Default 1.8 HKS manifold options on downpipes?

I'm going to be taking owner ship of a used HKS kit but the down pipe looks a little on the slim side (the front pipe looks like the standard exhuast).

The turbo is a T25 i was wondering if i'm going have to go custom or wether the Begi down pipe might fit?

look forward to any advice you can give on this matter.

Phil

friend of mine has the same dilema, custom DP seem to be logical. But I think he decided to get an Begi SSM manifold $499 for the T25 turbo, also with Begi's DP $460.

If your looking for a custom dp and your local exhaust shop cant help you out. You might want to consider giving begi a call and seeing if you can send them your mani and see what they can do about it.
