-Flow Cat . So there's some confusion there with customers on exactly what is included on the Mach with Res kit.

We discussed my experience that the extra hanger assembly is putting holes in the bag and the parts falling out the carry handles of the box. And my ( still ) missing nuts ( don't laugh) and they are moving forward with that because the broken bag issues are just coming to their attention. We also discussed the idea of including a packing list either with the box or on line so the customer can inspect tally the order when it arrives.

As long as I do not get 02 errors when I install this without the extender I will be happy.

Hell of a crew over there.

installed

Installed last night.

On Teardown Had to drill out one stud off my cat because it snapped. Which was fine with me as long as the old exhaust was on it's way off. The other stud's nut surrendered without too much trouble. O2 sensor put up a hell of a fight until I realized the connector to it is right there on the frame. Disconnected it and pulled the exhaust out with the sensor still connected to the exhaust and then removed the sensor from there. Much easier than fighting it under the car, and I would suggest it. Then it was back under the car and drill out the bad stud and replace with a bolt of my own.

Install was smooth. 3 hours from pulling into my garage to road testing. Not bad since I had that grinding and drilling to clear the broken stud out on my cat converter.

Test Run
Product as described ! Nice throaty sound!! Doesn't scream "look at me" which is good. It's a sky, I don't have to. Deep low heavy sound with no crackle-back. Nice idle tone and aggressive acceleration note. At highway cruise speeds you know it's there, but not teeth rattling. No error codes.

Will see if any HP or MPG gains, however definitely the sounds much better and so far the Sky really seems to like it. Plus the duals on the 2.4 definitely look bad4ss !

Thumbs up to this quality product and the Solo support team !

Gains?

Hi everyone,

This stuff looks great but are there any dyno numbers? What types of gains in performance have been achieved?

I am very interested to know as I will be purchasing a lot of goodies as soon as I get back from the sandbox in a few months.
