I bought a 3" downpipe recently on the understanding that it will fit the stock exhaust system as I only want to go to stage 3.

It doesn't :(

I'm on the lookout for one that will mate up to this if possible?

To be honest a 3" down pipe into a standard 2.25" system is a waste of time, Ideally you need a 3" system but a 2.5" will be OK IF you can find one.

Main issue will be, standard system has a 2 bolt flange to join to - that has a 3" sleeve. You could probably weld a reducer to it with a 2 bolt flange which would likely work out cheaper than a replacement centre section. If you go the centre section route you will then have issues joining to the rear section as that will be 2.25 not 3".

I think JT used to do a reducer for their d/p. The 3" end was a sliding fit on the end of their d/p, the small end was a loose 2 hole flange. I had one kicking around for years but i think I must have sold it on years ago, probably when I sold my d/p. It should be easy for an exhaust fabricator to knock up. Try aph engineering (Albert666)

I'd be turning those clamps round to point sideways pretty quickly before they ground out.
What is the small silencer behind the flexi?
