Help 156 Exhaust Issue - New box needed?

Hi all,

2003 (53 Plate) Alfa 156 1.9JTD Turismo

The exhaust is blowing a lot and I'm noticing a lack of power when pulling away. Lifting the clutch to biting point and applying the gas and she's very very sluggish, the engine isn't revving in the low range enough it seems and it can take a few seconds for her to kick in.

Otherwise the car is running fine, there's no warning lights on.

I'm presuming I'll need a new exhaust and a good service to change filters etc?

The exhaust has never been changed and I believe my mechanic muttered something about it last service.

Can anyone recommend where I might pick up a new exhaust at best price? Is Ebay a decent source?

I have a JTD on its original exhaust too. It has just started blowing but is only evident when the engine switches off and the last puff is heard.
I'd check to see if you can get away with just part of the system being replaced as opposed to the whole, the latter will cost hundreds, even off eBay. Ring around for quotes before settling on a price too.
Diesel engine exhausts go on forever so it might be the flexi pipe which is quite cheap.

156 Exhaust

I have an exhaust box of a 156 1.9JTD which I bought from Autolusso as i thought that I needed a new one but it didn't turn out to be the case so if you need another one you can have this one for 50 if you collect it from near Mansfield.
