tubular manifolds are nice for bling,but suck when it really heats up. down pipe could be decent just exhaust piping won't make or break your setup as long as the welds are good.

yea i was checking out the welds and they seem fine in pictures, so i think i might venture onto it. would they have a better flow then a log style?

logs are best for durability, because they stand up to heat better. tubular are notorious for cracking especially with some of those overdone designs. remember a turbo is pretty solid with weight, then piping, and wastegate,and it''s under pressure high heat vibration from driving puts a lot of work on a manifolg log #1. ask around or search better yet you ask a lot of questions like that you will get flamed for not searching first.

i have seen that manifold in person (it was on a ls/vtec), it cracked in four different places. the pipes are almost touching, and in these areas where the cracks.
