    Default New this forum i need opinions on exhaust

    Hello people im new to this forum, your all gonna wanna shoot me down as im currently a memba on the rs2000-16v site and the rsownersclub, but im also a vauxhall fan at heart being its been in the family.

    Right down to business, i currently own a 2.2 elite and im wanting to do some subtle mods to it, ive bought the rear lights with the smoked indicator, side repeaters, front smoked lights but what i want to know is can i fit the twin pipe rear exhaust section that are found on the the 2.2 sri and the 2ltr turbo vectra's.

    If so can people point me in the right direction, would i need to mod a few things,

    also is there anything i can do i.e re-map to get more from the 2.2

    I,m guessing its a deisel then as only one pipe ..
    twin exits can be added ...you just need to buy a new insert for the rear ...usually the hangers are there already ..so just a case of finding an exhaust or getting a S/S one made up ..
    Theres one on ebay of mine which might fit and I live in Essex

    Sorry people i havent replied due to me being at work, my car is a 2.2 petrol elite, and only has one back box, i want to fit the twin pipes fitted to the sri and gsi i believe, is it a case of un-bolt the old system and bolting up the new one, ive seen a 2ltr turbo twin pipe system on ebay but did sell. Would the 2 ltr turbo system bolt onto my elite.

    On another note what mods are out there for the 2.2 elite petrol engines, im more used to the ford scene and not really looked into detail with the vauxhalls
