Default eBay sub-$100 test pipe?

Is there a major difference between the $80ish eBay test pipes vs a $250 APR test pipe? It's just a straight pipe so I couldn't imagine any R&D differences, but are they major fitment/quality issues with the eBay ones? I would rather not dish out another $170 if its really not necessary...

I had an ebay pipe. Not sure which one but the knock offs are usually the same. Fit and finish was great.

Ive bought 2 off ebay for Audi / VW cars. Both great. Do npt waste your money on the overpriced ones.

be sure to get the gaskets too if it doesn't come with one. for that you may have to go with one of the big name vendors.

Stock dealer gasket will work as well if one was not included. Mine have both been included in my purchases.
