Just remember you get what you pay for....Personally I would not buy any major component from ebay....

most of the DP's I have seen are made of 304 stainless ( invidia, perrin, hks, the ebay ones) and are TIG welded. if cracking really a problem? what is a good price for a used DP?

304 should work fine considering all the people running 304 headers out there.

my point earlier was they can claim it 304 and tig welded but how will you know? Can you tell what type of stainless it is by looking at it? Also if APS and others sell those items for $600 or $700 and copies on EBAY are selling for $150, dont think there is a reason why???

Valid point, but we can't confirm that it isn't what the ad says it is either. For all we know the eBay piece is awesome and the seller is willing to accept smaller margins than APS etc...

Price is what you pay, value is what you get.

IIRC STI's don't need an up pipe. Looks about the same as the Injen DP I'm using but alot cheaper.
