Default mid pipe

I just picked up a modified for the RS, Prodrive axle back. It is modified to fit the stock mid pipe. I want to replace the stock mid pipe also. Is there a pipe that is designed to fit the stock axle back? Thanks

well if its designed to fit the stock midpipe, if you replace the midpipe it wouldn't fit anymore. right? that was unusually confusing to read for some reason

Cat back setups come with the mid-pipe, but most are really 2 pieces... mid pipe and axle back.

You can get the mid pipe on eBay or check the FS forums.

Some vendors sell them, of course... simple google search turned this up:

As always, chack with the NASIOC vendors/advertisers first - they keep the lights on here! :-)

Well if it's designed to go between the two stock pipes it will work, and if it's designed to go with a certain axle back it won't. The axle back I have will bolt up to the stock mid pipe. I'd like to replace my mid pipe with a stainless one w/o the resonator. sorry for any confusion, i'm kind kind bad at explaining things sometimes.

Couldn't you just go to a muffler shop that mandrel bends pipes?

+1 for the above. Just get a custom midpipe made up and then weld it to the axleback and voila!

Generally, you bolt the midpipe to the axelback, not weld.

I want to avoid any cutting and welding, that's kind of why I asked the question. In the future, if I decide to trade or sell I can remove and sell these upgrades. If I trade it in, I get nothing extra for them, so why not put the stock one back on and get some of my money back.
Thanks for all the replies.Mel

An exhaust shop could take your flanges from the stock midpipe and bend you one for less than $100. The stromung pipe is nice since its ready to go.

You can make flanges which isn't a problem but is also more labor plus gaskets and increasing the chance of any leaks. My custom headerback is one piece and my old exhaust which was a catback was also one piece. It's all about preference. So "generally" doesn't apply here. **** conformity and bull**** reasons.
