I'd go with the riss racing pipes for the plain simple reason that I've heard of them before and that would be good say if something messed up your car.

I'd go with UR - same gain, better price, and - guess what - they really exist.

PS: Get them thermal coated.

UR is a pretty well known company in the S2K world. They have a real shop, and fab up turbo kits/exhausts for a lot of different cars.

It depends. If I wanted catted downpipes than UR would be my choice (well, my only option at this point), but if I wanted catless downpipes than I would probably go with Riss pipes since I like their design better, but at the same time it seems like there will be absolutely no room to cram them into the car for the install so that's another thing to consider if you are a DIY kind of person. I really don't think that you can go wrong with either of them.

Shrug you know what you should go with Riss. While you're at it send me some money too. My paypal actually works. I promise my downpipes are almost done and they will ship out any day now!

yea UR's welds look pretty good and the product is actually done. They're good with responding too. On top of it there's a group buy going on for the UR's not sure if its for catted or not.

I just ordered the UR. I can't speak to the product until I have it installed, but I had the UR turbo kit for my s2000 and the quality of the fabricated parts was very good. Customer service was good too when I fragged a turbo (my bad).
