The ebay one should work just fine. If it is a "turboback," it should include the downpipe and testpipe. Double check exactly what your buying and what it includes. If it's just a catback (from the catalitic converter back) the other exhaust pieces from Megan should fit.

We all made a huge investment when we bought our Evos, the Evolution is not a cheap car.
so why put cheap ebay stuff on it?
I'm not trying to offend anyone thats just my opinion.

Here's the link:

It looks like a full turboback but should i change the dp and tp to a better one or just leave it as it is? Should I just wait and get the Megan SS 3" turboback from blouch for 550? Is it possible to get the greddy or hks titanium muffler only and add different piping? I'd ratha get greddy or hks muffler look and add whatever piping from megan, ams or buschur. Let me know!

Yangs, first of all, please stop typing like a child. You are required to type normally with words spelled out completely, as well as proper grammar, sentence structure, spelling, etc. No, this is not English class, but the way you are typing is awful.

A turboback is a turboback...it includes the downpipe and test pipe. It makes no sense to buy a turbo back then buy the same parts again and swap them. Also, the Megan parts are identical to the Ebay parts. All those brands (Helix, Megan, Authority, SS Autochrome) are made in China in the same factory. The only difference between the Ebay TBE and Megan TBE is the fact that the Ebay test pipe is a true test pipe while the Megan has a resonated test pipe with a smaller inner diameter. They're all cheap Chinese exhausts made by underpaid children. However, they work fine - not the best, but definitely fine. I had a Megan TBE on my car for a year and had no problems while going pretty fast at the track.

The Megan TBE seems to have more positive feedback and since you've used it and experienced its results. I'd rather go with something people have had experience with then something unknown. I will probably wait it out and research more on the internet. For now, Megan TBE is the choice since I have more experience seeing people with it and hearing about it. My brother has a megan catback for his sr20ve b13. Ma buddy has a megan header and catback also he just installed the other day. What comes around goes around.

ebay turbo backs are known to have fitting problems, but good luck with it.

Funny thing, I bought the same exact kit an put it on last weekend. Warrtalon is right, a tbe is a tbe! The kit works great and sounds good! The only problem is that the dp comes close to the oil pan and tranny case... nothing that Muffler Masters her in the Springs couldn't fix. I picked up the kit for only $250, less than $300 w shipping!

I am used to buying non-brand exhaust parts and them doing just fine. Before the EVO I was a Mustang guy and never bought into the SLP or Magna Folw crowd. I bought Mac parts all day long... Btw the Stang made over 500rwhp! So, I guess what I am saying is $250 is worth the experiment.
