hey cheers for the info h8v but it was more the difference in dimensions I was after(if there is any) im guessing the later gti one would be the best flowing one??? also does anyone know if klarius are decent exhausts? as in sound/fit/flow and longitivity?

The 8v will have a 2 inch bore, 16v 2.25 inch bore. Carb models and very early GTI had a different downpipe held on by clips with a manifold to match.  If you want an 8v GTI exhaust, standard flows fairly well but make sure you get a decent brand like Bosal or Walker or even better, genuine if you can find one.

I think I have a gSf back box in my shed aswell as the custom powerflow. You can buy either off me if you want them.

The jetex fitment on my gl was shocking. Had to cut the mounts off and re attached for it to hang straight
