If it fits then it fits. Exhausts are just pipes.

What I also think is that you'll gain absolutely no power whatsoever unless you make other changes to the engine or engine management.

Diesels tend to have massive exhausts anyway so I agree with HDI on this one.

It's probably because of all the crud they spew out! ;) (That should get someone going eh Hdi!!!:D)

I suppose you need a big pipe so that it takes a long time for it to finally block up with soot and crud.

I don't have any problems 'cos mine's got one of the fancy particle filter systems. This is effectively a mobile, horizontal chimney fire when its in regeneration phase.

Personally I'd rather have the soot - great way to shift tailgaters, smoke 'em out.

For the most part the oil stays inside the engine. Unless, of course I managed to spill the stuff everywhere. Then it looks like a proper diesel with clouds of smoke pouring from underneath :) :)
