    Hi guys,

    I have a question related to the exhaust system between a Civic 2003 Type-S and a Type-R.
    Does an aftermarket Type-R (EP3) backbox fit my Type-S (EV1) ?
    I have attached an image that reflects the original parts (and part numbers).

    The part numbers I checked on onlineautomotive.co.uk were different for the Type-R and the Type-S. So unfortunately I'm guessing not but in good news the Type-S backbox is a lot cheaper.

    Turns out the tail pipe I fitted to our Type-S was off a Type-S sport 1.6... fitted but only after flange adjustment as previously described....

    In the above diagram the hangers are different. Also the Type-S genuine tail pipes are angled downwards and have no stainless steel covers...

    Type-R and Type-S backboxes fit perfectly (same geometry, same flanges).
