    I am planing on getting a 3'' cat-less down pipe, soon. Money is in hand to be spent on physical gratification. But, I can't decide on which one due to some differences I've seen on them. Mainly the shape of the inlet that meets the head and placement of the flex portion.

    Skunk2

    Full Race
    [​IMG]

    Am I wrong in assuming the fullrace looks as though it is much better fit for the k24z7 exhaust port?
    [​IMG]

    Anyone touched or had both? Any issues with the placement of the flex section of them? Any flow issues due to the rectangular port on the skunk2?

    Edited for spelling owning me

    it looks like a better match for the port, yes.

    Bigger is not always better when it comes to exhaust.

    In the case of the 9th gen Si, 3" has been proven to outperform the smaller options.

    I ran J pipe on a TL that I had a few years ago got it from rv6 and was really impressed with the quality.

    Nobody said that rv6 is not high quality, I've heard nothing but good about them. But, the simple fact is I'm looking At 3" catless and they do not make that.

    Rv6 is 2.5" pipe catted/catless while all other are 3". Do you want want catless or catted? Skunk2 is only available in catless version. If you don't want raspy sound and the smell of fuel then I would recommend catted version. More expensive, but worth it later down the road.

    3" catless is what I want, my concern is that the flange on the skunk2 looks sloppy next to the full race. I was interested if anyone had any info if it mattered.
