Downpipes

I did a search and I can't find anything in regards to SS Downpipes. Are all downpipe pretty much the same as in photos they pretty much look like clones.

Told to go with SS but 1K for downpipes compared to other brands is steep. Is the SS better for X reason or ??

Go with BMS or VRSF. If money isn't an issue, I'd say go for AR Downpipes.
However, from installing the two former downpipes and owning the latter, I say all are great downpipes overall.
SS are too pricey and not much of a difference.

thanks, I went with the SS ones becuase I got them at a steal with software.

Right now I need to figure out the intercooler question. The AA one work but the plumbing does not work with a ER charge pipe.

Gains on the catless DP's aren't significant on the 1M as the cats are already high-flow. We saw ~10 hp during software testing. If you are looking for the last few horses, you will find them in the DP's.

If I had to choose and have the budget, get the AR. Otherwise the Wagner DP's are well built and won't break the bank.

We just got a new shipment in of our 3" pipes, 304 grade stainless steel, lifetime warranty, cast mouth and very reasonably priced.

There's a little more than 35 reviews on our website if you're interested

AR Design & Macht Schnell both make great N54 downpipes.

But I echo the sentiments of the other vendors here, Catless is the way to go
