2 bolt flange orientation for downpipe?


Recommended Posts

I'm ordering a new exhaust system for my 2011 Evora S. I need to confirm what variation my car has of the 2 bolt flange at the downpipe flexy. It seems there are 2 orientations as per the attached photos. It looks like I need to remove the under tray to see the flange - is that the case or is there an easier way access/see it. My silencer is definitely the MY11 s/charger version (A132S0154F) so from Deroure (link below) it looks like I should have the angled bolt flange (left picture) but want to confirm for sure so that the order is correct.

Many thanks for any advice.

Here is a photo from when I installed a Larini delete pipe and Larini valved muffler a while back (I've since gone to straight pipes that I built, but do not have a good photo for representation). You can see the flange mount angle in the bottom of the photo with the 2 nuts on the studs. This is on my 2011 Evora S:

I think the photos you posted are snipets of the Sector111 flange photo???  If so, Sector111 created the full photo to show the correct flange orientations.
If I remember right (someone please chime in if I am wrong 😃 ), pre-2012 "NA" cars exhaust flange orientations were different from the "S" orientation. The 2011 S and 2012+ onwards cars (both na and S) are in the S orientation.

Thanks again Chad, I think you are 100% correct. I got under the back of the car over the weekend and with some difficulty took a video on my phone of where the downpipe meets the 3rd cat and it does seem to be same orientation as the Evora S flange design.
