Default Invidia Uppipe

I want to just start off with this is the worst install that I have ever done in my life. This was no fault of the uppipe rather it was the result of a downpipe stud that broke off inside the turbo housing.

As a result me and my mechanic John had to take the turbo out, drill the stud out, re-thread the hole, etc... Over all the uppipe has greatly improved performance. Boost comes on much earlier making the power band feel very smooth.

Fitment of the pipe was great. Once the engine was lifted a little it went right on and mated up perfectly. I would say that that this was the most noticible thing that I have done so far. ( I only have a cat back and intake, stock ecu on an 02). So, if you are looking for a good up-pipe at a reasonable price, got mine from tristan at King of parts, the invidia is great.

Not sure what else to write so post questions if you got em.

Did your factory egt fit correctly on this pipe? Because mine will not on this invidia piece, it is a matter of course thread vs fine thread any input would be a great help

I used a M12x1.25 bolt as suggested by Unabomber in his guide. I had to grind off a little bit to make it fit. Check this out, it will explain why you don't need the EGT.

Lucky you, I did have some trouble with mine a while ago, with the holes of the up where the bolts go, they were a bit moved, like 2mm to the side, it was some sort of magic to make that fit.

I had no problem. It went right in. I used it because as of this moment I have no EM.

I buy almost all of my parts from The King of Parts. They are a nasioc vendor. It's listed on their website for $149. http://www.thekingofparts.com/servlet/Detail?no=214

I cant remember what I paid for it. Mabye a little less? These are great guys to buy from. They always hook me up with awsome prices.

I had this installed in my '06 STi, have had no exhaust leaks and no installation problems. Great price and value.
