Can you combine turbo exhaust parts with NA?

Can you combine turbo exhaust parts with NA?

Post by YetiSmasher »

I need to pass emissions here soon and the previous owner had cut the mid pipe in half on my na 2.2. I have a complete 22t exhaust sitting in my back yard. Can I take the mid pipe and muffler off of that and slap it on my NA headers and go pads emissions?

Thanks in advance.

Don't know about the mid pipe but the mufflers are the same. I'd assume the mid pipe would be the same too.

I've confirmed this. THEY DO NOT MATCH.

Not true....as noted above. turbo piping is all bigger diameter, including the axle back+muffler.

You 'could' possibly use a reducer fitting to mix-n-match from the mid-pipe.
