rear cat delete pipes where to purchase ?

I'm slowly gathering bits for an exhaust makeover on my 2002 S. Recently scored a used set of headers/front 200 cell cats and a Dansk banana sport muffler. So now I need the rear cat delete pipes. I'm aware of Fabspeed and Che ? are these the two main players ? Based on a forum search it appears the Che are less expensive but currently not available ? Anyone have a used set they want to unload ?

I found a lightly used set of Fabspeed bypass pipes on the RennTech.org forum a number of years ago. Not sure how many are floating around these days, but mine were a good deal back then.

Good luck with your search and conversion.

I would just wait until the ones from Che(TopSpeed) are back in stock. I thought I saw that they will be available in May? They are a good value, I have mine installed with their exhaust. Try giving them a call. I think they are closed on Saturdays. Here is their contact info:

I have had mine on order from Topspeed since the beginning of March. I checked with TopSpeed at the beginnng of April and they told me they were expecting a shipment around April 20th. I hope so but ya never know. If you pay in advance it will get you in line to receive, there is a waiting list and the shipment seems to be for a limited amount. You may want to get in line now. Good luck

Fabspeed checking in. Sweet pipes. Two bungs on each to plug, and need to weld a short extension onto those elbows. But great looking and fat. Got pics if wanted.

Quick note, I wouldn't use the bolts from che, maybe it is just me but 4 of the 6 broke within 6 months. I replaced them with some stainless steel ones from Ace... the helpful place.

The Fabspeed in my opinion are way over priced for what these are. Even the Topspeed at 200.00 is a lot for what these are. What are we talking 30 " of pipe and a flange ?
