13/05/2003 21:58:30   melissa   i have been trying to buy a new back box for my 95..i say trying as so far i have had to send 6 back !from two different companies, it appears they use a standard section then bash it along one area, this pulls the metal away from the sides and makes it leak, so beware faulty exhausts..give em a good blow test before fitting, and does anyone know where i can get one that doesn't leak?

The most recent rear box that I've bought came from EuroCarParts and was probably made by Bosal and I'm not aware of any problems with it. Whether Euro are still selling Bosal units I couldn't say as the centre pipe I got from them a couple of months ago was manufactured by some other outfit (possibly Finnish). I've found that the Bosal 'cow-horn'front boxes have a horrible habit of prematurely fracturing around the weld where the downpipe is joined to the collecting box.

16/05/2003 08:08:10   melissa   yes, all made by Bosal..whose most recent comments on the leaks is that the seams will seal up with carbon deposits once used..i am not that clued up on exhausts but I'm sure they shouldn't leak before you put them on!thanks for feedback
