Installed mine tonight. More pics can be found in my build thread.

The o2 wires are a bit tighter than stock and with the magnaflow downpipe I replaced out. The front o2 sensor is too tight to even clip the connector back in the bracket beside the rear connection.

*Let me be clear, I'm not displeased. I would suggest looking into the o2 bung locations though, especially the front bung. It would do much better a little further up the pipe.

This is the rear line stretching to reach:




This is a HORRIBLE picture of the front o2 connector dangling since it wont reach to snap back into bracket:



Bung placement. CJPP vs Magnaflow:




Lastly, this is the downstream o2. It gets very close to that heat shield. I recommend pushing down the heat shield for anyone who puts this in.

I asked Bill if he had the same issue when installing the one he did for the install video and he said the following...

They were not stretched at all when I installed one on the car in the video, the harness clips in and you can move the clip up the wire to gain additional room

As you can see the clips have been moved and even the connector for the front o2 sensor has been completely unclipped from the bracket to buy length.

Thank you for the response, but it's not in line with the real world results of my situation.

I don't understand what you mean with real world results, as we installed the same item you did. I asked Bill because he's the one that personally installed it and would of noticed this issue. I'm not saying you didn't have an issue just saying that we didn't run into this issue with our install. Obviously I'll keep my eye on things to see if this becomes a normal issue, but right now it's just one case and there isn't much I can do at this time that I haven't already done. I wish I had a better answer for you at this time.

Real world results mean I installed it ran into issues that I think could be easily remedied on your company's behalf on the manufacturing table. I'm trying to do you guys the favor here. I installed it, a very simple and easy piece to install. I took pictures and even a comparison picture to help you perfect a product that isn't far off from being such. I don't want this thread to turn in the wrong direction. My intentions are sincere and I intend to only be of help, if that means to stop responding and communicating my experiences and suggestions, then I'm sorry to hear that but I'll do so.

I'm not looking for you to do anything in my case, as previously stated - I am satisfied. Best of luck and thanks for your time.

Oh I have no problem with you posting your results, I'm glad you did because if more have the same issue then we can talk to our manufacture and work on the solution. I obviously read your comment wrong as I took it as my answer from Bill wasn't good enough. No worries man, like I said we'll see if anymore have this issue and go from there. We are glad you are happy with the product. Thank you again for your feedback.

How long will the sale be going on. I really need to get one of these, but won't get paid until the middle of next month.

Also, will the catted dp throw a CEL?

I really hope you guys can keep the sale going until the end of next month. I'll definitely be on board for the catted pipe :)

I installed mine tonight and I agree with these two statements. Forget about clipping the front o2 connector back to the original bracket. I just left it hanging. I also had to push the heat shield down a bit to clear room for the other o2. Other than that it went on great. Highly recommended!

Thank you for reporting back with your experience! I definitely think if the o2 locations are tweaked just ever so, it would be perfect.

Damn it. I was hopping that was a one off problem. :(

It's not a huge problem by any means. For me, the greatest headaches had nothing to do with the CJPP downpipe. The V-Band was a PITA to get off - Crow bar and hammer. The other was my front o2 sensor was almost welded into the stock downpipe bung and almost couldn't remove it. Had to whip out the impact wrench and go back and forth until it finally spun off - double PITA. Luckily there was enough thread to attach it to the new downpipe.

No chance of the o2 sensor wire touching the downpipe at all?
