Never had a problem since the day I had it, Just happened yesterday.
Has the Cat took a dump on me? and gone bad already?
I highly doubt it went bad. Reset the ECU by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 5 mins. Reconnect and let us know if it comes on again. So far the CEL issues people have reached out to us about have been, tune related and the other two of them were bad stock O2 sensors.

My order was early, wait was excruciating, didn't get the header until mid season, one supplied gasket was bad, but the header was very well made (don't know about the cat).

For a sleeper car the header is perfect - enough growl to satisfy, but low db. - to keep the po po away ! (unless you want it loud).
I have a Perrin overpipe, stock cat main pipe, Magnaflow catback. It's still no drone with the header, and very needed hp. Header and tune is mandatory on the twins.

Was it worth the wait ? If the cat survives yes.

Now after hearing UEL growl I am getting addicted and want more loud LOL !

It's definitely the factory front pipe that's keeping it quiet. I swapped mine out for the Berk Catted one and damn did it get louder

Yep, I'm thinking of of an uncatted front pipe for the track, (cheap), and swapping it on track days.

Did you get any drone with the Berk ?

I wouldn't call it drone. It's like a loud, deep moan under certain RPM's and loads, but it's not annoying. When off the throttle, it's pretty quiet.

Uncatted front pipe sounded nice from inside but it was extremely raspy/rattly from outside, as I discovered from having someone else drive my car while I listened, hence why I switched to the Berk catted

I get lots of compliments on how good my car sounds from my autocross friends. They say it sounds mean without being too loud. ANd the performance I get is so much better than stock..

Ft86 catted header/Invidia overpipe and resonated mid-pipe w/TRD catback.

A buddy will let me try his on my catback - will post when it happens.

He currently runs a Borla header and with the Q 300 , but all you hear is the header, and it is loud on the outside when accelerating, but sounds smooth and sexy from inside. You can not hear the q 300, only the header. A very unique tone I have never heard before.
Its possible the catted header will do the same only toned down, or it will sound like my Magnaflow catback - minor db increase only, but with an angry UEL boxer rumble (me wants more of that growl !).
