    I have just got one fitted to mine had todo a bit off modding to get it on as it was a 2.75 inch system from cat back and non resonated got off eBay cheap and got step son to modify it to fit onto mine which was not that hard todo just need the exhaust hangers on the back box moving and the flange cutting off and a reducer from 2.75inch to 2.5 inch tig welding on and then we cut my front pipe to meet the rest off the exhaust and used the std clamp to join the two parts together

    I think the bigger question is... if you fix it, what would you do with it? Drive it or sell it on?

    Good question Jon

    I’m not sure yet

    I’m going to put the rear axel on next weekend and sort the front shocker out and see what it drives like to see what happens next
