    Default 2.0 Turbo exhaust question

    Quick question, is the standard exhaust on the 2.0 Turbo just a normal cheapy steel exhaust with chrome tips, or is it stainless steel in any of the parts?

    Ta - thought so but I wasn't sure. I'm just wondering how long it will last - based on the prices I've seen for replacement parts it wants to last the lifetime of the car!

    the boxes have an outer skin ..so even when that falls off the boxes still last a while .
    cheaper to get an MIJ or powerflow replacement when the time comes .

    Good to know - mines not too bad but its corroding around the Y section - looking at some of the prices (£500 plus) makes my wallet twitch a bit!

    I was wondering whether it was a collapsed exhaust baffle that was giving my uneven idle but I think I'll live with it!

    Is that an exhaust or just a length of scaffolding pole!?

    That's all the centre section of the 2.0T looks like.

    I've never looked at anything other than the back boxes! Is there just the one cat at the manifold as well? Seems like a full stainless system is the best option when any part goes
