Default STi axle back on a RS?

Hi there,
What modification needs to be done to fit a STi axle back muffler on to a 02-03 RS?

Or is it just a direct bolt on?

You have to modify the hangar closest to the front of the car (near the swaybar) and rotate the flange of the axle-back. Its easier to get the whole cat-back section and use that... though that may not bolt up perfectly to the cat section. Any exhaust shop should be able to do it for you.

I am thowing one of thse on my 01 RS very soon, everything look like it will line up, but I am going to goto a shop and have them make some 2.5" mandrel bends from the cat to the axle back. Should be less then $100.

If you did a search for this in the proper forum: The Normally Aspirated Forum, you would have found the answer quite easily...
