Arm catted downpipe

Anyone run the arms motorsports catted downpipe? If so how is fitment? They are going for 280ish and I understand you get what you pay for but 280 for a catted downpipe that bolts up perfect would be a steal. I'm between this and a cts turbo downpipe.

Arms motorsports. People say their intercooler is good for the price so I'm hoping the downpipe will be a good piece.

I have a review of it somewhere in the engine and tune section of the forum. For what i paid i cant complain but there was an issue i ran into with the pipe not being long enough to reach the catback i had on. But, could easily be fixed various different ways. I love how mine sounds and it has an EVER so slight smell to it out the exhaust, of course going from (2)800 cell cats to a 200 cell cat will do that. But its nothing like having a non cat.

Cts is straight junk. Go with the ARM. Their quality and fitment is top notch. That one guy your referring to on the forum had been through 3 exhausts and had modified his shit so it didnt fit. Buy an OEM gasket, and a better Vband clamp, and youll ve good to go.. ill be matching my arm fownpipe to stock catback. Ill post a vid after, im due for a walk around.

So you have no fitment issues with the arms connecting to a stock catback?

My CTS downpipe was probably the worst purchase I made for my car. Flimsy thin material, nothing lined up - I ran it for a month and couldn't stop thinking about it. Eventually the vibrations from the downpipe became too much for me to bear and I got rid of it for something else. I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere other than CTS. That's just my opinion though - lots swear by them so to each their own.
