Divorced or Bellmouth DP

Which do you like, any preferences and why?
I have decided on an invidia, I like the quality and the brand and they have a divorced wastegate model and a bell mouth model.

I have a bellmouth design downpipe and have no complaints. Any differences in power gains between the two isn't going to be noticeable. It pretty much comes down to personal preference.

Perrin did a very good job with their downpipe.

well.. i can see the concept of a divorced pipe for the wastegate making sense.. i just dont think its necessary ya know? their reasoning behind it is to reduce exhaust turbulence.. but whatever i dont think its gonna be noticeable.. especially sense they eventually meet up anyway.. and as long as you have a bellmouth or divorced wastegate downpipe your in good business.. stay away from the hks that only has the opening for the exhaust which makes the wastegate fight to get it's portion out... thats what i have.. but whatever its the HKS and i got it for free from a friend who upgraded to the bellmouth Helix..

The Invidia V2 is the bellmouth version and the V3 is a combination of bellmouth and divorced. The difference in price is about $30-40 I believe and I would just spend the extra money if it were me. =)

I have the perrin divorced bellmouth downpipe, but I got it for a great deal from a local WRXer. I bought the dowpipe for $200, after buying the borla hush catback for $350 from him .The nice thing about this combination is that there was no midpipe required. The hush system already the 3" flange so it bolted right up to the downpipe. Perfect fit! I love the combination.
