So I've blown a hole in my front pipe on a 1.6 cvh engine but can't find the correct one to fit it is there something obvious I'm missing

No the exhaust pipe just after the manifold where it goes from two pipes into one

Ah. The actual down pipe then.

As far as I know. It's standard on both early and late model mk2's.

I might still have a good second hand one in my shed somewhere.
I'm never going to use it. If I can ever find it!

Jason.

I been looking online and there seems to be loads of variants and none that match mine I'm wondering if it's a cut and shut exhaust system I'll post a link to a picture of it on facebook

OK update on problem I found a xr3i in stock at my local motor factors (romac) had a look it's short by a few inches but on the straight part so going to extend it at work and job done
