I'm glad that I got an AWE catted & resonated DP and don't have to worry about the CEL.

The clamp between the midpipe and catback got loose due to the midpipe being slightly smaller than the catback.

Pulled my vibrant spacer off and pulled the medium insert out and put the larger one in.
Still pulled a 49f3...
Going to try no spacer next... Probably should have started there.
If that doesn't do it I may try the 42DD spacer.
Knew I should have got the GESI...

I am happy with the downpipe except for the fact that I can not get rid of the CEL. I have the L-shaped spacer from Amazon and I tried a couple different configurations and still get the CEL.

I was getting downpipe rattle on cold starts and between 1-1.5k rmp as well similar to a couple people on here. Sent a video to Ian but never got a reply. It ended up being the midpipe and the clamp not tightening down on it. Inserted metalic shield between the midpipe and clamp to help with the void space. Rattle went away instantly.

Now the only issue is CEL

Should've gone for the GESI cat.

I have had the CEL pop on twice now since removing the spacer.
However I am getting a different code now.
P042000.

Hoping there is a balance point between the two codes, lol.
Not sure what I am going to try next... anyone want to buy a slightly use vibrant spacer, lol...

Edit: bought a 42DD spacer... will report back after it gets here.

What kind of metallic shield did you use? I have used heat wrap a couple of times and they work they're way out. Clamp can't definitely can't get any tighter. Always push exhaust forward when tightening as well.

EDIT: I screwed up the quote box

I pushed exhaust forward and used muffler sealant in the joint. No rattles.
