    Hi Folks.

    Local scrappy has a 2.0ltr hatchback Vec 2004 model i think with 2 intact back boxes on it.

    You will need a step down connector for the front pipe to mate it to the centre pipe. IIRC External dia of the 1.8 front pipe is 45mm and internal dia of the 2.0T is 54mm.

    Thanks Das. Take it an exhaust place would be able to source the down connector or would i get it online.. also was wondering would this affect car performance i.e would it upset engine output etc...

    Plenty places on ebay do step down connectors in custom sizes, pretty cheaply too. I have a new front pipe up in the attic, I will take measurements for you.

    I doubt it will upset anything. TBH I cant figure out if it will make the 1.8 breath more freely(and free up a few bhp along the way) or not. The normal 1.8 system is 1 back box and 1 centre box, the 2.0T system is just 2 back boxes. Maybe someone knows if its that makes for a freer flowing system.

    Or to make it even easier.

    BTW best I can figure you'd need a 45mm inner and a 55mm outer. Think thats right, anyone?
