one thing i notice. your clamps are missing the middle spacer which seals it properly.

This is how it should look.



the Beluga clamps super cheap:

Hmm, I think I might just go ahead and be proactive and replace them. Happen to have any particular sets you'd recommend? Save me research time

well, i dont mean "missing" as in a hardware defect.. they just use cheap clamps. those might even work better honestly.. when you have that middle wedge, it can distort the pipe right at that point and cause a leak. honestly i can see your clamps working a bit better.

Yeah, okay I'll give em a shot. But if I feel like they are even just a little bit sketchy at all, I will replace before truly going live with the CBE.

Yes plz post pic if you can find them

i went all the way back to my 2009 GTI pics, and found the exact pic I was thinking of. My Billyboat downpipe. See how the center wedge pushes in the pipe, thus making a leak point on each side of it. Since yours does not have that, it might work beter.

The #1 best choice of all would be band clamps. But they are pretty big and ugly too.

I might pick this up just for the back piece and mate it to the front of the Magnaflow pending fitment of course.

That would be a fun little project, and you would have yourself a true "custom" exhaust! haha

Please keep us updated if you decide to do this
