Any recommendations on a Charlotte area shop to fab a downpipe/midpipe? I'm running the original old school RPS 3" setup with recirculated wastegate and am looking to basically have the exact same thing replicated in 3.5" piping. Any idea on what the general price range for something like that may be?

Any input would be greatly appreciated! :bigthumb:

not sure if 3sx has a fab guy working there, can either try underground ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$) or post on honda-tech fab section to find a local fab guy to do it.

Fairly certain 3SX would just sub out and then put their premium on top of it -- never seen them do any real in-house fab work. I'm not even going to try UGR...

I know all of the guys at 3SX and have had work done there in the past. They don't do that type of fabrication in-house, though.

Will do - might be kind of tough for me to get down there this week unless they're open past 5pm, though. Work's always getting in the way of shit! :freak:

Send me your cell # again when you get a chance.

YES STAY AWAY from Draco performance! I am a former employee and highly recommend NOT going there. What all is done to your supra and what kind of engine management are you running?

aem v2, s372, 4 down and midpipe. with all supporting mods like intake, intercooler, clutch and etc...


You're probably better off flying in one of the known tuners. I think I read that John Reed is at UGR pretty regularly; you might get lucky and be able to book him while he's in town.

Yea if u want the best tune and the most out of your setup, you will be best trying to have John Reed or one of the other mobile Supra tuners come and do it for you.
