Grimm or Cobb Downpipe??

I am planning on a new downpipe. I don't get smogged where I live. Planning on a 16G and a Walbro, Pinks in the spring. What do you guys think?

Thanks
Jimm

Here is the deal I could get the Grimm up and down pipes for the price of the Cobb. Both downpipes have a cast bell mouth, stainless, but the Grimm has a flex point and no cat.

both of them are good quality. They are both reputable brands. Do you care about the smell? Cat or no cat? Either choice you make will be a good one

Either would work great. Both are bellmouth. Cobb is nice, but expensive. I run it and love it, but there are ones just as nice for cheaper. Your choice. What CBE are you going to run if any?

Running catless makes your car stink. Nitrogen oxide.

Yeah, you get a smell. Stick your face over a bucket of gasoline and you'll have an idea. Actually, don't. You will smell unburnt/partially burnt gas.

The smell isn't that bad. I vote for Grimmspeed.

The smell is alright. The only time you will really get pissed off at it is when you are at a stop light and your windows are down. Otherwise, you won't be able to smell it much when driving.

+1 Cobb catted dp. Spend the dough. I bet I'll be able to get a few hundred bucks if/when I decide to sell it.
