My 110 started life as a TD now its a 200tdi. I have just worked out its a TD exhaust on it. So Is it worth swaping it for a TDi one or waiting till I need to change it and getting a TDi one then?

Also the TD exhaust slips onto the manifold and a clame, the TDi looks like it bolts on. So do I need a bit to go on the turbo houseing as well?

My brother swapped his 2.5na with a disco 200tdi recently, major difference in the diameter of the exhaust and was worth changing. I dont think there should be much difference in diameter between a 200tdi and a turbo2.5, so I would just get a 200tdi down pipe, unless of course the old tubo exhaust is looking tired.
I know that they are not the same, thats why I asked if its worth swaping. Mine is ok right now, but if it gives more speed/power changing it then I would. I am planning to do a side exit in the summer with no boxes!! So It will wait till then.

Before anyone asks, yes it will pass the MOT with no silencers:D

why not use silencers?
you will end up with less power and less mpg unless you tune the engine to suit and this may not be such a good thing either.
Engine has been tuned;) but the auto saps the power. So its lose the silencers so the exhaust gases get out faster and fit a bigger inter-cooler and re-tune:D .

I wouldn't worry, I'm running a 200Tdi witha TD exhaust, no difference. I've driven a 'proper' 200Tdi and it seems the same. There is a problem with the 200 exhausts as the back box is different and it catches mud and rusts off apparently!

The other problem it could solve could the problem of a over heating starting motor. As the TDI down pipe has a heat-rap around it.

But looking in the parts book, theres not a lot between them. Might just get the pipe that replaces the centre box for now.

Makes sense to me Paul, replaced the centre box with a piece of pipe welded on to the old box flanges on my old turbo as the box was shot, gives a nice bark at low revs, cant honestly saw there was any increase in power which god knows I need badly and as you say with a side exit exhaust on the cards I think you would be throwing money/effort away.

The disco 200tdi has a heat sheild attached to the starter motor, have you got this on yours?

I don't remember changing my exhaust for a TDi one on my retrofit, and I've been driving round on it for a year with no problems.
I'm fairly sure the bore of a TD and TDI pipes are the same. the 10 and 12J systems were smaller though.

so paul i would wait untill you get a side exit no silencer jobby. :) thenit'll sound the part too.
