Default "Best" down pipe for '11 wrx

I have a '11 Wrx 5dr. Love the car and have finally decided to start moding it. So who makes the "best" catted down pipe?
By that I mean:
Fit and finish
Cost
Performance

"Best" is so vague. There are plenty that fit properly and they all pretty much give the same gains. I went with the Invidia catted divorced wastegate downpipe and I love it. Catless are cheaper FYI, so if you don't mind the stink I'd get one of those.

Does a divorced waste gate make a big difference or are we splitting hairs?

Go with the Turbo XS version 2 and you can change the cat out whenever you want without removing the entire downpipe.

There is no "best" downpipe. Buy a brand name and it will fit just fine. Read the reviews section. Read Unabombers Manifesto 4 times about downpipes as EVERYTHING is explained in there.
