Uppipe time. Price.... quality.... hmmm.

I can't decide between the TurboXS uppipe and the GReddy uppipe. The GReddy is $60 less. It doesn't have the flex section though. Which, I could see the flex section being useful for when the engine moves. Maybe keep the pipe from cracking, etc.

Is it worth the extra $60? I am planning on wrapping / spraying too.

Get one with the flex section.... This has been debated over and over on NASIOC as well as all forums. If you wrap them, don't wrap the flex section...

well i would suggest not getting a up pipe with a flex section, i had one that didn't fit because of the flex section hitting the head.
I have a Cobb and it fits perfect.

depends on where the flex section is located on the UP.

Mike, what kind DID you have ?

I run the cheap HKS up pipe without any problems. I vote for no flex section.
