I have bought an exhaust for my 2010 1.6k Supersport from a fellow member. I currently have the original inside the skin collector on my car and the one I have bought is a Cheeseman 4 into 1 with a cat. It came from an 2001 R400K Superlight SV. In my high excitement at finding one, I neglected to consider that I was buying an exhaust from an SV chassis for my metric S3. I’m not sure whether a 2001 SV would be imperial or metric.
In order to help me salvage some benefit/dignity from the situation, would any members be able to offer advice or have thoughts on the questions currently keeping me awake:
Would the system sit a little wider than usual but still fit the rear bracket or would I find that the angles were wrong once the primaries are bolted on because on my car the engine is positioned differently relative to the bracket, for the SV exhaust dimensions to fit?
Would it be possible to trial fit one primary through the existing side skin hole to see if it can be mated successfully to the new collector and box and if this is successful, would it indicate that they all might fit?
If the system as a whole won’t fit, could the primaries and possibly the cat/collector be useable, perhaps with a fabrication job to hook them up my to current silencer box?
I’m keen on being as sure as I can that it will fit or at least that a solution is achievable, before I do anything further.
Any words of BC wisdom would be most welcome so thanks in advance all.
