Just installed a new DP from 1320 with a high flow cat and after a nice high pitched shriek from underneath the car, assuming turbo, I have nice puffs of white smoke coming out of my exhaust. Why does this seem to be a common occurrence with down pipes installs...

Not sure if the turbo was already on its way out (58k), DP install, or running the Unleashed tune or combination of the above. Unleashed tune is a bit harsh and noticed slight surge during shifts, though it has crazy power delivery but also heat. Time to replace the turbo. Best place to pick up a replacement?

Neither one of those mods should have caused that.

Note - Go to Torrie and ask him to ease up on the initial throttle response (he makes it too "on" "off" by default.) Or just ask him to reference and mirror the tune he put together for me (Matthew Dill). Power delivery becomes MUCH more linear.
