yeah it should work, you may just need an o2 dead plug to close it up.

Yes emissions are strict here . Some people know their way around it . As for me I did emissions February 2018. Then I did stage 2 with the catted downpipe. Trust me I could have been catless if it were less strict here. So now my decision is Resonator delete or Buy another downpipe which that will be catless.

Sad thing is . I'm with APR . I bought their downpipe as well as fully loaded ecu. They said there should be no CEL with appropriate files and o2 spacer. Yet I got it 5 times now ...it doesn't stay on ...on and off every other week . Frustrating . Should have went catless for all this .

The code read P0036 something with o2 sensor ? Anyone have more knowledge on that code?

Bummer on emissions. One thing to consider if I change states haha jk. Iíd invest in a catback unless you have one already. Avoid CTS products. Hit or miss fitment, mostly miss though lol. Iíd suggest trying to get your tune reflashed. Are you on the updated tune? 2.1 or 2 or 3? Canít remember what revision they are on now. Only CEL Iíve had lately is my gas cap. Fine some days and others not.

I got my rear subframe deadset kit in the mail, so soon I'll be raising the whole rear. I have one good floor jack and two jack stands. Basically my question is how the "lift points" work. There are the regular old jack points on the rocker panels like every other car, which is where I'll use the floor jack, but how am I supposed to use that lift point with the jack stands? There are plastic covers there, do they pop off or something? Owners manual says nothing about them.

Typically lift in the front and rear lifts. For example, jack driver front, stand driver rear.
Jack passenger front, stand passenger rear

Anyone have any experience with federal 595-SS tires? Local tuning shop is having a sale and they only $65 a tire, worth it?

Ahhhhhh... makes sense. I guess I'm not used to having a car with short enough ride height and suspension travel to where that's possible!

Yeah I already have an AWE catback which I will risk cutting the resonator off of it for a more beefier sound . I'm not quite sure about the stage 2 version I'm in . It frustrates me . The only way they get into detail is if I ask specifically about a certain thing . The way I constantly get the CEL I'm even hoping I'm in stage 2 file not stock or 91 file!.

I've never had a CEL before I turned stage 2. The CEL they said comes from maybe needing a new o2 sensor ? Why the hell do I need a new one all of a sudden after I get stage 2? Code name P0036. I even have a Spacer to prevent the CEL but it's still here smh.

I want a vagcom or something but don't want to spend that much right now . Do u have a obd2 that's reputable? Where did u get it ?

AWE is dope. Almost bought one instead of Borla. I have the APR obd2, itís $200 but is been fantastic and never been a problem for me! I can clear fault codes and track all sorts of things. Bought it right from my APR dealer. Your exhaust will sound legit with a catless downpipe.
