Default Stromung Downpipe w/ Cat

I have had this downpipe on for two days now and the more I drive it the more I like it. I can really feel the difference. Throttle response is much nicer, and my gas mileage has gone up (added bonus!). You can really tell the car is breething much better. I put the Stromung muffler on about 6 months ago. These two pieces make a very nice and inexpensive "turboback" at about $750 for both pipes. The stock midpipes (with the 3rd cat) could always be changed later.

Next mod: 3rd Cat elimintor pipe and Cobb AccessECU Stage 2 should be on by Friday. I'll post another review. Anyone have the stage 2?

you know that Cobb Stage-2 requires a downpipe, right...?

Anyway, I got the 2.5" dp with cat too and have problems with it. The flange is bent and wouldn't align well. I have to double up the gasket to force it to fit... I took my car for 30k service last week and they did a smoke (not a misspell) check on my exhaust system and noticed it's leaking... I'm going to call Stromung today and see if we can work on a solution. It's been a few months since my original purchase and now I'm kinda stuck in a bad situation. I'll keep you guys posted.
