Default Best downpipe for My car?

I have a Perrin twin catback exhaust, what size down pipe is recommended? Someone is selling a 3 in one for my car. Would that size be ok with the exhaust? What downpipe do you guys like and what size and brand. I plan on moderate mods in the future.

I suggest you read the Downpipe FAQ and decide for yourself. Now that we are in the right forum, go to the top and find it in the Unabomber's Manifesto.

Anything you purchase that has an appropriate connection to your cat-back is the "best" downpipe for your car. Everyone will come in here and tell you the brand they have is the best. Unless they've gone through several, they really don't know any better.

For the most part, ANY bellmouth downpipe with a 3" flat plate interface to your cat-back is going to work on your car. The "best" one is the one you can afford.

Hello Jeff,

Welcome to the Newbie Section; we will be glad to answer your questions!

I have the Invidia V2 Bellmouth Downpipe and I love it!
I had the ERZ (Bellmouth) and then the Perrin (Divorced) DP; all catless and the Invidia is the Best IMO.

What year subie do you have?? Do you already have Engine Management??

~Jeff~

I've heard many good things about invidia v2, and you can easily find them cheap around here.

96accord are you able to pass e-check with it? *stupid newbie question*

Any true bellmouth downpipe will work. I used the helix catless DP on my STi.
