So fitted my blueflame cat back this evening on one of the ramps at work, which was a doddle ! :funk:

Thrilled to bits with it, quality seems spot on, fitment was easy and it looks and sounds awsome ! :clap:

Anyway i have a quick query...

Where the origonal cat joins the blueflame there is a gasket, this gasket is sized to fit the hole in the cat and the origonal rear section (2.5 or 2.75" ?).

Where I have fitted the 3" blueflame, this gasket hole was too small.

Now, I have fitted it all for now using this gasket but i guess my query is where can i get a 3" hole gasket ?

I know what ppl are going to say... "If the gasket it the same size as the cat bore then it wont be causing a restiction"

This would be true but when refitting it seemed the gasket was actually slightly smaller and I just want to remove this potential restriction.

anyone else come across this when fitting a 3" cat back ?

Thanks :D

We dont use anything but clear silicone sealant in the flanges.

we fit many blue flame systems at work and never used any gaskets.

blueflame themselves said they dont use anything
