ordered obx XI dps

so i wanted my car louder but wanted to keep it low key as much as possible , i was searching around the classifieds for a used pair of dps and couldent come up with any. Then one day bored at work i was on ebay i saw these obx dps for only 180 SHIPPED and rite away i ordered . I know its made by chop stix overseas but a simple pipe with minimal bends couldent be so bad ! ... Then i used the search button and found a thread about these and by the looks of it some people have accomplised installing these CHEAP PIPES into there cars no problem . What i was wondering if there are any other members that can chime into this topic too inform me more about the dps... we know its you get what u pay for bs etc i understand iv been modding since i got my license but never had problems with cheap exhaust parts maybe because i was a previous mechanic for Audi and Vw, but anyways just looking for some inputs

what does being a mechanic have to do with you buying chinese parts and using them on your car? some work, some dont. since you live in Boston, i wouldnt be surprised if those dps became rusty and worthless after a couple of winters.

If they fit than they will work and sound as good as any..... Maybe not last as long if made of shitty material, but I'm gonna guess that won't be a issue.
I haven't read anything about expensive or cheap dp's falling apart or breaking.
I have Riss racing dp's...... Read alot of bad reviews and read to stay away from them.......I paid $275 they fit perfect no rattle and sound great. So of they fit they will work..... Sounds like you got a good deal
And mine r a year old and still look great.

Racist? nope. No black, jew, asian jokes so far...

But seriously. Cheap chinese parts are notorious for crappy quality and bad fitment. No racism here, that's just a known fact.

i would have to agree with what someone said earlier. they may fit which is a toss up, but if they do fit they will probably get rusty in bad weather.

OP, how about an update? Even if you have not installed them yet when you get them some good pics of build quality would be nice.
