Exhaust for 16V
The lozenge shaped silencer on my lowered '97 2.0 16V has taken a bit of a bashing and needs replacing. I noticed a 'full' Ansa system on Ebay recently at a tempting price and bought it, but now I have a problem.
I should have investigated the parts catalogue first, as there are two systems listed for my car (even after specifying precise chassis number). My original is all of a piece from just behind the cat, where it joins with a 'U' type clamp. the Ansa works with the other system, where it joins behind the first silencer with a flange.
Checking through the parts CD, it appears I'd have to replace the front silencer, cat and front pipe to get the Ansa system to fit; the only common parts are the header and some of the bracketry.
These aren't parts you usually see advertised, so does anyone know of a way to join the two systems (that is, withot recourse to a custom pipe maker).
