$210 was my shipped too price for the DP and CNT's 3-2.5 exhaust adapter (which I didn't need ) So I wanna guess around $190 ish. Just PM ERZ/CNT vendors on here

I installed it last weekend, fitment was great except I cut out a bit of the heat shield above the O2 sensor for piece of mind.

Stage 2 tune = win

That is exactly like an Invidia. Gasket, hardware, welds etc. Only better because of the wideband bung. Nice buy!

6 month / 7,500 checkup later.

Granted Oklahoma had a basically non-existent winter. They only brought the road crews out once, so my DP didn't have to deal with sand/salt. With that said, no issues so far. No 'pfff pfff pfff' leaks. Surface looks good to me.

Bell mouth 1


Bell mouth 2


O2 Port


Welds on the Bellmouth


Welds on the other end


Looking from the front of the car to the back, the "belly"

Thanks for this thread! Keep us updated as time wears on. I'm probably about 13,000 miles away from buying a catted version and so far I haven't seen one thing that would make me want to buy a more expensive brand.

I assume you had to alter the Turbo heat shield to make it work?

With any aftermarket DP you will either need to alter the OEM shield or buy an aftermarket one.

would it be a good idea instead of cutting hat shield to just wrap downpipe with heat wrap?

OP update:
Today @ 36k miles I blew the DP to mid-pipe gasket
Also lost the CNT name tag on the DP @ some point

Amazon Prime Shipped Vibrant 1458 gasket for $6.94
Amazon.com: Vibrant 1458 2-Bolt High Temperature Exhaust Gasket: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Vibrant 1458 2-Bolt High Temperature Exhaust Gasket: Automotive
and I should be back in bidness in a couple days.

It's quite embarrassing right now, I feel like a dam clapped out Civic with a fart canon
