    So the ID of your muffler inlet is the same as the OD of your pipe before the restriction?

    almost, I cut the adaptor up and used it as a sleeve.
    I could be wrong, the Restrictor may be an integral part of the system, when I enquired about it to Delkavic they suggested it was kept so as to make the Pipe compatible with the stock muffler

    Looks like a good solution @Dool , however my workshop is the communal apartment garage. Closest tool I have to cutting the pipe is scissors.

    Scissors wouldn't cut it, so to speak.

    You've got a garage? Looxury, I've only got a communal apartment carport.

    Angle grinder is better , the Jig Saw can shatter the perspex, Mark it , cut it a bit big and gently grind it back

    Got it so you are referring to NZ, years ago it was talked about to join the two countries and have one currency. Now that would have been interesting. Imagine trying to pick a name for the rugby team. Aus-Blacks?? Have to be careful with political correctness now days. Could not reverse it!!!
