    Back box help

    Hi, i was given a back box but dont know if it will fit a astra Mk4 1998.

    i think it is the first one on this site

    http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/exhausts/performance-exhausts.php

    i was wondering if it would fit a astra mk4? by taking it to a garage or that.

    thanks for any help

    Well from that link - the backbox in a universal jobbie therefore will not fit directly hence the term universal. Any exhaust will fit your car if you have the right amount of know how, resources and money! In this instance it will be a case of manufacturing a pipe and flange and welding it (or joining with a sleeve) to the backbox to fit your car. You would be best taking it to a decent exhaust fabricator if you have one local. Failing that then as a last resort even the guys at kwik fit or similar may be able to sort out something. Personally I'd try to find a custom exhaust place that specialises in these builds on a daily basis - seeing as the back box in question is a s/s one it would be advisable to have the joining pipe made in s/s too - this will prevent any undue corrosion. Good luck - keep us posted and get some pics up of your motor....
