    Smile magnex dual for 1.9cdti?

    Could someone please tell me if magnex ever made a dual exit system that directly fits the 1.9cdti?

    I know that one is available for the petrol engined cars but would it fit no modifications to the diesel?

    Many Thanks

    Russell

    Pretty sure it was a universal exhaust that fitted all of the Vecs. Pm bigmac, he fitted the single magnex to a DTi (identical set up)

    Got it fitted in the end. The magnex stepped down at the end to fit a smaller diameter as the per the 1.8 has. I cut the stepped down section off and it then just fitted over the pipe that comes out of the cat which is a nice snug fit!

    I also found that the tailpipes stuck out a mile at the back, almost a 3/4in to far but i've modified it to sit more inline with the rear skirt

    I'll have to get some pics up!

    However

    Did you take any pics while installing it i.e. how much you cut off and the adjustments you had to make??

    No pics of installing it, i actually de-catted it while i was at it. I cut 20mm of the rear connection before the y-piece to reduce the amount the tailpipes stuck out!

    Not to sure, the guy before had a 1.8 but he needed an adaptor to fit as his pipework was too small?? The pipework on the magnex slides over that on the 1.9 150, its tight but it does
