    what backbox do i have? (Pics)

    been looking at astra irmscher backboxs on ebay, and it looks differnt to mine, but not sure if its just me, looking on ebay the tailpipe bits seem very long on the astra irmscher backboxs.

    so, what backbox do i have?

    thanks.

    There definately irmscher tailpipes but not 100% on the box itself, looking at the welds I'd say it was a custom job but unsure what car it would fit......

    it looks abit like a corsa D backbox maybe.

    it came off a corsa c, but wasnt a perfect fit and wasnt made for that car, iv just thought actually, will there not be a part number on the exhaust i can search?

    If there is a part number somewhere on the exhaust (good luck finding if there is one!) then you should be able to match it on the Irmscher website or LMF vauxhall or something. I dont think it will be a Vectra, and size I say Corsa or similar. The weld on the tailpipe seems to be custom, as Irmscher are pretty neat and are all painted black.

    i found the part number, put it in google and got this!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Irmsc...09182001r38618

    so to those that said Corsa C, tigra or mk3 astra, welldone!

    it isnt fitted on the car yet, how hard do you think it will be to make fit? :\

    I would think you have to redo the hangers, as they may not fit (be to short) back box could be to short to your centre pipe. Only real way is measure up the backbox and the car and check measuresments and see what work is involved
