Default New BEGi Greddy DP

Just noticed the new Greddy replacement downpipes on their web site, anyone use it yet?

Been waiting a while for this thing to come back

They are MUCH better than what you get in the kit.

The car we had to test it on ran to lean to finish the dyno run. Up to that point, it had the same power as before. So If I had a car that ran good AFR's, I could get an accurate measurement.

I too have been long awaiting the return of this downpipe from BEGI.

Stephanie - "Up to that point, it had the same power as before" doesn't sound so great. I would be shocked if this downpipe did not add power compared to the Greddy crap-pipe, so a bit of good hard data (before/after dynos) would probably go a long way with convincing many to buy this upgrade. I for one would reallly like to see what kind of ballpark improvement it makes before buying one.. especially in the difference in spool time area so if you can get a properly running car to test this on please please please let us know the results!

The car that we had to do the before and after dynos ran to lean to be conclusive. It had an EMB on it and we could not tune it properly (no cable). So if I had another car.....

I had datalogs of my spool with the stock greddy dp, and then my turbotony 2.5" DP, but the cpu crashed and I lost them all, but butt-dyno and sound was an amazing differance. And by datalog it spooled to full boost at least 800 rpm sooner just my personal experiance without begi's divorced wastegate setup which is supposed to improve spool more
