It really comes down to if you are doing or having a shop do it. I had a custom downpipe done for my car, but it's the 4 cylinder and I'm not sure what the bends look like on the V6. I had a full 3" custom exhaust all done at the same time, but when I broke down the cost it came to about $500 for the downpipe including the cat. If you are doing it yourself then the costs is just materials which would be pretty easy to figure out.

Unfortunately I do not have access to the materials to build a downpipe, as well as the know-how. That is why I was trying to get ideas on how to come across a custom one. With that being said, trying to find a 3" downpipe for a 2.8t is near impossible for that price range with a cat of course. Maptune has them for about $1000.

I have a v6 lined up to prototype one on, just waiting to get caught up on the 4cyl downpipe production right now.

Please do this. I would say this is one of the most looked for parts for the 9-3 2.8t. No one make them full 3" without a cat. I don't care if I throw codes or not. This could put me over 300whp to the wheels and shut up everyone that talks smack about Saabs.

Please do this!

Any idea?

Any idea when you might get around to prototyping a v6 downpipe? How far are you on the 4 banger and how long does full production take?
