This place has good prices on vbands. http://store.racing-solutions.org/3mivas.html
The flanges are mild steel, but honestly thats not a big deal, to me at least.

not bad, but when you find it for $28 for SS its way too much
i got a good connection i guess, the flanges are mild but band is SS, good enough for me

MazDilla-not gonna let you down, im working hard every weekend to make this happen asap...if you decide to let me do it, just wait to buy and have it shipped straight to me, save money that way...

the flanges are mild, the v-band is SS, i dont have a link for that price
he gave it to me irregularly through an arrangement, ill see if he wants to do some kind of deal with the forum, offer same price to everyone here or something like that
how would i go about that? who would i need to talk to...from here, Philip?
would i just post his email or phone number because thats not an advertised price...

You just set up the deal and hook us up. None of the "ongoing group buys" here had to get philip's permission first. I'm sure he's all for everyone getting the best deal possible.

FWIW, there was a pretty widely believed rumor in MSM-ville that a 3-inch turboback "does not fit" ... apparently not a lot of people actually tried! TurboTim made it fit my car just fine.

I haven't actually seen my car yet (tomorrow.. so close) but my friend who's holding my parts says my Begi DP has a 3" exit...? Of course I'll take measurements but this is pretty unexpected news. He's also saying the Enthuza test pipe and catback flanges don't jive. We'll have to see what's up..

Maybe I'm better than most hehe jk. Yes my stuff would fit easily with FM's full butterfly brace. It's actually higher than the OEM exhaust on one of the cars I did. If it's done right anyone can make a 3" (or much larger actually) fit fine.

Hey Evan, I finally got around to teaching my brother how to "update" the website. Your stuff is the only thing on the computer at the time of upload, so you're our "stainless exhaust" section. ha.

Evan has a 4x9x18 magnaflow for reference
