    I have ordered a V3 Relentless Downpipe and Sports Cat for my car :)

    So hopefully should arrive next week somewhen.

    So in readyness for the arrival what else might i need to fit it eg bolts etc? I think its coming with gaskets etc

    cheers

    Use OEM gaskets for turbo to DP else you will be up in there changing it again in weeks... I wouldn't use the supplied gasket for the 2 bolt flange either tbh as they are made from cheese... high temp silicon sealant is better tbh

    Get them from a dealer... they aren't expensive tbh...

    DP its secured to the turbo studs by nuts... maybe worth getting a set if they are cheap enough as you could round them worse case getting them off but generally speaking they are reusable
