downpipe options

hi there
there must be a few people out tere running this type of manifold-
92-01 PRELUDE H22 H22a VTEC 2.2 T25 CAST TURBO MANIFOLD on eBay (end time 08-Feb-11 10:34:17 GMT)
along with a turbo with the standard 5 bolt downpipe fitting. anyway my question is this- is there any downpipes ready made that would atleast be a good starting point.
i really want to keep my set up the way it is, with this cast manifold because for the low boost im running i cant justify splashing out on spoolinperformance manifold, also i want to keep my power steering and ac, plus all the intercooler pipes are built the way i want and also i put a little adhesive on the pipes so no more boost pipe leaks.
so my problem is the space is so tight to get a pipe going down to the underside of the car to the rest of the exhaust. so does anybody know of any exhaust product that has a really tight 90 degree bend that i might be able to use. also how tight can custom exhausts be bent and welded? ive never had custom exhausts for a custom set up, only straight forward like for like ones made.
i have a feeling im not gonna get many helpful replies, but i thought id ask as i have a few spare minutes tonight.

cheers guys (and girls)

Re: downpipe options

I just ordered this manifold, and by what ive seen the fit is real tight. I work at a shop so i have access to chop saws, welders, pipe benders, etc so i can build my own downpipe. im going through exactly what your going through, i couldn't find any good pics of this manifold on 5th gens. I will be making a thread on my build with pics so u can get an idea how it goes.

Not even just for power, but this is basically your ONLY option if you go with that manifold.
The only way you can buy a perfect fitting downpipe is buying it as a package with the manifold from the fabricator like spoolinperformance, lovefab, etc.
But buying an ebay manifold, a custom DP is your only option.
