We discussed the R32 test pipe again last night, it was not done because the cost to make it would be too high. Perhaps we need to revisit the idea again sometime. Thanks for your input!
The problem is that it goes all the way from the header to the where the exhaust starts, so it is a real big piece (about half of the car).
Just for comparison, the Milltech one is going for about $2200.00...
iirc, the USP test pipe was like 250 bucks or something?
Again, a (proven) test pipe option from you guys around 300-400 bucks would sell. I think when USP originally gauged interest in this forum (what, 2-3 years ago?), not a whole lot of those owners seemed particularly interested in modding their cars to that extent.
Tarmacs cut it close.

Thanks for all the suggestions and interest. We are torn between really wanting to make it for you guys, and not being able to even come close to the mentioned prices. Last I was told, we would need at least 5 paid orders for $899 for catless, and with Magnaflows it would be around $1200.
Welcome Roland. I too would be interested in a test pipe. Not for $800 though, I can get the Milltek test pipe to match my catback for $850. Might end up going that route and getting your test pipe for my mkiv.
Thank you Jon!
Whichever one is the best solution for you, go for it. We do try to get the most performance for the lowest price out of our parts, sometimes it is the cheapest, sometimes it isn't. But we aren't able to compromise quality (or lose money). I look forward to helping you with the mkiv though!!
