Has my stock cat been extended? HELP PLEASE!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,   Your help here is greatly appreciated.   Have replaced my stock cats with Torqen HFCs but the Y-Pipe now fouls on the transmission brace.  The Y-Pipe is an aftermarket stainless steel one (no idea of brand).  Have my stock cats been extended at the end?  Is the Y-Pipe incorrect?  Torqen assure me the HFCs are correct. 652951461_fitmentissues.png.ca0c6d40f19fa3f0676411220522ed90.png

Here's a close up pic of the stock cats.  The weld looks too messy to be from the factory so they've been extended to fit the Y-Pipe?

Looking at images on the web and yours , your cats have definitely been extended Neil 

so I’d say your y pipe is custom too and not standard :wacko:

@SHEZZA Cheers mate. 

 

Its a strange one.  I can only assume the pervious owner bougth a cheap Y-Pipe and it didn't fit.  The exhaust fitter must have extended the cats as it's easier to weld mild steel than stainless?

Definitely looks like it has been extended. Time to find a Y pipe.

Looking at stock cats on eBay for sale I can’t believe how much there going for ! Is this a wind up ? I’ve been holding onto mine but seriously considering selling them if you can get £600 plus for them :scare:
