Good quality reproduction product. Fits all 'late' 1600cc VW T2s from 1972 to 1979. It can also be fitted on earlier T2s, as long as the tailpipe is changed for part J10427 at the same time. In any case, we recommend renewing the tailpipe and gaskets when you change your exhaust.

  • Fiddly to fit but sounding great once it was fitted.

    All parts for my T2 exhaust replacement arrived on time as promised as per usual which is great. I watched a really useful you tube vid of a chap replacing the muffler on a 1973 beetle in the US in preparation for fitting mine. Well worth a watch before fitting a new one to your bus. One tip on the you tube vid is to heat the mounting studs with a blow torch where the muffler attaches to the engine block before you try to undo the nuts. Mine looked quite rusty so with fire extinguisher close at hand I heated the nuts before releasing them and they all twisted off quite easily. Fitting the muffler was fiddly and lining the heat risers up had me scratching my head for quite some time! In the end I loosened every thing off and then used a bottle Jack horizontal against the sub frame to gently move the heat riser into position above the holes in the muffler before putting the bolts through. With everything tightened up and back in place my bus sounds great but it did take me all day to complete.

  • Struggling a bit

    Quality product but struggled last night to fit the new unit - just reading the response to someone else's feedback it seems like the problems I am having are down to me not slackening the heat exchangers. No mention of this in the Haynes manual. It seems impossible to get the flanged connections to the heat exchangers together with the mesh gaskets and cup rings into the clamp bolts. Will try slackening the heat exchangers at the weekend...yes a how to video would be cool.

    Thank you for your review, fitting these exhausts is fairly straight forward as has been mentioned if everything is loose fitted then tightened up you should have no issues. The flanged connectors can appear fiddly but once you have worked them out they will all go together like most thing these get easier with experience. Thanks JK
  • Challenging

    Despite the the well packaged and quality, this item needed manipulating , re fabricating ,realigning and plenty of patience by 3 experienced technicians
    Manufacturing needs reviewing . On a good note looks and sounds good so far !

    Thank you for your review. We don't have any problems fitting these exhausts there is a specific way the job must be carried out. Firstly both heat exchangers need to be loosened where they bolt to the heads. We also advise the inlet manifold is loosened allowing movement of the pre heats etc. Once these are loose then fit the new gaskets in place and then the back bock to the front cylinder head studs and the heat exchangers. Once in place fit all the clamps and bolts then gently and evenly tighten all the fittings including the pre heats and clamps. This allows the box to pull down evenly. If you attempt to fit the back box without slackening the heat exchangers in our experience you will struggle to fit the exhaust.
    I will ask our workshop if we can do a how to on fitting these exhaust systems

    Thanks Pete

    • Hi, I am looking to replace my rusty exhaust system on my 73' model T2. Basically I want to know what the quietest solution is as I am trying to keep the cabin noise as quiet as I can get it. Is it this one or one of the empi ones or another?
    • Answer: The standard exhausts are the quietest. Have you thought about sound deadening?
