Of those, the only one I'd install is the downpipe. I was unaware that SRS even made a header for our cars.
Pre-turbo exhaust you really don't want to cheap out on. Many aftermarket headers are known for breaking (this is where what the other person told you comes into play), so if the $700 ones do it I would fully expect an even cheaper knock off one to be even more likely to fail. Also, up-pipe fitment and construction really do matter. If a weld cracks you will have a leak. A pre-turbo leak can be a bit hazardous. Good up-pipes are already cheap to begin with, and they are hell to install so it really is a good idea to go it right the 1st time so you don't ever have to do it again.

So you are suggesting that I get rid of the headers?
The up pipe is not flex fit style if that matters
What are the benifits of an aftermarket up pipe?
