Yeah, thats pretty normal. My buddies SSautochrome turbo manifold on his SR20 powered 240 was ridiculous lol, it changed about 30 different colors before it cracked haha <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (jdsr917)

I wish it were available in AWD...but heck, for $200 how hard would it be to modify it to fit an AWD?

Re: (Silver T5)

I have the ebay dp as well, I bought it for about 250 if i remember correctly. Anyways, I was able to get it installed, for 300. <br>These are the main issues that you will run into- <p>1: The bolts connecting the turbo to the original dp ARE A PAIN.... YOU will have problems with them, and my guy actually broke a bolt, but was able to eventually weld a nut to it and get it out. <p>2: The ebay dp does not come with a cat, so if you want to pass inspection, you will need to cut the straight pipe, and install a hi-flow magna flow 3 inch cat. (my guy welded one in as part of the 300 bux)<p>3: With an aftermarket cat, you will set off the check engine. The way to avoid this is by adding a spacer to the 02 sensor port. You can buy a spacer from IPD for 30 bux (which is criminally over priced) or you can just ask for one at the exhaust shop you get the install done at. (my guy welded one in free of charge)<p>4: all in all you’re looking at about 450-550 bux to get this dp in and running great. I love it, it works wonderfully, and the magna flow cat has a great sound. Plus if you add a ecu tune to your downpipe set up, you are looking at a reliable 275 hp...<p><i>Modified by gmugolf at 1:40 PM 7-11-2009</i><p><br><i>Modified by gmugolf at 1:42 PM 7-11-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: (gmugolf)

Reason these are so cheap is because the specs are sent overseas and companies in china mass produce them which allows the sellers to market them for pennies on the dollar. That would be why multiple distributors are selling the same product, the manufacture overseas sells the product to whomever is interested in large quantities.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>gmugolf</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">all in all you’re looking at about <B>450-550 bux </B>to get this dp in and running great.<br></TD></TR></TABLE><p>I guess my issue with the ebay downpipe would be this, id rather pay a fabricator this much to have a custom high quality unit with a cat. thats guarantee perfect fitment....
