It's a pipe. Connected to the turbo. "Pipe" That's it? Jesus it's worth over $200.00 to some companies LMAO

uppipe takes exhaust gases from the engine to the turbine, downpipe takes unneeded exhaust gases from the wastegate to the exhaust pipe.



The red flow would indicate flow to the uppipe from the exhaust manifold. the downpipe would connect where "exhaust gas discharge" is noted.

hope that helps.

your up pipe would sit between you exhaust mannie and your turbo it connects to the inlet side of the exhaust housing, your down pipe sits on the discharge side of you turbo
