The center resonator has quite a few holes at this point. Though welded shut I assume this will continue to a problem. What are people doing about turbo muffler parts these days? Anyone remaking them?

Unless you need the side exit, then you will have to cut and weld on a proper extension, sometimes using the old pipe if it is not too rusty.

Of course I have a side exit version. Though there is a center muffler and pipe fitted at this point.

I just replaced my whole exhaust system for similar reasons. Carl Nelson ordered the late version from BMW in Germany and modified to suit my ‘74. Works, fits and sounds great.

I was searching my archives and came upon this company in England making exhausts, though no side exit, you might be able to convince them to do so.

Forgive my ignorance, what's the side exit discussed here? Any pictures??

I believe the turbo 2002 was equipped with either a center or right side muffler configuration (at the rear apron).  A true "side exit" exhaust is typically found on race cars.
