I use to use this pipe on both my RRR's. The sound is amazing especially on a 5P TZ and performance not bad at all. However, I would beg to differ about its durability.
I went through about 3 pipes in the space of about 2 months. These resulted from a number of bumps. (Not major crash at all)
This could be a bump from another car or grazing a side wall. I brought it to the attention of Vantage Racing (Mike Chang) and they did say they were looking into an "add-on" item to add reinforcement. But to date, I have not heard of anything.
Since then, I have switched to the Skyline VR12+ pipe and have been very happy. Very strong pipe with amazing power.
Please note this is just my personal experience and would recommend you test the CF pipe yourself.
