Factory exhaust different from FB to Ek ?

Post by buddynubb » Thu Jan 11, 2018 9:31 pm

Hi all, not sure if this sounds stupid, I ordered 2 factory replacement standard exhaust system through a wholesaler..we had to have them made as they had none already made, I said I needed the to fit my EK ute and a FB Van, both systems turned up 3 weeks later, identical, the were wrapped as 2 engine pipes together, matching, 2 mufflers-matching, & two tailpipes, agin matching..but when fitted the system up on the ute it appeared that the muffler was 100mm to short, so I rang the muffler shop and he say it won’t fit an EK..it was ordered for a FB.!
He said EK is different..I argued this and said well it’s the same manifold, engine mounts, floor pan(manual) yadda yadda!
Anyone any different..?
As low as you can get em with rag tyres,primer & dirty big cams!Perfect.

FB EK Manual are the same for sedans, however wagon and commercials had a different tail pipe (still same for FB and EK). EK automatic are entirely different to manual
