HKS finally makes a bellmouth downpipe!
 
I was checking out this magazine my brother bought that is like a brochure sorta full of performance parts for all sorts of cars and I saw that HKS came out with a bellmouth downpipe finally for the 02-07 WRX's.... So I decided to check out their site....
the picture is the same, but the upped $300 price tag, and descriptions tell you.

oh okay, heres the picture of the bellmouth; the bellmouth is cast, and then it goes into stainless....

What a piece of junk! They want an extra $300 for that over their already useless original downpipe? Haven't they seen the products out there already? Cast Iron, HA! HKS continues to have no concept of what makes a decent WRX downpipe.

Look, you want cheap, I'll give you cheap:

No cast iron, no $475 pricetag, perfectly good bellmouth.

My Helix uses a cast bellmouth as do most high quality bell mouth downpipes (Cobb,APS,MRT,BPM.....) Cobb actually goes alittle farther using inconel.Cast iron retains more heat as well as resists warping or cracking as apposed to using a stainless steel flange and pipe.
