Brand doesnt matter in my opinion...

In my case i did my own piping, but you choose....keep in mind that the money you have is used in the best manner, i mean buy the better stuff at the better price....

Brand/Costly isnīt equal to Good choice

I assume you are running a zetec. If that is the case. There is no better piping out there than what comes with Toms DIY kit.

If this is your first time id prolly rec getting the piping, honestly i dont think ill buy a prebent system again, just too many things that I would like to change and the fitment isnt quite how Id like it. Its nice to have piping made specifically for your car and how you want it.
