Item Interest
I'm interested in adding a Challenge Street X Pipe to my Corsa exhaust. I want to keep my primary cats, so the Sport model is out. Anyone interested in selling one?

Great choice! I am running one with my Dinan muffler and LOVE it... Very noticeable difference and no pesky CEL lights, etc... They rarely come up used for sale and when they do, they are gone in less than one day. I have only seen 2 in the past year IIRC.

I actually tried one out with my Corsa. Yes, it was a lot of work changing my stock x pipe with my friend's Challenge Street, but I now know that I have to have it. I was amazed at how it changed the tone of the exhaust note. Did you buy yours new? If so, from where and for how much?

How do you not get a check engine light? I thought it had two 200cpi cats in the secondary cat location?

Sport will throw CEL, Street will not...

You can contact IND, that is where I got mine, or contact Challenge GTM directly... They are right in our neck of the woods also...

Good luck with all of your x pipe acquisitions...

The sensors are after the primaries.

I see. I was thinking he wanted the Sport X-Pipe.

I don't see the point of the Street pipe. An exhaust shop will cut out the secondary cats for $250. If you want them back in later, you can have them welded back for another $250; still WAY less than $1,050.

Anyone have any idea how much the Sport X-pipe runs for?

That Fabspeed has had too many complaints about fitment that it's scared me away.

fitment was good on the v1 fabspeed, there was just a little rub on the heat shield which was fixed later on v2. soon after that challenge came to market with their xpipe followed by mastermind.

is mastermind a product of eas?
