Hi all

Had a back box delivered today but its the wrong one at least the way its connected to the exhaust pipe.The one delivered has a straight pipe connection from the box whereas mine needs a bend before the connection coming from the box. I only paid 40% of the cost because of the error they stating it can be cut and welded (which I can do) however thinking further on I hope the box isn't internal different giving a different exhaust pattern. I know motorbike need remapping but not sure if the Jimny is the same. Any views on this? Has anyone experienced the same and had problem with engine lights firing up?
Cheers
Tony.

I doubt that any internal difference (if one does exist) will make any difference to the Jimny Engine. Modern closed loop fuel injection system are fairly good at keeping the engine running good with minor changes.
So if you can make it fit and want to go for it, me being lazy it feels like a lot of work compared to just obtaining the correct box.

Thanks Scimike,,I should of said the supplier cant get the type I need. It can be trouble over here by the Black Sea getting parts there very few Jimny's over here. I was thinking of cutting the existing pipe and slipping it into the socket end of the back box and either welding it or using black high temp silicon to seal the joint an hour or would be the time used up. Not so bad...

Ah - ok, I would do the same if unable to get the parts.

Nothing wrong with a home engineered solution.
