Thanks Nick, I will get the fuel trim data logs tonight.

Though Swedishassassin saw the same issue issue two months ago, failed in CA with high NO, on his Stage 4 SW: https://saablink.net/forum/showthread.php?t=26719

We experienced so many other cat failures I had to make and loan out gauges.. Who is going to buy a downpipe that was $200 or $300 more than existing. Or do I just put a $50 cat in it and expect it to only last 1 year.
Just curious, what brand CAT is on the GS DP....looks to be a Dynatech PowerCat at first glance
