Happened to order this pipe and another brand pipe at the same time and the GrimmSpeed pipe is 10x nicer and is a very quality piece over the competition. Nicely done GrimmSpeed crew!
Removing the stock up pipe was a booger, and this GrimmSpeed up pipe slid right in easily. Had to loosen engine mounts and jack up the engine a little to get the stock part out. It wasn’t as scary as it sounded. It took a little more time than anticipated but not much.
Best up pipe
This is the best product for my 07 Legasy GT fits perfectly and works grate with CNT EL headers. I am very satisfy with GrimmSpeed quality. I head before eBay cheap $40 up pipe and I head to modify to make good fitment spend a lot of time. But this one is nothing to do just bolts on even with aftermarket headers.
Up Pipe for 2.5 Liter Turbo Engine
Excellent build quality and premium materials were used. Fitment was spot on with no need to tweak parts to achieve alignment. Only suggestion would be to offer a version with the Exhaust Gas Temperature bung installed; for OEM replacement installations.
Easier than I thought
Looks great performs well. Instructions could be a bit better ,but overall not to bad . Worth the investment
3 Bolt Uppipe
Quality of the build is amazing, this is the second I have purchased (I have 2 Subaru). Badging, welds and finish is all top notch, have no complaints in anyway.
you customer service is also fantastic. Much appreciated!
I thought the invidia up pipe
I put on my 05 legacy gt 40k ago was good. The minimal flange and the weld flange to pipe were insufficient. Had I seen this pipe next to the invidia I would have bought this one then. The flex, much bigger flange and clearly better welding makes this pipe 10 times better than invidia. Thanks GrimmSpeed I'll be looking at your parts first from now on!
This Up-Pipe is absolutly beautiful!! 5 out of 5! The turbo spools up so much faster, a little bit louder when followed with a turbo back system. I strongly recomend taking the turbo out and doing the install from the top and changing the Up-Pipe from there instead of removing the Exhaust Manifolds sense you have to remove the 5 bolts holding the turbo on, you might aswell save the trouble of taking the Exhaust Manifolds out. Once the Turbo is removed, simply undo the bolts on the bottom of the stock Up-Pipe, take the Up-Pipe out from the top and put the Grimmspeed one in. Installation took about 4 hours and a few beers.
very super great
Grimmspeed nailed it on the head with this wicked up pipe!
exactly what I hoped it would be
Grimmspeed nailed it. This up pipe looked amazing when I took it out of the box. Then after following their youtube video (you want to do all the little tips they tell you!) it made my car drive amazing too!
Very Well Made Item
I installed this on my 1994 WRX Sti ej20g motor and it fit perfectly...the design and finish of the part are superior to the original and the included gaskets are substantially thicker as well. Grimmspeed definitely does a great job with their products and craftsmanship. I got the option for ceramic coating and it was worth every penny in my opinion.
First off, the package came very well padded on the inside - the part arrived with the ceramic coating flawless.
Next, the installation - everyone talks about how horrible it is to do the installation of an up pipe. It wasn't bad, it would've been about 4.5 hours if the rear downpipe bolt hadn't been horribly siezed in the mount, requiring some creativity to get loose. I did pull the passenger side manifold and the crossover tube at that side, and then jacked up the motor slightly, and the OE up pipe came out easily. Installation was really straightforward - the only note is that the new manifold to up-pipe bolts have a 17mm head on them, and the nut on the other side is only 14mm. When you install the upper bolt that passes near the front O2 sensor, make sure you put the head of the bolt AWAY from the O2 sensor or you won't be able to get the sensor installed!
Aside from that, fitment was great, the studs and nuts are high quality, and I'm looking forward to the slightly quicker spool!
Awesome up pipe looks great ! Welds look good . Flanges look great
