Default Godspeed Downpipe, Godspeed uppipe and Kakimoto GT-1z Titanium

I got the uppipe installed today at Suby Specialties. Wow everything that has been posted about them is definitely true. They definitely have me for a long term customer.

Well I already had the downpipe installed with the GT-1Z and now the uppipe. I think this is the best combination. the sound, the performance, the quality and the looks if far superior.

If anybody has any question, feel free to ask! Because I really don't know what else to say, besides this setup if freaking awesome.

Thanks to Dan at Godspeed, Steve and Don at Suby Specialties!

How much did they charge for installation? And do you know if they had to cut the heat shield to clear the up-pipe?

i think only up-pipes with non-stock EGT probe locations need the heat shield to be cut. the perin pipe may be the only one that requires this.

WRChris is right!
I don't know what they charge just for the uppipe because I had new gaskets for the downpipe and I told him to replace all the gaskets that are being revealed, got an oil change, probed my manifold for a egt gauge and had the uppipe installed!

yes i do have the EGT bung, but i am not gonna use it just for that reason, that it is much more accurate to have it next to the manifold. i just plugged my downpipe bung with a 1/8" NPT Plug.

Length and availablility, basically.

to use Imprezer's explanation:

A=JDM downpipe
B=JDM catback
C=USDM downpipe
D=USDM catback

A+B=C+D

socal- how long did it take suby specialties to install the up-pipe?

Japanese downpipes are shorter than US downpipes because the b-pipe, which is everything after the downpipe is longer. JDM catbacks are about 3" longer.

Question USDM or JDM for my car?

I have the borla catback which connects to the back of the front midpipe (between resonator and 3rd cat). Which downpipe do I need?

What is Godspeed's website ... does it have pics and pricing info? I'm looking at the Tanabe RM Cat back setup, would it fit w/ their products? I will need 1 high flow Cat so I won't throw a CEL and pass emissions.

The actual installation of the uppipe doesn't take long, maybe an hour or so, but i had them probe my headers for a egt gauge, oil change and replace all my gaskets. the whole process did not take long at all.

scoobyrex,

you would need the usdm downpipe. just keep in mind that it will take out the two cats in the stock downpipe. but the great thing is that is will not trigger your CEL. one of a kind!!!!

Godspeed's website is http://godspeed.hack.net/
it doesn't have pics of the downpipe but i believe it does have pricing info. As for the Tanabe RM Cat back, Godspeed does have a downpipe for you but I don't know which one, jdm or usdm?

And about the 1 high flow cat- Godpeed makes his downpipe with no cats and will not throw a CEL because of some secret recipe he uses!!!

But to pass emmisions you will either have to put your stock back in for that day or find some sort of hook up, so they will pass you no matter what. The downpipe is quality stuff, highly recommended and it is much lighter than stock!

Default Humm ...

Since the Tanabe RM "bolts" onto the factory setup then I'm assuming I'd need the USDM downpipe? Well issue is that I would definitely need a Cat since I don't wanna deal w/ changing the factory setup back every year to pass emissions ... unless there is something which I can stuff into the turboback system to pass emissions?

How would you compare Godspeeds up/Down pipes to TXS and Vishnu's? Godspeed is in my backyard so it would be easy to go to them and have everything installed... that is when I get my WRX.

We are talking about the Godspeed in Troy Michigan right?

Yep that's me. I have a waiting list on the USDM ones but the JDM's are ready to go. If you need one installed it's no problem at all, although it is pretty easy. My downpipe is all stainless steel 304 and very tough. THere are some pics here:

My understanding is that having a seperate pipe for the wastgate gases is a much better design. What was your reasoning for your design?

You know although people say that a seperate pipe for the wastegate is good, I have yet to see any dyno proof. Mine flows VERY well as evidenced by my dyno charts. Now the other problem with doing the seperate pipe idea (which I looked at doing), is that to do it right, it has to completely seperate the gases by using a divider wall. The problem is that all the different turbos have a different depth on their outlet flange so essentially it would have to be custom done anyway to get a perfect fit. This simply is not feasable nor necessary for 99% of the customer's needs. If you are looking at my 480 HP package than I can build you one custom no problem but unless you're looking for those huge numbers, I don't see the reasoning in increasing price and custom making each pipe. The open mouth design is used by APS/Cobb and Turbo XS as well as many other tuners out there. It works very well.

Hey god are you still planning on only making your downpipe w/ NO cats or are you even planning on making a downpipe w/ 1 high flow so we can still pass emissions? Is the USD version of your current dp still $400?

Godspeed, 14 mile... where on 14 are you located? I work at 13 and John R... I'd like to stop by some time and check out your shop, and pick your brain.

geronimo, I'm at 14 and Dqeuindre and consultation fees do apply.
Seriously? I have little time to entertain guests and am in and out all the time. Best to catch up with me at the next Subaru meet if you want to chat. I also attend the Redline meets in the summertime. Come chat with me then.
chuglobal the only good downpipe is the one with no cats so no, I have absolutely no plans to make any with a cat. The USDM version is $399 plus freight/handling.
