I am interested in getting your FP. I dont have the DP yet though, would it be possible to get them both at the same time?
I'm sure there's going to be that option and the way I'd go for sure. Should save a decent amount as a combo since there is one less flange, one less v-band-half, one less reducer and a few less welds you don't have to pay for.

Sure, it will be cheaper than buying them separately.

I just went to threads started by you and found it because your link won't work for me. Weird though because the link in my browser while on that page looks exactly like what you posted...

Sounds awesome man! I’ve got about 15k on the downpipe now and love it. Been waiting on this for a while.
How's the catless downpipe so far? Any issues?

Seems like there is definitely some interest in wanting a catted version offered. I for one am with that majority. I’d buy the catted version. But if they cannot do it for whatever reason I guess I’ll be stuck with catless, or stick with Prl catted downpipe. Both great brands.
Why do you want catted instead of catless? I'm debating which one to get

Mine has been great, I had a few times where the light came on but it usually went back off again soon after. Been without it for quite some time now though.

Just hit 30k yesterday and this things a champ! Just waiting on my clutch install before I kick things up a few notches :flame:

I've got to say, the reviews on this piece so far is very promising! In terms of CVT health, how would this piece go paired with the Ktuner 21psi tune? I know we haven't got the strongest of CVTs and I'm not feeling like buying a new one anytime soon.... Would the catted downpipe give a little less power/torque & therefore be safer? @RV6

Both versions should be safe with the CVT. The downpipe gains are not that drastic compared to the a tune. However the high flowing downpipe will help keep heat away from your engine allowing it to make pull after pull without getting heat soaked as quickly. With the stock downpipe we could only get 1 pull in before heat soaking the engine. After installing the downpipe we could do pull after and maintain the same numbers.

Very true. Tonight I was a little spirited with 3-4 high RPM highway pulls. The car has been sitting for 10 minutes with the hood up & at this rate could probably could my breakfast in 8 hours haha

So you guys have tested in the CVT with some kind of tune?
