looks good, so you swap out the downpipe between street and race?

I made it with a 3" DP and I had an extra 4" V-band flange. So I asked the guy that I made this for if he wanted a 4" Dump pipe too and he said "hell yeah" So I suspect he'll run the 4" at the track and maybe on the dyno. Dont know if he wants to run it on the street.

Thanks. It aint the prettiest (like some of these badass shops put out with tig welding and such), but it should get the job done.

man, your being humble cause she does look nice. The welds might need a touch up of two but seriously, its a good looking kit and retains a/c. I would run the 4" DP on the street all the time. Would love to see the ppl's faces when you drive up with an open downpipe!

Thanks dude. Some of the welds look a litle big because I went over some "suspicious" looking spot Open 4" DP F T W! I suspect that the 3" DP will really choke off the power on this turbo.
