VK Motorwerks Downpipes

Has anyone purchased and installed VK Motorwerks Catless DPs yet? If so, care to give a review? Thanks!

Not sure if we are going to go forward with this project because of the over saturation in the market for down-pipes. I was thinking about liquidating about 50 catless downpipes. If someone wants to put together about 50 people in a group buy I can sell them for $300 a set.

For that price I would be down if they are good (fitment, power gains etc.).

The fitment and performance should be on par with other dp's in the market place.

Vince, if you set up a thread to start a list of people to buy 'em, it would fill up pretty quickly

Vince you should formally set something up because I am positive without a doubt you can get 50 people interested as long as fitment etc. is ok

$300 a set? wow.. I don't know what your margins would be but if you just kept making them for 400-450, you would be in business for a long time..
