I say go with something that has a bell mouth or just an opening for the wastegate. As far as I know, the HKS doesn't have either..

not too sure about the XS one.

take a look at Perrin, Cusco, Gruppe-s's Helix dp, and maybe even scooby sport...

hope this helps..

Definitely steer clear of the HKS piece. It completely blocks the wastegated gas, and is not even made of stainless steel.

The TurboXS DP on the other hand is a bellmouth design of high quality as is the Helix pipe from Gruppe-S. You really can't go wrong with either of those pipes.

well the xs engineering dp only removes the first cat and you need another piece that they call their mid pipe to remove the second cat. I don't know if it has a bellmout or not. The HKS on the other hand removes both cats and is not bellmouth.

The Helix pipe from Gruppe-S has a cast bellmouth and eliminates both cats. It will mate perfectly with the rest of your exhaust system.

I don't know much about the Vishnu pipe, but I'll take Freddie's word that it's a good piece.

Hey wat do u guys think of a scooby sport down pipe and upipe combo? It is a lil pricy though...almost 6 bills for a few mods. But im sure the vishnu dp is around 4-5 bills anyway...but im not quite sure on the price of that. can anyone do a price check?

The scoobysport parts are backordered for an unknown amount of time. As far as getting a price on the Vishnu DP just ask Freddie, your local Vishnu dealer.
