Get a bellmouth designed downpipe. Search around theres better downpipes (COBB, INVIDIA, HELIX)

There's plenty of useful downpipe information to be found here:

Happy reading

Im very happy having piece of mind that my Cobb DP was actually researched tested and made well, not a rip off of some hard working guys doing it because they love what they do, not to make a quick buck. But if it works for you, its yours not anyone elses.

I bought mostly ebay parts for my 03 bugeye and almost everything had fitment issues and the quality sucked. All name brand parts on my STi and I don't have to deal with the headaches and welds coming apart and what not.

Spend your money once and buy quality parts, Oh and I recommend the Invidia DP. Nice thick flanges, mandrel bends and great welds and quality and cheaper than most other name brand DPs.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

^ True words of wisdom, although, sometimes you get lucky and cheap-o parts work and save you a couple bucks. In general though, the older I get, the more I'm learning to trust quality parts.
