It depends on many factors, including price, gains, weight, sound, etc. Check out the intake/exhaust section here and read what people have to say about theirs.

What are you looking for? There are some really expensive ones out there and some that you can find really cheap. It all depends on what you want.

Basically, it comes down to resonated and non-resonated. Non-resonated are much cheaper but can have a bit of rasp to them at times. Personally, I like the way they make the exhaust a little bit louder and that's what I'm going with.

IU put my $50 ebay test pipes on last night - they look really nice and the fitment was pretty good.

i would buy the helix ones. i had the topspeed ones from ebay and although the fittment was perfect and they looked great they made a raspy sound at high rpm. now my friend has them and it sounds the same on his car. :banghead:

I've heard people reporting gains in fuel efficiency with test pipes.  Anyone seeing this?

Not too sure about it but I have heard this before. One thing you will notice though is the smell of unburnt gas with the new pipes.
