    Default Exhaust Help

    Hi,
    I've fitted a SRI rear bumper last weekend, and just managed to fit the SRI Backbox.

    Is there an adaptor available to make a smaller exhaust pipe (on my 1.8 SXi) bigger to fit the SRI backbox?

    I've done a temporary fix of cutting some pipe and sticking it in the end and sealing with some GunGum, but it's not a permanent solution because the pipe isn't tightened, so the tailpipe is able to move from side to side in the exhaust outlet.

    I've seen some custom made exhaust adaptors on Ebay but they are £14?? you tell them the sizes and they make it.

    But are there some pre-made ones available on retail? or is anyone a master with the pipe and can do one cheaper?

    I couldn't find any at Halfords, so went to another local store and they only did one size (and even the larger end of that was smaller than my small pipe.


    Long story short, I'm after an adaptor of some sort to make my small exhaust pipe, fit the larger pipe'd SRI backbox.

    I don't know the pipe diameters so ANY will will be greatly appreciated.

    Mine is a 52 plate 1.8 SXi
    The backbox is Spoons old one... can't find it on the forum anymore as it's been deleted.

    Thanks
    Dan

    Does anyone know the pipe sizes? so I can contact a few companies and ask around. I found roadrunner http://www.roadrunnermotorsport.co.uk/ so when I get the pipe diameters, I can order one.

    I'm not sure, but an educated guess would be:
    2.5" (63.5mm) then 2.1" (54.0mm) pipe diameter


    Can anyone confirm this, so I can get a pipe ordered.

    Thanks

    Just measured the old backbox I took off, and it had a diameter of about 43mm, but if anyone knows the official measurements that would be very helpful.

    Thanks
