Default Stromung Dual Tip Axleback for a WRX how can it fit a 02RS?

Hey guys I need your help with this one. I love the sound of the Stromung Dual Tip exhaust. I think its one of the best sounding exhausts that I have ever heard. With that being said I found a Stromung Dual Tip exhaust for sale. It was used on this guys WRX for 10k miles and it looks very mint. The guy is going back to stock so he can sell it since he got a truck. Slight scratches on the can but the tips are near mint. I have a 2002 Impreza RS and as we all know it has 2.25 piping. The inlet for this exhaust is 2.5. I made a similar post on RS25.com and I just wanted to get some feedback from the NASIOC people to see what are some methods to get this axleback installed onto my 02RS. Thanks for the help.

Best thing would be to bring it to a local muffler shop and have them fit it up

I think all you'll need to do is have a flange rotated. I had the dual-tip at one point. Loved it. If it is indeed the case that you need to rotate a flange, I'd recommend hacking up the midpipe as opposed to the axleback. Shouldn't cost much to have an exhaust shop take care of it.

Edit: After a little searching I just realized that the muffler you're getting was once on my car.

I got it on my car. What i did was cut the mid pipe flange from the existing holes outward in the proper direction to make them slots and then bolted with oversized washers on the slotted side. Not the strongest solution but its been on there for a year and a half leak free and its an easy swap back to stock.

Haha yeah it was yours. He kept it in really good condition. If I just rotated the midpipe to mate to the axleback and threw in a gasket meant for the axleback that should be good.

Something along the line of body washers but i dont think they were that big. I was at my friends shop and he had them in the hardware boxes so you should be able to find them most places with a good selection of nuts and bolts. Same ID but larger than standard OD. I'm not going to lie, its a bit mickey mouse, but hey it works and hasn't leaked a bit since install.

Oh so you never had the midpipe rotated to fit the flange on the axleback itself.

And I dont know if anyone knows but how much do you guys think it would cost to have it rotated and then mated to the axleback? Thanks
