Sold - Opel Manta 2" Big Bore Exhaust System - £75

On offer are parts for a large bore rally exhaust system for the Opel Manta B series and Opel Ascona B series. They is no branding but the main resonator box has a label marked "Opel Manta Coupe 2000".

It is made from heavy gauge mild steel, finished in a silk black finish and the overall diameter is 2", I believe the factory fitted exhausts were slightly smaller at 1 7/8". The system comprises; a manifold / downpipe section, a main silencer box with over axle pipe and a rear resonator box with straight tail pipe. Both resonator boxes are fitted with skidded braces to provide additional impact protection to cope with the rigours of fast road and rally driving. The front pipe section has been modified, the original purchaser chose to customise it by incorporating a large cherry bomb silencer. In my opinion, it's all a bit of a dog's dinner and illustrates the dangers of over confidence with a MIG welder.

The parts were originally bought for someone's aborted Opel Manta A series custom project, although the markings and configuration lead me to believe that this is an Opel Manta Coupe / Ascona B series system. I know there are small differences between the coupe and hatchback variants, so please study the pictures closely and ask questions if it helps you make certain you are buying the appropriate part.

Given the rarity and desirability of these all too hard to find parts I have priced these parts at £75 which includes delivery costs within the UK. Similar items are listed on eBay for around £180 for a complete system.

Due to weight and incompatibility issues with left hand drive vehicles this part is only available to UK based buyers.
Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need.
