I bought just the downpipe under the impression that it bolted to the stock o2 housing, after an hour of fiddling I realize it does not. the holes on the downpipe do not line up correctly with the stock o2 housing...

Curious if anyone has this setup - TurboXS downpipe back...I want to know if I just got a bad pipe or if all of them do not bolt to the stock o2 housing.

Thanks

Are you installing by yourself with a jack lift?
And by not lining up correctly do you mean that you got the pipes alight but the screw holes dont?

If not then try getting someone to help you, theres a flex joint on the downpipe correct? That should allow you to bend taht pipe a bit. So just push the pipe back towards the cat. and align the holes with the screws.

If im talking nonsense can you post a pic so I can see what your problem is?

Had a friend helping, the o2 housing has threading pretty much locked into it, so I have to use stock threading, and it will not put both in, if you get one in the other refuses to slide in, even lining up the turboXS dp with the stock dp, you can see the two holes do not line up, looking in is something like this:

The bold brackets being the holes on the TurboXS downpipe, and on the one side, (when lined up), you can see the hole on the stock DP is to the right; meaning the stock threading is off to the right a bit...

I hope this makes sense....

IIRC I drilled both holes out just a hair and used one of the bolts provided with the pipe and one of the original studs. Very easy to do over all.

email turboxs, if they dont get you another one or say that its just how it comes out, redrill one of the holes,(by making it bigger), so that both bolts and nuts will alight.

Did you use bolts that came with it or stock threadings on o2?

I have to drill the holes because I can't get the threadings/stock studs out of the o2 housing.

The dp was meant to match up with their aftermarket o2 Housing.
I have the turboxs dp with stock o2 housing. We drilled out the holes in the flange to make them bigger then used slightly smaller bolts.
