    My fujitsubo backbox arrived today, looks a lovely bit of kit. Waiting on the J's racing b pipe to a arrive before I get to fit anything. Powerflex gearbox mount insert came today too.

    Got a bit of an issue with my mix and match catback, the holes on the connection plate of the fuji back box doesn't line up with the J's racing b-pipe, it's a bit bigger. The back box that came with the J's racing b-pipe has a rattle (it's the metal mesh inside that's broken away). I have a few options -

    A) Do I just fit the J's b pipe to the oem back box and flog the Fuji
    B) Drill some holes in the Fuji connector and bolt it to the J's b pipe.
    C) Try and yank out the rattling mesh inside the J's back box and use it as a complete cat back? (Don't know how important/relevant that mesh is)?

    How much of a difference is there?

    Another option is welding a new flange (or paying someone to) to the b-pipe. Shouldn't cost too much if you could get hold of one relatively easily. http://exhaustpartsuk.com/index.php?...dex&cPath=1270 for example

    Another option would be to cut out the side of the bolt holes in the b-pipe rather than the back box, especially if the b-pipe isn't stainless.

    Not sure if the b pipe is titanium or stainless, the fuji is obviously stainless. I don't want to use the OEM b pipe
