They will see it as illegal. Come inspection time, swap it out with the OEM cats. I have never been pulled over and had a police officer inspect my exhaust and go underneath my car.would be highly interested, not sure how the laws would see it in texas. any ideas as to how they take it? any one here in tx running this? if its all good, id be looing at jumping on the line wagon
Ive been thinking the same thing. I would love the pipe but its just to expensive at this price. Seems like if they lowered it to $250 then they would sell like crazy.I have been interested in this pipe for a few months and contacted Gadget about another group buy months ago. Since then, I have started thinking. Why does this cost so much money (retail price is 470) ? It is simply two pieces of SS piping that has been bent, joined together at one end, and has attachment points at the other end. My entire catback exhaust (JBA stainless steel) was only 235. It has bends and attachments and includes a muffler. The previous group buy pricing seemed a lot better and more what i would think this should cost. But then again, i am no fabricator.
Hey Gadget, I have already ordered mine and it has been on back order for a while. Is there any way I can add myself to the group buy so these other folks can get their discount? BTW you and Brian have been great in helping me out with all my purchases. I look forward to meeting up with you when I get back. Thanks again.
Our production costs on this very high quality system are very high. We are using very heavy gauge 304 stainless steel piping all hand mandrel bent and hand tig welded.Ive been thinking the same thing. I would love the pipe but its just to expensive at this price.

Yes, absolutely. If we get the 10 including yours on the GB list, we will refund you the difference. No problem there.

The flanges are expensive to make. They are not stamped units like other systems use, they are high quality CNC machined with effort made to smooth the airflow in the transition areas. When you get the Y pipe look very closely at the flanges, expecially the Y collector. These are not commercially avaialbe pieces and are custom made for this application.
Then comes the issue of volume. This is a high quality, but very low volume production item. If we where making them up in huge batches like those big guys turning out low quality units, the cost would be much less. It is all economy of scale. If everyone one of you all here bought one, then the cost would come way down, but as you can see, it looks like there might not even be 10 units sold...
Anyway we hope to start shipping end of this week or early next week. If you all want to do the GB, the time is now. Once we start shipping it is over.
They are apparently not selling like crazy.They sell like crazy at the price they are at....LOL Mine has been on back order since mid March. Thats okay though I wont be home to put it on for another 3 months.
I recieved it on this Tuesday, I ordered it on May 5th through the internet. I did continually call them beginning last week, they kept saying it was going out but it took a while. I had ordered the gaskets and they didn't have them in, so I told them to send it anyway. I was not in on the group buy. They are very nice, I would give them a call. They did say something about only getting in units for 4x4's.when did you recieve yours? I have been waiting on mine for about 3 months now.
