Default Greddy downpipe comparisons

This has probably been posted before, but I was unable to find a relevant thread. I'm looking to upgrade my Greddy stock downpipe and I was wondering if something like the BEGI pipe is worth the cost difference over this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OBX-R...Q5fAccessories

I realize there are potential (likely) quality differences, but at a difference of over $200 I'm willing to take that chance since my car is a dedicated track car that is only used 2-3 times a year. Opinions?

If you track use it, it will definitely break. And I seriously doubt it will fit properly.
