Neither. AR downpipes are the best.

If you do, I'll paint them gold and sell them for double! Therefore mine will be better.

I have the CP-E DPs and they're great! Either option will work fine, just pick one. However I do like the cast portion that CP-E has and the fact they they are universal to both models for easier selling (i & xi)

VRSF - priced very well $385 was it? good fit and excellent customer service. Tiago is the best! idk why you'd pay more for the same thing.

Hate to break it to you but I don't think those are VRSF downpipes lol. Mine look nothin like the ones your comparing your AR pipes to. Mine look identical to yours actually.

Kia, Lulz is correct. Not sure where you got the pictures from, but that isn't a VRSF pipe sold today!!!!

Chris, I don't like stepping on anyone and I agree AR is a great product, but the VRSF pipes are almost spot on and a fraction of the price with a life time warranty. AR is only for 2 years. PM Tiago@VRSF for price and shipping. I'm running the VRSF's on my car and unless you're going single turbo anytime soon, I wouldn't recommend anything else. One thing I do recommend is have them coated or wrapped. It will cut down on the under hood temps.

Wrong! Those are Raceland downpipes.

The VRSF DPs are much better, similar to ARs.

The first pic below are Racelands vs AA DPs. You can see the quality difference.


Second pic is VRSF DPs vs stock. Notice nice quality and size.

YOU'RE ALL WRONG!!! OP, buy SuperSprint Downpipes.... They're only $3,000 and are guaranteed to give you ~50 WHP/60 WTQ

My opinion is go for the VRSF. They are well made, they do the job, and they are cheaper then any other DP on the market. Ive heard CP-E is also quality, but I believe a bit more expensive. My advice would be go with VRSF and call it a day.

Its Plain and Simple !

CP-E All the way for the following that surpasses the competition
  1. Cast bellmouths
  2. Mandrel bent tubing
  3. TIG welded

= Outstanding Unmatched Quality

I would put money on it that the AR's are better than the CP-E's.
