80 dollar flange
250 dollar downpipe
200 dollar labor (at least, i've been quoted 3hrs and more)

that turns out to be an expensive downpipe

i've seen pics of the UK pipes and the only one i would consider is the RCM unit. I don't like the welding I've seen on the other two pipes i mentioned.
Unless something like this becomes the tipping point for cheap Chinese eBay twin scroll downpipes for the US.
