I'd be very careful with buying cheap downpipes because gtr's create alot of heat in that section and the welds tend to crack and split the joints if they aren't good quality and the labour for changing them is quiet alot especially if the studs snap off then it's engine out job, so stick to branded ones like milteck for example hope this helps

Nooooooooo downpipes are most prone to cracking, you need good quality dps to replace the upper cats...

And the labor to replace dps is quite a lot, it's not a simple in/out job

I got russ fellows dps , life guaranteed for the 1st owner.... Nuff said. I've got a picture somewhere.

ok. bin that idea then.

No labor I do my own. I have a 4 post ramp in my garden.

Russ Fellows you say, need to go look for them.
