I have pupes h pipe and have 0 problems with it. It was $194 so you are saving money. Because brand new like you said is $200 so if you get anything other than pypes brand new its gonna be $250ish maybe more. I say chance it. It's not like there is a whole bunch of pieces to the x pipe so fit should be fine.
A lot of problems comes from cat backs they have more connecting pieces.
