    well i juts had a look under the car and found that both the hangers for the centre box have snapped so if the whole centre section on the 2.2 direct will fit on mine without no probs then im laughing. any luck with your mate dropping it off???

    You wont have no problems mate in the way of performance as the 2.2 Direct has a tad more power and torque anyway so all should be fine

    I fitted the 2.0T system to my none direct 2.2. Yep the box is huge, and the Turbo system doesn't have a centre box at all. All I did was to cut my system just after the fuel tank, cut the twin system in the same place, notch it and slide it over my centre pipe and clamp it down with some exhaust putty. Works perfect and no welding needed.

    Yes mate, the bore on the 2.0T system was larger, this is why I cut the notches in the larger system so I could clam it down on the smaller pipe.
