Most divorced DPs arent really divorced, and provide no benefit over a bellmouth. Except that depending on what brand DP and turbo you go with, the flange in the opening of the DP has to be trimmed so that it fits properly.

I was wondering about the trimming aspect after seeing the Invidia over and over again.
I like Perrins although they only seem to come catted.

The big difference there is price. Catted is more expensive. Unless you are running a larger turbo for bigger numbers will that matter. A bellmouth is where its at man.

I had a very smart mechanic in Minnesota lecture me about divorced downpipes being counterproductive because they merged exhaust streams by slamming them into each other further down the pipe compared to a bellmouth that facilitates a swirl mix of both streams smoothly without disrupting either. Divorced aren't really divorced for more than a foot generally, and where they do merge in, it's not a 4.5" wide piece of pipe at that point. No, I'd go so far as to say bellmouths are better not just equal.

I suppose that does make sense, looks like bellmouth is where its at.
I know that I saw an actual divorced one somewhere that came to an open end. It just dumped to the ground after maybe a foot and a half. I have searched for one in my free time over the past week though, coming up empty. So I guess bellmouth is the rout I'm going.

Bellmouth catted. If you go catless, get a cat downstream. The fumes suck and at least you can do YOUR part for the trees. LOL

That's a EWG with a dump tube.



That image is from Grimmspeed btw and the EWG is coming off the UP.

^ satisfied on what I'm getting.
Today I uninstalled the HKS EBCS and hooked up my GS EBCS.

now on to my new thang!,,lol
I am going to replace my cheap wheels soon and got looking around at different wheel threads.
Think I may want to go with white wheels, or should I stick with black?
Or I could do what Jon does and just spray them as my heart desires when ever I feel like changing them up, so maybe just find a nice set of used whatevers and do that.

Opinions please.

PS. If you havent noticed, I'm not starting new threads for my 10 million questions, I'll just keep adding into my old thread from before I picked her up. I think for the most part, you guys that care will keep up with it Thanks for all your info and input
