Talking Helix downpipe review (pics)

I installed this part yesterday and let me say WOW!! My car feels a whole lot faster than before even a little smoother. I also have a Perrin uppipe, Samco Intercooler hoses, AEM short ram, and a Turbo XS HP boost controller set a 16. Car reaches full boost much sooner then before, don't how much sooner but I can definatly feel the difference. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase, money well spent. All I need now is a catback and cobb stage 2.

Add another satisifed Helix DP customer here! Fitment was no problem. Solid design and feel. I got mine used from another member and got new gaskets/bolts from Gruppe-S. Yee-ha!

No problem just might get a little warmer under the hood and it looks better in my opinion. I think I read somewhere that it keeps the exhaust side of the turbo hotter and this is supposedly better for turbo. Don't know how true it is but it came with a heat shield for a reason.

If I order from gruppe-s, will I need to purchase any additional gaskets/parts? If I remember correctly, the helix comes with a cel-fix and one gasket

If you buy the Helix downpipe from Gruppe-s it comes with 2 gaskets, bolts, and the CEL fix.
