When you visit the site and purchase the old pipe. It clearly did not say you need a flex pipe for this to be trouble free. Same as his big turbo setup. It says nothing about needing an upgraded clutch or you are going to have issues. They will gladly take your money and sell you mod parts for you cars. Not everyone has all the knowledge to understand what a DP install needs. They are the experts and should write a few extra sentences in the write up is all.::facedesk::
C'mon. Soooo noob followed my instructions (although he won't admit it) and now he doesn't have problems, meanwhile Mac wants to insist that a redesigned downpipe implies fault... the fault is not the product, the fault is the consumer not understanding that poor modifications cause poor results. And also the product. And also me for repeating myself. Oh, and global warming. But mostly NOT HAVING A FLEX PIPE.
Talking quality. My DP is rusting away through the ceramic coat. It has never seen any road salt and 99.9% of the time properly run to full operating temp. When I showed Joe the pics. He said that was not rust.......
