    Default Twin Exits???

    Evening all, Im after converting my single exit exhaust on my facelift SRi to a twin/dual exit. Can anyone tell me if I could source the parts second hand and if so would it be cheaper than the deal a member on here can get for a new system for £290ish? where do I start looking for second hand bits?

    Thanks

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    I converted my single to a twin mate, dead easy. All I did was cut my centre section and clamp the twin system on. Cost me £60 for a 2.0T from scrappies but I'd usually expect to pay nearer £100

    Just looked at your profile, "aircraft engineer" LOL, you should have no probs, the 2.0T bore was larger than my 2.2 bore, so a couple of slots grinded into the end of the pipe worked well for clamping. All the hangers are already on your car no matter if it as a twin fitted or not.

    I never said a full system, I said a new system i.e brand new parts.

    I reckon fitting would be a piece of p*** mate, I have loads of tools if needed. Cheers for the info on the mounts, didnt realise that. Result, one less job to do!
