Default custom up pipe for you.

Okay so it has been a fact that an up pipe that does not have a catalytic converter is proven to give you more horsepower but everyone knows that the aftermarket scene for these is ridiculously expensive for a small section of pipe. Seeing as how I am an awesome fabricator I am going to attempt to make custom up pipes and potentially downpipes for the WRX. If I accomplish this I will be mass producing them. No more gutting out your catalytic converter or paying out the b*** for a good horsepower upgrade.

I need your help though. To do this I need a stock up pipe and downpipe if possible to get a format. If someone is willing to give me their stock up pipe and downpipe I will start the fabrication process in designing a flawless product. This product will come with gaskets and a ceramic powder coated layer on top of it all.
So I'm asking for someone to help to get this started anyones help will be appreciated weather that be donating their stock up and down pipe for selling it to me for a very reasonable price. Help me help you and let's see what happens shall we...

The reason they are expensive is because its preturbo so lots of heat. It's very sensitive to exact fitment. Change an angle the tiniest bit and your turbo won't line up to your intake and exhaust.

Nevermind the fact that you can buy cheap ones buuuuut they crack cuz they're made of crap ooooooor they don't fit because they arent quite right

"Seeing as how I am an awesome fabricator.." is this a joke? Sorry, but the market for stock location turbo up/downpipes is beyond saturated.

I would be pretty suprised to see someone bring a quality up pipe to the market for an amazing price discount. Just ad up the materials cost alone.

I've made myself a few up pipes but have no intention to mass produce any stock location parts. Most people don't understand the advantages of paying for better 304 or 321 materials, because you literally can buy 2 or more Chinese parts for the price of a real quality part. Not that I'm suggesting that at all but it's a reflection of the mass produced crap that has flooded the aftermarket with shiny pictures.
