    Mid Silencer???

    Hey guys,

    Ok im new on here! My name is Remus so please call me by my name and not my plate lol (R12MUS)

    Quick story:

    Owned a peugeot 206 - Crashed Writen off 50% my fault
    Fiat Punto Mk2 - Crashed Not written off lol 0% My fault it was parked and someone hit my car whilst they were parking! lol

    Ok i still have my mk2 punto and i am selling it on ebay now and gumtree. I am looking to buy an astra mk4 for defo.. The only car i want to buy, but it has to be the 2.0 SRI lol i dont want anything else but that. hopefully i will get it in the next week or so as the auction finishes soon.

    Now i use to be on Fiat Forum and i am still a big part in there and i have the biggest threads on there too! i Did so much to my car myself yet i still spent over £6 grand on the car that includes buying it lol

    Now i want a mk4 astra and as i have done so much to my car that i have atm, i want to make the astra stand out but look sublte at the same time!

    I have a few questions on the astra

    1. does it have a mid silencer box? I know it has a cat and rear back box but is there another silencer on it?

    2. How long does the 2.0 SRI last for on average??? If i get one at 90,000 miles how long do you think it will last for? is it 140,00 or 120,00??? i duno?

    3. How low have you guys slammed the car to the ground to? 60mm?? and whats a safe amount? 30mm?

    Thanks guys

    Remus

    Hold on that doesnt make sence??? Do you mean it doesnt have a mid box and you took the centre pipe from an sri because it didnt have it or yes it does have a mid box and thats why you put a straight through pipe lol sorry if im just dumb lol

    Also where is the Cat??? is it nearier the manifold?

    I havent got my car yet so i cant have a look??

    Thanks guys

    I believe it has the cat after the manifold down pipe, which goes to the centre silencer and ends up at the rear bacbox. I think these cars can safely do 30mm drop but I have seen 60mm and they are fine (i think). The 2 litre N/A engine is only marginally better then the 1.8 engine. Thats probably why it was discontinued. Hope that helps
