Hi guys,

I'm trying to find some solid information if a 2L front pipe will also fit the 1.6L equipped Levorg?
Looking to install this Perrin Front pipe

PSP-EXT-230

Appreciate any help, cheers guys

Is this something to fit somewhere between the engine and the catalytic converter ? if yes, don't even try - the 2.0 has no turbo, the 1.6 does. you'd be trying to fit some N/A pipe to a turbo car, where the turbo is in between the engine and that pipe. Highly unlikely it'd fit.

And as the turbo is slightly at the front of the engine, that pipe may even be to short :/

Now, if you wanna buy a 2.0l turbo WRX downpipe to fit on a 1.6 turbo levorg... Better try & find a JDM turbo 2.0L Levorg compatible downpipe. that has better chance to fit

From my research the turbo outlet gasket of both is identical which means it should bolt up to the turbo, shape is roughly the same as well. If minor modification (cut/weld) is required no problem, I can deal with that. In theory this downpipe should be very close, FA20 Turbo WRX to go on FB16 Levorg. If anyone has tried it please let me know

0k, so you're on about fitting a downpipe for a 2.0 turbo WRX onto a 1.6l turbo levorg. That wasn't clear from your first post, I understood you were talking about fitting a 2.0 NA levorg downpipe onto a 1.6 turbo levorg :D

Nah sorry if that wasn't clear :)

I'm sure someone here must have done or tried it?

Bump up again, any one here who has tried to install a WRX FA20 Turbo downpipe on the 1.6l turbo Levorg?
