    Hi there!

    I am considering going for a straight pipe on my disco 2 td5 2003 automatic. People advised me to not only change the mid silencer to a straight pipe but also go for a decat front downpipe. Now since I live in Belgium and British parts take a looong time to get here I am thinking about this.

    I have a donor disco 2 from 2001. Is it possible to take the decat front down pipe from the donor car and put it on my 2003 disco ? Will it fit or are there differences in the 2 front pipes ?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Manu.

    Nice! That will save me some money to for not having to buy a new decat front down pipe!

    Thanks a lot! Now I do have a other issue with my td5. If I kick down my disco (gas pedal pushed fast in) my car stutters. Tomorrow i will change my diesel filter and check for a sticky waste gate but are there other things to check ?

    Check that you ECU inside the engine bay doesn’t have oil in or on the electrical connectors.

    Check inlet hoses for leaks as well.
