Downpipe collar not lining up


Recommended Posts

This is very frustrating , I have managed to remove and replace the studs for my new exhaust downpipe with relative easy , however I am now having difficulty getting the collar on the downpipe to line up with the manifold surface . I'm assuming it is supposed to be flush but even when the bolts are really tight to the point where I think the studs are going to snap , any advice please , is it that the flared end of the exhaust might be going on at a slight angle ? Advice would be appreciated , Thanks

Isn't it a ball and socket type joint on a series?

If so, no, the flange does not need to go flush, the sealing surface is the ball and socket, not the flange.


My 2a is def a ball and socket, so the flange will never meet and go flush.
