Re: Cloverleaf front exhaust box
I fitted a new system onto my 2.0 Cloverleaf last month, the system comprised of:
A downpipe from the manifold which goes into the cat (flange), from the cat it went to the complete rear section which slides onto the rear of the cat (Sleeve i believe)..
It sounds like its the same as mine..
What you could do is slide the rear section over the rear of the cat pipe, use exhaust putty/assembly paste then put an exhaust clamp around this (i believe this is the proper way to do it apart from welding).
So as long as the rear of the cat is long enough to slide inside the rear section you shouldnt have any problems..
Now with mine i did the above but the rear of the cat only slid in the rear exhaust section only by about 1" and that wasent enough to get the exhaust clamp around and create a proper seal, so I took it to a garage and got the two sections/joints welded together, only cost about £15. At least I know its done properly and will not come apart now!
