    - Are you fitting the twin VXR exhausts or just one of them?
    - Have you got the centre pipe from the VXR too?

    Cool. I had the same kit and fitted it to mine.

    I used my existing centre pipe section and cut the end (that attaches to the CAT) and cut the end of the VXR centre section (that attaches to the VXR CAT). Your piece thatyou've cut off your (1.8) centre section will slip inside the VXR centre section and just needs to be welded together and bobs your uncle mate LINKY

    (This worked for me as I had already cut my centre section about with the Irmy Y piece that I had on it)

    HTH's mate, if you don't want to go down that route then you'll have to measure the parts to find the size of the reducer needed mate

    Thats great... if my old pipe slides into the new one then thats what ill do

    does the rest of it just fit easily ? .. i.e the boxes onto brackets ?

    Yep easy mate. Make sure you get it welded though mate then you can use the VXR centre section (with your new 1.8 head that will attach to the 1.8 CAT) as the head from your 1.8 will have the clamp attached to it.

    All the hangers are there mate and fits perfectly. HOWEVER, make sure you double check this BEFORE cutting anything
