when i first did my 2zz conversion on my wagon i didnt run the splitter pipe i had just 2 1/2 inch pipe there instead, it drove ok but i can notice a definate differance with it on there now, it accelerates much better in midrange with that proper splitter there,

Half of it is gone, it just breaks off in little bits and sits there, luckily it hasn't blown through my new cat, I had to replace the old cat because it blew through at one stage..

So what shall I do? Replace the down pipe to the cat with just a new pipe, or ?

why are the welds breaking?

If it's welded properly it should hold, use something like an ER70S filler with the TIG after sandblasting the inside clean

If the metal's degrading then rip it out and weld in a new section.

Common problem for hard driven sportivos for that fin to crack the weld and tear the fin. It's the ****ty spot welds and thin wall exhaust.

Easiest fix is to repalce the manifold with the PPE extractor. It is pretty much the same length is the 4-2-1 stock setup (so to where the fin ends). The cat will need to be shifted rearwards about 15cm.

its clean and the welds are good done with tig. it just breaks around the weld, the weld itself stays there, if it makes sence, the metal plate on the inside wall is breaking off...

yeh the thin wall on the inside of the exhaust is breaking... aswell as the plate...
