Installed GS downpipe, now white smoke

Well I put on the new GS v2 downpipe. I started it up and there was a lot of whitish smoke coming out the tailpipe. Is this normal for a new cat or something?

I only ran it for a minute. No CEL. I'll start it up again and see what happens.

Sounds normal. Just about any time you put any new metal in the exhaust, it'll burn off for a bit. Give it a few days and it should go away.

Did for me, at least.

Yup. False alert.

Everything is fine. Did some adaptation runs and it pulls like a raped ape. Like OMG. The acceleration in so much smoother. So much more refined. It's so much batter the with the stock dp. I think I even gained a couple of psi. Now peaking at 15 and settling at 14.... it was a bit warmer today so who knows.

Sounds about right

Glad you got it sorted.
