got a leaky downpipe so figured i might treat myself to just getting a new one, currently have a mongoose system so will either these serve as a direct replacement?

I would personally choose hks over japspeed.
Japspeed make shit manifolds..
My guess is the hks one is mild steel.
So depends on if you want s/s or mild steel.
The hks one says it deletes the catalytic convertor too.
Thats news to me. I would of thought they were both the same length. ???

Does it make much difference? I fitted a turbo elbow thinking it was going to be quicker but noticed nothing but i have a standard downpipe

get the goose repaired, if it flexi section it easy cheap repair, with money saved buy one of bogdans elbows, sure nomad had a thread with repair section links/prices . HKS price not bad if they had them, it just a alu-steel 2.5" pipe & runs up to cat for R model I believe

You can get longer flexi's so it would give the chance to cut it back past the rusty section they can be had as weld on or bolt on mate ...

if you send it down to me il weld you a new flexi in and polish up the whole pipe for you so comes back as new.

I have 2 extended flexi pipes in stock so all you need to do is send the old one down
even with delivery both ways will still be cheaper than buying a new one

A universal flexi should be able to be welded on in situ. I had one done once when a leaking water pipe at back of engine was dripping on it, causing it to fall. The HKS down pipes are standard diameter 2 1/4" I think so stick with your goose!

I always prefer to take it off to weld as its easier to get all the way round with one weld .... as its limited space with the gun as you reach the top ....

I'm sure you're right it's best done off the car. Mine was done back in the day by Ollie in Heywards Heath who is a total top bloke & R guru. It never let me down for 4 plus years!

It can be more time consuming but a better result off the car IMO. I know my exhaust was welded on the car because I couldn't get it out without removing the sub frame duh
