Hey everyone new to the forum been looking at parts for myself and a friend of mine. I know I found a downpipe some where maybe puma speed but I'm curious as to advantages and disadvantages of catted over catless apart from price.
Well yes but I live in michigan so we don't really have any emissions tests so not of high importance, but would you get more torque to horsepower on a catted dp or on a catless? More lbs and less hp from a catted or is that backwards?
We don't have emissions testing in Alberta, but it's illegal to replace emissions related equipment in Canada, for street cars. A catless down pipe is louder, and will gain more horsepower and torque on a turbo engine, though tuning would be required to maximize the benefits of increasing exhaust flow. It would be hard to guess how much without dyno-testing.
Yes but is any one going to check it? Doesn't the Cobb AP have a shelf map that has a tune for a new DP. I know it's not the same car but Cobb has a shelf tune for the wrx with intake exhaust and DP just curious as to if the fiesta had a similar map or set up yet. Also there is a video of the fswerks cat back with a Cobb DP I wonder how long till that's out
Hmm should be interesting to see what they come up with. Thanks a lot for your information. Curious to see if anyone has a done a downpipe on the forum yet, I wanna see other peoples opinions on daily driving with them
I expect to order a 3" catback and catted downpipe from 2J Racing this week. With any luck I will have it all installed by the end of April. I plan to visit a tuner in Buffalo for a custom tune once I have all the upgrades done (Injen intake on the way too).
