Default Exhaust question

I have a 3" dp and need something that will connect to my stock cat back. It's not connecting all the way and has an exhaust leak. Or do I need to get a cat back?

Some of the turboxs downpipes need an adaptor to connect to stock or other aftermarket systems.

Anything past the downpipe is called "Cat-back" , there is another split before the axle which is know as "Axle-back". And of course the whole system including downpipe would be calle "Turbo-back".

I have a full 3in catback system. Not sure if it fits a legacy though.

FYI, nothing to tune unless you have boost issues after the swap. Once you have eliminated the cat or rear O2 sensor you need to have those check engine light codes turned off.

Exactly. Kill the codes. Therefore, don't be lazy and tune!

I heard something about an extender for the sensor on the dp, that it would make that ce disappear? Anyone know about that?

all you need is the donut gasket and tighten that bad boy down. that's what I did on the STI before I got the exhaust, no leaks and worked fine.

The snow will rip it apart... moisture.

use a flat flange exhaust gasket with orange gasket sealer. Thats what Dale and I used on Hope's car with that DP. worked just fine and she had no leaks. It also didn't tear apart in the winter. Also don't use your spring bolts to hold it in place. Not enough pressure. use normal bolts.
