you need to take it to an exhaust shop and get the doughnut flange cut off and have him weld a flat flange in its place. Or else you will have a leak. And then you could get a flat gasket.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

Either do what baller said, or there is a couple different adaptors that can be bought for such a situation.

I think he's exaggerating slightly. The top part of his downpipe is probably about the same size as the opening behind the turbo - which is about a 4" oval-shaped opening (measurement taken on the larger horizontal part of the oval) and it's probably a bellmouth downpipe. I'm sure the actual pipe itself tapers down to 3" (give or take) by the time it hits the flange where it connects to the cat back.

He might also suffer from what is known as "small downpipe syndrome." Although this subconscious or conscious envy may solely be based on the idea that a larger downpipe is universally more satisfying and appealing to a sexual partner, other implications arise from the fact that a large downpipe has been seen in many cultures as a symbol of high masculinity, dominance, and power. Tee hee.

LOL...that was pretty hirrarious. but the reason why i got the 4"(which tapers to a 3"exit) is because the guy i got it from slammed his car to the ground and since the dp was to big it scraped the ground. so he had it for a year just chilln in his garage and i had asked around and i got his number. long story short i got it from him for $100 which was a steal.

as for the dp not mating up to the cb, it connects no problem but since the dp is flat and the cb is flared out to fit a doughnut flange its not matting correctly and causes a rather annoying leak. so thats why im just gona go get that flared out piece cut off and get a flat flange welded to it so that way i wont have an exhaust leak.

ps....my friends and i got a kick by putting the down pipe "on that area" and just walking around. we dubbed it the "donkey dong"
