Its what this thread is for, gauge interest and find out what people would want, keep the comments coming. Scott will build what customers want to buy. Let's get some people on the list, thank you.

Same here Uncle Scotty, have had a stromung system on my saabaru for many years and looking to get a stromung setup on my just swaped ej207 bugeye wagon. Really hoping I can generate enough interest here to get stromung to fabricate the twin scroll down pipe.

I'd love to get one. I have a VF37 on a 2.5RS with a Tanabe Medallion Touring Exhaust (had the full exhaust on stock WRX turbo, now running JDM downpipe with small extender).

I'm hoping to hear from more people here so stromung can justify making us downpipes, keep your comments and questions, please comment on features you would like, thanks.

I'd buy one if it were a decent price (under $400)....any more than that and you can get a custom one built for less.

I would want it to be flat flanged to fit regular aftermarket cat back system (not stock donut style - who would want that?)

I have know idea why it is so freakin' hard to get a USDM length twinscroll downpipe.

They are either not the right size (EDO Performance's Tomioka Racing 2.38") or way overpriced (MP's $680 for group buy! )


Seriosly, WTF?

I just don't understand why a vendor wouldn't jump on the opportunity to make some money......these swaps are becoming more and more popular and there is most certainly a demand.

If I had the resources I'd do it myself.

Volume low, and it's not as cheap as you think as a result. JDM length ones are cheap because they sell in numbers in japan. USDM length ones, even if cheap would probably sell... in the teens?

Business is business.

I would buy one, but...
I just bought an intermediate pipe and trying to determine the choke points in the exhaust. The donut's inner diameter is something like 2.39".
The pipe on which it sits is even smaller inner diameter.
This has to go, but some kind of flexible section would have to be added.

The Tomioka downpipe has a shape that works, something like that in a 3", with a high flow converter and maybe a resonator too, like the HKS single scroll (below) and like the V9 OEM would work for me.

I'd buy one if they implemented a "true" divorced wastegate design like MP, but kept it under $400. Flat flange is a necessity too... cat or catless I don't care
