: .... Since the double vanos is there for environmental/exhaust reasons, I would assume there are some differences to the exhaust itself (besides just the tailpipe). So those 3rd party places that made cat-back exhausts for the 2.8 might have to make some adjustments for the new exhaust on the slightly different 2.8

robert is right....sorry to you 99 owners who want catback exhausts, since the engines are now double VANOS they have moved the cats up next to the engine instead of in the middle of the car....so...aftermarket catback makers are going to have to go back to the drawing board :(
