Default Godspeed usdm downpipe & uppipe for wrx

I've only had them on for a couple hundred miles, but here's my report card so far. So far so good

Power A
Feels just as torquey & responsive as another WRX I've driven that had the Scoobysport turboback (DP only). Unmistakable jump in throttle/turbo response... just as an example I had to cut the duty cycle on my AVC-R a huge amount just to avoid massive overboost. Reduced the d/c from 55% to 46% when normally just a +/-1% change would be sufficient with the old stock setup.

Fitment B
I had a local race shop install it for me in 3hrs which they said was average. There were a couple fitment issues with both the DP and UP, but they were minor and easily remedied. I got the impression that trying to install this setup by a novice (like me) may be difficult, but it's no sweat for a good exhaust or race outfit. No leaks, rattles or problems with the stock heatshield.
So far.

Quality of material & finish A
Also seems to be at least 15-20lbs lighter than the stock pipes mainly because of the heat shields

Value A+
Maybe the ScoobySport DP & UP is close in value but IMO you can't beat the Godspeed setup for the money. Especially if you place a premium on freedom from hassles like EGT sensor failure and cat efficiency CEL's.

Fubaru;

Could you please be more specific on the power gains? I assume these are from DP+UP+Muffler right?

If using aftermarket muffler...which one do you have?

I ordered the DP+UP+Kakimoto exhaust from Dan... I should receive it in a month. (Not because of waiting time...I will not be around until 2-3 weeks)

Excellent communication (Dan: Sorry for all the hassle and e-mails)
He was kind enough to answer all my questions and doubts.

Julio, the car pulls hard at all rpm above 2K and I'm not even running full boost on the turboxs stage 2 map - only 14.2 max out of 16.5 psi. Found that I don't have to downshift as much to keep inside satisfactory powerband. I got Cobb tuning's 3" exhaust.
