Evo = 3'' pipe, gently stepped to 2.5'' -- $183 shipped

Ebay = 2.5" the whole way -- $119 shipped


Would power gains from the Evo be worth the extra $60?

you're not goign to see much gain on a 3in testpipe with a ko3. 2.5in is best for k03 and k04, while 3in should be for bigger setups

i just think that the step is a good design on Evo's part. basically, it lets the mouth of the turbo meet right up with no sharp edges, as well as makes the downpipe meet with no sharp edges. just one smooth pipe size transition

The Quality/fitment and finish of the ER pipe is what you're getting. I can almost guarantee exhaust leaks w/ that ebay pipe. do it right the first time and get the ER pipe.

yeah, if it was a $200 difference i might say go for it, but for $60 its a no brainer. get the shit you know is quality.
