Hey, i just put my Rx on the road today, it is so sweet, well , the exhaust is a bit noisy but oh well, anyway, my mechanic told me that i need to replace my downpipe, i mean i passed inspection, but still, she has like no torque at all in lower rpm ranges, so, hm... everthing from the presilncer back is Brand New, so that ain't it, and he said the downpipe needs to be replaced, so here i am, looking for a DIRECTFIT doenwpipe,



Racing beat sells one, but they say i need theyre presilencer to go with it, or it wont fit, but i don't really need that



suggestions ??



Oh yeah, it a 90 GXL ( S5 NA)



Thanks in advance

I thought the N/A's had headers. Downpipes are for turbo's. Get yourself the Racing Beat Headers. Don't get the pacesetters, there are bad reviews of them floating around.

You'll need both parts in that picture. The downpipe AND the presilencer. Also, those parts replace everything between your factory exhaust manifold and the Y-pipe
