So far the best deal I've found is a 3" ATP from Renn-Art for $157.00. Is this the way to go?

I see that many people have the ecode test pipe, but it's $249 vs. the ATP which is $157.00. That's a BIG difference!

It's just a 3" pipe. I have the ATP and it is great.

That's great to hear! I agree, I can't see paying $250.00 for just a test pipe. I can get a high-flow cat for just a little more than that.

Thus far, it looks like I'll be getting the ATP.

are you going to run a full exhaust system or just a test pipe?

I'm just wondering because you sold your borla because it was too loud, right?

If you are getting someone to install your kit, i'm sure they wont' charge that much to weld you up a test pipe.

I've been watching. There's only one out there right now and the guy never responded to my PM. Now some other nob decided that "he's got dibs on the test pipe". I'm going to install this thing when the time is right for me, not someone else. I'll watch the classfieds, but for $157.00, I might just go with the ATP and none of the hassle. [up]

Yes I sold my Borla because it was way too loud for me. Right now I have a Magnaflow muffler. I'm going to see how the stock exhaust works with a test pipe and the Magnaflow. If my CAPS time is close to BLACK B5's, I'll leave well enough alone. If it's too much slower, I'm going with a Techtonics DP and custom from there to the Magnaflow. It'll definately have the best resonator I can find!

I'm doing the install myself. As it turns out, I'm the only mechanic I trust. My rate is cheap and I don't screw up too much. [rolleyes]

As I said, $157.00 doesn't seem too bad.

Ever thought of just gutting your cat?

No, just not my style. I'd rather have the test pipe. Not worried too much about the money, I just don't like wasting it unnecessarily. Wait a minute...I HAVE AN AUDI! [:D]

To be completely honest, a test pipe for our cars that is produced in multiples should only cost around $100.00 to $120.00. Eurocode getting $249.00 is a little out there.

you gotta be used to it with our cars. Everything is overpriced. 280$ for an air intake? Yes japanese cars get them for $40, but I'd still pay more for my audi status.
