    Using KTuner or Hondata is the only way to 100% guarantee not having a CEL. They both have maps for if you are running a downpipe. You can run a downpipe without a tune and benefit from it, but you may throw a CEL.

    I can't wait to install it. Probably get around to it next week. I'll also be doing a frontpipe and turbo blanket. I already have my Ktuner just need to get the ECU unlocked.

    The front pipe opened up the car much more than I expected it to. Sounds like a good little setup you have going!

    The included defouler is specifically tuned to the catted or catless downpipe. It is unlikely a off the shelf one will work. Shoot us a message if you need another one.

    You know what? Now that you mention it, I'm positive you already sent me one. If I ever go flash-less, I'll add it on but for now, I'm good with just going direct into the DP with the sensor.

    Thanks Rich!

    Do we need an o2 extension with the catless RV6 DP?

    Any updates? I'm waiting to see dyno results to determine if it's worth spending the money on a catted downpipe. I'd really like to see dynos with a Hondata or ktuner tune so the torque limit isn't a factor.

    We did the dyno last week. Will upload it soon. The catted version made -6hp and -6tq compared to catless. Not a bad for not having to worry about smell.

    I have the Milltek unresonated exhaust and thought it sounded perfect. Had a shop install the ceramic coated RV6 catted downpipe and they said they didnt install one of the heatshield bolts because it would drill into the turbo blanket.
    Now the car is really loud and sounds like a fart can above 3k rpm. Is it because the heat shield isnt bolted down all the way or the downpipe? Will the raspiness go away after the downpipe breaks in? I read in the forums that the catted downpipe barely changes the sound.

    My Rv6 catless DP hardly changed the sound of both the OEM and an aftermarket exhaust. Not sure what you mean by "breaking in the downpipe" as it has no moving parts but I left off my turbo heat shield because the blanket covered it adequately. I did however reuse the down pipe heat shield no problem.

    The issue is the unresonated exhaust since it was tuned around a stock downpipe. Now that you increased flow and the exhaust can no longer dampen the rasp. The solution would be to add a resonator.
