Default Keeping restrictor pill installed with catless jpipe

2018 wrx stage 1+ atm on cobb ots map. Ordered a catless downpipe/jp not doing my research properly. Haven't installed still debating knowing cobbs stage 2 map requires catted due to overboosting. So what if I keep restrictor pill installed? It's a stretch. Thanks

...or you could just buy a catted j pipe instead of running the risk of blowing your engine

If you're going to run cobb OTS maps, do not experiment with catless

Can confirm. For some reason we hadn't removed my girlfriend's pill and she was barely hitting 16 psi. Afterwards, it shot up to 20 psi.

ordered? as in not received? can you cancel the order?

If your driving on the street (OTS tune? probably.) do us all a favor. get a cat.

No one wants to inhale your ****. My 2 cents.

Datalog boost/MAP and see what happens. Cobb offers a couple maps for slightly different WG levels to help with this. Additionally you can experiment with different orifice size restrictor pills to raise or lower boost levels. MIG jets and/or a drill work well. Just don't get greedy on your boost levels.

Yes. From my OWN experience so far just monitor boost levels and the other monitors available on the access port. Again knock on wood but my catless stage 2 setup hasn't shown anything out of the ordinary. Restrictor pill is out as well.
