Although it's pretty obvious, you can't blame the DP just yet. You need to have the code pulled. I installed a header and got a TGV CEL.

Teiva-boy's right, the CEL could be something else. Go to Autozone or somewhere, have it pulled, and find out what it is.

I have the same downpipe and I decided to solder the connections together instead of using connecters and I have yet to receive a CEL.

By the way, how did everything fit?

What do you mean from the DP to the midpipe. THe Helix dp eliminates the midpipe altogether?

As fitment is concerned, do you have the first generation Helix that gruppe-s sold? I guess there was some type of fitment issue which was resolved more recently...don't recall if it was a bracket fitment or turbo flange fitment?

I have the first gen dp and my fitment was also terrible. I just enlarged the hole in the bracket on the dp nearest the turbo. And I ended up taking off the bracket (that is attached to the car) nearest to where the cat back meets up with the whole system.

Now the rearmost bracket on the dp (that should have been attached to that bracket that I took off the car) rubs a little on chassis when I go over bumps. Nothing a little grinding with a Dremel can't fix though.

If only I had a Dremel.
