Default Hmm... there is no warranty friendly downpipe is there.

I denied it but now I have finally realized that there are no downpipes for people who are concerned about emmisions and warranties is there? I guess because they all take off the cat thats just after the turbo. I'm surprised there aren't any that keep them though. Just curious, can you still pass emmisions with a racing downpipe?

I only wanted a downpipe for the Stage 2 Accessport but seems that is not for people concerned with a warranty so its Stage 1 for me. Is that even worth it?

I have a question though. Can I run a Stage 2 Cobb using only a Cat-Back system? Is there a power decrease if I do that? Thanks.

Accessport is not for people who are concerned with a warranty either.

I don't think a downpipe would cause any irreversable effect on warranty service. They do make downpipes that retain a cat, if you are worried about emissions

You shouldn't run Stage 2 with just a catback. That is why they say that you need a turboback exhaust, you can run it with the stock catback and an aftermarket downpipe though.

My APS downpipe has a high-flow cat and the setup easily passes emissions.

My dealer has no issues with my Bosal downpipe... infact my dealer has serviced my car several times and have commented on how great the sound is. At the time I had Bosal downpipe with txs rfl-ti catback. Unfortunately though, each dealer has different pollicies. Just my .02.

I had my tranny rebuilt twice, first time with Bosal DP, second time with Vishnu turboback. It depends on your dealer.

I have the Random Tech down and mid pipe. They both have cats in them. I haven't had any major warranty issues yet. I'll just have to wait and see I guess.

If you are concerned about emissions (not just warranty) there is actually no component in your exhaust which contains a cat that you can legally change until your car is > 5 years old or > 50,000 miles, and even then it must be replaced with an oem or EPA approved component.

So to answer your entire question, no.
