DO NOT BUY ultimate racing downpipes

If you live in an area that gets snow DO NOT BUY UR DOWNPIPES. After ONE winter, this is what mine look like. They are tricky: on their website they don't mention that they use mild steel for the flanges/bungs.... but that is the material and it is horrible.

They told me in an email that this is just "surface rust" and that I'm fine... I am ordering AR downpipes shortly and will never deal with UR again.

Wow JP - those look pretty bad. Are downpipes easily DIYable with a lift?

We did my downpipes in the garage with the car on ramps! With a lift it would be much easier

When I first worked with them on my catback exhaust fitment back in late 2007..they were very helpful. Give them a chance to come around.
