    Default Whats the difference in Petrol and Diesel exhausts?

    So, does anyone know what the differences in back boxes are on petrol's and oil burners? Is it just a plumbing up difference or are the internals different?

    Mmm, interesting, cheers for that. The outer skin has just fallen off my SRi box and exposed a nice hole. Any idea on dealer price of a back box?

    Rushy their is a difference in the 2 exhaust's - the back box's on the CDTi's are empty, nothing in them at all but the petrol one's have silencer's in them. the reason i know this is when some of the guy's were getting their dual system's fitted to their CDTi's up here the fella who was fitting the system's cut the back box's open to show us they are totally empty
