So, i should replace all the gaskets when i do the UP and DP swap huh? just because it would be easier not to have to do it later... I'm pretty settled on the Invidia UP now, good quality for the price...

If you drop the headers you should absolutely change all the gaskets.

FYI, people have made 800whp on a 2.25" uppipe and it wasn't a restriction.

i have the HKS uppipe and it comes with one gasket where it bolts to the exaust manifold and new screws for where it bolts to the turbo. Just get the 2.2 ohm resistor and plug it into the harness to shut the CEl off. Cap off the bung for the sensor

But mosc....there ARE no 3" uppipes. Are there?

And for that matter...a 2.25" inlet uppipe is pretty big (bigger than HKS/helix/BPM etc)....so I would sure hope it's not a restriction!

Might as well go with Grimmspeed's port/polish of exhaust manifold elbows and their high-flow crosspipe since your removing the manifold anyway! Do it all at once, since its gonna be part of the labor.
