Pls tell me if I will have problem fitting a Magnex front pipe and de-cat pipe to my Tommi Mak EVO6 standard exhaust?

I have not ordered it yet since I need some feedback and comments from you experts out there!

What gains should I expect?

Thanks in adavance!!

slightly different but:

i replaced the back section first (so fitting to the standard cat and front pipe)
then replaced the cat with a decat pipe from ralliart
then replaced the front pipe with a magnex

so to be honest, i think all the bits must be interchangeable, so should be fine the other way round

Fitting front pipe and cat pipe is simple. The only difficult bit is the two bolts onto the turbo elbo. You'll need a long thin walled socket for them. Also you need to remove the lower brace (3 bolts) and bend it slightly, to clear the larger pipe dia. When bent, elongate the 2 end holes, so it locates back in the correct place. All in all should take about 1 hour to fit, less if you've got use of a ramp. The change to the car is very noticeable. Suggest a new back box as well. Magnex are good, but I went for the Blitz, sound is tremendous. You'll be shocked how restrictive (small and twisty) the standard system is.

Bending the lower brace defeats the object of having it fitted as a strut or tie will only work efficiently if straight. The same goes for strut braces, a bent strut brace loses the majority of it's strength and is pretty pointless. It would be better to place a thick washer under each mounting point and so keeping the brace straight while moving it away from the exhaust. Elongating the mounting holes will allow movment around these points.

Clive,

agreed. Only thing is that the brace bent very easily (by hand), replacing with a Cusco one, and using the washers/longer bolts might be a better solution.

This was a problem when fitting my PE front pipe , however , I turned up some spacers and used longer bolts 2 lower the brace 2 clear the pipe.

If any1 needs a set , I'll have some made in our workshop at a none scary price , email me 4 details.

The brace bent easily because it is a tie rod and will be in tension, that is why it should be straight.
