    Default V6 CDTi replacement exhaust

    OK so it looks like I'm gonna need a new exhaust before long on my pre-facelift V6 diesel estate....

    I've done a bit of research on the net and I'm finding it hard to find one so was wondering if anyone here had found a non stealer supplied zorst for this engine?

    I've also considered having a stainless one manufactured at my local Longlife centre, I'm not after any performance gains but wonder what it would sound like with a slightly throatier system. Are there any "back pressure" issues associated with aftermarket diesel exhausts?

    Any input would be appreciated guys, cheers, Jon.

    Turdo diesels don't require much if any back pressure. Thats only really for normally asperiated engines. Spoons had a stainless one fitted to his 1.9 and it sounded really nice. Also cheaper from the £600 for a factory replacement system!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Cheers Big Sig, I figure a stainless on the V6 oil burner might sound nice cos it's a fair bit smoother than the four pot. Will have to get a definite price on a replacement first and go from there!

    No problems. i had a price ages ago for £350ish I seem to remember, from the cat back. You can remove the cat too if you wanted too as its not needed on the diesels, they only do a smoke test, not an emissions one

    £350? Was that for the V6 CDTi? If so not nearly as bad as I thought!

    Yeah it was. Mines the same engine as yours, it was probably about 2 years ago though now.

    I had a quote a few weeks ago...
    Note this is for a hatcback and not an estate, from the diagrams the only difference is the Centre pipe B
    This is part and fitting
    Main back box (nearside) : £85 [or £90 for VX OE part]
    Auxiliary back box (offside) : £115 [or £110 for VX OE part]
    Centre pipe B : £65 [VX OE part only]
    Centre pipe A : £185 [VX OE part only]
    Downpipe (complete) : £340 [VX OE part only]
    Total £790, discounted to £650 [VX OE part only]

    I also got quotes from three different dealerships, and they were all around the £1100 mark
