    Default 3.0 diesel back box's on 2.0 turbo?

    As above will the back box's from a 3.0 diesel be suitable to use on my 2.0 turbo petrol, or are they not suitable?

    Cheers guy's

    (Hopefully I have this the right way round)... If anything they will be better and diesel silencers are less restrictive by nature and would help your 2.0T breathe a bit better. As for bore widths anything can fit to anything with the right pipe connectors

    From memory, the 2.0T, 2.2 direct and 3.0 CDTi V6 right hand silncers are the same anyway. As long as you don't go down to a small diamter pipe, you should be fine.

    Thanks guy's - i was more worried about what was actually inside the 3.0 box's(if anything) as when the exhaust fitter cut open a 1.9CDTi box when some of the guys were getting duplex it was totally empty

    Matt - im going to buy another centre section from VX so same bore pipe also do you have the part numbers for both the left and right back box handy as i left my copy at work

    Does anyone know the bore of the 3.0 diesel exhaust system? I have read the other day the 2.0T is 2.25", so is the 3.0 the same bore??
