I dont know about their reliability, but i've heard the ERZ turboback and it sounds just as nice as anything else...

i know a guy from a local meet that had the ERZ uppipe/TBE system and he loves it.. i think he paid a total of like 500 bucks.. i think they are just a not so known company making decent stuff. this guy actually sold his helix turboback for this package. sounds very good,

I just got mine in. I have not installed it yet. I order a TBE. all the pieces I got are catless DP, mid-pipe, Axle-back w/ muffler silencer, and they threw in a free catless UP. I paid a grand total of 375 w/ shipping and handling and tax. the welds and all the metal so far look to be quality. I am not sure how it hols up just yet.

that is not a bad price at all! i mean you get what you pay for but sometimes that rule is overridden.. you learn that when you work in the computer industry.

I have the ERZ up/down and cat-back = sounds really nice and feels good in the performance department.

Sounds mean. I just got it in today. I wont even dare walk in to a smog place trying to get it smogged with the DP. I dont know about the up pipe though you really gotta look to find that. Does anyone know if I will pass the sniffer test with the ERZ up pipe installed and stock TBE?

They never tell you they are giving you a free uppipe for some reason. I ordered an eBay TBE for $299. It wasnt ERZ but I looked at the guy who sells the ERZ and they have the exact same description and they look identical. The store I bought from Xo2 Racing, also gave me a free uppipe. The welds are perfect and the install went on very easy. There was a fitment issue with one of the hangers but alittle bit of muscle put it in place. The sound was awesome, very low and loud, but not obnoxiously loud.

Its definatley worth saving the $1000+ you will be saving to NOT buy a brand name TBE and UP. Im also looking at the Huge TMIC that they have. I hear from people it works awesome and its cheap.

edit: just found the page of the auctioned exhaust that I won.

edit: and heres the thread I started after I got the exhaust.

how much did the whole TBE system cost you? How long did it take to put it on? was it hard to install or take any special tools or anything?
