    Hi,

    Would 2.8 V6 30v CAT pipes fit onto a 2.6 V6 12v engine? Could they be modded to fit?

    I know the 2.4 30v and 2.8 30v share the same exhausts....

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I'd hazard a guess and say no.

    The wider heads on the 30v mean the exhaust manifolds likely sit further out, and thus the pipe will have to be a different shape to connect to them.

    Thats not to say you cant weld some 2.8 cats into the 2.6 system, jsut that the whole downpipe etc wont just bolt right in.
