Their website says MAPerformance fabrication is eligible for 10% and 5% coupon codes. Maybe because it's new, it's not set up properly to work with the discount codes yet. I'm sure Ian will clarify and/or correct it on Monday. Patience, grasshopper.

Ps. He's very responsive to emails and PMs during business hours. Maybe shoot him a quick note with the specifics of what you're looking to do (downpipe build, coupon code used, contact info, etc.).

No worries, it won't go on until I'm past the warranty. I might just wait until Black Friday since I should be close to it then. Thanks for the heads up.

I have a group buy priced, never installed MAPerformance DP with vibrant cat but no resonator that I am going to have to sell after reading this thread.

After reading on here, I can't have it throwing a CEL, and it sounds like everyone on here with spacers can't get them to work longterm.

In my state, we have to pass full OBD readiness every year, so I can't use a tune that suppresses it.

Sad panda. Stupid Tennessee.

I seem to not have any CELs, almost 1000 miles with the DP.

Regular non-GESI cat with resonator. I have the 42dd O2 spacer sitting in my room and the JB4 code clear through app on the ready, but I've used neither of them because I never got a CEL yet.

Only relevant mods that I have is a JB4 and a Clubsport S muffler

Seems like I'm one of the few though.

I am in Tennessee and not worried at all about passing marta next year.
Mine has thrown a code but it is very rare, 4 or 5 time now.
I can go over a week without seeing the code.
When I feel like it I will put the smaller spacer in and see if it helps.
You won't have a problem with TN marta if you have VCDS or OBD11 or JB4 to clear the code when/if it does pop up.

If it does pop a code and you don't have a way to clear it. hit me up... I will clear it for you.
I am in Nashville also...

Thanks for the offer, buddy!
But even if it does pop up, you can't just clear it and immediately pass. It has to go through all the readiness checks and be good to go, so at least three drive cycles. I've had modified cars in Williamson County for the past 20 years and been mostly lucky. The only car I struggled a little bit with was my mk6 GTI.

Probably going to save up for one that def won't code.

I guess I am under the impression that you can force the tests with VCDS or OBDeleven then go take marta.
Pretty sure I have looked at the readiness for the bank 1 sensor 2 in the engine module on my OBDeleven.

I could be wrong though, in that case it wasn't too bad to put the downpipe on.
I will put the stock one on if I have to next year.

I've been getting this rattling sound since I installed the downpipe. It only occurs for the first few minutes after I start my car and happens when I'm between 1k-2k rpm. It goes away after the car is warm. Anyone else have this issue?

No. Something has to be loose. I'm going to guess the two nuts below the turbo aren't tight.

Update: I switched out to the largest insert in the vibrant line and installed my JB4 ... no CEL through one tank of gas while tuning. Really dig the sound and the DSG "fart" with this DP and stock exhaust. Just like most of my DSM business, no regrets going with MAP!
