Default gtspec 3 bolt up pipe to tomei

Does anyone know if a gtspec 3 bolt up pipe with 44mm EWG, bolt to a Tomei UEL header. They are both 3 bolt up pipes and I think the Tomei ID is 2.25 Not sure what the gtspec pipe size is. I need to run a EWG on my Tomei header and don't have the skill or want to cut up my Tomei up pipe.

Thanks, Any one else have any input, maybe someone that has used the gtspec pipe. I guess I will just order the gtspec pipe, unless I am told otherwise. Thanks

I didn't mean that. I just would like to here from more then one person, before I spend $360 bucks on something that I am not 100% sure it fits. You didn't say you used both. I was wondering if anyone had some measurements or any other helpful info. Sorry

Ok, so I guess GTspec doesn't make the up-pipe with the EWG anymore. So now my only option is to either weld a EWG mount on my Tomei up-pipe, which I would have to pay someone to do, or buy new 3-bolt Grimspeed up-pipe that fits the Tomei headers. It appears the Grimspeed up-pipe is a smaller dia. then my Tomei pipe.The hole in the 3-bolt flange is the same but the pipe tapers down to a smaller dia. Will these effect any performance by stepping down the up-pipe size. The hole on the turbo side is the same on both the Grimspeed and Tomei up-pipes, so the difference in pipe size might not make a difference. Also I am not a fan of flex joints. Will the flex joint last and will it effect the flow in any way. I would love some opinions on what I should do. Thanks

IAG modifies the gt spec uppipe.
here is the whole kit: http://www.iagperformance.com/IAG-EW...g-per-1023.htm

so i would just call them and see if they just sell the pipe individually. i know at one point they listed them on the site. but it looks like they updated it so i didnt see it listed by itself.

Thanks, But I already contacted IAG. They do not offer the pipe anymore. It seems no one has one in there inventory and GTspec has discontinued them. I ended up ordering a grimspeed one.
