    Backboxes

    My backbox (standard one) is looking a bit ropey and i expect will start blowing soon as it mainly consists of rust.....

    Anyhow, I'm on the lookout for either an irmscher one, or a standard one from a sri turbo or something like that with a bit of a chrome tip. I don't want anything aftermarket as I can't be bothered with it being any louder or any poor fits and that (i've been thro all of that with my corsa's!)

    Main reason for posting, is to query whether the exhaust bores differ throughout the engine range, or are they all the same. I've got an X18XE1 in mine, and some of the irmscher ones i've seen originated on 2.0's or 2.2's, so I want to make sure they fit.

    Also, do the sri turbo backboxes come with a chrome type tip, or have all the pics I've seen been aftermarket jobbies....

    Any help is appreciated!

    The sri Turbo has a chrome tip, the same as the coupe's exhaust.
    But they won't fit as the turbo exhaust bore is bigger than yours, also the 2.2 is a bigger bore.
    Your best bet is either a irmscher one or a remus one which looks good aswell.
