What metal piece did they saw off? Jw I got mine coming in the mail and could use the tips for installing.

well they couldn't really explain it well and i didn't get to see it entirely, but because q300 is kinda square-ish the top of the box is hitting the chassis. i wish i took a picture, but i suggest taking it to a mechanic. I was gonna do it myself, but you're gonna need a lot of WD-40 and time.

Lol I know I could do it and I don't really want to pay someone so I could use that money for more parts. Hehe. But I have heard people using stiffer exhaust hangers to prevent rattle from it hitting the chassis as well. I was jw. Thanks

If it's hitting in the same place my Skunk2 CB was it's the rear heat shield where the exhaust has a bend curve right before the muffler. One of the corner is very close to the pipping so when the exhaust flexes it hits making the rattle noise. They probably cut off that corner.

Does anyone know the advertised or actual HP gain on this system?
If I remember correctly you should be gaining a few Hp, nothin big. What I'm curious about is if they're pretty much the same gain as all the others? Or are there better ones? I really like the sound of the q300 and look. From always using Skunk2 and HKS on my past cars, it'll definitely be a big change!

Get stronger mounts or its going to rattle. Bending the hangers, but still hear the rattle so I bought the skunk alpha header. Hopefully it stops and will be the last time at the shop.

I took mine back to shop they bent the hangers put stronger mounts. Now I hear it every once in while idling with ac on. It need stronger mounts though grab the end exahust try moving it up and down or use foot lift upward if hear it hit the top u need mounts that r stronger. I can barley move it and I still hear it every once in a while idling. Hopefully it's still need to be broken in.

Invidia q3000 Rattling issue solved with the skunk 2 alpha header I think it's caused by the restriction from the two cats but now it's solved. If any else has problems when idling with ac on get a alpha skunk header. Problem solved..

Just installed mine it rattled really bad when i first put it on the muffler was hitting a bracket i guess u can call it that supports the hanger i took off the muffler and grinded down the rolled lip on top and a little on the bracket put it back on no more rattle. But it was smoking so bad when i drove around way more than i thought it would but that stopped but i really love this exhaust sounds great
