Default Getting a downpipe

I am getting close to buying all the stuff for my turbo setup. One thing i dont know about is the downpipe. Should i just buy the flange and have a local exhaust shop make one or is there somewhere you can buy one?

Thanks in advance!

depends on manifold you use. easiest would be to make a custom one. crush bent should be around $100 from your local muffler shop and you know its gonna fit

If you use an off the shelf manifold, there will most likely be a good dp out there from somewhere. What mani?

First of all, we need to know what manifold you will be using. If you don't plan on making one yourself, I recommend dropping your car off at a local muffler or fab shop. You do not want to drive too far without a downpipe. If you happen to be running a 1.8 hks manifold and can wait, I may have an option for you in a few months

Also, try to stay away from crushed bent piping. You may regret this choice down the road when you try to maximize your hp potential.
