Im 99% sure at least the R8 exhaust back box will fit. I fitted the OE backbox off a 1.8 MGZS to my 220GSI as a cheap mot fix. The ZS mid pipe looked the same as mine, but im not shure of the front flange as i did not need to replace that pipe.

All pipes have arrived. So has Christmas and the lower temperatures, I'll try and get the interior swapped over during the break. Also got an R 25 that needs suspension mods to take it to GTi spec.

Have now fitted the wide bore manifold and Frankensteined the rear pipes and boxes to fit.
Losing power away from the lights and not much more in top of rev range.

After surviving a search expedition into the black hole It feels a little like turbo lag when accelerating from a standstill up to 3000rpm
