I also believe in the buying U.S. but companies can have parts manufactured in other countries and just do a small percentage of work in the United States, and not have to say it was made outside of the U.S. "Many due this"

You cannot be totally sure what is REALLY built in the United States.

No sh*t right? The pipe used by Solo and JBA is probably made in China.

The way I look at it is we buy things every day that are made out of the country so why would car parts matter.

Big three builds in Mexico and lots of the parts on new American cars are made down there also. This keeps the price of a new car at $35-40K instead of 45-50K.

Thanks for info all.

I'm going to put the car up on the lift tommorow and double check that all the t's are crossed and i's dotted.

I just got off the phone with JBA and they were very helpful and seemed committed to helping me. They agreed that it is possible that I have a set of defective midpipes and that those particular units might not be catalyzing as well as they should. They recommended that I clear the codes (which I did), and do a full battery disconnect/fuse pull (which I did NOT do at time of install) and give it a few weeks. If it comes on again they said they would agree to look at the cats and do an exchange. He also mentioned that he thought anti-seize could possibly affect the grounding of the o2 sensor () and to double check connections and voltages.



Again thanks to all.

btw....it would be nice to live in the age where you could buy everything US made if you wanted too. Sadly it is no longer. I cant remember the exact number but our cars have very high percentages of foreign sourced parts. I ALWAYS look at where ANYTHING I buy is made, and weigh that against price and all other considerations. Frankly however, I believe in basic economic principles and in keeping costs down. The exception is that when given the choice, I WILL NOT buy chinese, even if I have to pay WAY more.

+1 Let's hope that works. Good input.

I agree...I don't mind Mexico as I go there and enjoy their resorts and
booze. China already owns the US so they don't need any more of
our money.
