hello,
Mulling over the idea of putting my exhaust back to stock. My scorpion is too loud!
The stock one I took off was rusted and I threw it away. The stock tail pipes exited horizontally and were sort of rounded box in x-section, and quite large.
looking from the side:

The dilema I have is that all the other un-modded VR6's I've seen have these crappy pencil / pee-shooter exhausts that exit downwards with circular pipes.
looking from the side:

Can we still get the original items?
Cheers,

Re: back to stock exhaust...? (Golfather)

I'm sure it was deffo a genuine part....
It was one complete part from the suitcase up to the tailpipe!!!! I had to cut it in half to get it off the car!! There was no join between the suitcase and the back box.
The only other way to get it off would have been to undo all the shocks etc.
The quality of the exhaust wasnt Kwik Fit... much too complex a build and heavy with layers of baffles on the outside etc.
Cheers,
Jules
PS this is a 93. maybe they changed it after 93? dunno...
I think I may have a pic somewhere of the tailpipes so I'll post it up soon.

Re: back to stock exhaust...? (jcorallo)

here is a graphic that shows what mine used to be like:
The ends of the tailpipes are all one piece. parts 2 and 5. They are extruded into that shape.
the part number is 1H6 253 609 C and the one thats on vwparts.com is 1H6 253 609 AF - so I assume this one has the crappy tail pipes?

Re: back to stock exhaust...? (Golfather)

thanks for the offer of the back box, but i'd rather shave my nuts with an angle grinder than fit one of those!!! at least the old one i had was cool looking!!
I'll ask at eurocarparts to see if they can get me one.
Cheers,
Jules

Re: back to stock exhaust...? (Golfather)

quote:[HR][/HR]Strange just checking your part numbers on ETKA and the part number you quote for your rear box (C) is for a Golf 2.0 16v.
If its a VR6 rear box, it should have a R at the end of it.
Is your car a conversion? Or has someone installed a 2.0 16v system on it ?(coz they are the same bore)
Cheers

Those numbers could be wrong, but I've noticed that the gti and vr6 use the same back box with lame pee-shooter tail pipes pointing down - same bore and everything.
