    Exhaust Trouble MK4

    Im in need of a new backbox, but im going to go with a cat back system.
    I have been looking around performance exhaust websites and i cant seem to find anything for a 2.2. They just seem to go from a 1.4 to a 2.0.
    So does the 2.2 fit the same as the others?

    Also i have read about the gt3 system. But where can i buy one of those? online?

    I'm pretty sure they're the same as the 2.0I............

    I know that for a coupe, the standard backbox for a 2.2 is the same for the 1.8 and turbo.......

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    1.8 and 2.2 systems are interchangeable from the cat back.

    Its the Turbo thats different, not sure about 1.6 etc though.

    I know this because I have a 1.8 and sold my old Powerflow exhaust to a 2.2 owner.

    If you are only replacing the backbox, check what kind of fitment joins it to the middle section. Earlier cars are flange fitmenr and later ones have a sleeve, iirc.
