Also Im not looking to purchase the kit any time soon Im probably looking to purchase in about a year or so. So that gives me more time to decide on which route I want to go
yes and no for ht emotor build...you can get deals on things ppl bought brand new and never opened and decide to sell and if you build yourself you save lots of dough. i think fo ry engine build i spent bout 2 grand. and my kit with everything all included was 3 grand.

Looks like the Top Speed kit comes with a mild steel DP, were as the FS Werks comes with a SS DP. Not sure what your use for the car is, but there is no way in hell I'd ever put a mild steel exhaust component on my car.

We sell stainless downpipes as well. For most people down south coated mild steel is fine.
