HKS Legal exhaust
Morning all,

has anyone had any issue fitting a HKS legal exhaust system to the standard manifold + downpipe (2-1)? I tried last night and the middle points don't align (no photo of the misalignment sorry)

For reference, the car is an early model, non cat.

Here is the downpipe which I have fitted, the HKS comes more or less to the end of the muffle component.

Thanks for your help!

Hard to make a comparison as there are not that many AE86 factory exhaust
systems around that have not been cut and welded a few times over the
years...

This pic is from the USA so it likely had a cat rather than the resonator.
Judging by the change in material at the 2 > 1 merge on your pipe I would
guess that the original pipe was cut somewhere close to the merge and a
new piece with resonator welded on. Probably your best bet is to take the
car and exhaust to a muffler shop and have them cut abd weld to get the
pieces joined up. Looks don't count for much under the car Smile

Thanks for the feedback jondee, I will head down that route, hopefully I can find a shop close by.
