+1 it is cut for sure. A clean cut with a rotating saw right?
So many idiots in this world. Its a shame that they have to put down a company to get what they ****ed up on.

Why did you cut it anyways?

Also

"After a day of headache trying to figure out what the small noise was coming from finally figured it out when my downpipe snapped on the way home"
With a full cut like that. It would have made a loud noise. Not a small one.

LIES LIES LIES!!

No i dropped my car of at hyundai all day because i thought something wrong. This is not fake in any way shape or form. I picked the car up at 4:30 saying they could not duplicate noise. On the drive home i got about 2 minutes away from my house and WHABOOOM and its louder than hell.

If i can get the stock one on ill drive down to ARK themselves.

Im not trying to bash the company in anyway so those of you who think i am you do not need to post here.

All should be resolved shortly i was just hoping they had warranty.

Since you had test pipe, I guess you did hear hissing noise from 1st gear to 2nd gear change. it is because the deleted CAT.

You can stop by us, we can replace it for you. It is not a big deal.
I know that sound, but the sound i was hearing was much different and started last night. It sounded almost as if a bolt was loose and rattling around. Hyundai told me the sound was of fuel because i was running really rich. But Then i guess time told me the true issue.

Does the stock downpipe fit Ark headers and testpipe?

And can i drive with one Ark downpipe and 1 stock downpipe because i don't feel like changing both out if i can just change one and save some time.

YES, ARK dp and TP fits OEM setting.

you may replace one for the temporary driving. May ask where did you buy the exhaust ?

Yes i know it looks like a cut believe me. But this is a huge inconvenience to me as well. Now tomorrow between getting off of work at 9am and going to class at 4pm i have to lay under my car with about an inch of working space and change these out with the stock ones then drive 2 hours on Thursday down to ARK to have them replace the one.

Believe me i don't have any of the cutting tools necessary to do this I'm a 20 year old full time worker and student at the Fire Academy. I don't have time for bullshit.
