I'm guessing they forgot to ship the downpipe since Fed-Ex would normally allow the package to go to destination and have the receiver file the claim. It would take some massive damage to the box for them to return to sender and even then I don't believe they would. Not a big deal but would have liked to have my downpipe arrive with the rest of it. I'd prefer to be told the truth if it were a shipping mistake and just overlooked...not like I'd roast him for it, the product is exactly as described and priced right. So now instead of installing the exhaust system this weekend as planned I get to wait another week.

And John (nissangtrpower on Ebay), if you're reading this, yes, I'm still going to leave you positive feedback.
Ya , this guy just gave me the same sort of excuse a week after ordering it, Not impressed. Should have just ordered it directly from Megan

Wouldn't recommend NISSANGTRPOWER

wow really? i got my cbe from him and i got it in about a week in good condition i was stoked. He made no sense when i called to ask about what gasket to use, he kept saying to use the gasket he provided despite the fact that it clearly would not bolt onto the oem cat... i just hacked it out a little to make it fit on the donut but if i had used the little crappy gasket it would have leaked like crazy

If You live in an area without snow these are probably great, mine rusted pretty badly over the winter, mostly at the welds. So far no leaks, but the rust on the tip doesn't look great. I love the sound though and I have gotten a lot of compliments on it, the rust is the only issue and I've heard that a lot of name brands are prone to this as well

Here's a followup from a long time owner

I've had mine for a couple of years now. It's the one with the N1 tip. The tab on the downpipe that bolts down broke a couple months ago at the weld, and the whole thing is loud as hell now where it used to be fairly quiet. Lotta highway drone depending on speed, not too bad but you definitely notice it.
Downpipe looks awful, it's holding up the worst out of all the pieces. I'm really wanting to get under there or pull it and spray it with BBQ grill paint or something to seal it.

Having said all that, it still certainly did the trick and continues to serve it's purpose. I'd love to get one of the cobb clones for something a little less conspicuous, but it's hard or impossible to find the ERZ/SRS one now and none of the other ones on ebay have a resonator.

Well I stand corrected on availability at least, even nissangtrpower has it back in stock now. And with the resonator!
The flex section scares me, and the weld in the turn near the canister. And it's $300

Yes. Just get longer hangers. Kartboy is the most popular. I bought a cat back from jna performance for little over 200 and I love it. Fits better then the sr*s and sounds better to me. It's not as loud but a much nicer tone and rumble. It's a cobb replica and it's amazing. It's made of t304 steel I believe and the welds are awesome. The flanges are 1/2 inch thick and everything is good quality. I bought a Invidia v2 Catless downpipe and together, they are perfect. I love the sound and very impressed with Jnas quality. Sorry if this is grammatically incorrect or sounds sloppy, I'm on my iPhone. Just thought I would tell people about this set up because i love it and for the price, I couldn't be more happier

bottom line: every car i get in the future, im gonna look for an ebay system like this (obviously doing research first)
did you use the gaskets provided in the kit for the turbo to downpipe?
