i have an 88 and bought the same one last month, i shimmed the crossmember as much as i could while being able to engage several turns of threads. it also helped to loosen the exhaust clamp section while putting the crossmember on then tightening it. also i paired it with an ebay downpipe. works and sounds good to me with st205 swap.

I had about 2 inches cut from the crossmember lengthwise (left to right) and some metal added to go around the pipe. front to back, 70-80% of the original crossmember is intact, fairly quick fix

I'll update with a pic soon...

I bought this for my 165 and it fit snug, but seems to fit well. Looks exactly like yours..........but who knows if there are little differences

I just bought this same exhaust 3 days ago and installed it on my 165 last night. It was a tight fit at the rear, but it works. Its pretty quiet for my taste, but maybe Ill upgrade the muffler.

Likely not the same manufacturer, but I've got a Motoria-branded 3" single outlet(what I've been calling the potato shooter; wasn't this an SSAC special?) on my '165. Frankly, I'm not too happy with it. It drones quite a bit, and while a friend of mine likes it and calls it 'throaty,' it lacks the characteristic 3SGTE 'growl' that I remember from the stock exhaust. I do have an Aussie 3" DP on the car, so it's pretty much straight from the turbo back. The shop I'm having my '165 worked on by did mention the exhaust was giving them fits(I'm getting the belts, water pump, and oil pump done for good measure).

Tell everyone the truth, I'd love to back down to a good 2.5", twin outlet system with a high-flow cat. That should tone things down a bit and get some of that growl back. Is that 2.5" system listed earlier in the thread any good?

Exhaust install video is up.
Thanks to yyonline for figuring out the bolts for the subframe.
