    Downpipe ??

    Well I contacted Cobb last night and was informed that the 2013 maps wont be available for a while, so I have time to think on what exactly I want to get parts wise.

    I am looking at a Invidia q300 and either Cobb or Invidia dp. Now if I go catless, is it worth it hp wise? I have no problem swapping in and out for smog. Also, will it backfire more than a catted dp? I really dont like the idea of shooting flames constantly alerting the fuzz all the time. Also if I go catless, would I need to purchase an ebcs? I plan on getting it protuned, but only after I am able to afford a ProcessWest tmic, pulley, and oil air separator, and bpv. Would running catless be a problem with an ots map in the meantime? Maybe an etune in the meantime?

    Sorry for so many questions.

    From what I've read if you go cat less you are almost guaranteed to get boost creep..I wish it weren't true tho...anyone know of a way to avoid this while still going catless?

    If you get an up pipe with an external waste gate and protuned you should have no issues

    Some cars creep, some cars don't. It's nowhere near "almost guaranteed"
