HI guys, I am looking at buying a depo racing fmic, DP, and intake to bring me to stage 3. I am wondering about members who run multiple depo racing parts how they have held up over time? Depo has the best pricing by far and I want to run them long term.

Thanks for any input

I have depo 3.5" fmic and Catless DP on my 2015.. No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend it, save the money you'd send elsewhere and put it toward a BT kit.

I just ordered the same. The parts will be good quality. I know there were small fitment and hardware issues initially, but it seems by reviews that all of those things have been ironed out.

I have the 3.5" fmic and catless downpipe. Had minor fitment issues with the downpipe but not bad enough to make the savings not worth it. Fmic was cake to install and performs as good if not better than any others from what I've seen and researched.

I just had to trim a weld on the FMIC and take about 3/8" off of the lower DP arms/bracket, other then that they fit well and look/perform like quality parts.

Just an FYI that the Depo catless DP and Roush CBE is a LOUD combo...I love it!

I'm running the beast and the intake and fitment has been fine. I'll be installing the DP soon. So far no issues with anything had to adjust the intake a little to clear the AC lines.

I have nearly 8k miles on the 3.5in FMIC and the HF DP on my '15 ST. They have held up well. I periodically check underneath the car on a lift and haven't seen anything out of the ordinary on both parts. In regards to fitment for both pieces, I did not have any issues when I installed them but obviously a few guys have. Although I had to buy two 2in long bolts, washers and nuts to secure the FMIC to the OEM brackets, it was an easy install.

I can't comment on roush but the Borla I have went like this.... I put on the Borla with stock down pipe.... Loud at wot. Then comes along a depo racing 100 cell down pipe and 5.5 inch intercooler. That at wide open throttle sounded amazing and was extremely loud with no drone still with crackles and pops and turbo whistle. Now I have the depo catless.... And yes it's only 100 cell but I tell you the difference is there. It is LOUD at wot and I mean it's loud... If anyone has a decibel meter I would love to see it lol. Anyway the turbo whistle is even louder and the crackles and pops are crazy

I run their Beast intercooler and it works like a charm, charge temp right at ambient and within a few degrees on a hot day.

I have the Roush CBE and Depot HF Cat. From the outset, the drone was rough, especially 65mph and above. I embarked on a 8hr+ trip and it was a pain. I almost regretted the combo but towards the end of the trip the TBE settled down and the drone was bearable. I love the whole setup though in comparison to others that I have heard.

I had the same experience as ST PA above, drone 75+ on the highway. I rarely take the highway though so it's not an issue for me. At partial throttle you can hear the turbo spooling quite well and at WOT it's like a rally car, crazy loud and deep. It's unique for sure but not for everyone.
