    I'm pretty sure yours will be a sleeve fitting, look under your car at where the back box and the pipe connect, if there is two plates clamped together with two bolts its a flange, if one pipe simply slips over the other its a sleeve

    The remus and Irmy backbox are not loud, it just makes a nice difference in tone

    so am i right in saying the remus centre pipe is a flange fitting type?
    if it is and mine is a sleeve, how would i get it to fit or do they do the same but sleeve type?
    cheers

    well if youve got a sleeve fitting and can only get a pipe in flange then modify it to fit onto ur sleeve backbox....

    BUT

    if u wanna change ur backbox at the same time then the fitting is irrelevant. Buy the centre pipe (with flange) and buy a new backbox with std flange fitting. Jobs a good un!

    LMF sell a adaptor

    ''PLEASE NOTE: Later vehicles (2002 onwards) may have a sleeve-type fitting onto the centre pipe, rather than the earlier flange & gasket type. If your vehicle has the sleeve-type fitting, you will also need to order an adaptor. ''
