Nope...they do 2.75" or 3", not 2.5". Is it the gasket blowing, or the pipe/resonator/silencer that's gone?

Mine did that because I ham fisted the nuts up and bent the flang on each side so opened the centre to make it blow slightly just try and bend it back with a little exhaust seal job done

Well here i am trying to weigh up the pros and cons between a forged 2.0 or a 2.1.
looking for a reliable 400bhp.
Then i have to decide who will be doing the job for me
Do i get my engine forged or go for a scd block ?
Do i need a FMIC ?
Do i need bigger injectors. ?

Just be thankful it wasn't a deer, hitting one of those demolishes a lot more than a splitter!

Nothing strange here.
I am more than happy with the work Ryan has done for me.
As for the other thread it is none of my buisness and i have no desire to make comments or get involved.
