Hi all, thought I would join because whenever I have come browsing this site in the past the members seem extremely knowledgeable and friendly. So here goes...
Myself and my brother have made the jump from an impreza track car to a clio 172 cup. From being relative experts we are now back to being noobs so will be after a bit of help! We are looking to fit a 182 exhaust manifold for a couple of reasons, being reported torque gains (with a decent map) and it being a lot easier to change the de-cat section backwards and forwards for mot.
Couldn't find the direct answer to this anywhere. If we buy a 182 exhaust manifold and a 182 decat pipe, will they connect properly to the rest of the standard 172 exhaust. I have heard that they will because the manifold is longer but the pipe will be smaller making it the same overall length. Can anyone confirm this who has done it themselves?
