    Corksport DP/PG Test Pipe/Mazdaspeed CBE installed

    Have had the cbe on for a few months and I think I was the first to realize the test pipe did not mate to the mazdaspeed exhaust. Ken and the gang did their best to fix it before there was the redesign with no luck. Back to the present the test pipe is fixed and I had them install the dp because I didn't have the time/patience to do it my self. The install didn't go as smoothed I we had hoped they had trouble with one bolt on the old down pipe but they stuck with it and did a excellent job. now for my impressions, must say it's a nice improvement. way more power then just the cbe exhaust and a nice gain over just the test pipe/cbe and nice sound, deeper and louder (with out being to loud or obnoxious in my opinion) will be at the Protege Garage meet the 29th for anyone local that wants to see/hear it and I will hopefully have Ken make a sound clip then to post.

    Will these mods affect the MAF if running a MS CAI and MS CBE? I have heard things where using the MS CAI, the MAF may not adjust correctly with a downpipe and test pipe? Is this true? I want to keep my MS CBE and CAI but was wondering if the Corksport DP and PG Test pipe wil lwork without issue (read that as no CEL's or MAF issues)?

    TIA

    Are you running a MS CAI/MS CBE and the CS pipe and PG pipe?

    you should not experience MAF sensor issues as a result of the aforementioned modifications

    Not to harp on the subject, but no CEL's either?

    exactly what I was gonna ask!

    I was planning on using the same mods...

    First maybe the ms catback, that way I can cut off the stock exhaust without voiding warranty, then maybe getting the cs dp and pg pipe and swapping out if i ever need warranty work.. seems like the perfect way to do it.

    I'd really like a sound clip/video clip any time.

    Thanks.

    some cars with catless downpipes get CELs, others do not. same thing with the catless header i have on my mazda5. the secondary sensor which reads emissions equipment functionality is finicky. the corksport downpipe comes with a CEL fix and for most cars it works great. the sensor's distance from the exhaust stream has to be about perfect to not throw a CEL. too far or too close to it seems to occasionally cause check engine lights. there are a couple other tricks up my sleeve which if need be can be tried to kill the CEL entirely.

    So there is no guarantee that these pipes won't throw a CEL?
