Default Downpipe

Is there somwhere I can get a replacement downpipe for my 01 ssei besides dealer?
I have determined my rattle to be comming from there. I seen Hogan sells a 3" one, but I do not think I need that being stock. thanks for any help

you might notice a small decrease in low-end torque, but the biggest difference is price. Ed will get you a much better deal than Hogan could dream of.

if you are using the stock downpipe and want a high-flow cat, you are going to have to get this: http://www.hoganperformance.com/CC1.htm

You will not be able to weld the aftermarket cat to the flange of the downpipe

What was wrong with your original downpipe?

I have a rattling comming from the exhaust and it was determined to be comming from the downpipe. I Can't stand the rattle.

the downpipe is double walled, so it could rattle. My bet would be on the cat also

They were telling me that the downpipe has some kind of welded piece right by the flange like a double wall. When tapping on the exhaust it sure sounds like that is were it is comming from. I'm not really fiamiliar with this, but 2 exhaust shops to me the same thing.
