Helix DP and Borla hush

I did a little searching and couldn't find the exact answer I was looking for, so here is my question -

I decided to just go ahead and get an exhaust. I love the sound of the Borla Hush catback, and I wanted to get the helix uppipe/catted downpipe.
I have heard that some people have had trouble getting the helix downpipe and borla catback to fit, and I was wondering how you were able to finally get it right. So all you people with this setup, let me know!

-Chris

The most secure way is to buy the adapter from daddysscp to make a clean and secure joint. It will make the buldged Borla joint flat-flanged to mate with the flat-flanged Helix.

thats the exact setup i have. helix up/catted dp with borla hush. get the adapter from daddys or subydude. you could probably get an exhaust shop to make one cheaper, its just a 3 inch pipe with a flange welded to it. the adapter i got from suby dude needed to be a little bit longer, it didn't slide far enough into the borla to seal it off - i've got the catback pulled as far to the front as i can without having problems. i'm going to take it to an exhaust shop tomorrow and just get them to weld the adapter to the borla to seal it up.

other than my little sputter under there, i'm very pleased with the results!

now if my damn cobb AP would hurry and get here.
