    Talking Blue flame Or Pipewerx!

    So planning on getting a Blueflame cat back exhaust system at the beginning of next year but along with it i was also planning on getting a 3" downpipe and de-cat but cant decide on wether to get the blueflame set up or the pipewerx set up.
    Had a talk to s3paul the other day ans said the fitting of the pipewerx was ****e, he had to get it chopped and re-welded to fit correctly, anyone else vouch for the fitting and also the quality of both items.
    Lastly im slightly swaying towards the blueflame setup after finding this bargain price:

    Its the fourth one down.

    i fitted my pipewerx myself didnt have to cut or modifiy anything, the pipewrex welds are really good as well top quality part although ive never seen a blueflame so cant comment on theres, one thing to consider though is that if you go for the de-cat version you will need a cat for MOT's and the std one will not fit the downpipe, i went for the sport cat and you really can see all the way through it there is now restriction there at all so id go sports cat with whom ever you buy from

    yeah my cat does sit low but i think its been designed to sit abit lower as it does get hot and the propshaft is just above it, its a pain over speed bumps as its to low for them really but when your under the car looking up at the system theres not alot of room for it to go any higher

    This seems like a great price for the Blueflame. Does it not seem a bit too cheap to anyone else??

    Pipewerx use blueflame boxes and Ian who runs piperwerx was the top development guy for Blueflame before setting up on his own. So go to pipewerx!

    +1, though I thought Pipewerx used their own boxes for the system. Ian definitely developed the downpipe himself and the Blueflame one is similar to his, if not identical!!

    Talking to Pipewerx the other day he mentioned that he'd not had a single complaint from all the downpipes they had sold, so best to contact him if there were issues.
    Personally all the kit I've had from him has been spot on and you can't fault his technical knowledge - have you seen his twin engined Caddy??!!! (btw I'm not related to Ian or on Pipewerx commision!!)
