He doesn't have the defouler. And he's doing good w/ the high flow cat.
:yeahthat: The only problem that I have had is that the exhaust squeeks, It is the hanger. I reasearched around, and I guess a few people with the stock exhaust have the same problem. When you install it move the hanger around to see if it squeeks, mine does, but I have not had time to get under there to see how to fix it. It only squeeks under very light throttle at low rpm, and when starting out in first.

You dont need a defouler. When installing make sure to twist the wires while you twist the sensor. Could possibly pull one of the wires out.
