The downpipe fit perfect with no modification, i modified the wastegate flange for a vband tial wastegate, but is not necessary. I just recommend running a tial/precision wastegate.

+1 x 1,000!

The wastegate is overlooked too often IMO. If that thing gets stuck closed, good-bye engine!

My SRT kit came with a cheapo and I replaced it after one season. It was making me paranoid

I can't say they'll fit for sure but TiAL makes 2 models with square flanges:
TiAL Sport - F41
I think one is for a Porsche tho.... might still work.

Oddly enough, I traded my waste gate to the guy who cut off the square flange and welded on the v-band. "Free" labor
On the plus, TiAL's come with the v-band flange and clamp ...it's also not hard to find someone to do it for you. Just call some exhaust or custom shops who have a TIG welder.

p.s.: Just another bonus of the v-band is they're easy to clock so you can get your dump tube mounted in any position

Try HKS since it is a HKS style wastegate. Or get in touch with XS power and ask them, which HKS wastegate they made theirs after?
