    hi all maybe a silly question but ive been looking for the answer for a good half hour now so thought i would just ask you lot. im going with a new downpipe and decat now 3" and i was just wondering if the decat was also 3" and how it would mate upto a 2.5 or 2.75" exhaust once the cat meets the rest of my exhaust..probably a silly question and im sorry for asking haha. any help is great

    the downpipe is 3'' the whole way mate, then the decat section reduces from 3-2.5-2.25 to work with the standard exhaust.

    If you ever upgrade to a 2.5'' catback system you can cut the 2.25'' section out and replace it with a bit of 2.5'' pipe to keep the diameter the whole way through :)
