Make sure the clamps are tight or buy t-bolts. Hair spray is a good lubricant to get the pipe in that will dry sticky to help hold it in place.

over the little 4" delete pipe, yes!

the solid section of the stock hot pipe is only 1.75" and the SXTH is 2.25". If you are going to bother climbing under the car, taking off the splash shield and cursing at the stock clamps like most people (i personally didn't find it that bad) you might as well spend the extra and get the full hotpipe IMO, especially if you are going to continue to modify anyway.

Going all the way is the plan! Just seeing if it's worth doing yet before tuning

If you do end up getting a BOV and buying a mac solenoid valve make sure you pull up on the pins making sure they are properly clipped in place (you will get a check engine light). And a tune from lap3 with plugs and a intercooler would make the biggest difference on the car.

I bought the delete pipe already but plan on getting the hot pipe upgrade in the future, does the upgrade still use the delete pipe in the kit?

If you buy the hot pipe you will not need the delete.

Well, I already bought the pipe, so I'm going to have it installed and when I get the hot pipe system, probably next year as I wanna get a catch can on this car next, I can just sell it off to someone
