No, they won't fit w/ a downpipe.

I had a guy come by once for the install... the stage II wouldn't fit, so I custom built a stage I for him. he was supposed to come back so we could make a jig for it and fit it on another car, but I haven't heard from him since.

I'd need a car with the DP installed, a half day to play with it, and ten paid orders before I'll do another custom piece like that.
like I said, last time I spent all day working on that car, and the guy leaves and I never heard form him again. that's a TON of custom labor I just handed the guy for free.. I'm a nice guy, but I'm not a charity.

Ask ShigSpeed Scott. He builds each bar individually, so he might be able to modify his bar to do what you need.

The stage I piece is the one I built on the customer's car around his 3" DP.. I beefed it up to make it stronger than the regular ones since a STage II couldn't fit at all (not without having less than 2" of ground clearance)..

my regular stage I won't fit around a DP, as it fits just below the engine crossmember and the DP on some of these turbo systems hangs a couple inches below it. )whoever designed them wasn't exactly the brightest, as there's plenty of room to move them up a couple inches and save all kinds of damage possibility).
oh well. not my car. not worried about it.

that not the issue.. the issue is that he hasta have more interest than just one for custom making these arent cheap if only one person want it ... also he need someone who has a 3 inch downpipe to test it on.

in my opinion i think you dont really need a 3 inch downpipe for a turbo on a GA16DE.. i think a 2.5 inch downpipe is plenty and iirc it will clear the 2.5.

you think that'll be enough to get the car up to 200-230whp... or is that too restrictive???
