    Not sure, may need a reducer of sorts between the centre pipe and backbox - personally I'd try to stick to the same size piping as you already have, but I'm a picky sod as you probably know, and I'd be marginally dubious of losing power by having overly large pipework - might be nothing to worry about on the backbox though, unsure.

    Not 100%, I think the 1.6/1.8 may share the same sizes, and the 2.0/2.2 use a larger one then bigger again on the turbo's but never checked.
