Ok guys I need some help looking for a HFC w/ a vband flange on the downpipe side and a regular triangle flange that connects to the catback exhaust.

Here is a example of what I'm looking for.

The picture below is not a HFC, it is a Berk 4" downpipe for the new BMW N55 single turbo engine.

I need something like this to replace my test pipe.

I can't stand the smell anymore!

I have the full race turbo kit w/ the Full Race 3" Downpipe which is a 2 piece design with vband flanges. Pics of the downpipe is shown below.

So my question is.

Does anyone make a HFC that has this vband flange / triangle flange design like in the 1st picture?

Do I have to custom fab this to make it bolt up to my exhaust system??

I've search and cant find anything w/ this design.

Please chime in.

Thanks in advance!

Just buy a cat or hiflow that you want and have an exhaust shop weld it on for you. And of course you would have to buy a vband flange also.

**Update**

I just got the 3" Vband flange from online and also picking up a 200 cell cat. I just need the 3 hole flange in 3" size that connects to the stock exhuast. Does anyone know where I can get one so I can finish my custom 3" 200 cell HFC w/ vband.

Has anyone bought this 3" 3bolt flange before from vibrant?

Does it match and bolt up to the stock catback?

I want to make sure before I place the order.

Thanks in advance!

The Honda 3 bolt flange is not symmetrical.

It is better to make torque at high rpm than at low rpm when you can take advantage of gearing.
