Does anyone know if 02 x50 exhaust is the same part as 04 x50 exhaust?

There have been some part number supersecessions, but all the X50 and GT2 models share the same muffler.


It's difficult to find used factory X50/GT2 mufflers, and there are many sellers out there misrepresenting what they are selling.


The factory part number on the turbo mufflers (both base model and X50/GT2) is stamped on the bottom side of the muffler case on the passenger side of the muffler.  Many sellers mistakenly identify the muffler part number by claiming one of the numbers from one of the heat shields is the muffler part number.  This is not the case.  The base turbo muffler will always have "027" as the seventh, eighth, and ninth digits of the 11 digit part number (e.g., 996 111 027 75), while the X50/GT2 factory muffler will have "987" instead of "027" as the corresponding digits (e.g., 996 111 987 76).  The X50/GT2 muffler has modified internal baffling for better flow to accommodate the higher performance of the X50/GT2 models.
