    Default My new twins!

    Well twin exhausts haha

    finally got a dual exit after a long long long time of wanting!

    seems to have a lower note on idle, and pull smoother

    Looks nice, but I can't help thinking that Opel will have spent quite a lot of time and money designing the exhaust system to best suite each engine, and that therefore spliiting the flow from a single exhaust to two may adverseley effect your cars performance???

    Whilst making an exhaust too free-flowing can reduce torque, most of the OP's exhaust still has the same diameter pipe. You're also assuming that Opel produced the optimum set up - they did, but only within a specified cost limit. If you remove the cost-restriction, as many people on here do, you can certainly improve the car's performance by changing it, not just detract from it.

    I have long wondered if the sound and tone were different with the dual set up over stock as I assume the 2.0or 2.2 baffles are different internally,,,

    Thanks for the comment lads,

    I know what you mean about changing stock parts, however as stated, I'm sure a single exit is far cheaper to fit in mass production than a dual, and also i doubt they would offer as an option if it would hamper optimum performance. The diameter of pipe is the same up to the y piece, then the 2 pipes to boxes are slighty slimmer.

    The parts I got from eBay! Back pipe and boxes, direct replacement from a 2.2
