Which test pipes?

Hey guys I'm thinking of cutting out my cats and putting in test pipes but I'm not sure which set up to go. Macht Schnell track bypass or Turner test pipes? Hopefully some of you guys with either set up can chime in

I have the Macht Schnell and couldn't be happier.

I see you're in SoCal, you can pick them up locally at EAS. Maybe do some dyno runs too

Ya that's defiantly an option just seeing if the gains differ on either

I just got my Turner pipes in the mail last week. Hoping to find time to install them over the holidays. I haven't seen the Macht Schnell in person, but they look pretty much the same as the Turners in pictures i've seen. Not sure why they are almost $100 more. Basically all it came down to for me was price, free shipping from Turner as well, seemed a no-brainer. Now if i could just find a Dyno less than 3 hours away from me....

Turners, 100 dollars cheaper and talk to Jon. You won't regret the customer service.

Looked at my receipt again, I actually did not get free shipping, it was $16.50. But i did get $25 off for being a forum member. Just contact Turner prior to ordering to see if it's still available. Sorry for any confusion.

Which ever ones delete the primary cats & are cheap. If you spend big money, it makes more sense getting a legit X-Pipe

Thank you.

People do think there will be and it is important to appreciate there won't be.
