    Hi mate... i dont think that a diferent back box would make any diference to start up. Perhaps if its a diesel, ive heard they can be affected by aftermarket exhausts.... but mainly full systems. But... if your sure its the exhaust you can get one from most places but i'd say vauxhall boxes are the best standard ones. Think you should get the car checked if its not starting well..... Ive just put a new alternator on mine, more money ££
