exhaust Q
« on: 02 November 2010, 20:36 »
just wondered if the post cat pipework was the same on all the 2wd motors?.. i.e same diameter and joins in the same places (2.25" for the 1.8t)

the centre section on the 1.8t has a silencer box the 1.9 gttdi is a straight through pipe and does fit in place of the resonated box both are 2.25 diameter not sure if there are any difference's in the rear box hope this is a start ta andy

great reply infact. just the info i was after. does the td pipe clamp to the cat in the same way too as in it uses a separate joiner. not that i want to use a td pipe was just looking for a new exhaust but trying to find one that wasnt labeled 1.8t (you know, lets add a 1er to that price  kinda 1.8t).
also, what difference would replacing the resonater with the td pipe make?..

Yeah the td pipe fit's the same as the 1.8t ,the theory I'm going with(and this is my theory so could be wrong) the td pipe should hopefully flow a bit better than the resonated 1.8t pipe as it has no restrictions it's a bit of a try it and see at the minute but it was cheap to buy at around £18 for the pipe  but  that is trade price not sure what the retail was I think somewhere around 30-35 non genuine plus clamps if you need to replace them
