Lol he wouldnt pmsl, Had nothing to do with em its basically the short pipe from the collector(if ya like where all ya pipes meet from both heads)to your turbo.

i`d guess (and it is a guess without checking)sti`s and uk`s (or wrx`s) are a different diameter,I`d "expect" sti`s to run a larger diameter one.

Re: the uppipe urgent!!!

ALL classics run the same up-pipe set-up regardless of model, new-age ones are again very similiar apart from 2.0WRX cars that have a "pre-cat" fitted to them and strangle the spool slightly....................

we do pukka s/steel custom designed up-pipes at 115inc.

be very wary of some after-market ones as they tend to be way over size and do nothing apart from stop spool up and kill torque...........need to be well under 2" as a rule, unless you have a 600bhp drag monster and definately nothing like 2.5"!!!

Re: the uppipe urgent!!!

no need to mess with original uppipe, if its gone then take aftermarket one.
40mm pipe size and the spool will be better. i have done that and very happy.
there is weight different to.

Personally wouldnt argue with alyn he owns AS Performance - Rally Motorsport Specialists I tend to find i cant argue with that sort of experience.
