    Default Exhaust

    Got a problem with one of the back boxes on my '04 2.0t petrol vec as it has a huge rusting hole in it!!!

    Can anyone tell me if you can just change one of the back boxes or do i need to replace both up to the mid section?

    If I have to replace both sides can anyone recommend what to get i.e. stick with vx std or get a magnex - be helpful with approximate costs too please.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for that - i dont suppose you know how much it is for a powerflow system and are you replacing the whole system or just the back boxes?

    TIA

    yep, they are double skinned cans, but they rust inside out, so if the outer one is holed, the inner isn't far off..

    My Powerflow system - single exit, from cat on manifold back was £360

    That included stainless flexible section & installing threaded bushing for oxygen sensor.

    It does vary between areas so worth checking
