Hey guys, looking to get some advice on a catted downpipe for my VT.

Solo HFC seems to be the cheapest one around but wondering if anyone has this downpipe and has any thoughts on it? Is it restrictive? Any gains number wise compared to other downpipes? Thanks!

A 3" DP will not show as much gains unless paired with exhaust components of equal size. In the case of this lower DP section you'd also need a 3" catback(some are made) a full 3" elbow(none made but can be), and have the turbo outlet bored out larger since it's only 2.57".

In short, if not building the engine and going stuffed turbo, stick to 2.5" or gut the oem DP. Especially if you're trying to save $. You can make 270+ whp on stock turbo and gutted stock DP with other supporting mods and this is not even safe on some 2014 VT.....
