Best Downpipe in your opinion....

Ok, i have my helix catless flex uppipe installed and caught the mod bug. I want to get a downpipe but am totally lossed in terms of which one to get? What in your opinions would be the best one to get. I want power and quality. Price not an issue. I know dp causes car to be louder. I want to get a cat-back late but dont want to be to loud, like over that 95 DB limit or whatever. Thanks for any help with this.

I personally like the 4" turbo XS, but it only works w/ their catback. If you want a different catback, the 3" Helix is the way to go.

See if you can find the Invidia downpipe made for the JDM STi. It's identical to the Helix, except it has a third O2 sensor bung in the bellmouth, which will allow you to run a wideband O2 sensor without removing any of your stock sensors. It comes with a plug if you don't have a sensor to put in there.

Hmm.... I was told only the ones with the Invida tag had them

Well, then, disregard what I said.

I think the Perrin is the highest quality downpipe. The all SS design as well as some of the best welds you have ever seen.
