    Default Magnex XSVV04/R system on 2.0 Turbo??

    I've been holding off for long enough now and my factory fitted zorst is going to need replacing before the next MOT in September. I've seen quite a few mentions of the Magnex dual system offered by Roadrunner Motorsport and wondered if anyone has fitted one of these to their 2.0 Turbo (pre-facelift)?

    I see the Magnex system has a centre box where as the factory fitted system doesn't. Is the Magnex a direct replacement for the factory fitted system or will extra pipework be needed to mate the system to the car??

    Regards

    Well I just managed to answer my own question. I emailed Roadrunner and the reply back was that they have instock the Magnex system specific for the the 2.0Turbo. I spoke to Charlotte of Roadrunner and she convinced me that I just would not be able to live without the new system. So..... it arrives on Wednesday. My first ever modification to the car

    As a slight aside, I also spoke with my insurance company and told them of my intentions and they have advised me that it will add an extra 20Quid a year to my premium as it's classed as a performance modification.

    No sleepless nights with anticipation as I'm working nights until Wednesday morning.

    Regards

    Nidge.

    Default It's already here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've just woken up, having come home from work at 4am this morning, with a dreadful virus type thing, feeling very carp, and a courier van has just left leaving me with my new zorst.

    I'm very impressed with the service from Roadrunner Motorsport, I only ordered it yesterday at 4pm yesterday.

    No pics as yet as it's propped up in the kitchen, wrapped in miles of bubble wrap and stuff. If I have the strength I'll be popping down to my mechanic guy a little later to arrange fitting.

    Will update.

    Regards

    Default Quick Pic

    Well I just couldn't let it sit there wrapped up looking like some kind of mummy. So I thought I try and get an idea of how it will look. I didn't really appreciate how big the tailpipes are

    It's now booked to be fitted 1st thing Thursday Morning.

    Here's a pic of it off the car, once fitted another pic will be forthcoming.

    Regards

    hi i just noticed your exhaust i too purchased one of the same a couple of years ago for my 2.2 direct but on the one i purchased the pipe from the centre box to the cat is a solid tube about 2 foot long and i cannot see it fitting my car,as this factory fitted part of the exhaust has bends and a sensor fitted but i notice on the exhaust you have this pipe in 3 sections which would mean me not having to remove all this section of
    the old exhaust every one i have asked about this all tell me the same it should fit, i also asked my local garage if they would fit it but they refused
    regards

    Hi

    I had mine fitted locally (I'm in Otley). There are two options when fitting.

    1. Use the centre box

    Or

    2 Use the 2 1/2 foot pipe instead, I chose to go with the centre box, and the pipe, which you can see to the right of the exhaust was surplus to requirements.

    I'm surprised that the garage you have asked to fit the system has declined as it would be the easiest money they would make, the system just goes together so easily.

    Regards
