    CNT Downpipe to Cat-Back Adapter (Question?)

    So I ordered a CNT catted dp along with the adapter (I have an SPT exhaust), and in the description it says....

    "This adapter will allow you connect a 3" downpipe to your factory midpipe without any leaks. This part only includes the flange. It is designed to be used with your factory donut gasket, a flat 3" gasket and longer bolts."

    My question is, what size bolts to I need to hook this up? I can't really take anything apart as I'm getting this installed an hour away from my house (where there's a lift) so I need to have all hardware ready to go. I already purchasd some turbo to dp bolts (in case mine get damaged). Let me know if you can help! Excited to go stage 2 soon!

    The SPT exhaust is already a 3in exhaust. Methinks you won't need that adapter considering you'll be mating a 3inch flange to a 3inch flange.

    Just get bolts that are long enough from any hardware store...not that big of a deal really.

    Everything I have says it's 3" axel back but 2.5 from dp to axel. It's a 2010, not sure if anything changed from 10/11/12. So I guess I'm just going to grab a bunch of random bolts and use whatever works, I have no way of getting under the car to see what I need so I'll just have to give it a good guess and go from there

    You don't have a stock jack in the trunk?

    Yeah it does look like it tapers to 2.5in to mate to the stock DP. I'd sooner have that part chopped off at a shop and a 3in flange welded on to get rid of that minor restriction.

    I suppose I could jack it up with that, just lazy I suppose. I heard you don't gain much more with a full 3" vs. stock unless you are doing some serious mods, I'm sticking at stage 2 for now so maybe in the future I'd consider going 3" all the way back. I like the sound of the SPT and don't really want it much louder, not sure if making it 3" all the way back really makes that much of sound difference

    That little couple inch section where it tapers won't really make a difference at all in gains or sound. The rest of the exhaust will already be a 3inch once you put the downpipe on.

    The power alone comes from the Downpipe as well...CBE doesn't do anything but change noise.
