Thin material & tinny sounding, because of that

No fitment issues at with the ArM 3" CATLESS DP all on a 2012 coupe MT, to be specific.
Like i said, bought an OEM dp gasket, a nicer Vband clamp, and the 42dd 02 spacer. No issues, no CEL. Pulls like a beast. Nice and throaty sound.

I'm very interested in this downpipe too. Like to hear from more people who have it. I will also be using the stock cat back. Just making sure it fits. I'll probably take it to a shop to put it in. Just don't want to hear crap that it doesn't fit. And if I go stage 2 then I shouldn't get a CEL

I can't find much about this downpipe. Found only 1 sound clip. I think I'm going to go back to my first choice...unitronic.

Geez they want to charge you 300 for the Install!? I say ask around man because that seems like a lot just to bolt on a pipe, don't think it should even take more than an hour on a lift and I think average mechanic rate an hour is like 80$

That was the 3rd shop I called. They all want about the same price. And of course the closest shop is the most expensive. The shop is so busy the earliest they can do it is 4 weeks from now.

Damn man, that wait is crazy! And for that kind of money, look up install instructions for a downpipe, from what I've read it isn't very difficult. By all means if you have the money get em to do it and you don't have to worry about anything.

I've watched all the videos and write ups and yes it looks easy. But my luck I will break a stud on the turbo and I have no idea how to fix that.
