perrin vs. invidia uppipe?

trying to decide which uppipe to get. I am wondering if there is any difference really. Besides the price a little bit.

They are both quality uppipes. You might also want to look into the Helix uppipe because it has a flex section and the Turbo XS uppipe because it is made of cast iron, so it expands with the manifold.

Definately use new gaskets on the uppipe install or you WILL get a leak.

Get the stock gaskets from your Subaru dealer. As for EGT, the Perrin comes w/ a resitor to plug in.

well i have changed my mind on the uppipe since i was given an offer that i could not refuse for an invidia uppipe. Thanks for helping me out guys. Can you let me know which gaskets i will need. I saw the uppipe kit on subaruwrxparts.com but do i really need to change all of them or just the two on the uppipe?

I bought five gaskets. Header to uppipe, uppipe to turbo, downpipe to turbo, manifold to block and one more, I used all of them except the downpipe to turbo.

I reused my exhaust manifold gaskets with no leaks. The only two I replaced are the two uppipe gaskets.
