That sounds way to cheap for a downpipe, especially one made with good materials. stainless steel is pricey.

I just called and they said they don't have them. The only one they can get is the Megan racing downpipe.

Yea I read the build. But they still should've continued to make them. It's not like the dp blew it. Wrong gas. I think every vtec motor should use 91-93oct

Should have because there is still a good market for people that want a bit more from a greddy kit. But they can't say what gains it make or anything because they blew up the car they were showing it off on. Not easy to sell an expensive downpipe with no results to back up the price.

pretty funny story. I posted on the very first page of that build thread that they will never hit 350-360whp they were claiming without blowing something up. They blew it up.

That kind of power with the greddy turbo(t517z)is impossible even with all the supporting mods. It was a good thread tho lol. Read every post too.

The sad part is they blew the motor trying to push for power everyone said wasn't possible but Rick was being stubborn.
