    Do you mean the pipe that runs from the turbo unit to the cat?

    If so it's one part but has 2 cat's...a pre-cat and a normal cat. Your best bet would be to get onto Courtenay and buy a complete down pipe woithout the pre-cat.

    The reason it is so expensive is because of the 2 cats.

    I think...quite happy to be proved wrong though

    Is that the first cat if you have a younger z20let they started to make the precat separate from the main cat which should cost 180-200 for decat if it is an early z20let it's all one part ie both cats
