P2 16V standard exhaust / back box.

Post by frog »

I'm just wondering what the original for my car would have looked like.
Do I remember reading something about it being black? Was the tailpipe like so? Image

I'm pretty sure it was black, slightly oval, and horizontal.

That's a Walker aftermarket one. I've got one on the 16v, though I've painted it black. It's a slimmer oval than the OE one.

I've got the OE one in the garage. Baffles have all gone from it but I'm keeping it for the future :oops:

You say that like it's a bad thing :wink:

My one pictured above is a ripe old 18 years old (got the invoice somewhere), has no baffles either and sounds great :lol:

I always try to get the most out of an exhaust too - this is what the back box on the GS looked like when I finally decided to change it:

/\ That definately is 'exhausted'

I've got just a bog standard down-pointing one on my 16v. I've never seen a different style here. I googled Citroen BX16v exhaust and this came up. Some people have got too much time on their hands

Jesus, that is exhaust twattery at its best, haha :)

Looks like the piccy of the black valver is sporting a diesel exhaust, they always turn downwards, i presume to reduce the smoke that pisses out of them when booting it :)

It's just a standard backbox. It's only the ph2 16v that uses anything different.
