Down pipe

Postby shifter » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:33 pm

Hello anyone know if a model 14/g2 csr exhaust downpipe would fit a g5/model 8, or with the pot being higher on the latter hinder it I am assuming they will be the same bore ?

They have different part numbers, so it should be assumed they are not interchangeable.

Same bore but if you try to fit a G2 front pipe on a G5 it will be far to high along the bottom run of the pipe and foul or even go above the front foot rest

Thank you Ozmzdman that's what I was thinking its just that I prefer the swept back pipe that's on the G2 csr look so it looking like buying a length of stainless tube of the right bore and getting the pipe benders dusted off.
