      If you charged $275-$300 with a cat and O2 bungs welded in (High flow cats are like $60, bungs are about $2), I think you'd have people swarming to you. But for $250, you can go to ebay and buy two catless downpipes. There are also not many people running anything with a t3 flange, so that kind of limits your market. I mean no offense by this post, so please don't take any.

      Also in Harrisburg, so sub'd for interest.

      Wow, all the pie cuts, welding, and grinding is pretty insane considering you can spend $40 for a 180 degree 304 stainless U-bend..........not to mention it's about 10x better. You only need one U-bend to make a MKV downpipe.
      http://www.mandrel-bends.com/catalog...-bend-553.html


      Made that 5 years ago and haven't touched it since I put it on the car, Kinda wish it would break (not really) cuz now I have a TIG

      BTW, you should be using 308 stainless wire and argon if you are MIG welding 304 stainless tubing. Looking at the oxidation around the welds it looks like you're using mild steel filler and co2

      Why buy this over the ebay pipe?

      Before making a 'feeler' in the classifieds section, you might want to keep threads like this in a regional forum, so you dont scare away everyone with your potato welds before you actually get a prototype for what you're selling.

      Why even mention this? There needs to be moderation in this area. Too many people coming on peoples sale threads and dumping on what they have to sell. Let the buyers decide whether or not it's worth it.

      This is a feeler, asking for opinions and personal preference, not a for sale thread. OP said 'would you be interested?'

      No, looks like ass. Welds look like crap, try tig welding instead, mig looks like someone made it in a junk yard with all the cuts put together, the idea of an exhaust it so have it free flowing and with all the cuts you have and with the welds penetrating though, not impressive at all. everyone on here wants a clean and professional product. Yours sir, is not

      Worse than ebay downpipes at twice the price.

      Rethink your product or your price OP, neither look good.

      its called trying to support your family and the down pipes that i make may not look the best but u dont drive ur car upside down u can see them and they still add power just like the 500 down pipes i dont like to buy new parts i think they are way over price and if i had a tig welder i would be using it instead
