Yes. The darmah pipes are dual wall so heavier and ID will be reduced but otherwise will fit

My GTS came with stainless headers and a reciept for Darmah pipes. they do not fit, they have insufficient kick up and foul the rear brake shaft,they also make removing the oil filter difficult. Its very possible that they are NOT Darmah. Just be carefull. They will be cut and welded.

If they are stainless then that are not original pipes so can't be compared to for fitment onto anything....

Thats exactly what i'm saying, just because someone says they are Darmah does not mean they are.
