Default OEM Exhaust

Hi Folks
I want to return my 2006 s2000 exhaust system back to stock.
The car has an aftermarket cat back system fitted by previous owner.
Is there any differences between facelift/pre facelift OEM cat back systems.
There are pre facelift exhausts available nearby to me,will they fit my 2006 car ?

cheers

pre facelift has round tips vs facelift oval, and i believe the hangers are slightly different? I believe it will fit... but will look out of place on a facelift car.

I don't expect there are different exhausts for different markets. Based on the USDM models the exhausts are different breaking between the 2003 and 2004 cars. Most noticeably in the mid pipe area and the different tips. Rear hangers are different as well. Here's the 2004+ exhaust. The "thingie" (helmholtz resonator) at the arrow is different, as are the rear hangers and exhaust tips.

I'm doing this at the moment. I've fitted the oval tips to the pre facelift exhaust but the tips are too low. I think i need to switch the rubber hangers, I just haven't gotten around to figuring out what I need.

I was going to say there are usually loads on eBay, or the Fs section on here, except there aren't at the moment, if you can hang on I'm sure a facelift one will turn up soon.

Turns out I was using the wrong holes in the rear hangers.

So I was able to reuse the AP2 rear hangers, you just need to make sure you use the two holes that are the closet together.

I've fitted a preface lift exhaust with "the mod" on my 55 reg car with no probs. The hangers are slightly different but I've had mine on for 2 years now with no problems at all. I wanted to try the exhaust mod without sacrificing my oem exhaust. Bought for 40quid and sounds great. Plus still got my standard oval tipped exhaust to revert to whenever I want!
