Let it be known here and now. I have fully confirmed that the 845 motorsports veloster full down pipe fits the 14 koup.

The first hanger is a little close to the subframe but that can be trimmed if need be.

Make sure you use lots of pub blaster on the 3 turbo bolts. I need to replace a stud on one of them.

I'm just test fitting at the moment because I need to fix my turbo stud.

But it is confirmed as of right now.

Pictures or it never happened? Jk but that's great news and I'm sure many would love to see pictures. There's no issues with it hitting the sub frame while driving?

Nice to know now! Jim at pierce motorsports said the bend is a bit different when he looked at mine and wants to do it a tad different. I will let him know though that it does fit

bend might be alittle different but the turbo starts in the same spot as well as the exhaust just like the veloster

Sweet! I gutted my second cat yesterday and made a good difference so I am sure this will also. I am going to get mine from tork hopefully in the next few days.

Is this a catted dp or catless? The one I tried was a Solo with a cat I will call and ask the guy I borrowed it from. Each company no doubt will have a different method of assembly. I want to run a cat so I don't get a cel.
You shouldn't get a cel if you run the extender on it. I see a lot of velosters that run that and don't throw a cel.

if you look on 845's website, you can see the 2nd o2 sensor has an "extension" tube on it so it doesnt throw a cel when you run catless. mine is catless. and ive read some reviews on veloster forums where the way 845 has done this, it shouldnt throw a cel.

they do have a high flow cat variation. i dont know of the diameter. i understand what your saying.

Update. i took a break earlier and i decided during my break that i should just bite the bullet and remove my turbo to be able to drill out the broken stud easier.

So ive done that today also... alittle bit of a bitch. i had to take the waste gate actuator and the the cold side off the turbo to wiggle it out...

if you dont mind me asking how much did you pay shipped for the dp.. theres so many options. but you obviously went catless. did you go static or v band with a af bung?

375$ ? plus shipping. I think shipping was 38$

I got catless with static to match the stock exhaust. No extra bung.

Maybe in the future if I get a tune and disable the rear o2 I can use that bung for a wideband but I don't know how it'll work with the extension

Yeah I test fit it first. Then took it back off so I could start taking the turbo off so I can drill the stud out.

Hopefully I'll have it fired back up tomorrow evening.

Sounds good!

I saw on torks site they have them for 299 plus 99 for ceramic and another 99 for the hf cat. Not to bad. I might get the catted one ceramic coated
