3. Studs supplied with kit were about a quarter inch too long and got in the way of re-installing downpipe.

Sealed up with no leaks BUT I have done countless uppipes and this was by far the worst experience I have had with any up pipe install yet

In simple terms, stay away.

Btw shouldn't this thread be in the product review section?

Thank you for saying it all for me ^

As for my own review, i'll be doing the CNT catted DP for 5EAT's.

To keep this short and sweet, I loved mine since the day I got it. The finish on it was great, welds looked perfect, flange was thick, CNT tag on the top was also nice. When it came to fitting it, it fit just as good as it looked. We put this DP and my Stromung exhaust on the same day, and they both fit equally as OEM fitting. We had no trouble getting the DP to fit and i've been happy with it ever since!
