The lack of the 2/1 front pipe does drop a little power but it won't affect the running. The rest of the systm is the same as the turbo diesel. The original tailpiped box hasn't been available for years.
I have zero patience for your tedium.

I discovered that the 8V GTI exhaust downpipe has a different bend in it to the 16V device.
The rest of the systems are the same, save the tail pipe trim. (except on early 16Vs where they did not have the shiny trim)

The 16V downpipe pipe is too low on an 8V car. I have not tried it the other way around, so may-be it won't fit at all.

Instead of replacing the downpipe, you probably can weld a new baffle in place. The main pipe seems to last forever.
