Downpipes finally arrived!!
« on: April 08, 2021, 08:21:44 AM »
So these got dropped off last night and finally got to check them out.. Ill just say they look very well made but one of the downpipes is a 2 piece design using a slip joint. Did PPE change their design of the pipe?  open book images hd

After a quick search it seems like they have been making them that way for a while now.. Anyone running these have any issues with leaks? Would it be worth it to have a exhaust shop weld them together?

Interesting that they are two pieces now. A slip joint shouldn't be an issue if they are properly clamped. I would say the majority of aftermarket exhausts are done this way. There are a people who prefer to have it welded. I can't think of any particular reason why welding them would cause any issues and ideally would create a solid seal.

Two pieces save on shipping by cutting the box dimension in half. No leaks on mine.  :)
