Want to know if the rev9 downpipe will be a good option?
Did you end up going with Rev 9? Thinking about doing the same. Can't see any physical difference or performance difference. Seems odd someone would skip paying 180 on ebay for a Rev 9 and pay 500 for a name brand DP.

Performance wise, I'm sure there is zero difference. But physically, poor welds, inferior quality metal, improper assembly, etc; all can attirbute to low quality products. From fitment issues, to cracked welds, to leaks.

Paying $500 is stupid too. Just troll the classifieds here, or the various for sale facebook groups, and buy a used downpipe of a reputable brand.

I've heard a few stories of the cheaper downpipes blowing welds and coming apart for what its worth. At a certain point the quality really drops off. Only way to get a better idea is find someone who has been running a Rev9 for several years and see if they have had any issues or not.
