VSRF Vs. AA DP's

so I am trying to justify the difference between the AA vs. VSRF downpipes.

What are the advantages over the VSRF do the AA have?

I am about to pull the plug on the VSRF ones tonight but need the justification

I don't like to get into it here on the forum but I would recommend the VRSF downpipes and caution against the AA pipes.

VRSF > AA for fitment and price

I've never seen any actual testing of DPs performance. A couple companies like to make claims that theirs are the best, yet have never put out any actual flow or backpressure numbers and just like to talk shit*cough*AR*cough*.

I have the AA DP and fitment was perfect. However, the VRSF pipes have nothing but good reviews and if they were available when I ordered my AAs I would've ordered them instead.

Our downpipes are 304 stainless steel and like all of our exhaust products they come with a serial number, full 2 year warranty and are 100% fitment guaranteed.

They are in stock and ready to ship.

If you have any other questions please pm me .

They are both really good downpipes and of great quality, but the price of the vrsf downpipes just cant be beat. If they were out when I was in the market for downpipes, I would have bought them.

VRSF no question. Cheaper and fit better.

I had no issues whatsoever with my AA downpipes. They fit perfectly. Now if the VRSF downpipes fit perfectly and are 3" I would have bought them BECAUSE of their lower price.

Good call....I am also considering this to be my next purchase. Does anyone know if there is any wait time with VRSF currently?

Nothing wrong with the VRSF but plan on waiting sometime. Some guys ordered in late January and still havn't gotten them. Any new orders would likely be weeks from shipping, unless VRSF wants to chime in? Guys are getting their tracking now in mid-march and all the back orders didnt even go out yet.
Don't forget CP-e its a great pipe and it has a bell mouth inlet and made in the US. Shipped same day from Jeff@TGS.

I have vsrf and love them. I believe they have a LifeTime warranty! Fitment was on spot and you cannot beat the price!

Ordered mine in January, they arrive tomorrow. Didn't mind waiting, not like I need the pipes. In fact if the price wasn't so good I
Probably wouldn't have ordered downpipes at all. When they get here they get here..
