I just got a stock 05 STi mid pipe and exhaust for my 2.5i but the mid pipe of the STi is about 1 or 2 inch shorter than the stock 2.5i mid pipe. Is there a way i can force it to fit? I have tried pushing the mid pipe and the axle back together but it doesn't get close enough to bolt on. Also, the stick thing that holds on to the rubber piece wont reach. How can I modify it to fit? Or do I have to get a different one.
