After seeing Seoul4Koreas's post of his 1jz cam gear cover from aliexpress, decided to check it out. They have a divorced downpipe on there, Just wondering if any one used one like it or something similar that ive seen on ebay years ago.

I had that one along time ago, it sounded like it had a large exhaust leak while it was running all the time but it did sound nice when it hit boost. I would stay away from the open style and get the closed recirculated style if you are in the market for a downpipe. On a side note, I have also had the ebay downpipe that connects to the factory turbo elbow along time ago and that fitment was so bad I had to modify 2 of the 3 bolt holes for it to fit.

Thanks for the input, I like the divorced for the idea of hearing the wastegate open, other then that id just get recirculated. I had the ebay style DP from driftmotion on my first turbo car. I bought this supra with what looks like a home made DP. They did a good job but its literally one pipe all the way back to the muffler, I like being able to separate it in two if i had too. Always like shopping around and see whats out there though.
