Just bought a 2001 bug eye sportwagon

Hi Guys
Just bought a 2001 bug eye sportwagon last night.
Don't know anything about scoobies but really enjoyed the drive home!!!

It's got a BIG exhaust which I don't like and an induction kit.
Where can I get some standard bits for it?
Or what do you guys recommend?
Cheers

eBay always has bit on it. I would offer a swap on here too. Maybe someone looking that stuff may swap you the standard stuff so it won't cost you anything. You would prob need to find out what brand your stuff is first

Welcome aboard. Good choice. Nice to see another Wagon join the ranks.
I've got the standard back box off of my "02" Wagon if you want it.
Where abouts are you? You can have it for the cost of carriage (About 15)

Welcome to .org mate. As Malc said, glad to see another wagon !!
Get under it and let us know what you have, is it the back box or a complete de-cat system ?

Induction is a cone filter. Again, I want to put it back to standard.

I've been a bit suspicious of my car since I got it, hence no recent posts.
Its got a smell of oil (like dripping on exhaust but not burning through exhaust kinda smell) and doesn't seem as fast as it should be, so I've been weighing things up.
Came to the conclusion that I really like the car 'A LOT' (even wifey likes it, which is pretty amazing) so I'm going to keep her and stick to my plan of putting it back to standard (after all it would be a rare sight! Lol).
Exhaust, and airbox, then will get it on a diagnostic and probably get ECU reset then start from there. Last but defo not least, jack it up and find that leak!
MalcB I'd be well up for your exhaust if it's still available??

Hey Lil
I ain't gotta clue tbh!!!
It's a cone filter but I can't see the make or anything.
I'm trying to get a standard airbox, so once I take it off I'm pretty sure I'll find out!!
Re exhaust. Yes hopefully a result!!!!!!!
Boy people sure are friendly round here
