Re: Custom Downpipes (Cicada)

I'd just go with a pre-fabbed one....I read on here somewhere that the placement of the Cat/o2 Sensor is critical...and if placement isn't correct, you'll get a CEL.

Tigers81, Maxim, and me of course. They seem to work very well on our cars.

Re: Custom Downpipes (BOOSTED S60R)

I had a custom one made with a removable race cat so i could put in a straight pipe in its place. The craftsmanship on the welds is like art.<br>I like it, but if other options would have been available when I started the project, I would probably just buy one (with beautiful welds).

Full 3" turbo back. but I would expect to get another one made 3" turbo back would be in the 1200-1500 range at the place here.
