Yeah Dave is good. If it is like a mini backfire, it is probebly just a hole in the exhaust. That was my problem. Hmmm, get dave to take a look.
A new exhaust would always solve it, A nice growling lukey perhaps, Hahahahaha.

Yeah it'll be a hole somewhere, possibly a crack down a section of the pipe that's letting air in to the exhaust to burn any unburnt fuel that's headed down the exhaust...

If you need to replace the exhaust - go the two inch :twisted:

Yeah, I understand, Dad and i are finding it hard to justify spending money at the moment. And Mum and Dad both have Dr in front of their names.

Do what I did all through uni - buy something useful or something you really need and go without something else to make ends meet. Save the same way for big items. Worked a treat and I'm still having a relatively good time at the moment. A job would help out a lot more but then again, I wouldn't have any time to do anything... I need sponsorship :p

That's what I'm trying to do, but before I can do that I'm trying to save up a kind of emergency buffer for if something goes really bad...trying being the operative word since this car keeps taking it all! :???:

2 inch from the Y pipe back has always been on the list, but I'm not sure if I'd get away with it being a P plater and all, cops on the road might consider it a performance mod? or they might just not like the noise, pull me over and see my missing wing mirror as well :o

So what you need is a new exhaust without paying for it. A muffler is a muffler and pipe is pipe, if you're a half inventive lad they don't need to be the exact right parts for an MY wagon.

Go to your friendly local exhaust shop and ask for a quote on a fully sik new exhaust. On your way out ask if you can have a quick scavenge in their scrap bin. Or go there after dark and go scavenging without asking.

Tips, council depots, fire training grounds and hooning/dumping areas in the bush (at the edge of every town, guaranteed) are also good sources of free car parts.

Good luck with it.

Bloody oath :cool:. I've used every place mentioned.

And there's actually one more that I forgot - empty lots in light industrial areas. Not so much for car parts, but scrap timber and steel.

gumtree is great as well, I see standard subaru impreza turbo exhaust systems all the time for around the hundred dollar mark. 99% of those systems are 2.25 inch and have been taken of in place of a 3 inch system. The steel is much better than the normal mild steel you get from exhaust shops as well.

A little bit of ingenuity, welding and cutting is all that is needed to get a 2inch + system on your wagon.

An example for 50 dollars in WA (sorry)

everything from the cat back (in this case a dump pipe as well)

The replacement has to be in better condition than the one it's replacing :mrgreen: I'll ring around first, an MY rear exhaust section can't be that hard to find surely.

Well, so much for that :roll: I am hopeless, so slack I couldn't even get a muffler that didn't annoy the crap out of me. Well since I'll be needing a whole new system for my car one day I decided not to spend money on a new one. And today I found out why it rattled so badly! Got around to removing the system today and was impressed at how much it had deteriorated inside. I want to cut it open now and have a look inside :)
