    Hey all

    So I bought Josh's old Clio cup race car and just completed my first track day , all good but ended early due to decat pipe completely cracked/broken .

    On further inspection the hanger bracket on the decat pipe wasn't bolted to the engine could this be the cause ??

    Obviously I'm new to the car and finding my feet

    Aghh brilliant , I have a question with mine being a 70mm in diameter can I put the 76mm diameter one on ?
    Will it bolt up or do I need a turbo change for this to work and just stick with the 70mm .

    Thanks

    That’s bolted to a standard turbo and it’s since been fitted to a meg 250 turbo again no issue
