Downpipe compatibility for a 16T?

Post by Kara503 » Mon Jul 08, 2019 10:33 pm

Hi all,

Searching for a 3" downpipe for a 16T going into my 96 855 Platinum.

Anyone know if a pipe for a P1 or P2 car would work? It looks like they all have an angled flange but I can't quite tell if it lines up at all or if the pipe is totally different. I'm having a hell of a time finding a downpipe with the right flange without spending $500+.

You need a DP for a FWD P80.

Is your 16T angled-flange?

Sometimes you can find folks selling their "extra" DP's from the OBX kits, as they come with 2.

Yea, mine is angled flange. Finding someone selling their extra OBX is exactly what I was hoping for but haven't had any luck yet so I was seeing if I had other options.
