Default NA vs Turbo Tailpipe

My 84' 245T is being restored and wanted to know if the tailpipes (S pipe) are the same for NA and turbo models? Looks like the turbo Starla ones are backed ordered with no ETA. The NA pipe looks the same but didn't know if the ID/OD are different.

Not the same. n/a is 2 inches and turbo is 2 1/4. I believe you can order the s pipe from Volvo.

Try VP Autoparts. They probably have it available. Not a common part so if it's available order it and be patient.

VP sells the "L" shaped pipe and the website says it's in stock.

https://vp-autoparts.com/en/artiklar...9et_b21et.html

Here's an "S" shaped pipe in Germany.

I may have an "S" shaped pipe. It looks correct but the part number tag has fallen off.

What is the purpose of the S shape, anyway?

Probably to move it away from trunk/tailgate area for leg safety. Also if you accidentally back into the hard object the S pipe will bend instead of stressing the exhaust manifold.

Take it to an exhaust shop and have them do what they do best?
