    There are a lot of good ones out there. I personally prefer invidia products you might check out kronos Kronos Performance, Fueling the Car Lover Within It is a terribly tough job to replace a up pipe. Depends how experienced you are, but it can be done just take some time. It would be easiest to do with a lift. I'm gonna do my down pipe and up pipe when I get my clutched replaced. Cuz then I'll have access to a lift.

    I would also recommend Invidia, however Grimmspeed makes a really great one too. Grimmspeed has a flex joint in theirs which vastly improves the life expectancy of the uppipe. That is what I am running on my car.

    Here is a how too on most the mods you will probably be questioning right off the bat.

    For cheap, stock STi uppipe. OEM fit.
    Even my dealer installed uppipe developed a leak. Then again... they broke 4/7 heatshield bolts w/o telling me.
