The first batch of production castings will be in mid March. The rest of the components have been waiting here for months. As for pricing we need to get a better idea of welding time. We are targeting $350-375 range for the direct bolt on downpipe.

The RV6 downpipe will be 3.25" at the turbo which transitions to 3" tubing through a bellmouth casting. The tubing of the downpipe is 3" with a 2.5" reducer which allows for a drop in replacement. The 2.5" reducer can be removed at the Vband and allow you to run our 3" A-pipe. This was mainly done for those that want to maintain a stock exhaust. As well as for certain racing classes that allow you to remove the catalyst but not upgrade your exhaust.

We just picked up our car last week and will start dyno testing soon to test the benefits of going to a 3" exhaust. I got to drive our car tonight with the downpipe and it is noticeably faster without any rasp.

Is your shop car a CVT or 6MT that you are going to dyno?

Cool, are you guys making a catted and non cat version??
We can make a catted version of the downpipe. However from past experience inexpensive high flow cats and turbo cars do not get along. The high flow cats usually melt in a short amount of time, especially if they are located close to the turbo. There are high flow cores that will take the heat but they are in the $300-400 range for just the core. We have had good luck placing a high capacity ceramic converter further down the exhaust for our RDX downpipe.

pre-order pricing likely? any price point you are shooting for w/ the a pipe? and say somebody later gets the 3" a pipe (I assume this is the piece from the DP that runs to behind the crossmember and continues into what is marketed as "aftermarket exhaust"?) what is the final diameter of that? does it step down to ~2.25" at the flange or is a 3" setup from you or a custom flange on another setup required to use your a pipe?
