    Question Exhaust pipe?

    Hi there,

    I've just fitted an SRI bumper to my Vectra as its an LS and wanted it to look a bit more sporty Well, now this is fitted the exhaust looks a bit strange!!

    Do SRI's have different exahust pipes to the Non-SRI's? If so, what part is it that I need? As you can tell from the image, the backbox is on its way out with rust so will be needing to replace this in a month or so anyway.

    Thanks

    Spot on mate, thanks! How much is a standard backbox/pipe replacement? Just wondering what the price difference is between them.

    Or you could just buy a clamp on tip for about a 20 quid. same outcome just cheaper.
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-1-4-INCH-OVA...es_CarParts_SM

    Just cut back your old tip back a bit past where it bends down and then clamp the oval tip on. Job done.
    Take you ten minutes witha hacksaw and 1 minute to bolt it on.
