    Default Pre cat pipe

    Hello gents , my pre cat pipe came yesterday and it looks pretty well made I might add. Anyway took it down to a garage to see what they'd charge to fit it , fair play to them they said it'd be 30 quid if it goes straight in. BUT the guy came back after looking and said he wasn't confident it would and the "flexi pipe would be bent like a banana" . He said they'd need to fab up a pipe from the pre cat all the way through to the primary cat (z16 engine here). Ulitmately this would cost me £150 , after reading on here and looking at the how to was he spouting a load of bull to get me to part with cash or what ? A lot of you guys must have fitted it yourselves so did you have any problems with the fitment/flexi?

    No problems at all so long as you definately have the right pipe for your engine (z16 and a16 pipes are different ). Are you sure it's definitely a Z16 pipe you have?

    Should be fine then.

    if you wanted you could post a picture up of the actual item you have just in case you've been sent the wrong item by accident and we could tell you (just to be sure) but otherwise it all sounds ok.

    Either that or try a different garage in case they're trying to scam you.

    Can be tricky to keep it in place and get a good seal plus v band clamp done up but if you have someone to help it will be ok.
