Kill that exhaust leak for GOOD!
Exhaust leaks seem to be an all-too-common issue with most modded Subarus. They tend to spring up out of nowhere and cause hours of troubleshooting headaches. The most guaranteed leak you will get though is if you run an aftermarket 3" downpipe to an OEM or OEM like 2.5" Exhaust. Compare our adapter to the competition and you will immediatly see why we offer the best solution to finally end that pesky leak.
Cut from Steel and hand welded these pieces were born tough. With the ability to work with both flat style gaskets AND donut gaskets they cannot be matched. If that wasn't enough we flared out one end to just shy of 3" so that unlike the competitors, our adapter will not block flow!
A Final solution to pesky problems, it's what you can expect from GrimmSpeed™
NOTE: GrimmSpeed 3in. Gasket and OEM Subaru Donut Gasket SOLD SEPARATELY
Fitment Note: Adapter is only inteded to be used for connecting aftermarket 3in Downpipe to OEM style catback. It can not be done in reverse.

I purchased the Grimmspeed downpipe and I have an SPT exhaust. I love the exhaust but not the 2.5" reduction at the flange. Still I want to keep the exhaust.
Enter the Grimmspeed downpipe adapter. It does what is stated and is the best resolution for the 2.5" issue some of us face.
top quality welds and plated as well. Another great product that is simple to use.

This kit allowed for a clean installation of the catted jpipe while also allowing me to maintain my stock CBE for the time being for idle/around town stealth and still get 95% of the power from the jpipe.

Sealed up my ebay downpipe to my stock catback with zero leakage. I used the oem donut and the shoddy ebay graphite gasket and it sealed and fit perfectly!

This is a quality product and I recommend it to anyone who is needing to mate an aftermarket 3in DP to an OEM or OEM-like 2.5in catback exhaust (a Borla CBE for example). Fit well, thick metal, high quality. This would have been 5 stars but the included bolts were not long enough! Wouldn't fit. A quick run to the hardware store was all it took, but c'mon guys, you took all that time and effort to make a top quality product, only to skimp on the bolts?!
Tip to buyers: don't forget to add the donut gasket to your order!
Matt@GrimmSpeed: Give us a call and we'd be happy to send you the correct hardware! We've never had this issue, so I suspect that either you've got an exhaust fitment issue or the wrong bolts were packaged accidentally. Either way, our customer service guys would be happy to help.

"The part itself is good. Be wary the bolts that come with it are too short for many DPs out there, in my case with a Perrin pipe I could not get it threaded on with a washer, I had to go without for now.
Shame on you Grimmspeed, when the product is a universal part, you should make sure the bolts are plenty long, not like there is a clearance issue at the DP flange.
Review marked down because it is really annoying to have to complete a product when the included hardware is inadequate."

This adapter made my Invidia DP install MUCH easier, and, most importantly, with the doughnut gasket, sealed well! As with all GS products, this piece is very "over engineered", with a nice beefy flange and a nice smooth transition between the DP and the factory cat-back. Anyone who is thinking of installing a DP to a 2.5" CB should consider this a necessity! Great product that no one (except GS) seemed to think of before...genius.

Just received mine today. As usual the quality is top notch! The flanges are thick & the welds are perfect! I had recently purchased one from another vendor and the Grimmpseed adapter FAR exceeds the quality of my other adapter.
