Sportivo exhaust on a 1ZZ-FE

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have seen Sportivo cat-back exhausts get fitted where it was chopped off behind the cat, requiring re-welding or for that section to be flanged, however I am trying to avoid this.

My question is:

Would an exhaust from a Sportivo bolt straight onto the headers on a 1ZZ-FE?

Thanks guys

No one knows the answer?

I have searched through the forums and some say it bolts right on, some say it needs to be cut behind the cat and welded on.

It's going on a 2006 hatch back.

I can't really help, though i would say it won't fit since different engines?

How come you want the exhaust from the sportivo?

I know the extractors from a sportivo don't fit because the engine is different and therefore the flange that bolts to the motor doesn't match.

The cat back definitely fits, as it has been done many times before. I'm just trying to find out if the sportivo cat back system is a direct bolt-on swap with the 1zz system, or if an exhaust shop needs to modify it to fit (cut and change the flange that bolts up the the extractors etc.).

I want the exhaust off a sportivo as its a better performing system than the stock 1zz gear.

normally when you buy the exhaust it consists of the muffler (flanged) and the mid pipe with 2 cats (flanged also at the end which meets the muff) the other end is sawn off.

any decent muffler shop will be able to saw off your existing mid pipe then weld the new one to it.

highly recommend getting the lot than just the muffler. trust me, it is pretty good.

no you cannot bolt on at the headers. totally different.

if you want headers go for the PPE race headers

the reason why it wont bolt on is simple, the diameter of the pipe is different. sportivo is larger, and as i said 1zz is puny is laughable!

Does not bolt on. Its a larger diameter system. U need to get an adapter or flare the pipe out from the cat to fit it with the sportivo piping.

Hey guys

I just had an corolla sportivo exhaust fitted from the headers back

The flanges on the exhaust are different so you'll need to have the flanges cut off your stock exhaust and rewelded onto the sportivo exhaust.
