    Default Twin tailpipes on a diesel?

    Has anybody converted their diesel to twin tailpipes a la V6 / 2.2?

    I do like the look of the twin tailpipes, has anybody done this conversion?

    yes mate, done mine this year, although not fitted the factory VX dual exit, the job is very straight forward and mine was simply a swap of the rear section.

    Hi where did you get just the rear silencer box with twin pipes? You say it is not VX I have an estate and would like to fit this mod. I have fitted XP rear skirt so it would look good on my car.

    Sorry mate missed your reply,.. I had mine cistome made at Rebel Powerpipes in Barton upon Humber (near Hull but on the south bank). Took two hours or so and £280. Custom made to the car. Asked for no increase in sound, has a slight boom at about 3500rpm, but sounds nice and smooth ... great job

    LOL, i'm a man from the hills, never showered, never will.

    If you get the right 2.2 from a station you won 't need the Y piece. Its just the twin back exhaust.
