    These pipes are quite popular in my neighborhood. Good quality, haven't heard any cons to date.

    Thanks! Do you guys have emissions tests and run spacers? If so, any feedback regarding CEL with these? Thanks.

    How loud is the car with these installed using a stock exhaust setup? Does the spacer work or do you get codes?
    Thanks,

    I'm in talks with the seller. Might be getting a pair of these but not sure yet. If I do, I'll post a review.

    My best friend is Russian and I'm rarely able to trust him. Ipso facto, I will not trust these downpipes.

I would go as far as to say that ETun stuff tops 97% of US made exhaust parts (and I've owned AWE and Supersprint so I have some reference). What 303 Spartan says is that these downpipes are sub-par because they are Russian. I do not know your definition of racism, but it definitely shows off his ignorance.

    LOL Wow! Any reasonable person would have immediately realized that I was very clearly joking, based on my absurd comment. The fact that you couldn't see it leaves me truly hoping, for the sake of your sanity and the sanity of those around you, that you are not this up tight in real life. Yikes.

    Just purchased these. Will post a review of shipping, quality/craftsmanship, and if I get a cel with spacers. Plan to cerakote ceramic coat them. Probably won't install right away but will definitely post videos for sound purposes.

    Received my pipes today and wanted to post my experience with the seller as well as the craftsmanship.

    I placed the order on the 19th and it shipped on the 20th. It arrived at my house on the 27th from Russia.

    The box was pretty shoddy looking but the actual packaging inside made up for it.

    The welds are absolutely a work of art. Inside and out they're seamless. I've never owned a different pair to compare to so sorry I don't have much more to offer in that regard.

    I plan on spraying cerakote ceramic inside and outside of the pipes. I also don't have any immediate plans on install. Got a few other things I want to install first but I'll post feedback on fitment and sound when I get them on.

    Thank you GID for the review of our pipes. They will fit as well as they look.
    What wrong was with the box? It was packed well enough to get over the World...

    I gotta say... the overall quality look of the pipes and those welds look top notch. If they hold up as well as they look, I would say that this is a bargain of an exhaust part.

    Box looks great there. Not your fault, but it was in bad shape by the time I got it. Either way, pipes are safely in my possession and look great, thanks for the easy and quick transaction.

    Yes, I guessed according to your nickname.
    Stereotypes in the modern world are synonymous with foolishness.
    I am in performance exhaust business for years now and a lot of shit has "Made in USA" label. Most of that "made in USA" actually made in China or in Taiwan. Many Europe manufacturers also make crappy products with crazy prices.
    You even have at US market good portion of downpipes actually made in Russia with "Made in USA" or "Made in Germany" labels. And I can literally say that for now downpipes made in Russia one of the best worldwide. We have three-four manufacturers here and all of them are small custom shops operated by very educated persons.

    At various points I had Supersprint, AWE, Remus & Milltek on my cars. Having first hand experience with those, I chose to make my latest one (which is a custom big single turboback with wastegates plumbed back into 3.5'' downpipe) out of Russian components, albeit a different manufacturer (MPExhaust). Thus I can only agree so much.
