Sorry didn't mean to offend but it seemed you were trying to split a penny.

In years gone by the trick was to find a good 240T exhaust for ~$30 in the JY and adapt that, but those cars aren't really around anymore, and if one hits it's generally pretty field ratty and rough.

I went with all new genuine 60 mm 240 Turbo Volvo exhaust from GCP through Tasca and it was [only ?] $257 shipped to my door and the muffler is @ twice the weight of the walker stuff.

It's a little more money but it won't slip over a 2" stock pipe and fit nice and snug, so I recommended the 2.25" stuff since it's going on an NA car, adapts easier, is cheaper and more readily available.

[Read no waiting ~ 2 months for the GCP goose in Sweden to lay the OE 240T 'golden egg']



All that said you could get a quote at your friendly local neighborhood exhaust shop, or PM stevE85 who now has a nice little exhaust shop in Benicia and does excellent work.

No worries. Good info, thanks Ken. I've still been on the hunt for a 240 and thought I may have found it but it sold before I could get down to see it. The search continues, lol.

Did I mention that a 240 Turbo only has one muffler out back?

Plus the 10% larger tubing going from 2" to 2.25" will have a 56% larger cross sectional area so it should be well worth doing for what it costs.

Yeah, plus it sounds better too. On my last 240, I had 2.25" after the car with no resonators and a Thrush turbo muffler and besides having better breathing to go with the can, I loved the exhaust note.
