Should I get downpipes?

Looking for some advice from you guys.

Running the Cobb & bms dci

Many ppl have suggested downpipes, does it make a gratifying difference?

Thanks peeps

Running downpipes for more then two years will most likely throw CEL codes
there is a group of people on an other website working on a solution for this
it can't be linked here so just google it. That being said downpipes sound beast..!!! and you do get a bump in whp

Are downpipes necessary when it comes to reliability and longevity of a tuned engine? I am tuned with a fmic and running 17 psi. I am happy wiht the power and will not be modding from this point on for power, but if it is a mod that will keep the engine in better shape I will definitely do it, which is why I plan on getting a charge pipe soon. Is downpipes just for performance, am I safe keeping my stock pipes in with my tune?

It takes away a lot of back pressure on these tiny turbos we have,
So if you plan on keeping your car for a while and running a tune it is good to help prolong the life of the stock turbos.
As a bonus you get better performance and spool.
It's a win win scenario.
