    confused twin exhausts idea ?

    As above i want to put dual exits on my sri vectra i know you can buy the set up from a 2.2 but i was thinking about buying a single back box flipping it over so efectively becomes a right handed one then re welding the brackets into the right place if needed and then welding in a Y piece to make the second exhaust functional ???? has anyone else done this or is it easier to buy the whole set up bearing in mind i am an engineer and the welding i can do in work ?

    dont think that would work as the underside of the boxes are a different shape i think you can pick up center and both backboxes from a scrap yard for around £100-£120

    as above the shape of the box wouldn't allow you to flip it over, there would also be all manor of cutting and welding needed. You could buy the right hand box and y piece of ebay though and get cracking with a welder, I considered this before finding a 2.2 middle and rear boxes down my local breakers.

    I went the custom stainless steel exhaust route. More expensive but sexy as hell ;D (about £700 total, £500 for exhaust on 0% finance though.)

    I converted my single exhaust Veccy C 1.8 with standard no-holes rear bumper... Into a Mid-Sport Stainless Steel Quad Port Dual Exhaust System (2 exhaust ports on each side of the car), with the SRI bumper and Dual hole valance.

    I should really get some new pictures now that it's sunny to show everyone ;o
