I did one small tack weld at 6 o clock and it's been solid for about 3 months now.

Any update here? I heard they revised their downpipe design and flange but not sure if it's completely solved now…

Maybe heat wrap it is… any recommendations on what to use?

Their customer service reached out to me saying send back the downpipes you have and $100 deposit. Once we receive it we'll send you our new revised ones that don't rattle. Pretty sure they just made the downpipe and flange all 1 piece

Right now i've got a set in my garage that came with the o-ring, you're saying they've updated the design again so it's not needed? Might try to get mine exchanged.

A few popular midpipe brands are now offering resonators as options now but I see your point

You might as well just install it and get the flange welded.

It took my welder literally 5 minutes to tack weld and mine is now problem free.

Cost me $20

I had the same problem, used very thin aluminum sheet (can be purchased from any hobby store) and cut a piece about 1/4 the diameter of the downpipes, wedged it in the flange, has been rattle free for the last 2 months. I'm sure it may work itself out at some point, but it was a $9 fix and took all of about 5min.
