    Ordered it. Will my mechanic pal know what I'm on about when I tell him to fit a spacer?

    P.s my ibiza came with a bolt in cage previously fitted to badger5's car what's the story with these. Is it worth much?

    Cheers

    I've just ordered one of these downpipe kits from eBay... spacing it out seems like a sensible idea!

    To help some people out...

    I have a ToyoSport decat, which is the exact same shape as the ebay ones.

    Next to the standard downpipe....

    As you can see they do need modified, and with a bit of time and measuring you get something like this....

    Sorry for the late reply... Not been on in a while.

    Not sure off this sizes, as it was all made and measured up when it was on the car up on the ramps. Got it all tacked up, then removed to be welded up. The neck was cut at the bend and extended, flange removed and shorted and back lambda hole turned down more so it clears the underside channel with no problems. Fits perfectly centres and clears everything, so no rattles or vibrations at all :)

    I brought on for mine had to extend the neck as well. biggest mistake I ever did buying one they r crap. It still vibrates now and is really bad when reversing. I would recommend to anyone to just bite the bullet and get a 2.5 inch miltec decat any day
