    Scorpion Backbox Fitting?

    Hey all I got my Scorpion backbox from LMF finally today and I was wondering is it sumthing I can fit myself or best to take to a garage baring in mind I honestly haven't got a clue although my mate is quite confident.

    Does or will it require any welding to fit the back box or is it a case of undoing a couple of bolts where I can see the existing exhaust is fitted??

    and do i need to do any preparations to new exhaust or just stick it on so to speak.

    Regards

    Glacious

    Be nice if there was a guide some where with lots of pictures lol

    I have a Scorpion box on my mk3. To be honest it's not a great fit. I had to weld on a reducer as the bore on the back bock was much bigger.. then I had to put metal hose clamps round the rubbers because it hung quite low and on the piss. It's seems ok now apart from the centre box rattling, but when I get round to it I'll bend the pipe.

    I know the box I got wasn't designed to fit the mk3, and it had already been modified to fit a GSi. I don't know if the one you have will fit any better on the mk4 or not.
