^maybe post in the parts for sale section???

AFAIK, the only midpipes mad for our cars are aussie or SSAC.

Anyone know of any others?

i *think* J Speed made a MP - not sure if it is even made anymore. :shrug:

for some reason i was also thinking C-One made a MP at one time for a ST185, but i know they make a MP for a ST205.

there's always the custom route as well.

This is the only 3" on bulletproof's site:

J-speed sells a ceramic coated one, but it is only 2.75"
http://www.bulletproofautomotive.com/ca ... hp?ID=1239

On another note. I don't know if you can get the correct pipe from SSAC. I ordered just a MP from them and they sent me one for an ST205. Looking at the pictures on their site more closely, they also show an ST205 MP in the photos even though it is advertised as an ST185 MP. And of course, now they won't answer my emails. Oh well, at least Im only out $50.

Good luck man! I knew they had a sketchy rep before I ordered, but I figured I'd take a chance on a $50. The next cheapest midpipe is SOOO much more expensive, and I haven't heard really great things about Aussie fitment either.

Two seperate pics there. One looks like the one that will not fit. The bottom looks like it might fit if it's long enough.

Actually, those are all pics of the same pipe. The angle of one photo makes them look different. But that is an ST205 pipe the same as listed on their website. The section with the hanger on it and the band clamp needs to be almost as long as the front section for it to fit an ST185.
