Default Can anyone identify this up pipe?

I just got this car a couple of weeks ago and managed to snag this picture of the up pipe which doesn't appear stock, doesn't seem to have a cat on it.

This could be eBay, Invidia, or many others. I'm pretty sure a lot of aftermarket uppipes have no bungs or flex pipe making it hard to identify while on the car. But then again you could look up some manufacturers and see if they put their logo on that side of the pipe. I know my GrimmSpeed one has the logo right near where it bolts up to the turbo so you know who makes it when looking at it while it is on the car.

Didn't find any manufacturer markings. I guess an up pipe is an up pipe. would I need to be specific with what brand it is though with a tuner or could I just say it has an aftermarket catless up pipe

An aftermarket uppipe is an uppipe, unless it is marked or is in some way unique (this one is not), there is NO WAY to tell who made it.

Screw the uppipe you won't gain anything by changing it! On the other hand you will save oil and a burning smell if you fix that valve cover gasket
