Does the change in flow from the cat back system confuse the ECU and gear ratios? Has anyone had this problem before?

Also worth noting is that up shifting in manual mode the car almost feels like its double clutching with gears upward the RPM remains the same but load on the engine is higher. (you can hear it)

Any feedback would be great.
I think its because the steptronic is slow to downshift. At least for me, downshifting is horrible. It takes a good two seconds for it to downshift.

Secondly, I think the car is actually holding the exhaust better when upshifting. It might be my intake, but when shifting at the sweet spots(~3k) then it doesn't feel like I am losing much power as before.

Since these are just bolt ons, it shouldn't affect anything drastically.

If I were you, I would try resetting your auto transmission, since the car over time learns your driving style. Also, give it some time for the ECU to adapt : )
