Default Which Uppipe? Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!!

Hey guys,
I need to decide on an Uppipe.
My final setup will be:
VF30 Turbo
TurboXS Stealthback w/ Prodrive Muffler
FMIC (eventually)
Walbro Fuel Pump
STi Injectors
and finally
Utec (eventually)

I was going to get the vishnu 321 kit, but it costs soo much more than all the other uppipes, is it really worth it?

Thanks guys,
Mike

No uppipe. Do headers if you are gonna be above 450 HP, which you are going to be.

I basically know headers are a waste, im more looking into finding out if there is any advantage to the different uppipe materials, and if that advantage is worth the more $.

After much review...I went with the Perrin. It was less then the Vishnu, PDE, and APS which were my other choices. It dosn't have a o2 bung and it comes with a 100% no-CEL. Fit was great. Installed new gaskets as well. Got the work done at MJP Performance. Gino and Mike were very helpfull. Also the guys at Perrin were very responsive with e-mails regarding there product. It's made of 321 stainless as well and is also very nice looking.

Hope that helps some.

A complete bolt-on assembly including cast up-pipe and a truly innovative Double Wall 321 stainless steel flex coupling that incorporates an internal 321 stalinless steel Endurance flow tube.
Quote:
To achieve high exhaust gas speed, the turbocharger entry duct must be manufactured with a precise internal taper. As it is all but impossible to achieve a precise taper in stainless steel tubing over the entire distance of the duct, the APS Tapered Turbocharger Entry Duct is cast in a high nickel content ductile iron. This material also provides maximum durability under extreme exhaust gas temperatures and it is the unique internally tapered profile that ensures optimum exhaust gas speed. The result is crisp turbocharger response and the highest horsepower possible under all driving conditions and at any engine speed.
btw its an APS Uppipe

If I had some more cash (before I bought my used Godspeed) I would have put an APS on my car too. APS stuff is the SHNITZ-IT YO!

I've got the PDE. I picked it up because it seemed to be well known for not having leaks and was cheaper than the Vishnu. Works awesome, no leaks for me either. That APS pipe looks awesome, but i imagine it's a little pricey.

i have a vishnu 321, but if i had to do it again i'd probably get the perrin gen 3 and ceramic coat it instead.
