    Default Duplex exhaust… Twin tail pipes

    Hey all…

    The wife wants her new Vectra to have twin tail pipes like you get on the GSI / 2.2’s etc…

    I was looking on ebay and these seem to be rare to find… I was considering going for a custom job but am not wanting anything which is louder. Most of the custom people I have spoken to say it will be louder which is not great…

    Then I spotted this on World of Vauxhall parts…

    http://www.vauxhallworldparts.com/vauxhall.php?partnumber=93186503&partid=5237

    Yep… it’s pricey but could be the answer to the issue for me…

    So, first question… is this a direct swap for my car or do I need any other parts and second question is does anyone know where I can get one of these cheaper…?

    Car Stats…

    Model: 2004 Vectra Hatch SRI
    Engine: 1.8 16v Z18XE covering 61k

    Thanks in advance.

    For that price you could get a stainless set made up exactly how you want

    Yeah... I was thinking that... It's the noise issue which is worrying me... we want the twin tail pipe look without increasing the volume of the system. The customer manufacturers I have spoke to have all said the noise will increase...

    I think im correct in saying that a resonated system wont, and im sure companies like MIJ can make them to any volume you want.

    ahhhh... ok... So resinated is good then...?

    Unfortunalty MIJ only have one site which would be a 530 mile round trip for me to go to them to have a system fitted...

    I see they can make exhausts using the standard patern... Could they make a full system for me remotly and send it up or is it somethign I need to visit them to have done...

    Failing that can anyone recomend somewhere in Scotlandship to have the work done?
