Funny you bring this up. I had trouble with my y pipe, the bellow blew out, it was a high performance bellow, the stainless mesh kind. I was trying to get ready for a dyno event so i ordered two y-pipes. One was the PPE stainless with high flow bellows the other was the Sinister y-pipe. The PPE came in first so that's the one I went with. The Sinister came in yesterday, I haven't even opened it yet. I talked to a couple of my customers and they said they liked it a lot and spool was faster then the stock pipe. After I do some track time on Thursday I plan on switching to the Sinister pipe to try it. I was planning to do a review on both pipes, the PPE pipe was a pain to line up, very stiff, so not much movement.

Sinister Y-Pipe

Looks like that guy had some install issues. They sure look nice...collector area looks much better than stock from what I can tell I the pic...I'd like it if tbe 2 pipes ran a little bit more parralell before they met at the collector, seem recent enough.

Do they make em for steed speeds? I didn't see anything on their site about it.

Instead of starting new thread I will just post on here, hope the OP doesn't mind.

First on all I'm not a big fan of Sinister, and have ordered their limited edition powermax to get a look at it. It was not a ball bearing turbo that they claimed, and have also tried their other products in the past with disappointing results.

With that said I installed their y-pipe and it was a nice piece on equipment, welds very nice, the way the pipes go into collector also nice. The collector opening is smaller then the orginal size of opening which matches the turbo perfectly. I didn't modify the y-pipe at all just installed and tried it. Well here's my impression of the way it work, very nice, sounded better at idle and there was a noticeable quicker spool, and throttle response. I'm happy with it so far, I would buy one if I was looking to get better performance over the stock pipe for sure. The pipe is all stainless and has a slip pipe expansion joint, very nice piece, will keep updated on the long term but looks promising.
