Just installed my Injen today, and WOW. It sounds soooo much better than it did on those videos. Its a bit loud but ill live. And the damn box didn't bring instructions like it was suppose to so i had to do some common sense work, but being my first mod for my first car i coudn't be happier ( unless it gave me HPx999999). Quick question though, theres just a little bit of a smell coming from the exhaust sometimes. Is it becuase its knew, or do i need to tighten the bolts more?

Edit: It came with a metal piece that I assumed went between the too pipes that i had to connect. I put the flatter piece facing the back of my car, did i guess right?
Oh and im gona get install pics and two clips up when i get a chance. Ill get pics up soon and if someone knows where i can upload videos ill put up the two clips i took.

I wouldn't worry about the smell, but then again, mine came used, so I didn't experience that. Oh yeah, and I thought it was loud at first too in relation to stock, but now it sounds great to me! Congrats.

It looks to me like he just used the stock jack. If you're asking for this exhaust install though, I did mine with the car on the ground, and it was perfectly fine.

Yea i used the jack to up the right side of the car. And, in real life it sounds much deeper. I actually used my digital camera to take the clip.

Not exactly sure about the smell but when my buddy installed Comptech exhausts on his TL he wiped the exhaust with gasoline and let the exhaust idle for a few minutes.

BTW, the exhaust sounds awesome! Thanks for putting up the clips.

Yea the smell is gone, i guess it was just becuase it was new. Oh and no prob. about the clips. I had to be careful going over specific speed bumbs becuase i just about scratched the dade piping under the car! But im lovin this exhaust!!

Ive riddin over tons of speedbumbs at pretty decent speeds already and havnt scraped. However, there is a certain neighborhood that has the most horrendous F***ing speedbumps of life and my passengers in the back seat ( i had 3 ) said they felt a scrape when I went over the bump to fast. But i was back under my car again today, and i didn't see any scratches. So nope, no scraping issues.
