  • Calling all the vxr guru's!!!

    I've tried to fit the Remus 3 piece but can't fit the downpipe that came with it. Does my 2007 corsa vxr have a A16 engine or a Z16? It should have a Z16 but There's nowhere to fit this downpipe between the flexi pipe and manifold. Not sure how to add pictures. Any help will be very much appreciated

    for that age its the Z16 LER, later models around 2010 were the A16 LER, and the Burgs and Clubsport are the A16 LES.

        Should be 3 bolts in a triangle pattern on the remus 3 piece IIRC. Downpipe then connects to the Turbo with a v band clip.

          Do you see the triangle fitting in the end of the flexi pipe in the pic u just showed me? My downpipe has the same 3 bolt triangle fitting yet it won't go on the end of the flexi pipe.
          Thanks for getting back to me btw

            Have you tried fitting it together off the car? To make sure it does fit together. Try just attaching the bolts lightly and then see how the downpipe lines up with the manifold that way.

            I know with my old Remus on my Astra I had to fit the downpipe to the flexi/cat section before I attached it to the turbo as it just wouldn't line up otherwise.

              I have the back box and the centre piece along with the downpipe with no flexi pipe(im using the stock one as it's the same) so I can't connect the downpipe to any of it to line it up

                  According to my hand book mines is an A16 LES, mines is a 14plate.

                  Even states Corsa VXR - A16 LER, and , Corsa VXR Nurburgring Edition - A16 LES. As the Burgs and Clubsports use a different turbocharger and engine map from regular VXR's.

                    The later downpipes still have a vaugely triangular flange but the bolt holes are not identically spaced.

                    I think most likely explanation is you have an aftermarket flexi section for a later car, considering everything else goes together using the standard flexi.

                    You should post a picture up of the flange to be sure.

                    Where did you get the exhaust from - new or used? Could just be a genuine mistake by the seller.

                        All the Remus stuff in your video looks Z16 so that is ok.

                        If you send me a photo of your flexi (see PM) i wil upload it
