hey guys, im wondering would the exhaust off my old EB fairmont sedan go onto an EA falcon wagon without alot of hassle?
tail section is not a problem as i dont have one so will be making one up anyway but is front section fairly similar/the same?
its a 3.9L
thanks
Dylan

I THINK! (open to correction here)
the centre piece between cat and rear tailpipe are a little longer for wagons and LWBs
And the tail pipe is different.

When I did my exhaust I used a falcon centre pipe but had to add about 50-100mm of pipe to make it a little longer.

If you have a welder and scrap pieces of pipe (the tailpipe?) you should be able to make it work..

the front from the cat 2 the middle muffler will fir with no hassle at all. the tail pipe is longer for a wagon & lwb, a new one will need to be made up.

Aah, so the tail pipe is longer to the front of the car rather than the centre pipe bein longer to the rear.

On my redback exhaust on my EB wagon the centre part is the same as a sedan system. I had them both and was able to compare them.

The rear is very different.

Considering you should be able to get the rear section quite cheap, it would be worth asking at your local exhaust place.

Cheers

I was thinking about it last night, and remembered in my repco days, looking in the walker exhaust book did list the centre pipe as same Part number (al5-xxxx) just the tailpipes were different numbers.

Makes sense, saves completely refabricatin specific exhaust systems for each model. Just edit the tail pipe. Also easyer to get the parts too.
