    Where's my cat?

    Ok according to a certain well known vauxhall tuning company I can get a Lexmaul manifold for my Z16XE that uses the OE cat for about £369 and a sports cat for about £250 so my question is this, If I can replace a manifold and use my OE cat where is the cat situated as the picture of the Lexmaul manifold shows the cat at the bottom after the bend to go under the car yet I always though the cat was on the downpipe from the manifold.

    Is this my cat (The big round thing in the middle under the heatshield):


    Or this bit (just after the 90 bend from the downpipe):

    The first picture shows the cat (the big canister) - it's part and parcel of the mainfold section. I suspect the well known tuning company was telling you gen for the older X16XE, which had the cat under the car.

    The second picture is of the flexi-joint, and an underslung cat would be to the rear of that
