Is It Worth Installing ?

I was just wondering if any of you have heard of this brand of dp and header and if you think it is worth installing. I bought them off ebay I know that ebay products are not the greatest but they do have a tempting price. I figured that they would at least last untill next summer till i get more money to get brand name parts . If you have any info it would help alot thanks oh and dont be scared to call me an idiot for buing ebay stuff.


DP= ETS (extreme tuning series) this is a 3" catless with bellmouth design
Header/uppipe= KCR

I also bought a 3" apexi n1 cbe & turboxs mbc

You should get some EM before you install any MBC

If the all the pipes fit I say install them...but you won't really see any real gains without proper tuning.

I was planning on having the shop that will be putting this stuff on do a tune and reflash after install but i didn't know if it was worth the money to get ebay parts installed or just eat the money and learn the hard way

Anytime we have a customer bring in Ebay parts they never fit correctly and we end up having to cut and weld them to fit...which costs the customer more...so your cost will end up being the same or more than if you buy the good R&D'd parts to begin with.

Except for their $1,000+ price tag.

Why buy the same parts twice...pay a little more now and get some good parts. If your on a budget buy the downpipe and get a tune. EM and a dp are going to be your "best bang for the buck"

we get it here for like close to 700 with uppipe. if used one even cheaper.
for me personally i would still choose to get everything done then go for tuning one shot as to save the tuning fees in future.

ps. theres not right or wrong.just different opinions and suggestions .cheers.
