I bought that same exact y-pipe for my 83 brat. I have nothing but GOOD reviews. the material quality was fantastic. smooth. kink-free bends. thick tube. great fit-up. great flow. the sound was smooth but "ballsy". not wimpy and neutered like a moped or Segway <spell?> and not irritating or crude like a Harley. just right, like goldilocks pudding.
I HIGHLY recommend the part. I ended up swapping my ea81 for an ej18. so I have 4 exhaust ports, and had to dump that unit.
so I ordered the CLEARLY ILLUSTRATED ej version of the identical part, from ebay. waited foooorever, like 14 days. then it gets here, and its a box about 14"x8". right away its obviously the wrong part. I mean, duhhhhh...... derp de derp....
so I call and call.... got a bunch of runaround, and then a bunch of excuses....
"that part doesn't even EXIST!!".
okay, well then apparently someone took a lot of time out of their day, to DRAW up a clear and detailed graphic of a part that doesn't exist, and then used it in your ebay ad, to sell a completely different part, even though your ad ALSO clearly said "inlets:2 outlets:1" and the part you sent me was just a converter that fit in the palm of my hand, and has 1 in, and 1 out. either that, or im SO dumb, that I cant look at a converter in my hand and count the tubes coming in and out of it. id hafta be pretty fudging dumb. like, cant tie my own shoes, kinda dumb.
and, just for y'all, as a warning, this wasn't some tiny ebay nobody, this was SUMMITRACINGS ebay store. who sells hundreds of items every day on ebay alone.
so, I handled all that, got my money back. chewed them out until THEY paid my return postage. damned if IM gonna pay the 15 bucks to rectify THEIR stupidity.
now, months later, im still sitting here with no exhaust, and wondering. if there is a Magnaflow graphic illustration of a specific ej22 y-pipe/cat conv, then that part must exist? or at least, it existed at some point in time, like the late 90s?
and p.s. sube101 makes GREAT stuff. he is a helluva fabricator. I cant claim any personal experience with his exhaust work. but he made me a very nice lift kit. it all fit up, strong, solid, clean, sharp, and very nice Tig beads. most people don't use tig. its not "necessary". but tig is very nice. and looks much prettier. it takes more time and practice and patience, tho. most people just mig. mig is just fine. but tig is better.
if anyone knows where to get the ej22 y-pipe, id pay for it. its the last piece if my puzzle, to get my baby back on the road and the trail.
