    Vehicle : 9-3 Wagon

    Engine : TID (1.9 16v)

    Not as simple as one box and the Y mate. The left box is different to a single left box in that the pipework is about half the size to help keep back pressure and equalise the pressure to the other box. I just put a 2.0T rear section on my single 2.2. All I did was cut my old system off before the Y and replace it with the 2.0T rear system.

    There is a how to that I wrote for this very conversion.

    You need to keep your original left hand silencer, then use the 2.0T right hand box and fit a Y piece, Irmscher is the best place for this as they already have one for this conversion.

    It is very easy.

    I just clamped mine with some exhaust putty as the 2.0T centre section is larger than the stock 2.2 50mm

    Do they smoke equally? As I mentioned, the pipe on the stock left hand 2.0 box is like a pea shooter compared to my stock single 2.2 one.

    Yes they do pretty much, they act in the same was as a car which has them fitted at the factory.

    My last 1.9 150 Vectra and my current Signum 1.9 150 have both had the conversion and they smoke pretty evenly on tick over but under throttle, any smoke you may expect is equal both sides.
