exhaust blow.

Hello there. i have a blow in my exhaust and need a new mid section. i have a 2002 80bhp punto 16v sporting and was wondering if i could get hold of a 2002 punto 8v mid exhaust would this changer the performance at all and would it fit as on mine there is a mid silencer and on the 8v there isn't. also would it change the emissions some how?

Thanks alot Steve

Re: exhaust blow.

this is the 16v exhaust diagram
http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/exhausts...p?recordID=634

this is the 8v exhaust diagram
http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/exhausts...p?recordID=633

you can see the diameters and shapes and sizes are the same, the only difference is the middle box and the mount in front of it.

the middle box doesnt affect emissions, it is only there to reduce noise.
the mount on the 8v isnt needed so dont worry that it would not attach to anything.

in my opinion you can fit the 8v exhaust, the diagrams strongly suggest it will be a direct fit, and it should give you a better noise too.

Re: exhaust blow.

it wont affect mpg.

your local exhaust fitter is often cheapest, although if you plan to DIY fit (which is easy if you can raise the car safely) you can get them cheap on ebay, for example here is the 16v centre section for 56.85 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FIAT-Punto-II-...QQcmdZViewItem
