Is that serious? One back fire? And it turns into a test pipe ? Can that Hurt the car if it does go out? I already have all the parts ? Not installed yet

No, he's entirely wrong. I ran a HFC for 20k miles with 0 problems and the HFC is in perfectly good shape. You will sacrifice at most 10whp from using a HFC and about 200RPMS of spool. That's all. Your car won't stink as much, you won't get black shit all over the back bumper (and your trunk) that requires bug and tar remover to get off either. Your license plate won't get covered in that soot either.

Nothing wrong with running a HFC. Nothing at all. People make big power on HFCs all the time.

Ty for this. I'm not looking to set any land speed records soon and I can't stand the smell and all the stuff that comes out.

So im getting tuned by Ams tomorrow and im pretty excited because i know ams does awsome stuff, but i cant help but be very worried that something will go wrong after the tune. Weather its 1 mouth or a year. I know its unheard of for a moter to blow from just basic bolt ons, but is there anything i should do to keep my motor in great shape and running good for as long as i can?

Well I would say that this was an extremely successful day. First off Ams is truly just amazing, there customer service is beyond expectational They mean business with a smile and are there to truly help. Remember you get what you pay for so taking the cheap way isn't always the best way
After hearing my car scream on the dyno, witch scared the living piss out of me for some reason the car had made 340 WHP at 25lbs of boost (with the mods listed originally except licp) witch was way above my expectations. I was looking at around 310-320 so I was very pleased.
I will try to get a picture up of the graph. I am very awful when it comes to uploading things so please bare with me :)

Lol. I know this is going to sound crazy. But even with my 1 hour drive back home. I never truly got on it. But it is just Awsome. At loss of words. Everything just seem like it came together perfectly and just works. Ams is the way to go and I have never been happier with my Evo <3

Congrats.... I don't know how EVO X owners can go on for more than 6 months without a tune. Forget the expensive bolt-ons, just get a tune at a minimum.
