    Just some update and info on shipping.

    On shipping: I ordered mine November and got them early January I think.

    On fitting: I have AWD and as the wether started to warm up, I heard the rattle of pipes against the transmission bracket/housing. I went to a speed shop and they took them off, places a small indention into the pipe at the location. It was making contact and put them back on without having to try the “slide out towards the driver side” trick. Have had zero issues since. Just FYI for anyone with awd. I don't regret the purchase but it did take a bit of modifying to get a perfect fit.

    Mine is AWD as well. Do you have any photo's of the indention you had done?

    I don’t but they shop could tell where it was hitting based on just looking at the pipes. They took a torch and heated it then hit it with a ball peen hammer. It’s a pretty reputable speed shop so I trusted them.

    I had to ding mine as well and still the fit was poor and leaking at the catback connection. If you haven't bought yet, Ark sells these now for 30 or $40 more and they have an AWD specific set with better fit and mounting brackets in the right place. SSRs are great for RWD but a bit of a hack for AWDs.

    Edit: SSR just raised their prices so ARK is now $40 cheaper.

    Another great tidbit. I was close to ordering SSR. Not interested in a fit issue with my AWD, looks like Ark is the choice. Thx

    I'm checking with KHAR, if they have the ARK DP's I'll just switch to those if SSR doesn't get back to me

    It's all the same product now days, it's all about price and inventory.

    Pretty sure the UP is a catless(or high flow cat) primary & secondary DP combined. Pros=more power, quicker turbo spooling. Cons=CEL's & overboost issues without a Tune or EWG controls.

    Rob, how's the climate where you live. I am debating the EVC version where I live, we get 4 season's up here with pretty harsh winter's - lots of salt, calcium chloride and gravel, I am a little concerned of the electronics.

    It's a fair climate. We get all four seasons not bad winters at all . I am on the coast though. No where near as harsh as you. I am not that worried I do keep it garaged and it not my primary vehicle.

    Sounds awsome! Check out my posts for more details
    Without downpipe
    Valve closed- slight added. rumble slight drone highway speeds (the way it should have came stock)
    Valve open- sound louder drone on anyway

    With downpipes
    Valve closed- deeper than without nice rumble slight drone seems to be less at highway speeds but more at slow speeds.
    Valve open- very aggressive, exotic sound in my opinion. Very nice idle rumble and burbling when let up on gas.

    Search Kunstwerk YouTube posted many for G70
    I hope this helps I took the leap and purchased and love it.
