Default Cheapest 2.5in DP

Ok, so im on a harsh budget since im going to school, and a shitty paying part time job.

Next money im spending will be on a nice 2.5in downpipe, and exhaust afterwards.

Now, ive seen the racingmazda one... is that the only one made anymore for a good cheap price? I know BEGI has a badass one, but i really cannot spend that kind of money right now.

Just seeing if there are any other options other than waiting for a used one to come around.

Used Tony (RM) seems to be the best bang-4-buck.

Pretty sure the Tony downpipe is cheap and 2.5", he is a board member here.

You beat me to it.

Great!

Tony pipe is $250
BEGi pipe is $285
Spend the extra $35 and get the divorced design.

Email him, it works much better. Someone will have his email. My dp from him was used and ceramic coated, increased flow like a ****. Spool up is really nice with the dp and 2.5" catback.

I didn't know the price difference was that minimal. The divorced design would be far better IMO, though that already gets argued enough. I like the BEGi product it's just top notch.

It's only minimal new-for-new. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for used Tonys.

^ the only way to find out if it will bolt up is to install it.

I'd love a second hand Tony DP, but they seem to be like hen's teeth to pick up in the UK :(
