2016 FRS Midpipe Flange Help

Hey everyone,

Just picked up a Borla Touring Axel Back which I’m lead to believe was previously installed on a 2016 year as well.

Hangers fit just fine but when connecting to the mid pipe it’s off around 1/2”
See picture for difference in fitment.

Anyone have any recommendations on how to remedy this?

Any advice is appreciated.

That's....a hacked up flange I think. Or it was retrofitted onto another car.

Although I own the 2017 version of that Axleback, I'm 100% sure that's not how it's supposed to look like. At all.

I would go back to the guy and get your money back if you bought it from someone on a marketplace.

Here is the old version. Notice how the flange looks NOTHING like that.

Thank you, that’s what I was guessing. Luckily, I’m going to be able to get my money back. As much as I like the sound of the Borla I found a good deal on a Nameless Axel back so I think I’ll go with that, thank you again for the confirmations I had a feeling something wasn’t right

No worries, good that you got your money back.

You'll enjoy the Nameless axleback. One of my favorites of the many exhausts I had haha.
