    Changing Downpipe, Flexipipe and Meow

    I can get the part but is it easy to fit?

    Its all one part going from the Manifold to the flexipipe inc the cat.

    Any body done this them selves?

    Do I need a 4 post ramp?

    Piece of piss. No need for ramp. Just a jack and stands to be on safe side. . . . I've got a stainless front pipe with sports cat if ur interested. Paid 230 and was on car for 6 months. Just need to weld new flange to fit relevant manifold. As was made for 8v. Pm if interested. Only want a ton for it.

    Only 2 bolts cos the other end is a sleeve fitting where it meets the centre pipe.

    Under the car? Is that not the silencer? The MK4's cat is on the downpipe 'bit' as far as I was aware?

    Depends on the year, X series engines had it underneath, Z series had it on the downpipe, im pretty sure anyway.

    Yeah Will, it'll have a u clamp but i presumed u knew that.

    2 bolts on the flange where it meets the mani and 2 nuts on the u clamp.

    X18XE1 models only that is . . . Unless ur fittin an earlier system to a Z18 model etc
