or use a slightly skinnier bolt and a nut and remove the stud. Add a few washers and it fits just fine3p141592654 said:Just be warned that the ones on eBay with the misplaced hole also had horribly warped flanges. You will need to have them ground flat as well as die grind out the misplaced hole (and with the hole enlarged the center of the elbow does not line up perfectly with the center of the downpipe (off by about 2 mm).
All downpipes are NOT the same. Those $350 downpipes you see are the ones with the integrated turbo elbow, which you WILL need. The stock turbo elbow is crazy restrictive. You wont get the full effect of a 3" DP and exhaust with the stock shitty elbow. If you are not lookin to make crazy horsepower and are on a budget, an Ebay DP and elbow sounds to be a great deal for the price. Just make sure its 3" ALL THE WAY through the DP, most are copies of the HKS DP which had a bottleneck that narrowed down to 2.5" or so. Hope that helps and goodluck man.supra_fast said:well are all downpipes the same. can i go to ebay and pick up a 75 dollor downpipe and expect the same results out of a 350 dollor downpipe. im going to buy it then put it on a 3" exhust all the way back. im taking out both cats then im going to turn up the psi to 11.5. im also putting in a intake. does anyone have a suggestion on where i should buy one then. i seen one on ebay that is 80 mm witch is 3.2 " give or take. i think it was only 110 bucks.
