Question HELP!!! PICS of BPM GT Installed

I just had my bpm gt exaust installed

After 200 miles the CEL went on, the dealer pulled code420 which is catalyst efficency-meaning the cat isn't getting hot enough.

I got it cleared and we checked all fittings

I got a CEL right after I left the dealer for the second time.

I was looking for pics of what the twin dump looks like installed.

Pics of all angles if possible.

Anyone have any suggestions

Make sure your O2 sensor is inserted in the bung AFTER the cat in the midpipe. There are bungs on the downpipe and after the cat in the midpipe. You will get CEL low cat efficiecy code if you have it before the cat. Normally the O2 sensor senses a difference between the sensor before the turbo and after the cat in the downpipe. If you move the O2 sensor after the midpipe cat you will get a resonable difference in the readings and get no CEL. You will need to unhook the wire from it's twisties on the transmission housing and pull out the slack to make it reach. like this:

back of car is this way --->

I don't think that it is your downpipe unless you can see any gaps in the fittings.

Are they still selling systems with the wrong config? Damn, thats funny. Yup, thats what you need to do. Even with an up-pipe you still wont get a CEL if you do the fix.

I'm not sure which end you are talking about. where the downpipe meets the midpipe? If so here it is, notice the bung before the cat is not being used:


Here are all my pictures

Default Do you need new gaskets?

Just wondering if BPM supplies all new gaskets with their exhausts? I'm particularly wondering about the gasket between the downpipe and the turbo? If not, it would probably be a good idea to get one for the install.

Default Picture of Downpipe

Detailed photo avail if you e-mail me. Too large to post.

As mentioned - No CELs with my sensor installed after the cat. Yes, gaskets came with it, but not one between the downpipe and turbo as I recall. Installed it myself, and did have some fitment problems with the downpipe hitting the crossmember. Adjusted everything as much as possible, then shaved very little off the crossmember, sanded, and repainted. No problems since.
