Default US Dump Pipes VS Australian

Hi guys, I'm after some of your excellent advice

I am looking at getting one of these

Invidia USA.

But I have seen mention of the fact that the weird left hand drive cars have a different dump pipe to us normal right hand drive cars, and if I was to get one of these DP it would need modification to fit.

Do any of you know what is involved in making one fit, or if its a no go ????

Cheers
Nathan

you probably have the steering knuckle hitting the dump pipe never bothered getting a exhaust from the state when the local ones are bloody good and fit right hand drives with no problems

The flanges and brackets will line up, but as mentioned above, 90% of the time the steering knuckle contacts the downpipe when the wheel is turned due to obvious lhd versus rhd equals no steering rack clear on US cars. Heat and a hammer will sort it out, but why not get one locally that is made for rhd cars? Much easier

I am chasing just a Dump Pipe, not a whole exhaust, but with a divorced wastegate with splitter, just like the Invidia one.

Can anyone recommend a locally made one or an online store that wont cost the earth ???

Cheers

I havent got that far, but, I can get one for US$275 plus postage from my American address, so maybe $50 with some other stuff ??? so probably just over $300 aus ???
But that's all for naught if its a huge pain to make fit
