I just thought i would ask mate. I need a pipe before the 25-5 as ive got an event on.
Just hope the fmf gets here before then.

If i was closer i would have taken you up on your offer too.

Cheers Cam

Re: Squshed stock header need info on FMF megabomb with mid

The FMF header/mid-pipe is a combo item (both included) and muffler is separate. I had previously Akra slip-on and added the FMF megabomb combo to it. Be careful when mounting the mid-pipe as it's OD is seriously larger than stock.

It will touch cases on two spots, frame near shock and brake master cylinder. Also check that the bolt you use to mount the mid-pipe through engine mounting bracket won't touch the mid-pipe when it's torqued down completely. I had to shave ~5mm from bolt threads and use one 2.6mm washer to get acceptable clearance. I had accidentally torqued the bolt down first and it touched the pipe. Luckily it was only small punch mark.

Otherwise it's a pretty straight on fitting exhaust. Just throw to installation manuals in the bin, and try to check that you can get as perfect fit as possible. It's no Akrapovic fit, but then again the price is 50% off compared to Akra.


Still good quality exhaust and Ti is lovely:

Re: Squshed stock header need info on FMF megabomb with mid

Yeah i forgot to mention the length of the mid pipe mounting bolt, been awhile since i fitted mine. It is too long, i cut mine down also. It would be easy for somebody with no mechanical "feel" to dent or pierce the pipe with it! I found with a little persuasion that the pipe can be positioned without touching the frame and covers but as you said, it is a very tight fit. It was easier for me to drop the shock out of the way when fitting aswell. Enjoy!
