    Whats a Flange Between Friends

    Ok so I messed up.

    Iv been carrying a sleave fitment backbox in my boot for the last two months, when I Currently have a Flange Fitment Backbox on the car.

    What are my options with regards to getting this fitted? Or should I Just Scrap the idea?

    Do I go out and buy a Center Section? If so is there anything cheaper than a Remus?

    The Backbox is secondhand from a W Reg 1.8SRI, so i just assumed it would fit without checking

    SPEC:
    2000
    SXI
    3 Door
    1.8 16V
    X18XE1
    and a flange not a sleave

    The Astra 1.8s came with both flange and sleeve fitment (not at the same time!) It may relate to production plant.

    I recall that an adapter is available but I can't remember where from or which way it works.

    as above - adaptors are available - think LMF used to do em - cant quite recall though, and as to which way they work.

    If u really want it then just get ur self down to a decent custom exhaust fabricator and get them to cut/shut the pipe and weld on a suitable flange.

    Just a thought, could I cut the Flange off the center section?

    Or will it leave it to short? Anybody done this?

    You can buy an adapter from Vauxhall but itis the wrong way round for it. IE sleeve centre to flange backbox fitment.
    Its a jam thing

    I got a powerflow centre section made up with a large silencer, thats with a standard backbox for a coupe i have a coupe.

    Quiet like nearly standard then when you put your foot down its throaty but still quiet.

    Im well happy.

    I had a sleeve backbox n a flange coupe.

    Feels torquier now aswell

    PS about the remus racing centre section.

    I wouldnt bother before i had the silencer fitted it sounded so tinny it was shite.
