Just brought a 1994 2.0 16v Ecotec Astra Gsi and the joint between the down pipe and the CAT is blowing. The exhaust manifold and down pipe are all in one(4,2,1 Branch manifold), and it is this part which is cracked at the joint.
The cheapest quote i have had for a new one is £300 fitted. This price is F**kin ridiculous. Does any one know of a cheaper alternative.
Would welding a new flange on solve the problem or would it just blow again in 3 months time. Any one got any suggestions - anything is better than shelling out £300!!
