I have a $90 Ebay downpipe and cat-delete pipe that I put on about 6 months ago. It rubs against the heatshield under the car, and the hanger rod needed to be bent a little. Next time I drop the subframe I'm going to use a hammer to bang a depression in the downpipe where it rubs. And I might wrap it with exhaust pipe wrap. For $90 I'm very happy with it!New Yokohama Advan Apex tires, an eBay downpipe, and front axles (both had cracked inner boots) are on the way. I went with a $99 eBay downpipe because a well known local said he has put three of them on three different TT225's. I guess we'll see how that works out, lol. My experience with cheap parts is that they almost always fit like ****.
Are you deleting your cats also? A 3" cat-delete pipe along with your downpipe is a significant power increase.
