Let me know what time and I'll meet you out there. It's only about 15 mins from my house. If it's running we can take my car out with the Xede and 550 injectors.

Any of you know, if Corky would finish it before Xmas? surely would be a nice buy for a present treating my car.

Anyone willing to guestimate what this downpipe could cost? Maybe whoever guess the price will get a free Corky bell decal!:gay:

His current downpipe prices are listed on his website. I wouldn't expect any deviation.

Would luv to meet you, but my roommate currently only has Tuesday off. Maybe I will have a little bit more time when I pickup my BRG, whenever Corky get down using it.

We do have the car scheduled to arrive next week!
We would like another car - probably closer to Christmas - to test the fit on. As for the size? We will try the 2.5" turbine outlet & 1.5" wastegate exit first and see how it goes. What ever happens, it is still a greater flow area with the w/g vent tube. The d/p does swage into 2.75" after the two tubes combine. Price? Can't really say. Depends on the materials used, and how long it takes to make it. We will know more when the car is here and has been taken apart. Hopefully we will have some updates soon!

Just returned home from BEGi. 91 BRG was dropped off with Stephanie. My car is now in their hands.

Did you enjoy the tour? I'm sorry I couldn't hang around talk more with you. It was good to meet you though. I know that they will take good care of it for you.

Spent about an hour at BEGi. I wish I had some extra money to buy the turbo system that your car has on it. I am thinking of buying the stainless steel BEGi Greddy downpipe. I am also contemplating buying the wideband O2 system.

Thanks bro! Can't wait to see the downpipe and maybe some dyno results if we're lucky.

Thanks...I really like the car the way it's currently setup. I'd recommend the stainless, as it'll last a bit longer (and certainly looks better). I checked your car out as I was leaving. It it very sharp...I really like it with the hardtop. Ironically, I have a BRG hardtop for my car too. Just wasn't on. I think you will be very pleased with the Bell's craftsmanship. Did you check out MarkP's car? It was in the back. The crack in his manifold is pretty significant.

Yeah, looks like Corky's playing the "I've got the flu so it's not done yet" card. Thanks again to 1991BRG for being a good sport and letting BEGi abuse--I mean use--his car for a while. :gay:

Joking of course. Feel better soon Corky. Looking forward to seeing this pipe and getting it on my car.

Oh, and Stephanie did mention that they were going to do a baseline dyno run with the greddy dp. So we'll get to see what difference the new pipe makes.
