Hi All,

Just looking for some information regarding backboxes. Mine is rusty so will need replaced soon. Should this be a case of unclamping the old one and fitting a new one? Or will cutting/welding be needed?
Any recommendations of best place to buy them? I'm not looking for a noisy one, maybe a little bit more sporty though.

Thanks in advance.

If it is the original it will need to be cut. It was originally a one piece exhaust from joint at down-pipe/cat under engine to rear.

As above, if it's the original it will need cutting, most replacements will come with a guide / measurement and it doesn't have to be mm perfect as there's usually a fair bit of room for adjustment on the slip joint of the new one which will just clamp over the existing pipe.

Old one will need to be cut off, but a new one can be Just clamped on. No welding needed.

I bought a Ragazzon kit for mine, got it fitted at my local exhaust specialist for £23.
Is a bit noisy, but I got the one without a muffler. Just straight pipe from the cat backwards.
Ragazzon do offer them with with mufflers too for the aggressive sound without the volume.
Bought from Gazella Racing .com. Great service. They ask for your specific model & vin to make sure they send you one that will fit straight on.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Mine must have had work in the past in that case as there are clamps, the middle section looks pretty new so maybe that was replaced.
