uppipe downpipe help

hey guys, I'm stuck between 2 sets of up-pipes and downpipes. I'm looking at getting the Cobb stage 2 accessport setup. anyways, i was stuck between getting the Cobb up-pipe and down-pipe to make it a complete Cobb system, or if i should stick to my original plan of getting the Helix Up-pipe/Down-pipe combo. in either setup, i will get it with the catalytic converter. your help is much appreciated. thanks.

hey 04rex...
actually, you will get the same performance with either brands...
it all boils down to whether you want in all cobb or if you want to use the helix...
But I think you get better value with the helix...
It's cheaper in price but not in quality... and most importantly it performs just the same..

My Helix has a bung at the end of the downpipe for the rear o2 sensor, it also has a bung near the turbo that is for a wideband o2 sensor, but I have a plug in it.

i just ordered the perrin up-pipe. i was going with helix but the diameter is larger (on helix) and the perrin is the same size as stock header. i just read that it is better to keep the same diameter up-pipe for the stock turbo

Go with invidia, you wont' be disappointed. You can get a used upipe for around $100 and they now started making catted DP's. Invidia is by far the best build quality, but if its price your after the helix will do the same job for less.
