yes it does. we made sure not to make the pipe TOO big so you dont have to go buy different gaskets.

to tell you the truth, i'm not sure what the standard is when other vendors take payment in the group buys. could anyone advise us on what "typically" happens regarding payment in group buys? i dont want to make it harder for people so i just want to make sure we are in the norm.

got you on the list. when i was prototyping this piece awhile back i put the stock heatshield on the pipe. i remember doing a little modification..but i cant remember exacty what i did. i think that i just took the brackets out and it fit right in.

good question, people ask me about this frequently because we are the first in the industry to offer one without a flex. What i can tell you is that from testing one on my car for a long time now, i have had zero issues with this piece(my prototype wasnt even as nice as these production ones). If you take a look at the stock "flex", it actually doesnt even flex that much. My thoughts were; i put 1000's of miles on my test piece with no issues, the stock piece doesnt really even flex that much, we will gain higher flow with out a flex, and it will be more cost effective for you guys....these are the exact reasons we made the pipe we did. A few customers have had to loosen the 6 bolts that go from the collectors into the head to get theirs to fit perfect but that really isnt a big deal. so in short, i have yet to have a single problem with even my prototype that i have had on my car for a long time now.

wrxed is right. to make MAX potential from this piece a mild porting just to one port(passenger side collector inlet) would be a good idea. However, you definitely do not have to do this to find gains. I suppose i should be pumping our pnp manifold services here but i really dont care...just being up front and honest.

thanks for all of the activity on this so far guys
