Unhappy greddy downpipe upgrade

ok so my stupid greddy downpipe finally cracked and im SOL on a driveable car. i know begi makes a really nice downpipe, but i dont have $500 bucks. i know mazdaracing used to make one but i guess he doesnt make em anymore. does anyone have a decent alternative to the begi, as much as i like it and want it i dont have the money and need to drive my car.

The BEGi in mild steel is only $375. The other ones out there that you see are almost all not in production currently. If you wait patiently every once in a while one of these discontinued downpipes comes up for sale used but.. if you need it asap, BEGi is your best bet, plus it's reallllly nice, and worth the $ IMO.

urgaynknowit had a toney downpipe forsale.

I just replaced mine with another factory dp, you can pick them up used pretty cheap.

Miatamaniac92 had one he was willing to sell.

Good Luck!

first i've ever heard of a cracked greddy dp, cheapest option would be to have it welded. like mentioned above you could also get a factory one from someone who's upgraded. i think i have mine somewhere, pm me if you want me to look for it

Is Turbo Tony real or just a myth?

If you take it to Midas or a mom and pop muffler shop, just point at it and give them less than 40 bucks to weld it. I had my DP made at a muffler shop within 5 hours of me walking in there.

Is Tony still making his downpipes? Mine is still working great. Knocks on wood so it doesn't fall off the next time I run the car.

If it leaks after being welded, the flange probably warped. Get it sanded/machined flat.
