    Ebay Cat-less downpipes?

    Just wondering if anyone has used or tested downpipes from eBay. Two Ive seen are the Circuit Werks and Depo ones.

    I have the PLM downpipe, I wrapped it with DEI titanium exhaust wrap. So far so good, but I also haven't had it on long.

    Oh nice! I saw those also but I’m leaning more towards a resonated one since I live in a condo complex, can’t be too loud like I would like lol

    Haha I feel you. I haven't heard the resonated downpipes in person, but I've heard they do take away some of the rasp. I gotta be honest the catless downpipes are loud especially cold starts in the morning

    I'm running an ebay dp, depo ir i remember right. Install was smooth, and everything seemed to seal up right. Had it on for ~15k miles now and no issues so far. Honestly a dp is one of those things where it's kinda hard the screw up, assuming the bends are correct it's really just some ss tube and flanges. The only thing real concern is the quality of the welds, but mine looked good and has held up very well so far.

    Yea I've looked at that resonated one. None of the more expensive pipes offer that option. The way I see it, an exhaust pipe is an exhaust pipe. They probably made a jig from whoever's design they were stealing and it's good to go. The cheap ones offer factory brackets for shields, resonators on some. They are better featurewise than a lot of big name pipes. I keep going back and forth about ditching my cat. I have a 2.25 opening welded on my factory pipe. The rational side of my brain tells menom not leaving much on the table with a modernfactory cat. But part of me wants to get a full 2.5 inch downpipe.

    Well I probably will have to over the summer. Really want to switch to a fully divided manifold/turbine and use one of these new ball bearing/divided turbos that are on jcw mini, volvo, and some others along with a cam/multiair springs, clutch, and maybe head work. Try for over 250hp with similar or better response. The abarth has terrible lag compared to similar cars with about 15% more displacement but much higher turbo capacity.

    I’m really undecided if I want the resonated dp or just catless with a resonator on the mid pipe. I would love to actually hear the pops and bangs add on the way it should sound and not just one pop every so often followed by a very low gurgle. I mean also to make the car breath better

    BTW thank you all for the replies, I’m new to all this tuning stuff and I use this forum (plus YouTube) for a lot of advice
