      On the Westside it up Adam at Epic Automotive at 51st Ave just south of I-10

      It's really not that hard to do yourself, just have to spray the hell out of the nuts on the turbo with PB blaster so you don't break a stud.

      DP is installed and it feels good....the turbo is significantly louder and the car pulls a lot better up top, best of all the o2 spacers worked and no cel....now I can't wait to get it tuned, just can't decide between GIAC or UNI

      How many miles have you driven since install? Mine didn't come on until I had driven about 200 miles. It just depends on when the computer does it's next readiness check.

      I'm sorry, I don't understand. Why is this funny? Have they had downpipe install problems before?

      I just got my downpipe recently. Paired with software it makes a bigger difference than you'd think!
