Yes :)
I noticed a big difference when i had mine fitted. Definately more of a difference than having the decat or cat-back fitted.
The turbo spools up so much faster, deffo worth the £££

I had mine changed to the Magnex downpipe and no snappedbolts , but as Chris says it can happen . Best advise would be to take it to someone with previous experience of the
. Then if one does snap they should be able to sort it with the minium of fuss....

Unsure on ST stuff, but i know a few Evo lads havd had problems with S/S manifolds off ebay that were cheap but 'upgraded' parts... They crack on the welds etc,

Hi there mate, I recently purchased exactly the same 3" Downpipe off of the same seller. Mine arrived a few months ago but I haven't got around to fitting it yet!
I also realised that it is not a branded product, however my Father, (a Mechanic himself) gave it the once over and said the quality of it doesn't seem to bad. I am due to have it fitted soon and was wondering if you have fitted yours and if so what was the fitment like, any problems? And what was the increase in extra performance like? Thanks.
