Aside from the huge PITA this part was to install, it seems to be running fine. Anyone planning to buy this needs to allow ample time to install as the studs connecting the downpipe to the turbo are the hardest thing I've dealt with on this car. Also the way the piece that is welded onto the pipe that hooks into the hangar is welded in a bad spot. It made it difficult to bolt up to the midpipe.

Other than those two things, it's a solid piece. After I've had some time to drive the car, I'll come back here and leave any other thoughts.

Sorry to hear about the hassle with the installation. Glad to hear you were able to get it installed properly. I will pass this info onto CP-E as well.

Thank you again for your business with us Luigi!
