Question 240DL cat back 1 muffler

Hello TBers,
I have a question about 1 muffler "sport" cat back kits IPD sells for 240s.
Example: https://www.ipdusa.com/products/5608...n-turbo-models

How do they sound?
Has anyone actually installed one here?
Are the better than stock usual 2 muffler under exhaust system?

Thank you

Lots of people have. You will need to weld as clamps suck

Sounds good

Yes, that's not a bad setup for a n/a car (it is essentially a 240 Turbo exhaust).

IMO clamps aren't bad if you use good ones like this (link) / Walker 36433

Some exhaust sealing paste (Walker 35959) helps to prevent clamped connections from rusting together.

--------

You can also piece together 240T exhaust components to make your own sport system if you like.

muffler: 1306192
tailpipe: 1378215
under pipe: 1336287
intermediate pipe: 1306187
support bracket/hanger: 1306609

Would this setup be slightly bigger than the IPD sport system? I think I remember reading that the turbo setup has 60mm (2.36") piping while the IPD sport is 2.25".

If you can get original Volvo pipes then yes, they should be 60mm.

But in my experience if you order aftermarket Walker/Starla components they are 2.25".

Looks like the price would be around $200 with shipping, but you do get the option to get a different muffler which is good.

Put one on the wife's car.

Little louder than the stock system.

Works fine.

Thank you for kind replies, I will look into. Although 1st mufler replacing hanger is kind of weird thing, might need fabrication?

Is anything wrong with your current exhaust?

Not sure I follow.

When converting to a 1 muffler system, IMO you don't need to use the 1306609 bracket that supports the pipe at the front muffler location, but it is nice to have.

I have one, installed it a few months ago.

You get what you pay for. The parts came inside scuffed/scratched and the welds aren't the cleanest. A few dents here and there on the muffler.

IPD stated thats how they receive them from Starla. The stainless version would be much higher rebuild quality. The clamps it comes with leak, I'm planning on removing the exhaust, welding and reinstalling.

The exhaust itself sounds nice to me! It used to pop n cracked around low to mid 2000 rpms when letting off the gas, doesn't anymore. IDK why.

The bolt for the strap mount that goes right by the catalytic converter and connects to the exhaust fell out. I probably didn't tighten it enough.

Bottom line, it's cheap, does the job, fly's under the radar and isnt too hard to install.

Weld it or get better clamps if you don't want leaks.

Overall I'm happy with it, and it's so cheap I don't mind scraping. If you need a replacement go for it. Or piece your own together/hit up your local shop.

I still have original 30 years old sinking ship exhaust, recent discovery showed that it weld itself together and has couple small leaks.
