Make a post on m.net saying CORKY RESOLVE MY PROBLEM.
He'll respond, guaranteed. Don't talk any trash or they'll delete it. Just post your problem nicely and it'll be there long enough for him and steph to give it some good attention.

If i have noticed anything at m.net it has been corky's willingness to respond to posts in the FI section when his name is in CAPS in the title.

Now that I think about it, Tony hasn't been around here in a while... Just checked his profile, last activity in April.

Anyway, his email address is [email protected]. Worth a try.

When I ordered mine last year, I paid a total of $355 including shipping for the 2-piece downpipe with flexjoint, plus a 2.5" catalytic converter, which was a stainless Magnaflow with the appropriate flanges welded on. I honestly don't recall the exact breakdown of how much each piece cost.

The "normal" Bell downpipes do come with a flex joint, and although they don't specifically state whether the Greddy pipe does, I would assume so. Call BEGI and ask, I suppose.

One thing the Tony Pipe has going for it is that it's simple. Less welds means less chance of breaking. I would think the divorced DP that BEGI sells is going to be more prone to cracks.

I'm running a Bell setup and have had some minor issues but they have been more than willing to resolve any issue I've had - they even tuned the car no charge and are supporting their kit as if new (now 8 months later) if I have any issues. Not to be a banner add for them but they will resolve issues if you work with them. Besides Corkey is just fun to talk to.

OK, here is the spec which Stephenie gave to me!

The downpipe does come with a flex joint and new gaskets. It also comes with a WB O2 bung already. If it is not needed, there is an O2 plug in the parts bag. The stock O2 bung is located in the upper portion of the downpipe, real close to the stock location. The second bung is located near the flex joint for the WB O2 sensor.

So, Begi does seems to win over at the price point also.

The first two batchs of downpipes did not have matching turbine outlet flanges. The turbo on the develpment car had a different flange. Since the original pipe, we have run into THREE (?!?!) different turbine outlet flanges. So the best method is to send me a photo of the turbine outlet flange so we know which one to use. As for fitment with the exhaust, it bolts up in the stock exhaust location.

akaryrye- if I had known the bung was not there, I could have sent a new pipe or fixed the one we shipped to you.

Out of curiosity, has anyone talked to Tony? Rumor mill down here has him indisposed of, but do not know how true it is. If you do talk to him, tell him 'Hi' for me.

We are trying to make one universal flange. If it does not fit, let me know and we'll take care of it.
