    We took another look at our 2016+ Civic 1.5T Downpipe and decided to develop a version 2. Don't worry, we kept the full 3" setup, and the performance has stayed the same! The revised downpipes feature 304 SS cast ends with standoffs incorporated in the casting to allow the factory heatshield to be installed. These cast ends are machined in house for proper mating surfaces, as well as drilled and tapped connections. As with all of our exhaust pieces, these are fully back-purged on site for weld integrity and optimal strength. Similar to our Version 1, there are no step downs inside the pipe to provide a maximum flow with a perfectly matched opening (to the turbine outlet) to 3.00" ID throughout the entirety of the downpipe. Choose between a catless (Race) or 300 CEL custom coated cat (Street). As per the version 1, there will not be a way to guarantee no CEL codes unless users turn it off via Hondata or KTuner.

    To follow suit with most PRL products no cutting, trimming or other modifications will need to be done. All kits will include our signature gaskets, stainless hardware, and components required for a seamless installation.

    *Be aware that the hardware has changed slightly from Version 1 to Version 2.

    Could you show us an installed picture. Does it have a 1" gap between the turbo heat shield and the upper downpipe heat shield like the 27Won dp?

    No CEL yet after 25 miles or so. I will let you know after how many miles it appears.

    Its only a matter of time before it throws a code. There is enough room in that area to install a CEL delete. Wether it be a straight out attachment or even the newer 90° pieces they have. Wether they work on these cars I do not know.

    If the opportunity presents itself definitely get a ktuner for this, best bang for the buck on our cars.

    an adjustable defouler will work depending on your driving style.
    It works great on the highway but not so much with short city driving

    Any catless downpipe will throw a CEL eventually. I tested it twice today and it came on around 30 miles again. My state requires yearly smog so I wanted to make sure a yearly install swap wasnt needed.
