    hi guys

    just got myself a miltek 3" downpipe with sports cat but could do with a few tips on fitting.

    just checked and the original center section is 55mm od and the miltek is 65 od

    been checking ebay for reducers, found a 65mm to 55mm tempted to weld the 65mm end to the downpipe then use a straight joiner on the other end to the center section

    this sound like a good idea?

    your wasting your time if you fit the down pipe and dont continue the 3" throughout the piping, eventually it is going to cause back pressure... get the rest of the milltec kit and you wont have to worry about bodging it on.
